Lentil burgers and Tomato Bisque! These recipes were both vegan and if you go bun-less like I did and use certified oats, it’s also gluten free! Most of the ingredients are pretty cheap and accessible, which is very important to my cooking mantra.
Lentil Burger: lentils, parsley, lemon zest/juice, garlic, red onion, serrano, oat flour (ground from rolled oats), salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, and cardamom.
Roasted Red Pepper and Tahini spread (it’s kind of hiding back there): This can be used as a sandwich spread or to dress a small salad as I’ve done here. Roasted red pepper, a small container of coconut milk yogurt, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and tahini.
Tomato Bisque: olive oil,onion, carrot, celery, garlic, russet potato (thickener) salt, pepper, basil, crushed tomato, diced tomato (add last after blending), vegetable stock, coconut milk (from can), and a touch of sweetness from cherry wine. Use a sweet red wine or omit if the cherry wine is rare where you live. I’m in Michigan so we’re swimming in the stuff!
½ cup brown rice (100 g) 8 mushrooms 1 cup chopped cauliflower (100 g) 1 cup unsweetened oat or rice milk (250 ml) 1 tbsp lemon juice 2 tsp garlic powder 2 tsp onion powder 6 tbsp nutritional yeast ½ tsp sea salt Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
Sweaty, red-face gym selfie! Went for a half hour steep incline walk tonight to try and strengthen my ankle. Not quite up for running anytime soon, but I want to build it back up so I eventually can. Spent 10 minutes climbing stairs too! My face was so red afterwards, this pic doesn’t do it justice. My Parkway Drive Pandora channel has proven the best for workouts, it really gets me hype to go longer.
