Meatless Monday – Quinoa Salad

I like being able to pull a meal together based on what I have in the fridge.  There’s something very satisfying about being able to pull something together at the last minute without having to run to the store.  It’s even better when the meal turns out to be exciting and delicious!

Meatless Monday – Potato Pancakes

Nothing says comfort food quite like what you grew up eating.  My mom used to make potato pancakes for us all the time growing up, and we’d love to top them with cottage cheese, HP or BBQ sauce, syrup, you name it!  If you’re looking for a truly savory spin on the traditional pancake then keep reading!

Meatless Monday – Gluten Free, Vegan Overnight Oats

I have heard of this wonderful thing called “overnight oatmeal” but I hadn’t tried it until just a little while ago.  Now I’m hooked!  I prefer to make it with buckwheat groats because I’m not really into the texture of oatmeal on it’s own, but you can substitute oats if you prefer.

Meatless Mondays – Wild Rice Yam Pancakes

The first time I tried to make this recipe I was new to vegan cooking so I tried to use whole flaxseeds instead of ground flaxseed. Needless to say, it didn’t work out. But after trying it again with the proper ingredients these are a savoury, protein rich pancake breakfast for the busy day ahead.

Meatless Monday – Gluten Free Waffles

There are a number of packages of gluten free waffle and pancake mixes available, but as the gluten free lifestyle continues to grow and develop it’s “fad” status, more and more heavily processed options are available to purchase for much more reasonable prices than before.  The sugar/carb content in some of these products is completely off the charts!  Not to mention all the preservatives and whatnot.  I am always looking for the healthier alterantive, but also without taking any more time.  With this recipe I think I’ve found the perfect balance between convenience without sacrificing taste.  I started out with a recipe from food.com, and it took a while, and I had to scrape out the disasters from my waffle pan many a time, but this recipe is fool proof!

Meatless Monday – Tropical “Meatballs”

I used to love this dish as a kid, mainly because I could drown the meatballs in sauce and rice and try to forget that I was actually eating ground beef.  But I’ve brought it back with a vegan twist!  Plus, it’s easy as pie to make, especially if you already have the “meatballs” pre-prepared and frozen.

Meatless Mondays: Quinoa Salad Rolls

These are so simple to make and store well for future lunches and snacks. Just make sure that the rice papers dry enough before you stack them, otherwise you’ll end up with a big gooey mess!
