Weekly Giveaway: Easy Vegan by Vatcharin Bhumichitr! Jessimaka33 is the winner!
I've gotten through this entire newsletter without making a joke about how "quick and easy" vegans are. Well, I ALMOST got through the newsletter without making that joke. A valiant effort! Sort of! If there was ever a giveaway to go with the "quick and easy" theme, it would be Easy Vegan by Vatcharin Bhumichitr (http://www.amazon.com/Easy-Vegan-Simple-Recipes-Healthy/dp/1845979591). Easy Vegan. Hehe. Okay, I'll stop acting like I'm 12 years old long enough to tell you that this book is completely awesome. It's filled to the brim with recipes like Black Rice Salad with Chile Greens, Creamy Vegetable and Cashew Nut Curry, and Cherry Hazelnut Oat Cookies. Being easy never felt so good! Okay, I'll stop.
For a chance to win a copy, let me know what your favorite quick and easy meal is!
Giveaway ends on Tuesday, September 14th at midnight, PST! Winner will be chosen at random!
chickpea curry - easiest meal ever!
MY Daily salad: Romaine lettuce, onion, cucumber, green or red pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, topped with salsa and my homemade dressing.....Healthy!!!!
tofu scramble! : )
Soba noodles, veggies, and hummus mixed in a bowl and eaten with chop sticks. :)
...tofu quiche--I've gotten so quick at preparing it that it's in the oven in 15 minutes, and ready to eat in about 35 minutes. Okay maybe not the quickest recipe ever, but very delicious, and one of my fave recipes on VegWeb.com. Can't wait to read Easy Vegan!
veggie pizza with soy cheese and whole wheat crust =)
Tostadas, pinto or black beans topped with a mountain of shredded lettuce, tomatoes, avocado and a chili-lime salsa
Easiest lunch ever: 1 can black eyed peas, 1 small can corn, 1 red pepper chopped, 1 huge handful of cilantro(chopped), Mix it all together and add a touch of olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste. Salt & Pepper also to taste. YUM. Some sliced green onions and/or chopped red onions don't hurt either.
vegan slow-cooker chili.
I love blueberry banana smoothies after a hike.
I don't remember the name exactly but it's something like Quinoa, Corn and Scallions from a cookbook by Nava Atlas.
My favorite quick and easy meal is the kale chickpea mash. ;)b
grilled cheese w/ daiya or chick pea curry
Garbanzo bean tacos. Yum!
My favorite easy meal is a tofu stir-fry with vegetables from our garden! Delish! ;)b
I love to roll leftover beans and rice, stir fry veg or whatever I have in a corn tortilla. Top it with salad, salsa, guacamole and I am good to go!
Quick still-saute (let it sit) some tofu in a bit of coconut oil w/curry...smother it with cut tomatoes,garlic & zuke -- let it sizzle - the top cooks down and the tofu bottom has a crust. Layer it over some polenta (vegan - with added basil - mmm) -- homemade or store bought.
Grilled avocado sandwiches or burritos (but it is only quick and easy when the guac and refried beans were made ahead of time).
