Asking what’s for dinner tonight is one of the most frequently said phrases when it comes to food. It can be quickly solved with the simple plant-based recipes found here.
Eating clean is part of having a healthy ageless body. The whole foods you eat power your brain and give you energy for your ageless lifestyle.
This week’s box had spring greens, onion, snow peas, tomato, beets, eggplant, parsley, cilantro, and radishes.
Watch the unboxing video.
I don’t eat cilantro or radishes, so those go to neighbors.
Both cilantro and parsley are great to put in smoothies to remove toxic metals from the body.
I love eggplant and after my last eggplants were wasted in an Asian recipe I didn’t care for, I still decided to try a recipe I had never made before.
So, What’s for Dinner Tonight?
Vegan Chickpea Curry with Eggplant from Ele Vegan.
It’s a filling recipe with lots of big flavors. I would recommend using 1 1/2 cups (or a whole can) of coconut milk. Mine didn’t end up having near the amount of sauce it needs, or what is pictured.
This recipe is fast and easy to make, you can have dinner on the table in 30 minutes.
I used swiss chard for the greens and brown rice because that was what I had. You can use any kind you want. I make a big pot of brown rice in my Instant Pot for the week so I always have some on hand in the fridge.
I did another curry dish with the snow peas. You may not think of those two things together, but I love this recipe and it’s my go-to recipe for snow peas each year.
My vegan version of this one-pot coconut curry shrimp recipe from Plating Pixels.
I use plain vegan yogurt rather than vanilla flavored. I substitute lightly steamed cauliflower and broccoli for the shrimp. You could use any veggie you like.
The fresh snow peas I get are thick, rather than the thin ones you find in the grocery store, so I cut them in 3rds and put them in right from the start with the onion. The thick-skinned ones take a longer time to cook.

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, a day after Christmas I lost my mother at the age of 69 to lung cancer. Since then, helping others to regain their health has become a driving force in my life.
