Breakfast: A banana date shake in a mason jar (thanks to The Shenandoah Vegan for the idea!!). I had been out all morning running errands so by the time I got home I just wanted something to hold me over until lunch.
I spent some time cooking some yummy dishes which I enjoyed for lunch and dinner!
Lunch: A delicious new stir fry recipe that I tried. It has some heat thanks to sriracha sauce and has shiitake mushrooms, tofu and bok choy. I love bok choy and this dish was perfect with the pile of brown rice hidden under the veggies! I only used 1 tbsp of canola oil to cook all of the veggies and dry fried the tofu so it wasn't super oily, which I love. Check out the recipe here.
Snack: A delicious, sweet nectarine and a handful of raw cashews.
Dinner: As I was whipping up these chickpea croquettes my friend called and we made plans to do dinner at her house then enjoy the gorgeous summer night. I told her I'd bring some of the croquettes and when I got there she whipped up this gorgeous summer ragout with onion, zucchini, baby broccoli, fresh corn and tomato puree. It was an amazing, bright dish. The croquettes had a nice flavor but they were dry...probably because of the chickpea flour with only a little bit of liquid. Next time I'll probably add a little more oil or something but we added a dollop of hummus making them a trifecta of chickpea awesomeness and it really helped!
Hope you all have a happy and safe 4th and I'll be back later to post todays nomminess!
