Wow! I was so excited about this Happy Herbivore recipe. The mushroom stroganoff sauce is really, really fantastic. I LOVED it. We ate it with tri-colored pasta from Trader Joes and it was perfect for a warm comfort meal. This would be great during the holidays as a side dish as well.
So, the recipe from Happy Herbivore called for lentils as the main ingredient…but my husband doesn’t really enjoy them. So, I used Trader Joe’s meatless ground and substituted it in the recipe. It was seriously satisfying, another awesome meal. Ruben had his on top of toasted sourdough bread.
I had mine as a sloppy burrito, I added spinach and tomatoes, but you can not see it in the picture, so you’ll just have to imagine it…
This recipe asked us to grill our sweet potato. Well, we don’t have a grill, so we used our panini press. It turned out just perfect. The salad contained corn, avocado, beans, bell pepper, green onion and I added some spices too. It was really a treat, especially on a hot evening. This will be a favorite for sure.
So the other morning I just really wanted something that touched all the flavors. I wanted sweet, savory, salty…well, I guess I didn’t want tart. I’m not a huge fan of tart like my husband who could eat sour patch kids all day long.
In any case, I went rummaging through the kitchen and came up with a fabulous and easy breakfast. All you need is one sweet potato and some sesame garlic tempeh (from Tofurkey). I microwaved the potato and cooked the tempeh in my panini press. After a few smashes of the taters and crumbles of the tempeh, it was like a scrumptious sweet & savory hash. I highly recommend it.
Saute some mushrooms, add a little lettuce, tomato and onion and voila! A yummy dinner…easy enough, although I prefer mine deconstructed, as with most of my food.
Happy Herbivore Meal Plans
Ok, this was delicious…it is going into the arsenal of recipes to use repeatedly. We had it the other day, but I ate it before taking a photo. So, I remembered to snap one before scarffing it down at work. Happy Herbivore actually has the recipe on her website here: Eggless Salad Recipe
Nom nom Om,
So, last night was supposed to be a Grilled Corn & Quinoa Salad, which actually ended up being “canned corn thrown in a pan with BBQ flavoring, green onion and grape tomatoes, mixed with quinoa and cilantro” we also added some avocado which gave it a little flair, but I really think next time we’ll try to find a grill to do the recipe as it suggests…because what was created was a little boring. Which I’m not a fan of…OH WELL!
On another note, I found a really cute avocado.
