Sweet potatoes just got even better😛😛 stuffed with spicy ‘refried’ beans, grilled mushrooms, corn, raw salsa, avo, fresh parsley + a drizzle of sriracha. Flavour EXPLOSION👌🏼💥🌿 and so easy to make too! You can find the recipe in my Ebook (link is in my bio)💛
My AP test? Beasted. My pre-calculus test? Well…let’s just not talk about that.
I have an interesting lineup of food for the course of the next few days, but first, a sandwich. A grilled cheese sandwich. Not just any grilled cheese sandwich, but one with [toaster]oven-roasted mushrooms, green bell peppers, and onions.
2 slices of oat bran bread
1 slice of pepper jack or cheddar cheese
thin sliced green bell pepper, onion, and mushrooms
1. brush the peppers, onions, and mushrooms with the garlic butter and then oven-roast them in a small pan. I used my toaster oven because y'know, convenience. Should take about 5 minutes at 375 degrees.
2. place the cheese on a slice of bread and put the roasted stuff on top of it. then cover with the other slice of bread.
3. normal grilled cheese sandwiching will now ensue (spread some butter on the bread and toast in a skillet)
What I like
about the whole foods/ plant based diet, is that since it mostly consists of
grains and veggies, meals are super easy to make for on-the-go. One of my
favorite on-the-go lunches is the Grilled Veggie Wrap. It’s super simple and
quick but will keep you full and satisfied. Perfect for those quick lunch
breaks, or enjoy with some chips and juice for a nice relaxed lunch.
½ a green
½ a bell
1 cup of
cooked brown rice
A spoon of
Cut up the vegetables, in rather big chunks, and seasoning with some
salt & pepper. Then put on pan to grill. Grill each side for about 2-3
minutes each on high flame. This will give it a nice charred look while also
softening the flavor.
Then, in a pot, throw in your rice, seasonings and siracha. Toss around
until the rice catches the flavor. I used chipotle, hot pepper seasoning and
some breadcrumbs (for texture).
Now to put your wrap together. Start off by spreading your red pepper
dressing on your wrap. Red pepper dressing just consists of blending red bell
peppers with oil, water and seasoning.
Then throw the veggies and rice onto your wrap.
Lastly, wrap it up! (no pun intended) and enjoy!
Like I said,
super easy. And very much whole foods/ plant based. I think it is really important
to eat food like this because that is how you can learn to appreciate the
actual flavors of the veggies. A lot of people feel that without meat there
isn’t going to be any flavor or anything “meaty” to look forward to. But if you
make vegetables a certain way, such as cut in big chunks and just lightly
grilled, you enter a whole new flavor palette. And that is exciting.
tiamowry So excited about this Sunday’s episode! I’m bringing over @nayarivera @rich_paul22 @gabrielle_dennis and @mcphonz to munch and mingle. After picking up some cook party pieces from my friend Cassandra, I’m setting up a classic cocktail bar for the party. I’m making Bourbon Sours to toast with over Grilled Mushroom Flatbread, Lamb Meatballs with Gremolata and Cornbread Madeleines with Ancho Chile Butter. Get ready for some amazing fun! 👍🏽
