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

This is basically a layered enchilada.

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)

This is our go-to breakfast/lunch/dinner meal! There are so many options and they all turn out amazing :)

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
I love this creation from Delish Knowledge!

Prepare Rice or Rice Noodles or Bean Glass Noodles of choice.
Baked Crispy Tofu - cube tofu & bake at 375 until crispy
Veggies of Choice - Carrots, Bell Peppers, Cucumber, Broccoli, Kale, etc*

Since I had 1/2 of a jar of crushed tomatoes left from making the stuffed peppers, I decided this was also a good week to make spaghetti squash. I usually just add ingredients to boost a jar of spaghetti sauce (or do a roasted tomato one), but I took the chance on a spaghetti sauce with the crushed tomatoes.
This is big for me because I actually really don't like tomatoes when they resemble/taste like a tomato. I'm even known for picking...
I finally did it! I finally made stuffed peppers! And I totally miss-judged the rice/pepper ratio, but I ended up with lots of yummy Spanish Rice left over.
As always, I didn't follow a recipe (and I'm writing this post a little late) so I'll do my best to remember the recipe, but please play with the ingredients and spice level on your own :)
1 C Rice - cook as directed
1/2 Red Onion
1/2 block Organic Firm Tofu -...
I'm a bit of a documentary nerd. I absolutely love documentaries - usually the ones about food, the climate, discovery, our societal impacts at home and around the world, and scientific research.
Most of my documentaries are watched on Netflix and through CBC. I also try to read and educate myself on these topics. Now, I am not a scientist, nor am I a doctor. I did not spend years learning research methods, and I always have to look up...
