Salmon Kale With Maple Glazed Beets

salmon beets

 

Most who strive for a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle inevitably cook for, or entertain friends or family who don’t follow that diet.  I don’t cook meat, but found these awesome tasting gluten free salmon patties at Costco, and since then, no other measures up.  I always make a salad with the salmon, and add a variety of ingredients to up the nutritional value.  This day, I added kale, leeks, pine nuts and these amazing glazed beets.  No other dressing was even necessary.

Oatmeal Berry Breakfast Bowl

Oatmeal Bowl

I whipped this breakfast bowl up in about 10 minutes.  By the time I got finished with the photos however, it was all cold.  I popped it into the toaster oven, and….the chocolate melted!  I have never combined oatmeal, berries and chocolate, but you must try adding just a few nibs.  With the protein, fiber, antioxidants and vitamins that the other ingredients bring to the table, there is nothing wrong with a little sweet chocolate deliciousness.

Acai-Tini

I frequently stalk the local Goodwill store and thrift shops for things to reuse and repurpose, including glasses or dishes for my food and drink creations.  I found this set of glasses at Goodwill, and had to make a healthy, alcohol free, drink to highlight their beauty.

Chipotle Cashew Dip

Not everyone in my family is on board with the plant based, gluten free, healthy diet.  Accordingly, when we make food, we often have to make it healthy without sacrificing taste.  This Chipotle Cashew Dip is the best!  Recently, I had an informal get together with friends, and I made this dip.  No one knew that it was vegan, gluten free and dairy free–all  they knew was that they kept coming back for that tangy spicy flavor.  The ultimate compliment?  Asking for the recipe.  This is a quick dish to make.  Serve with tortilla chips or raw vegetables.
