End of Summer Salad

23 Sep

Yesterday really felt like the last day of summer, so I decided to make a nice colourful salad to say goodbye to the summer and greet the fall! This salad is great for a main, or you could make a smaller version an have it as a side. Happy fall everyone!

Ingredients:

(Makes 2 main course size salads)

1/2 bunch spinach, cut into bite size pieces

1/2 head lettuce, cut into bite size pieces

1 red pepper, cut into chunks

1 yellow pepper, sliced

1 stalk celery, sliced

1 tomato, cut into chunks

2 Tbsp raw pumpkin seeds

2 Tbsp raw sliced almonds

2 Tbsp flame raisins, or your favourite kind!

2 Tbsp balsamic dressing, see “Bean Burgers with Mango Salsa and Caesar Salad” for recipe

Put lettuce on plates, evenly place peppers, celery, and tomato on lettuce. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds, almonds, and raisins on top. Drizzle with salad dressing, and serve!

Tofu Scramble with Spinach & Sun-Ripened Tomatoes

5 Sep

One of my favourite vegan breakfasts, or dinners haha, has got to be tofu scramble! Pretty much all you need is tofu, and whatever vegetables you have in your fridge! I’ve made this for a lot of my friends who aren’t vegan and they have always loved it and wanted more! This recipe should serve 3-4 well, or two extraordinarily hungry people lol!

Ingredients:

1 package extra firm tofu

1 Tbs olive oil

1 small yellow onion, sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup sun-ripened tomatoes, chopped

1 bunch spinach, chopped

1 Tbs soya sauce

1/2 Ts turmeric

salt & pepper to taste

In skillet, sauté  onion, garlic and tomatoes in oil until onions are translucent.

Add spinach and cover with lid until spinach has cooked down.

Reduce heat, crumble in tofu, and mix throughly. Mix in soya sauce, turmeric, salt & pepper. Let cook on low for about 2 minutes.

Plate up and serve with your favourite side dish! Some ideas are toast, hash browns, home fries, steamed vegetables, or some fresh fruit.
