A couple more super quick plant-based meal ideas because, for some reason I can’t quite figure out, I find myself super-busy and strapped for time, even though I’m currently unemployed.. scratching my head.
First up is yet another inspiration from the Plant-Based Dietitian: A take on her Fiesta Fantastica, only turned into tostadas by placed between two tortillas and topped with salsa and vegan cheese. My partner came up with the filling idea: Just sauté some chopped onion, red and yellow peppers, add some veggie ground round and canned kidney beans and a little chili powder and a few tablespoons of water just to make it a bit saucy.
Place between two soft tortillas, top with salsa and vegan cheese. I just melted it all in the microwave (when I say fast, I mean fast 😉 ) Served with a mixed salad.
Next up is just a little stir fry I whipped up for a lunch the other day. I started with chopped asparagus, red peppers and green onions (because that’s what I had on hand) in a little canola oil and added a package of Commensal Thai flavoured seitan. Tossed it all with rice noodles that took 3 minutes to prepare. Sooo easy.
I’m off to the Expo Manger Santé et Vivre Vert (Eating Well and Green Living)… I’m excited!!
