Last night I made whole wheat spaghetti with some caramelized onions and greens. I had a vision, but it didn't end up being very tasty. It was heavily dependent on salt for flavor. Oh well! At least it was healthy. It looks better than it actually was, so I will spare you the unsuccessful recipe.
mm-mmm-mmm! Here was today's fast & delicious lunch! I stir fried up some diced butternut squash with some cumin, then added half a can of kidney beans and some left over white rice. I tossed in some water and cooked until the squash was completely tender. Then I added in the juice of half a life, about 1/4 c fresh salsa, and a handful of chopped cilantro. Yum yum yum! Try it! It's delicious and speedy.
I am too lazy to rotate this picture! Ha ha. I've been really enjoying the fruit smoothies lately. This one had some mango/apple juice, some frozen peaches, strawberries, ollaliberries, and bananas. Plus, a scoop of the cool Omega 3 stuff I got from vegan essentials. Yum!
Tonight for dinner I cooked up a quick and veggie-ful quinoa salad. It's got quinoa (obviously!), steamed carrots, steamed chiogga beets, frozen peas and carrots (boiled), toasted almond slivers, fresh tomatoes, and cilantro. Plus a lime-cumin-coriander-scallion-cilantro dressing. Very tasty & nice to see such a colorful meal. I love the one-plate meals.
