Happy Weekend all! Thank you all for sharing your Vegetarian St. Paddy’s Day recipe ideas. I haven’t decided yet what to make but I need to pick something soon since it’s only two days away. You know, I have to agree with Leah I should’ve saved my “Eating in Circles” title for National Pi Day 03-14. Next year!
There have been so many tasty eats the past few days that I do not know where to start. So, I am just going to do a Weekly Photo Highlight of my favorite things and if you see any recipes you want me to post, just let me know.
My current fruit addiction ~ grapes & berries. I love the sweet and tart crunchy combination.
I love it when the sriracha and cheese go all over and my tortilla gets super crunchy when I leave it in the pan too long in my Healthy Egg Rolls (SF + 1 WPA) – 5 points+
Subway 3 Inch Veggie & Egg Flat Bread sandwiches ~ so simple, yet, so delicious.
(SF + 3 WPA) – 4 points+
We had our birthday lunch celebration catered by Panera at work and I totally made it work vegetarian style!
I am in love with this Mediterranean Veggies Sandwich. (SF+ 7 WPA) – 7 points+
Served with a Classic Salad w/ RF Balsamic on the side. (SF)
Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake ~ need I say more?!
Have I ever mentioned The Husband is crazy about anything with beans and cheese along with chips and salsa?
So, I decided to combine all his favorite things for a fun lunch.
Who says you have to make 7 layer bean dip only for parties?
He actually sliced all those olives himself!
Served on top of lettuce and topped with jalapenos and sweet pepper chips.
(SF + 1 WPA) – 4 points+
Scooped up with homemade corn tortilla chips. SF + 1 WPA per tortilla or 8 chips.
I’ve found two meat substitutes that have worked at helping The Husband out since he started missing meat this past week. Here is one..the other is the burgers I made tonight.
Morning Star Buffalo Chickless Sandwiches
My favorite dinner of the week ~ Veggie Lettuce Wraps!
My proteins were these delicious cremini mushrooms and yukon potatoes.
Sautéed in sesame oil with fresh ginger, garlic.
Then, tossed with a little hoisin, soy and sriracha sauce.
100% Simply Filling and Vegetarian! I love how the crisp lettuce offset the sweet and spicy crunchy veggies.
HIs favorite dinner of the week ~ Big Mac-Less Burgers as he called them
I am sure you all have noticed I am not too big on meat substitutes because most seem so processed. These Boca Burgers are not too bad and the smoky tasty really goes a long way with flavor.
So does having excellent toppers ~ crispy iceberg, sweet red onion, juicy tomatoes, crunchy pickles and a “Almost Fast Food Burger” secret sauce.
SF + 3 WPA for the bun – you could use a reduced calorie bun and have it be 100% SF.
I also made a batch of my Vegan Harvest Grain Salad for sides and snacks this week.
Today marks the half way point for Meatless March and I am still digging it. I think the key really is to keep healthy options on hand to grab and go, but, also, to try new recipes that I am excited about.
I will catch up with you all tomorrow with my Simply Filling Vegetarian Week 3 Menu.
