Vegan cooking, some easy meals, some hard.

Vegan tacos are my daughter’s favorite. So simple! Sautéed mushrooms, onions, garlic, and some olive oil. Stuff that taco full of lettuce and tomato and then the sauteed parts and bam. Yum. I’m sure you could find tons of things to add to this but she is limited in what she can eat. I am just adding a picture screenshotted from my instagram. I am too tired to crop out all the extras so hey, you can follow me on instagram now because now you know my user name!!!!  

Vegan pizza takes more time! A LOT more time. I make the sauce by sautéing onions and garlic in olive oil, then adding crushed tomatoes and wine and himalyan sea salt basil and oregano(she can’t have pepper). 

The cheese..ughhh the cheese. Here is the cheese recipe:

2 cups of diced cooked (boiled) yellow potatoes

1 cup of cooked chopped finely carrots

1/2 cup of potato water

1/4 cup of nutritional yeast, plus 2 tbs  extra of the nutritional yeast

1/2tsp of Himalayan sea salt

1 tbs lemon juice

Strain the potatoes and carrots and put them in the blender with all of the other ingredients and blend blend blend. 

We buy our pizza crust from a deli that makes vegan/gluten free crust. I put the sauce on, then the cheese, then sliced mushrooms and tomoatoes topped with basil leaves and cook at 400 for 8 minutes. The prep time destroys my kitchen. It will take a good hour to clean his mess up when you are finished but well worth it.

Left over cheese used to make vegan mac-n- cheese. Looks like regular kraft right!!! You can also use the left over cheese heated and drizzled over a baked potato, add a cup of peas and you are halfway there. 

Sweet potato strips are another favorite. 

I cook 2 sweet potatoes and peel and mash. I add 1/2 cup of black beans cooked and strained. I add one cup of cooked brown rice. I add salt, finely diced onions. Mash them all together and form into strips. I cook them at 415 for 30 min flipping half way through. 

I have this week altered this to veggie burgers by adding mushrooms and corn. 

If you try them out, let me know how it goes! I am always interested in new vegan ideas or tips!
