Since becoming a mom of two kids, I find that I don't post on here as much as I used to. However, I still take pictures of most of the food I make, especially meals for the kids. I will try to at least post the pictures with brief descriptions to continue sharing what a vegan and her family eats! Please feel free to contact me for a recipe! Enjoy!
I don't care that it was a perfectly hot summer day today -- I wanted to make this soup! I didn't even do any menu planning or grocery shopping this week, but I had a sweet potato, and that's all I knew. Thus, this soup.
I quickly googled a recipe and found this one from Forks Over Knives:
I just happened to spot this jar of vegan Alredo sauce while I was shopping at Sprouts, and I had to try it. I keep meaning to make a homemade version of vegan Alfredo sauce, but this just seemed so much easier! (Have I mentioned lately that I've been really lazy with cooking lately?)
Earlier today I took the jar out of the pantry and set it on the counter in preparation for tonight's meal. Well, as a nice surprise, I came out of the room this evening to a fully-made meal of spaghetti with vegan Alfredo sauce and broccoli!! How exciting! I didn't have to cook, and this meal made by Husband was delicious! More please.
I know it seems like I've been making a lot of pasta lately, but I do try to limit it to once a week or once every other week.
This week I needed an idea for tempeh. I hardly ever use the stuff, but it's so good! I found the recipe of Food.com, and the link is below. It was pretty easy to make and was delicious. Even Will scarfed it down. Earlier, as I was making this dish, he walked into the kitchen and looked skeptically at the soy bean chunks. "I don't think I like tempeh." He said. Well, too bad for him. It's what's for dinner. Tempeh or nothing.
Needless to say, the tempeh went over well. The broccoli with garlic was really good too.
