It’s been 3 full weeks since I went vegan – after this week it will be a month!
It’s flown by but I also feel like I’ve been a vegan forever. In these weeks I’ve trawled and traipsed all over the internet to find some go-to meals to cook now I can’t be lazy and eat ready-meals every now and then!
Naturally I have a Pinterest board for all the food I’ve been coveting. I have a Pinterest board for every aspect of my life, it seems…
These are the things I’ve actually cooked and can confirm are DELISH!
The MLT; Mushroom, lettuce, tomato. It’s the veggie BLT and it’s delicious! I actually managed to randomly find the exact hickory sauce in the pictures and I can honestly say this is going to be a regular treat!
I tweaked this one a little, to be fair. I added chilli’s, a little olive oil and balsamic and YUM. Covered in pepper, like all my pasta, I’m in love. I always use avocado but never thought to put it on pasta!
Black pepper tofu
This is the most cookie-thing I’ve made recently because I have never really cooked with tofu. I actually picked the wrong kind [silk rather than the normal stuff] so it was more like lumpy sauce but the sauce itself is amazing. I’m sure once I understand the tofu beast I’m thinking I’ll be using it a bit more!
Sweet Potato and Mushroom Curry
Another recipe I’ve kind of tweaked; this is a sweet potato curry but I added mushrooms to mine. It’s as easy as getting a decent curry paste and finding a nice low fat coconut milk. I made this and on the first taste I decided it was my most favourite curry ever. Not even kidding. I plan on experimenting because I always have the same kind of curry – I’m going to try to be adventurous!
As a foodie and a wannabe stay home chef being vegan has actually been a blessing rather than a hurdle. Hopefully it will remain that way, too. With eating a plant based diet I’m actually learning more about nutrition so woohoo! I already feel healthier… I guess time will tell as to whether I look healthier!
Do be a dear and tell me about your favourite recipes if you’re vegan!
