I love to cook (delicious, nutritious, plant-based, cruelty free, vegan, whole, fresh, organic, :) food for my family!
For those of you who have asked for recipes, have asked "what do you eat?", think this is too difficult, wonder if it could possibly taste good or worry about getting all the nutrients your body needs. I would like to help! As part of our effort to share what we do here,
occasionally while I am cooking,
I will share a family favorite with you.
Lunch today was:
Minestrone Soup with Sourdough Bread and Apple Juice
Snickerdoodles and Chai Latte (OMG!)
Our Family Favorite
From The Family Vegan Cookbook
Chef Brian P. McCarthy
3 ribs celery, diced
1/2 onion, diced
3 T light olive oil (I substitute water)
4 C vegetable broth
1/2 C uncooked elbow pasta
1/2 bunch spinach, chopped
1 - 15oz can diced tomatoes
1 - 15oz can kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 1/2 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic (optional) *YES GARLIC
salt to taste
In a large pot, saute the carrots, celery, onion and garlic in oil (or water) until tender. Add broth, spinach, pasta, tomatoes, kidney beans, basil and oregano. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to low and cover. Let simmer for 15 minutes or until pasta is cooked, stirring occasionally. Add salt to taste.
I always add the fresh squeezed garlic and often use frozen tomatoes from the garden. Quick, easy and delicious!

Oh She Glows

Be sure to check out her other recipes! We use them and love them all the time! I would highly recommend the cookbook!
simply brew a cup of chai, add a little vanilla almond milk and a touch of maple syrup for sweetness if desired and enjoy!
I am happy to help!
