There's this coconut curry turmeric soup at a local restaurant in Vancouver that is what cravings are made of...and that restaurant is currently closed due to COVID-19.
So, I took it upon myself to attempt my own version, knowing that I was missing one of the key ingredients.
1 tsp Coconut Oil
1/2 Onion (chopped)
2 inch Ginger
2-4 cloves Garlic (depending on size)
1 1/2 Tbsp Turmeric
1 Tbsp Curry Powder
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
2/3 block Medium or...
I've made this a few times now and I FINALLY wrote down the proportions!
This is a super warm and comforting Indian-inspired dish based on Butter Chicken, but it's 100% vegan!
Seasoned Tofu & Cauliflower
I have mixing bowls with lids so I put all these ingredients into the bowl, put the lid on and shake. Let sit while you...
I don't know what I was going for when I created this, but somehow it came together!
I was thinking about a vegetable soup, then I was thinking a minestrone which led to some black beans...anyway, it turned into some type of southwest inspired soup/stew thing and I'm not mad about it!
Instant Pot Black Beans
1 C Dried Black Beans (no need to soak)
1 3/4 C Vegetable Broth (I've been using this one recently)
1 piece of Kombu (this helps us...
A while ago I had tried making a vegan mac & cheese with a primarily cashew-based recipe. It was good, but it was dense! It was so heavy and I had a hard time eating more than a small amount.
I gave up for a while, then recently came across this recipe.
I've used it as a base, but modified a bit (as I tend to do).
1 C Carrot (peeled)
1 C Potatoes (peeled)
1/3 C Onion
1 C Water
2(ish) C Macaroni Noodles (I use Go Go Quinoa)
This one has a lot of components, but each is really simple. The dressing was definitely some trial and error so I'll do my best to provide the best guide I can, but please taste-test and adjust as you need!
Make a cup of Quinoa - I added some lemon juice to the water, just because.
I used Minimalist Baker's Vegan Parm recipe for this one.
3/4 C Cashews
3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
3/4 tsp Salt
The inspiration for this came from Erin Ireland and I loosely used a recipe from The Mediterranean Dish for the potatoes.
Lemony Greek Potatoes
4-6 White Potatoes - diced; I left the skin on
1 Lemon - juiced
1 C Veggie Broth
2 cloves Garlic - crushed
2 Tbsp Olive Oil - drizzled on the potatoes
1-2 Tbsp Paprika
2 tsp Rosemary (or another herb you like)
Salt & Pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Place the potatoes into a baking dish - I...
This is basically a layered enchilada.
Cube yam/sweet potato
Toss in Cumin, Chili Powder, Paprika
Bake at 375 for approximately 15 minutes (until tender)
Cube Zucchini, Bell Peppers (mixture of choice) for about 1 cup
1/3 cup frozen corn
1 can refried beans
Place a small amount of Enchilada Sauce on the bottom of a baking dish (square for more layers, or lasagna for fewer layers)
Layer: Corn Tortilla, Refried...
A simple vegan Mexican-inspired tostada for those leftover refried beans!
Dice Veggies - Zucchini, Bell Peppers, etc
Spread Refried Beans on your wrap of choice (gf/wheat/corn)
Layer diced Veggies
Bake at 375 until the wrap crisps
Remove from the oven and add diced Avocado & some Salsa
I had a random memory of lemon pasta and decided to give it a try! This is a simple, basic recipe that you can add/subtract/change as needed.
Cook your choice of noodles as directed - I love GoGo Quinoa for a GF option
Diced Veggies of choice (Zucchini, Bell Peppers, Peas, etc)
Juice of 1 Lemon
Salt & Pepper
While the noodles are cooking, lightly sauté the Veggies with crushed Garlic, Salt & Pepper
I have a couple of curry cauliflower soups I use on occasion. I also play around with various Thai curry soups. Last night, I meshed together a few ideas and recipes and came up with this warm veggie soup.
1-2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 medium Yellow Onion - diced
1-2 inch Ginger - peeled & minced
1-2 cloves Garlic - crushed
2 Tbsp Curry Powder - to taste so more/less if needed
1-2 Tbsp Turmeric
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Garlic Powder
240 ml Veggie Broth
