Hi friends! Welcome to this edition of recent vegan eats, December/holiday style! I have been oddly busy since getting home for the holidays. Like, from the day I got home I’ve had days packed with appointments, family stuff, errands, etc etc. I’ve still barely had time to just sit down and rest! I am hoping to catch up on chill time, blogging, and some work this weekend. I feel so out of my routine it’s making me crazy!
Anyways, on to the recent vegan eats! If you’re new around here, in these “recent vegan eats posts,” I simply share some phone pics of random foods that I’ve eaten recently. These posts are not meant to depict what an ideal diet looks like, but rather, they are meant to just give you a glimpse of cheap easy vegan eats, restaurant highlights, and new vegan product reviews. Enjoy!
Chocolate Tofu Pudding
Two nights in a row before I left town to go home for winter break, I made full-brick servings of my chocolate tofu pudding. Basically, I whirled silken tofu with a hefty amount of coco powder and a tiny drizzle of syrup and a tablespoon or so of peanut butter. I topped it with coconut whipped cream from Trader Joe’s. So good.
Amba Mango Sauce Tofu + Bowls
Last Sunday I whipped up a quick, wholesome dinner for my mom and I. I had been wanting to try the Amba Mango Sauce from Trader Joe’s for a while, so I bought some a weekish ago and put it to work! I quickly marinated some firm tofu with the sauce, and baked it for 25ish minutes at 425 degrees.
I also steamed some cauliflower and broccoli, and cooked up some veggie rice. I then assembled everything in a bowl and topped it off with more Amba Mango sauce, Sriracha and some cilantro.
It was a tasty quick meal! The Amba mango sauce was pretty good. I think it’d be even better with a hit of lime juice for some aded brightness. Next time!
Bran Muffins and Cereal
I am so into bran stuff lately it hurts. In a good way. Pictured here is a random vegan bran muffin. But I’ve also been VERY into bran flake cereal. I get the Millville Bran Flakes from Aldi and they are scrumptious with chilly almond milk for a night time snack.
Beans and Barley Blueberry Pancakes
The best vegan pancakes ever! Yum.…
