Dinner - sun-dried tomato and basil pesto Puy lentils with spinach and grilled mushrooms, red bell pepper and cherry tomatoes brushed with a sweet and spicy tomato sauce. :)
Dinner - spicy grilled tofu and mushrooms with cherry tomatoes, edamame, spinach, a side serving of broccoli and a peanut/orange sauce.
For the tofu I pressed a third of a block, chopped it in to 5 slices the put some cornstarch, cumin, ground coriander, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper on a plate, mixed it up and rolled each piece of tofu in the mix. Then I just sprayed the griddle pan a few times with a lil’ bit of oil and grilled away!
The dressing is simply a tsp of peanut butter, pinch of salt and some orange juice (which I microwaved for 20 seconds - they heat helps everything emulsify) and bam! Awesome dressing. :D
A whole red bell pepper, cucumber sticks and a few tbsps of natural hummus. :)
Lunch - lettuce, tomato, carrot, avocado, baked potato, cashew and almond salad with a tahini/lime/orange dressing, paprika and cumin.
Pumpkin seed and cranberry bread with red pepper hummus, lettuce, dried cranberries, apple slices and organic peanut butter.
Roasted beetroot and aubergine salad with bulgur wheat, cherry tomatoes and local salad leaves, served with a pesto olive oil dressing.
I think this was probably my favourite meal we had out! I love a good salad. :3
Lunch - curried sweet potato and lentil soup with pumpkin seeds and cranberry, pumpkin seed and orange spelt bread.
It has started to get cold again and we had the biggest sweet potato I have ever seen to use up - and thus this soup was born! Recipe is here. :)
Lunch - small wheat tortillas with sundried tomato hummus, cucumber, iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red bell pepper, avocado and paprika with cherries.
Lunch - wholemeal toasted English muffin with avocado, s&p and paprika, spinach, cherries, Mediterranean vegetable couscous and pesto/pine nut pasta salad. :)
I don’t think avocado on toast quite beats hummus on toast, but it’s really not so bad! I want to love avocados so much, I’m trying to wean myself on to them, haha. All dat healthy fats, mm gurl.
Lunch - fresh multigrain bread with hummus, cucumber and paprika, mixed salad leaves, baby plum tomatoes, cherries, red bell pepper, Mediterranean vegetable couscous and tomato pasta salad.
(Afterwards I had a spelt cracker with some pb and a few dried strawberries. Oh! And my snack was a scoop of homemade coconut milk ice-cream. :) )
I’m totally killin’ it.
Mixed salad leaves, plum cherry tomatoes, cucumber, raspberries and tuna, with a tahini/pomegranate molasses/almond milk creamy dressing.
Edamame and mixed bean salad, sweet chilli noodles, tomato pasta salad, cherry plum tomatoes, iceburg lettuce, balsamic, s&p, cucumber (hidden beneath the lettuce), cherries and unpictured tiger bread.
It’s been bbq weather recently so we’ve been having lots of salads/fresh breads etc. for lunches and dinners rather than hearty, warm meals. England (especially down south) has been reaching the same temperatures as LA and this weather is set to continue! Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside…
Lunch - 2 egg omelette, made with pesto, sweet chilli and coconut oil, halved baby plum tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, spinach and paprika.
Soy/lemon/ginger/honey salmon and baby courgettes, sautéed in coconut oil, with diced red bell pepper, plum tomatoes, pecans and mixed salad leaves.
Broccoli quiche with buttery new potatoes, pesto pasta salad, orange and carrot salad and creamy sweetcorn and pepper salad.
I went out to lunch today with one of my oldest friends (I can’t believe I’ve known you 12 years, Elise!) to a lovely delicatessen called Peppers. They have separate vegetarian/vegan and gluten free menus too if you so require them, which is always nice, as I know having a ‘restrictive’ diet can feel like you’re being a pest - this way your options are already laid out in front of you, woo hoo! :D
