The Vegg

image

Yesterday I got my order from Vegan Cuts for The Vegg combo pack in! I’ve been pretty curious and heard some good things,  so I’ve been pretty excited to try it out.
As soon as I heard it was in, I went and picked up some tofu,  asparagus,  baby portobello mushrooms, and fresh baby spinach.
I had started off to make an omelet, but sadly it wasn’t totally successful.  The results were super delicious though! Eggy, veggie goodness that would lend itself so nicely to a rice dish.  I just wanted a light breakfast so I scrambled it all up and enjoyed it with toast and avocado.
I can’t wait to get more familiar with the Vegg! I recommend trying it out, one dish down that wasn’t even how I intended and it was delicious!

Sweet Potatoes and Spinach

image

Another nice and simple recipe for when you don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen. The sweet potatoes take the most time here but that’s because of the cooking time, not active time.

Sweet Potatoes
Preheat oven to 400 °
Dice 1 sweet potato
Place in a casserole dish and toss with 1 tbsp olive oil. 
Top with a few pinches of freshly ground black pepper, pink salt, onion powder, and garlic powder. Sprinkle with all spice and nutmeg. Mix well and add 1/2 tsp minced ginger. Bake for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through. They should be easily pierced with a fork when done.

Spinach

For the spinach, I used a frozen package, be sure to set it out to thaw. To speed up this process, run thr package under hot water. Then press spinach in a paper towel to remove excess liquid.

Preheat a skillet over medium. Lightly coat with hot pepper sesame oil.
Add 1 tsp minced garlic and spinach and cook. Add 1/2 tsp onion powder and 1/4 tsp garlic powder.  
Mix in a pinch each smoked salt (or sea salt) and freshly ground black pepper. Cook for about 8-10 minutes.

I loved these two together and love how simple it is to make.
