I had been craving pancakes for a few days, and when I saw a tweet about making pancakes I knew what I had to do – pancakes for dinner! I looked around the internet for recipes and found a couple that I combined to create these. They are surprisingly fluffy for being 100% whole wheat.
This really hit the spot tonight. Hashbrowns are great by themselves, but with the salsa the taste has more depth. It is spicy and savory with crisp hashbrowns and small pieces of left over vegan tenders. Just before it finishes cooking on the griddle, add hot salsa. Then cook for a few more minutes until crispy again. My wife couldn’t believe I only added salsa. She thought for sure I added lots of spices. Sometimes simple is the best solution. I love how the house smells like salsa and hashbrowns now. Tasty!
I made this breakfast for my wife this morning. She is so spoiled! I started with some hashbrowns on the skillet. After the hashbrowns cooked, I drained a can of black beans and mixed in some salsa. I cooked those on the same skillet until the liquid was gone. Served with some watermelon and asian pear with a glass of fresh orange juice to wash it down. Tasty!
This is my entry for the September The Recipe Redux. The theme this month is "Dressing for Success" - condiments, spreads, and salad dressings. The goal is to make a regular recipe more healthy by incorporating more whole foods, less saturated fat, etc.
I originally saw this bread via a tweet from VeganPatriot talking about a recipe on happyherbivore. VeganPatriot had modified it to work in his bread machine. It sounded really delicious. I went straight to the store and bought some rosemary, and set about making it myself.
The temperature has come down and the farmer’s markets are bursting with tasty veggies. A perfect time to roast with the oven. This recipe takes a few minutes of prep and a while to bake, but while baking the whole house will smell great!
This smoothie is tasty and refreshing. The four berries compliment each other nicely and the yogurt adds a subtle creaminess. The carrots and flaxseed are hidden by the other flavors; I added them for extra nutrition.
When thinking of summer and fruit, a tasty watermelon comes to mind dripping with juice. They usually come in red as you are probably imaging right now, but did you know they also come in yellow and white? I’ve never seen white, that would be neat!
We used to buy Gardein crispy tenders at Costco before they quit carrying them. The local co-op still has them though. We like them as a quick dinner when we were feeling lazy and don’t want to cook. They bake in the oven in about twenty minutes and come out nice and crispy. 100% vegan. They are made from soy and grains like quinoa, amaranth, and kamut.
My wife loves to make this vegan soup or variations of it. It is a quick way to get something hot and tasty. This particular soup was very fragrant and filled the house with the delicious chipotle smell.
This recipe is quick, easy, and healthy; it only takes about 10 minutes. Did I mention it was tasty? We never have any leftovers. My wife says it is “hearty and hits the spot.” I agree. It goes well with some fresh bread. I used the vita-mix to make this, but you could also make it with a regular blender and the stove.
