30 minute vegan fajitas

I love this vegan recipe because it’s packed with veggies but the walnut meat and guacamole make it feel very indulgent. What I do is place all the sides on the table and then let everyone build their own fajita’s.

Sides:

Sautéed Vegetables

4 peppers, orange, red, yellow or green

1 zuchcini

1/2 onion

1 clove garlic

Guacamole

1 ripe avocado

1/4 lime

1 tbsp cilantro chopped

salt and pepper

Walnut Meat

1 cup walnuts

1 tbsp olive oil

pinch of paprika

pinch of sea salt

pinch of cumin

Other sides

Chopped Tomatoes

Chopped Spinach

Salsa

sprouted grain tortillas (if your gluten free go for corn or flaxseed wraps.)

1. Heat the oven 350 F, then start chopping all your veg and heat up a skillet with oil.

2.  First add your onions to the skillet, let cook for a couple minutes and then add the rest of the veg.

3. Toss your walnuts in the oil and spices then transfer to a baking sheet, put in the oven and toast (takes about 15 mins but watch them.)

4. While your walnuts and veggies are cooking roughly chop your spinach and tomatoes then transfer to a dish.

5. Begin to assemble your guacamole by mashing up the avocado and mixing in the lime juice, cilantro and sea salt.

5. Take your sautéed veggies and transfer to a holding dish, cover with tinfoil till ready to serve.

6. Transfer your toasted almonds to either a food processor or blender and pulse. roughly 30 seconds until you get the texture of ground beef.

 

Poached Eggs in Avocado

poached eggs and avocado recipeI’m absolutely obsessed with avocados, here is one of the first of MANY avocado recipes.

1 tbsp high smoke point oil (I use grape seed)

1 avocado

2 free range eggs

salt and pepper

1. Heat your pan with oil then slice your avocado in half.

2. Remove the pin and peel then place the avocado in your pan.

3. Now carefully crack the eggs into the centre of the avocado

4. Place a lid on top of the pan and keep the heat on medium.

It shouldn’t take too long to cook but definitely keep an eye on it, and make sure the heats not too high or else the whites underneath the yoke don’t cook through.

Season to your taste, if you’re trying to get your greens in you can also serve with sautéed spinach and salsa. Yum!

Good Morning! Breakfast Sandwich

Good Morning! My Sunday Breakfast Sandwich

This sandwich is so delicious I had to wipe the drool off my face as I wrote the recipe….seriously.

Its packed with nutrients and will keep you full long past lunch, it’s takes about 10 minutes to put together including the fry time but trust me well worth the effort.

Ingredients

1 cage free egg

1 tsp grape seed oil (or whatever high smoke point oil you have on hand)

1/2 cup roughy chopped spinach

1/2 tomato

1/2 small avocado mashed

1 thin slice of aged cheddar (If you want to make your sandwich more indulgent keep the cheddar but if your watching your calories omit and I promise it’s still delish)

2 pieces sprouted grain bread-or any gluten free variety you may prefer!

**This recipe also works great in a wrap but I’d suggest scrambling your egg over frying.

Steps:

In a skillet heat your oil for a minute then crack your egg and cook, once the whites are solid flip.

As soon as the egg is on the skillet put your bread in the toaster, if you time it right the toast will be done about 30 seconds before the egg so you have time to begin assembling your sandwich.

While the bread is in the toaster start cutting your spinach, tomato, cheddar and avocado.

I like my egg done so that the centre is just a tiny bit runny but really its personal preference.

Assemble your sandwich and enjoy!!
