*Every Wednesday I write a blog post with all of the vegetarian dinners we ate this week!*
Well we are done with our month long vegan challenge. Although it was a struggle to stay vegan when we were out to eat, I really enjoyed making a vegan dinner almost every night. I normally try to have at least one vegan meal every week, but now maybe it’ll be easy to incorporate a couple more. I do have to say though, that I may be the first person in the history of the world to gain weight on a vegan diet. WTF?
We made a delicious veggie chili that my mom sent. One of her friends won a chili cook off with the recipe! What I liked the most about it was the roasted sweet potatoes. Unfortunately I don’t have a link but I will try to type it up soon.
Thursday: Rice and Beans and Brussels Sprouts
I made this dish, but without the turkey. It was pretty good, but a little monotonous. The roasted brussels sprouts were delish!
We all LOVE this quinoa salad. I served it with corn tortillas and roasted sweet potatoes (seasoned with cayenne and roasted paprika).
Saturday: Potato Curry and Dosas
We made this delicious Indian dinner from a recipe from my friend Puja’s amazing blog! It was delish, but I need a little more practice on perfecting my dosas, which are basically Indian crepes.
Sunday: Quesadillas, Guac, and Chicken-less Buffalo Dip
For the superbowl, we had quesadillas with homemade corn tortillas (made by Ben) and what I call my “poor man’s guacamole” which is just avocados, lime juice, salt, and garlic powder. Though I should probably call it my lazy man’s guacamole, since the avocados aren’t cheap! I also made my friend Alison’s yummy buffalo chicken dip, without the chicken. She makes it a lot for parties and always makes a little chicken-free batch for me and it’s so good!!!
Monday: Sweet Potato Wraps
I made these again but this time I roasted the sweet potatoes instead of steaming and pureeing them and I liked it even better! I also made fresh flour tortillas, which is obviously better (you might be guessing how I gained weight on this vegan diet…)
Tuesday: Crock Pot Tomato Soup
This was really yummy but too rich. I think next time I would use half as much half and half. I also made yummy garlic bread to go with it.
