Starting off January with an old-trusty favourite, pie! I think it was raspberry pie to lift our spirits towards summer on a dreary winter day!
Another healthy dinner, "Eat to Live" style. Notice how half the plate is teaming with a leafy green salad. I have taken to using only home made dressings on my salads, after being spoiled by Nicola when I take my yoga students on retreat at Harmony Dawn Retreat Center. My favourite dressing is the tahini dressing from Dreena's Vive le Vegan cookbook. Served with the salad was a quinoa and chickpea pilaf. Blogger won't let me put the image up right now, so I will try to post it later!
Next is a mellow mushroom and brown rice soup, which was honestly a bit of a bore. But, the muffins were outstanding! They were packed with protein, made with quinoa and almond flour. I got the recipe from Veganomicon. I will definitely be making these again. They are not much to look at, but they sure tasted good.
