Vegan Eggplant Rollatini

October 24, 2009

The vegan eggplant rollatini is by far my favorite recipe. It is so good, and the cashew ricotta is so creamy it really makes the dish! Also, the key to cooking this eggplant healthily is baking it so you don’t have to use tons of oil to make it soft. It’s a little work so I usually don’t do it on a weeknight, but if I do make it I…

Veggie Chili

October 21, 2009

Veggie Chili is a good stand by to make as the days get chillier. We usually put it over a bed of spinach or some other greens. Sometimes it is hard to get the kids to eat chili so I sometimes make a quesadilla or tacos out of it for them.

Pumpkin Soup

October 21, 2009

Ev begged me for some pumpkin soup the other day. We had just came back from pumpkin picking so I just used one of the medium sized pumpkins we got. I cut up the pumpkin, cubed it and cut the skin off. I then boiled it with one onion in and a box of veggie broth until soft. I added some pepper, cumin and cinnamon and then blended it all…

Pizza, pizza, pizza!

October 8, 2009

Anthony loves pizza! Here we made our own on a whole wheat tortilla, piled on the veggies and sprinkled a little Daiya vegan cheese. The more veggies the better! Even if we order a pie, we try to get it on a whole wheat crust with tons of veggies and ask for no cheese. We also eat a lot of salad with it too, so we don’t eat too much…

Fruit & nuts for breakfast??

October 1, 2009

I eat fruit and nuts for breakfast every day during the week and I switch it up a little on the weekends. Today I’m having strawberries, pineapple, a banana, and some almonds. I usually buy fruit from the cafeteria at work, which gets a little pricey, but they almost always have strawberries, and sometimes blueberries, and on those days I know it’s worth it. I fill one of those containers,…

Pumpkin and Butternut Squash Soup

September 29, 2009

We got a butternut squash and cooking pumpkin from our farm pickup this week so I decided to make soup out of it. I peeled and cubed both the pumpkin and the squash. I then cut two onions and cooked them in a large pot with about a half an inch of water. We usually don’t use any oil and cook onions and things in water instead. Once the onions…

Veggie sandwich with chili

September 24, 2009

This sandwich is a quick, easy healthy choice. It’s on a pita with a layer of hummus, crumbled up Sunshine veggie burger, avocado, fresh spinach and salsa. The Sunshine burgers are the best because they are made from rice, seeds and veggies and have no soy fillers. I get them at the Basil Bandwagon in Flemington. On the side is some leftover chili I found in the fridge. This is…
