Braised Radishes

Braised Radishes!

Week 4 of my local CSA share … radishes, asparagus, green garlic, red leaf, green leaf, Japanese radishes and local cornmeal!!!

I’m loving the fun, versatility and creativity needed to make meals from my share.

 

Plant Based Nutrition Recommendations:

  • Learn how to braise and the possibilities are endless.
  • Add apples to almost any braised veggie combo to add crunch and sweetness.
  • You don’t need several veggies–you can braise JUST radishes or asparagus–life and cooking should be simple.

Thai Vegan Lentil Burgers

Sweet Potato Lentil Burgers

IMG_4268

Do these look amazing or what?  My vegan lentil burgers are super yummy, insanely simple and good for you!  And they don’t taste like dirt.  None of my cooking tastes like dirt.  People ask me that all the time.  I don’t get it.  FYI:  dirt will taste like dirt and if you are at the beach and drop your food in the sand . . . it will taste like sand.

The Recipe

Ingredients:

  • lentils
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • onions
  • peppers
  • breadcrumbs
  • limes
  • lime zest
  • Thai Sweet Red Chili Sauce
  • vegetable broth

 

Directions:

  1. Peel, cube and roast the sweet potatoes at 425 degrees for 25 minutes.
  2. Make the lentils.  Add 1 cup lentils and 2 cups water or veg broth.  Bring to a boil, turn the heat down to a simmer for 20ish minutes until they are cooked firm.  In this recipe if you cook them a tad too much and they are mushy, it won’t matter.
  3. In a skillet type of pan cook the onions, peppers several minutes on a medium heat.  The idea is to wake up the flavor but not burn them.   Add lime juice and lime zest to the pan.
  4. I added Thai Sweet Chili Sauce for some sweet heat.
  5. Let this mixture cool.  Add enough breadcrumbs bind the lentil mix–you should be able to form them into patties like hamburgers.

  • These lentil burgers can be made ahead and frozen.
  • Use left over sweet potatoes in soups, salads and smoothies.
  • Add black beans instead of lentils.
  • Make into “meat balls” for an Italian Dinner.
  • Buy the lentils precooked.
  • Buy the sweet potatoes pre cut.
  • Hell, you can even buy the onions and peppers pre cut–there is no reason why you can’t eat healthy!!!

Vegan Taco Night!

Vegan Taco Night

We have had taco night once a week since . . . a long time.  Actually it started as a “mexican night” and we would have quesadilla, tortilla soup, this awesome chilequeleas dinner–so yummy.  When I lived in Texas for two years our local Whole Foods had cooking classes and demonstrations a few times a month and I rarely missed one.  I learned how to make authentic regional food–it was way too cool and so yummy.  More often than not it was just a few of us in the class so I could ask lots and lots of questions.  It was like having my own private cooking instructor.

As the kids grew, so did their desire to try new things–taco night is the perfect way to try new things.  Sprinkle in the new with the familiar.

 Plant Based Nutrition Recommendations

  • make fun fresh salsas out of apples, pineapple, heirloom tomatoes, or jicama
  • try a taco salad for lunch–and the heaviest ingredients on the bottom and the lettuce on tip
  • play around with different faux meats OR just use a variety of beans
  • get the kids involved in cutting, mixing, making the dinner
  • have a build your own taco bar
  • use the leftovers to make enchiladas (freezable meal)
