Junky Vegan

Oh! It feels so good to eat clean!

I have been a bit of a junky vegan lately. I've been vegan - but in a corn chip, Dr. Pepper, licorice kind of way. I blame it on the funeral and think it is a good blame. But I'm over that now and right back to Nutritarian Woman ( Ta Da!)!!!

What I ate yesterday:

  • Big old green smoothie
  • orange
  • Huge salad
  • leftover French Lentil Soup (I heart leftovers)
  • Banana
  • Hummus (lots) and cucumber
  • Apple
  • Quinoa Coconut Curry! (my own invention)
  • Pero

I was really hungry last night and not sure what I wanted. This is what I did (so yummy):
You can find this at the supermarket. My son, Gabe, told me about it. Good Stuff.

Robin's Super Simple Easy Quinoa Coconut Curry!

Spray pan with Pam. Saute 1 cup chopped onion and one chopped red pepper until tender. Add 1 cup light coconut milk (from a can), 1 1/2 teaspoon green curry paste, 1 cup peas, and 1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa and stir until peas are tender/sweet. Try not to eat it all at once.

Ike even liked it.

I made a variation of this tonight & it was fabulous.
I used the entire can of coconut milk, and because it's what I had on hand I used purple onion and red (not green) curry paste (only 1/4 tsp since it's very hot). Instead of adding the quinoa to the mixture, I did the following:

Put a handful of baby arugula on dinner plate spread it out and; Top that with about 1/2 cup thinly (1/4" thick)sliced crisp iceberg lettuce; Mound about a cup of cooked quinoa on top of lettuces; Spoon your "invention" on top of mound, spilling over onto lettuces & drizzling extra heated sauce over everything.
It makes a very attractive dish and provides interesting contrast of flavors, textures, and temperatures.
I will serve this the next time we have dinner guests!
