Coconut chocolate chip cookie dough oatmeal
This beautiful creation consisted of:
1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
2/3 cups water
Splash of almond milk
Unsweetened coconut flakes sprinkled on top
Dollop of Justin's hazelnut butter
It was especially good once the hazelnut butter was all melted and swirled in
Yesterday I decided to try something new and experiment with cooking seitan. It's one of my favorite things to eat while I'm out, but I've never actually tried to cook with it.
I was really nervous
I'm so glad I decided to try it, because it was delicious!
Bok choy, shitake mushrooms, and seitan simmered in vegetable broth with fresh ginger
Last night I had a totally CCK inspired dinner, and it was SO good and also so much fun to cook!
That stuffing was so good, I could eat it for every single meal and never get tired of it. In fact, I think I'm going to cook up a double batch in a few days and eat it throughout the week!
For dinner tonight, I decided to make some roasted squash. Now, I am a vegan for purely ethical reasons and I know that the choices I make help prevent unnecessary cruelty and slaughter of animals, but I couldn't help but feel guilty chopping up the beautiful butternut squash that has been gracing my kitchen this past week.
May he rest in peace. :(
But, let me tell you, he was delicious.
Roasted to perfection!
I enjoyed my squash with quinoa, prepared with just about every leftover vegetable in my fridge, half a can of diced tomatoes, and an obscene amount of nutritional yeast.
I am also currently addicted to chocolate covered cacao nibs! They're a chocolate explosion!
Happy WIAW, everyone!
