crushed red pepper
BREAKFAST - STEEL CUT OATS WITH FRUIT
desired amount of steel cut oats
1 banana (sliced)
blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 tsp chia seeds
a bit of almond milk
maple syrup (optional)
Cook oats on the stove top according to package directions.
Pour into a bowl and top with desired toppings.
LUNCH - ON THE GO VEGAN WRAP
1/4 to a 1/2 of a ripe avocado (mashed)
5 fresh basil leaves (chopped very small)
1 garlic clove (crushed)
the juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tortilla of your choice
veggies I used:
a large amount of arugula
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkling of crushed red pepper
sprinkling of nutritional yeast
In a small bowl add the avocado, basil, garlic, lemon, and salt and pepper. Mash/mix until well combined and resembles a guacamole texture.
Warm tortilla if desired (I warmed mine for about 30 seconds on my gas stove burner). Spread avocado mixture on the tortilla. Then add cucumber, tomato, mushroom, and arugula. Sprinkle more pepper, crushed red pepper, nutritional yeast, and more salt if desired. Roll into a wrap and eat, or wrap in something to have on the go later.
DINNER - CORN CHOWDER
1 small sweet onion (chopped)
6 cloves garlic (chopped)
6-7 cups vegetable broth
2 cups frozen corn
1 large potato (peeled & chopped)
1 tsp thyme
1 tbl fresh parsley (chopped)
1/3 cup almond flour
1/3 cup water
salt & pepper to taste
In a large soup pot add onion and garlic and 2 cups vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer for 10 minutes until onions are translucent.
Add corn, potatoes, and 4 more cups of broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until potatoes are tender.
Transfer half of soup to a blender, and blend until smooth. Return to the pot.
Add the extra cup of broth if desired for your preferred consistency. Add parsley, thyme, and simmer 10 minutes.
During this time make the almond cream. Put the water and the almond flour in the blender and blend until smooth. Transfer the almond cream to the soup pot. Salt and pepper to taste, then turn off and cover until ready to serve.
