Vegan Food Happenings

Hey there. Sorry for the lack of posts. Work’s been, um, interesting. Sadly, it’s been zapping any extra energy I’ve had to cook/take pictures/blog. But I thought I’d share a few pictures of some dishes I’ve made the past week or so.

Maple-Almond Granola (from “Vegan Soul Kitchen”)

This recipe is super-easy to make and it makes a ton of granola. But it keeps for a month, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy it on your yogurt and berries.

French Lentil Soup (from “Veganomicon”)

My husband started a new job this week (yay!) that has regular hours and he has access to a microwave. I can’t tell you how much this is going to help with our lunch planning. This week, I made this French Lentil Soup recipe, along with cornbread, for our lunches. It’s very filling, very healthy and easy on the budget (much cheaper than buying canned soups).

Also, we received our Vitamix a few days ago and are already in love. We’ve made a few smoothies from the included recipe book, but I’m looking forward to trying it for a vodka sauce recipe tonight. If it turns out well, I’ll have a post up on that this weekend.

I hope you all are well!
