What I Eat In A Day - Vegan Lifestyle

June 24, 2020


During this quarantine, I have been cooking S O much more lately, and I love it! I've cooked and baked food I wouldn't usually have because I wouldn't have had time. What a funny thought "time" is because we all know that sometimes we use that phrase as an excuse, and honestly, I believe I had. These recipes below don't take a lot of time to make, and they're super simple ingredients, so even the most beginner of chef/baker can make them!

Easy Baked Stuffed Mushrooms 🍄


I love an easy and simple meal to put together for a slow night, and these stuffed mushrooms are the perfect meal to quickly put together and enjoy in 20 minutes! 






Ingredients 

1 Pack of Cremini Mushrooms
1 Stick of Vegan Butter
1/2 Cup of Vegan Shredded Cheese
5 Cloves of Garlic
1 Tsp of Paprika
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
1 Cup of Soy Sauce
1 Cup of Cold Water

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine the Soy Sauce and water in a measuring cup to pour over stuffed mushrooms at the end.

Cut out the stems of the mushrooms and place them into a mixing bowl.

In the same mixing bowl, combine vegan butter, vegan cheese, garlic, paprika, and salt and pepper.

Fill the mushroom caps to your desired amount, I filled mine to the top, and place in an oven-safe dish!

Pour the soy sauce and water mixture into the oven-safe dish and place mushrooms into the oven for 20 minutes and enjoy!

Super Easy Spicy Asparagus Stir-fry 😋

I had asparagus wilting in the fridge, so I wanted to use them up before they go bad, and what's easier than a simple stir fry? 🌱 This dish is super refreshing, healthy, and takes less than 20 minutes to make! 👏

Ingredients

Asparagus cut in half
Toasted sesame seeds
Basmati rice⁣

For the Sauce

1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon Maple Syrup (adjust to your preference)⁣
1/4 Cup of Water⁣

Directions

Mix sauce ingredients in a bowl until well combined, set aside.⁣

Place the asparagus in a pan, turn heat to low-med & let the asparagus cook for 1 minute or so, depending on your crunch preference. (Asparagus will turn bright green at this time. If you prefer softer asparagus, extend the cooking time)⁣

Then, add in the sauce & cook for 1 minute or until the sauce is slightly reduced.⁣

Remove the lid, give the mixture a final quick toss & serve warm with rice & top with sesame seeds!
