Who's doing meatless Monday? Winner dinner. Super easy. Super comforting. Super packed with nutrients. Super quick. I don't even know what to name it. How to: 1. 1 clove garlic, crushed + 1 clove shallot, crushed + 1/5 onion, cut to rough chunks throw them into boiling water (2 cups) together with 1 vegetable stock cube 2. Add in around 1/3 cup or 2 tbsp of quinoa 3. Dump in 1 cup cubed sweet potato 4. Add diced mushroom and a handful of peas 5. Just leave it for around 10 minutes or so. Then add greens (I used butterhead lettuce but I think spinach works better. Unfortunately I have no spinach on hand and have butterhead to finish so yeah... LOL) 6. Cook for another 5 minutes and you are done!
Late (ugly) breakfast: overnight apple-pie oats - 1/2 cup rolled oats - 1 tsp chia seeds - 1 cup unsweetened soy milk - chopped apples - dustings of cinnamon Leave overnight in the fridge It is Friday the 13th! Nevertheless I still believe we'll be in good health
Heads up this one is not vegan but probably you can use the sauce for something else. Finally cook something proper for dinner after a long time: Boneless, skinless chicken breast with apple mushroom sauce with mashed sweet potato and greens on the side 1. For the chicken: season chicken breast with salt and peper. Bake in preheated oven at 215°C for 15 minutes (make sure the chicken is cooked thoroughly) 2. Sauce: slice onion, dice apple and champignon mushroom. Saute the ingredients (I used a splash of water to prevent sticking instead of oil). Season with cinnamon and I add few splashes of unsweetened soy milk. Feel free to season them the way you like it (You can even go fancy and use things like red wine or sherry once they caramelize) 3. Mashed sweet potato: boil / steam / bake cubed sweet potato (I boiled them) until tender and mash. Add a pinch of cinnamon and a splash of unsweetened almond milk 4. Greens: use whatever you like but I use butterhead lettuce dressed with balsamic vinegar + mustard

I AM BACK! After going away for a long, long time and lost myself a little in the middle of it, I am back. Here's an easy dish: - chop up 2 garlic cloves, 1 shallot, and a little bit of basil. Sautee until fragrant - dump in 1/3 cup of quinoa and stir fry until heated. Pour in 2/3 cup of water, cover, and let cook until water is absorbed - dump in cubed 1 small sweet potato and 3 huge champignon mushrooms, salt, pepper. Add a little bit of water to prevent sticking - cover and let cook, stir occasionally until is cooked - Done and done! That is a little bit of fruits on the side
Now we have a surprising news in USA. Although I'm not a US citizen myself, it still astounds me in a way. Not going to say about preference but I just hope those who have rights to vote have used their rights wisely and actually voted. Pictured is my lunchbox today: veggie paella + oat-crusted tofu + spinach & corn + sauteed green bean
