VEGAN SAUSAGE + PEPPERS
.
This is a classic turned vegan and healthy!!! I actually love sausage do being vegetarian / vegan can be hard … but this vegan sausage makes it so easy! It actually tastes just like sausage and browns amazingly. To add sweetness to this dish I added a few tablespoons of my date paste. The instructions to make date paste will be on my story. If you do not have dates you can use maple syrup or if you do not want any sweetness you can just use sriracha! If you want to make this the recipe will be below!
.
Recipe:
-1 pepper
-1 vegan sausage (from Trader Joe’s)
-1 tbsp tomato paste
-1/2 yellow onion
-2 tbsp date paste
-red pepper flakes
-salt + pepper
-drizzle of sriracha

Pesto on pasta on pesto on more pasta … pesto pasta!

Lately I have not been cooking a lot, which shocked me as I thought that being home would make me cook more, but I guess not! I think that it’s more the school work I have that has been shifting my priority from cooking fun meals to studying … meh. BUT don’t worry! There are still so many fast and easy recipes that you can make if you are in the same situation. These recipes are not vegan (Ik I’m sorry) but they are vegetarian and relatively healthy!

CAULIFLOWER ONION SALAD
.
This recipe combines all my favorite flavors: onion, onion, and more onion. Did I mention that I love onion? For this recipe I not only roasted a yellow onion, but added a decent amount of onion powder and @traderjoes onion salt (highly recommend). To the roast I added cauliflower and chickpeas. I roasted them in the airfryer for about 10 mins, but you can also roast in the oven (I recommend drizzling with olive oil If you do that). I topped this with @traderjoes spicy cashew dressing and some grape rainbow tomatoes. The base of this salad was arugula which added that peppery crunch. I also squeezed some lemon juice on top for some freshness:) head on below for the full recipe! Thank you for supporting this account !!!

“SOY CURLS AND BRUSSELS”
.
I don’t know about you, but I never heard of soy curls until recently and when I did I decided to purchase them on amazon right away! I will admit they sat in my pantry for about 2 months because I had no idea what to do with them, but recently I decided to open them up and give them a try and they are amazing! They are basically just soy protein shaped into chicken like pieces. All you do is soak them in water then either sauté them in a pan with oil or roast them in the airfryer like I did. Anyways, if you are interested in the recipe please scroll below:)
.
Reciped:
-Brussels
-soy curls
-sriracha
-broccoli (I used frozen)
-tamari
-salt and pepper
-sesame oil
-everything but the bagel seasoning
-cauliflower rice ( I didn’t have it, but it would be so good with this!)
*i just mixed everything together and roasted them in the airfryer for about 15 mins at 350! You can roast in the oven as well, but I recommend pan frying the soy curls if you don’t have an airfryer.

HEALTHY 8 ingredient BANANA BREAD.
.
I was just craving something sweet last night as I was watching Ratatouille (Yes the Disney movie) and since I am leaving for break soon I had just about nothing to work with except with some flour, sugar, overripe bananas, baking soda, aquafaba (leftover chickpea juice), maple syrup, some slivered almonds, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and coconut oil, but turns out that’s all I needed for this recipe! I made this in about 5 minutes popped it in the oven for 45 mins and ate about half of it right when it came out of the oven, after topping it with plenty of banana slices and drizzling it with maple syrup. I was so surprised by how good this was. I mean it was amazing (me eating 1/2 of it as evidence). If you want to give this recipe a try (which I recommend you do) scroll down!
Recipe:
-6 tablespoons of aquafaba
-2-3 ripe bananas
-1/4 cup water or plant based milk
-1/4 cup coconut oil
-1/2- 3/4 cup of sugar: brown, cane, coconut, etc.
-1/8 cup maple syrup (optional)
-2 cups flour (I used whole wheat, but oat of regular will work too)
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/8 cup cocoa powder (optional)
-3 tsps cinnamon (optional)
-3 tsps vanilla extract
-vanilla bean extract **
-1 tsp salt
-almonds to top
* I got vanilla bean extract from Trader Joe’s. You can use the tiniest bit and it adds so much flavor.
.
Instructions:
-whip aquafaba until white peaks form
-add banana and mash
-add all other ingredients and mix
-place in bread pan or reg cake pan like I did and coat with coconut oil to make sure it doesn’t stick
-bake at 350 for 45-50 mins until toothpick comes out clean
ENJOY!

LAST NIGHTS MEAL • FALL FILLED SOUP 🙂

Nothing says fall like butternut squash soup. This recipe was so easy! I put everything in one pot and while it did take about and hour to cook, I didn’t have to do anything besides stir it occasionally! Also I added some fun toppings like cranberries and roasted pepita seeds because why not. Oh also I have a new obsession with coconut flakes so I roasted those and added them on the side (not pictured). See the recipe for all the components below:

.

Butternut squash soup:
-1 butternut squash
-1 yellow onion
-3-4 cups vegetable broth
-2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
-salt and pepper (2 tbsp)
-2-3 tbsp maple syrup or honey
-rosemary (fresh is way better, 4 tbsp chopped)
-garlic clove chopped finely (or 2 tbsp garlic powder)
-1 cup quinua
.
Now time for the cauliflower which I put in the soup. (Make double to use as a spread for the bread!)
-1/2-3/4 cauliflower
-rosemary (3 tbsp chopped)
-2 tbsp olive oil
-2 tbsp nutritional yeast
– 2 tbsp black pepper
-1 tbsp garlic powder
.

Phineas and (f)HERB

First of all, GREAT show,
Second of all, there are some GREAT herbs in this dish. First my favorite, basil. I recently bought a basil plant from @traderjoes which I highly recommend since they are so affordable so ofc I used a whole lot of basil leaves in this recipe. I also bought a rosemary plant (which as you know is my newfound obsession) so I used a whole lot of that in this Italian dish as well. And because no Italian dish is complete without garlic, I added some roasted garlic cloves to the “Italian portion” of the dish as well. FYI the Italian portion of the dish is the tomato and quinua part. The other component of this meal was some nutritional yeast and garlic roasted asparagus and my leftover rosemary potato salad (which has a whole post dedicated to it) so I will just be sharing the recipes for the quinua and tomato combo (don’t know what else to call it lol) and the asparagus. Anyways scroll down to see the recipes!


The “Italian part”
-grape tomatoes
-kale
-rosemary
-basil
-garlic cloves

Instructions:
-add olive oil to a pan with the grape tomatoes and onion
-after cooking the above for a few minutes add in the roasted tomatoes, pre cooked quinua, and finely chopped rosemary and basil
-at the same time drizzle 2 tbsp olive oil and some sea salt to the kale and garlic cloves and throw tomatoes them into the airfryer or into the oven to roast until the kale is crisp and the cloves are browned
-once the contents in the oven / airfryer are done add them to the pan / pot mixture and serve right after combined
-add salt and red pepper flakes to taste
