Vegan Chili 

I am so happy to finally share this recipe! 

Ingredients 

1 medium yellow onion, diced 

6 cloves garlic, minced  

1 large red bell pepper, diced 

1 ½ large green bell pepper, diced 

1 large sweet potato, diced 

1 can red kidney beans, rinsed 

1 ¼ cup dry lentils, rinsed 

1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes 

2 cups vegetable broth

½ jar of tomato passata 

1 tbsp tomato paste 

Pinch of sugar [to cut the acidity just a little]

Seasoning blend (you will not use all of this unless you want to): 1 tbsp kosher salt, 1 tbsp kosher pepper, ½ tbsp cumin, ½ tbsp ancho chili powder, 1 tsp New Mexico chili powder, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp hot paprika, ½ tsp dried oregano. 

Cilantro for garnish

Toppings of your choice 

Directions 

In a large pot or dutch oven, heat a few tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. 

Once the oil has come to temperature, add in the garlic, onions, and diced peppers.

Season with the seasoning blend and cook until the onions become translucent. 

Once the onions are translucent, add in the vegetable broth, crushed tomatoes, passata, and sweet potatoes. 

Season as desired. 

Bring the mixture to a boil.

Once boiling, add in the lentils and red kidney beans.

Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to a simmer, and allow the lentils to cook thoroughly, stirring occasionally for about 25 minutes. 

After 20-25 minutes, remove the lid, add in the tomato paste. Stir to incorporate. 

Taste and season according to your preference. 

Add in the pinch of sugar to balance the flavors. 

Let the chili thicken uncovered for a few minutes. 

Serve while hot, garnished with your favorite toppings. 

Enjoy!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes 

There are one million and one ways to make roasted sweet potatoes. They are one of the most versatile vegetables and can be dressed up in many ways ranging from savory to sweet. Here is just one way that I like to prepare these for meal prep. 

Ingredients 

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 

Seasoning blend: 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp black pepper, ½ tbsp lemon granules, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp freshly ground nutmeg, 1 tsp ancho chili powder, 1 ½ tsp Herbs de Provence, ½ tsp smoked paprika. 

Olive oil 

Directions 

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, arrange your sweet potatoes into a single layer. 

Drizzle a layer of olive oil over the potatoes and then sprinkle over the seasoning blend (you may or may not use all of it – if you don’t, save the rest from chicken, it’s incredible). 

Using your hands, toss the potatoes so that they are evenly coated. 

Roast in the oven until the insides are tender when pierced with a toothpick.

NOTE: For meal prep, I tend to “under roast” my potatoes because I do not want them to become too soft after reheating for a meal. 

Divide into meal prep containers after the potatoes have cooled. 

Enjoy! 

I finally perfected my chocolate chip cookie recipe ! 🍪 I made 3 batches instead of doing readings (that I did later 😇) yesterday afternoon ! They’re HCLF, oil-free and delicious ! Here’s the recipe : Chocolate Chip cookies (makes 20) 2 cup wholewheat flour,
¾ cup sugar, ¾ cup plant based milk (I use soy)
½ mashed banana
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Mash the banana and combine with the wet ingredients and the sugar. Put the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient bowl. Fold in the chocolate chips and combine well. In a non-stick plate or an oven rack lined with parchment paper, scoop one tablespoon of mixture until there is no dough left. Cook for 9-11mn until golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool down before enjoying !

I posted a new ‘What I Eat In A Day’-video on my Youtube channel! It shows how I make my oatmeal, a veggie/tofu/rice noodle stir fry with peanut sauce and my current obsession, a ‘cheesy’ bean sauce :)

10 Meal Ideas for Broke College Students

Long hours on campus can be grueling, especially on an empty stomach. Cafeteria and vending machine food is always extremely pricey, and it’s almost impossible to get a decent, affordable meal on a budget. I’ve created a list of 10 meal ideas for college students to bring to school with them to stay fed and sane. Each meal should cost $2 or less, an average of $10/week.

The ingredients listed are meant to be bought in bulk and parceled out to save money. Tupperware containers are also assumed to be available. Check the Dollar Tree for great deals on Tupperware!

10 College Meal Ideas for under $2

~ Canned soup ($1.25), ziplock of mixed veggies ($.25), tbsp hummus ($.25)

~ Egg salad sandwich ($1.25), handful of mixed nuts ($.75)

~ Protein bar ($1), tbsp peanut butter
($.25)

~ Caesar salad (from salad kit, bring half in Tupperware save other half for dinner) ($1) , add ½ avocado and fresh tomato slices for ($1)

~ 2 Baja Cafe burritos ($1), ziplock of tortilla chips ($.25), tbsp salsa, dip or hummus ($.75)

~ Grilled cheese ($1), tomato soup ($1)

~ Small grilled and sliced chicken breast ($1.50), roasted veggies and brown rice ($.50)

~ 2 slices of pizza (from frozen) ($1), ziplock of baby carrots ($.50), tbsp ranch dressing ($.25)

~ Frozen entree (Lean Cuisine, Hungry Man, etc.) ($2)

I have been struggling trying to budget for this upcoming school year, so I hope this helps out some other starving students (and everyone else!)
