What can vegans even eat #1

Most common question: what can you even eat?

Contrary to belief vegans eat just about everything everyone else does, just in a different way. Now yes there’s junk food that is vegan but that’s not what I’m here to do! My plan is to show you out there that you don’t need to use crazy ingredients to make food that is healthy and tastes amazing without too much effort!

 

Okay so to start I am currently trying to shape up and cut down on my previously crazy portion sizes. So my favorite thing ever is smoothies! I would live on them but I’m not too sure how well that’d go.

Breakfast:

so for this I just added about half a handful of spinach, 1 banana, a kiwi, pineapple juice, handful of frozen exotic smoothie mix (If you’re near an Aldi, buy it, it’s amazing, just a bag of mango, papaya and pineapple) and some water! Cheap as choot and tasty as pie!

 

Lunch:

So I have an unnatural obsession with wraps, just everything in wraps, leftover dinner in a wrap. I probably shouldn’t because they’re quite high in salt, but I buy the half and half to try justify my obsession.

So i made scrambled tofu for lunch the day before and had leftovers so I threw it in a wrap with spinach, cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes and avocado.

just had hummus with veg and nuts on the side.

 

Dinner:

Dinner: my fav meal of the day!

Quorn the amazing producers make vegan type chicken pieces, and they are amazing!

So I just fried them up with some onions, added in kale, spinach, sweetcorn and stirred in some leftover salsa, and was tastaaayyyy. I just had some oven baked sweet potatoe chips!

 

And that was that! Easy as hell and still cheap enough to be under a tenner in total ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for reading xx

Vegan satay rice bowl

IMG_3105

So recently I tried tofu for the first time, admittedly I’m not sure if I dislike it or if I cooked it all kinds of wrong, but the rest of this dish taste so good I didn’t even mind! I thought I’d share this new satay saucy love affair of mine!

I actually made my sauce after watching way to many YouTube videos of how to make Satay peanut sauce. I have to say the easiest recipe to follow was the awesome Greg’s kitchen’s video! Although he did add fish sauce to his, we can just leave it out ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients:

-1/2 Lime’s juice ย ย  -1 onionย ย ย ย ย  -1 or 2 garlic clovesย ย ย ย ย ย  -1/2 cup of peanut butter

-teaspoon of brown sugarย ย  -1/2 teaspoon or less of chili flakes/ chili powder

-1 tablespoon of soy sauceย ย  -2 tablespoons of sesame oiย  -dairy free milk of choice

-Mushroomsย ย  -How ever many peppers your heart desiresย ย  -200g of unflavored firm tofu

-a handful of rice for each adult eating

Method:

Satay sauce:

>cook your rice how ever you find easiest and follow time written on the package.

>meanwhile add the oil, onion, garlic and chili to the frying pan and fry until onions are just soft but not burned.

>add your peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, stirring this until combined.

>stirring in milk until desired consistency is reached.

>I separately fried the tofu as I followed the instructions on the packet, So I just fried up some onion and the tofu in a pan with some garlic powder and smoked paprika, because I literately can’t eat anything without those two seasonings.

>I then added the peppers and the mushrooms to the sauce and let that cook for a further 5 mins.

>drain your rice, throw on your tofu and your veggie peanut satay sauce in a bowl and enjoy till the cows come home.

If you try this out and enjoy it or even put this on your to cook list let me know!

Thanks lovelies, xx
