Just because you’re eating a vegan meal doesn’t mean it’s a light meal of just vegetables. Vegan meals can have a rich mouthfeel, be incredibly flavorful and filling. Here are a couple hearty healthy recipes for two.
This week’s organic vegetable delivery box had radishes, spring greens, swiss chard, snow peas, eggplant, carrots, butternut squash, cilantro, and sweet potatoes.
The dogs got the snow peas. I gave away the cilantro and radishes.
I decided I wanted some Indian food this week with the Swiss chard and butternut squash.
I substituted parsley for the cilantro because I can’t stand the taste of cilantro.
I used my whole bunch of swiss chard chopped into small pieces instead of spinach.
You’ll want to add the chard in step 2 with the sqaush because it won’t wilt after the heat is turned off like spinach will.
I made a couple changes to this recipe. I didn’t have any all spice, so I left it out.
I didn’t want to use a hot pepper so I switched it for a jalepeno.
This is a great tasting, quick and easy recipe.
Roasted Carrots and Sweet Potatoes
The carrots and little sweet potatoes were roasted and served with the eggplant.
I just chopped them into bite size chuncks. Tossed with olive oil, and Italian spice blend, salt, pepper. Bake at 425 about 20-25 minutes.
Health and nutrition are a big passion of mine because, without your health, all the success you can achieve is meaningless. In 1981 I started seriously studying health, nutrition, and the mind/body connection. I stopped eating meat in 1990 for health reasons and compassion for animals. In 1999 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2005, the day after Christmas, I lost my mother at the age of 69 to lung cancer. Since then, helping others to regain their health by making simple changes has become a driving force in my life.
Until next time, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post here or on Facebook.
