So, this week is Faculty Appreciation week. To appreciate us, the parents are nice enough to feed us breakfast and lunch all week (yay). Anyways, yesterday one of the parents brought in this huge (it was really big) berry bowl. So good.
My Vegan Fritta Space Ship
aka - my breakfast for the majority of the week. Tofu, broccoli, onion, nutritional yeast, and a variety of seasonings. It’s hecka decka good. One of the best parts of my Monday (and my monday was more monday-ish than usual) was eating some of this for breakfast with some whole grain toast. Mmmmm
Hodge Podge Lunch
Eggless Broccoli Onion Frittata w/ Long Grain Brown Basmati Rice and steamed Siracha Beets all topped with a homemade Tomato Basil Sauce.
And Miso Soup
Yes, it was a weird combo, but it was really yummy. Mmmmmm
Besides making the chocolate doughnuts I posted about earlier, I also made
Chocolate Zucchini Muffins and Granola Bars
Yep, sweets abound!
Ok - these may be the best things ever. So, I got the new VT in the mail and they have a recipe collection for Hemp hearts (Hemp, hemp, hooray….lol!!!!). Anyways, there’s a simple recipe for Maple-Nut clusters - so easy - pretty much just toss in a hot pan for a couple of minutes, let cool on parchment, and voila. My son *loves* these. I’ve told him they’re like healthy candy and he can’t get enough. Awesome!
So, I tweaked (a lot) the cornbread recipe in HH
Here’s the recipe for the bread pictured above:
1 c cornmeal
.5 c corn flour
.25 c whole wheat pastry flour
.25 c whole grain rye flour
1T baking powder
.5 t salt
1 c Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (Trader Joe’s) w/1 tsp lemon juice
.25 c butternut squash puree
.25 c maple syrup
Raw sugar for the top.
Mix the dry in one bowl, mix the wet in another bowl (make sure you mix the milk and juice ahead of time and let sit for a couple of minutes). Mix it all together - but not too much, if you beat your batter too much, you’re gonna get a brick. No brick! Anyways, put in a pie dish (or anything else you want) and put in a 400degree F oven for 20 min.
The end. Yum!
