As Brett and I prepare to head to America for 6 months (we leave in 1 week!), I’ve been spending lots of time with my Chinese friends and eating all the Chinese food. I’ve said this before: the Chinese food in our city is absolutely delicious, but it never makes me feel that great afterwards. So in between Chinese feasts, I’ve been trying to eat as many meals at home. Some days are less busy and I can enjoy all of my meals at home, which helps to keep me feeling fairly normal.
Today’s meals were all eaten at home and I hope this post gives you some meal inspiration for your week!
I had a baked sweet potato (cold) topped with banana slices, peanut butter, cacao nibs, raisins and cinnamon. It was delicious, but a little too much food for my squished pregnancy stomach. Next time I’ll eat this meal in two separate sittings!
I’m obsessed with tofu these days and I love including it in rice bowls with other veggies and fun sauces. To cook the tofu I cut it into cubes, sprinkled it with tamari (or soy sauce) and baked it in the oven until firm and browned. The time and temperature is always different, but I would say it’s usually at 375/400 degrees for about 30 minutes, flipping the tofu halfway through the baking process.
I enjoyed the tofu over rice with sauteed Chayote greens, steamed carrots, hummus and spices/sesame seeds.
Dinner was a treat because I took the time to make some vegan mozzarella to put on my favorite vegan whole wheat pizza dough. Making the vegan cheese is actually quite an easy process, but the thought always makes me put it off. For the vegan mozzarella I used this amazing recipe! It’s made with cashews and tastes so gooey, cheesy and salty. I love it!
I made two pizzas since my friends were coming over. One base was marinara sauce and the other was BBQ sauce. I also had my favorite Vegan Caesar Salad on the side.
For dessert I made my current favorite drink: Homemade Cashew Milk Hot Chocolate. I plan to make a recipe post for it because it’s that good!
