Veggie Curry

Vegetables in Coconut Curry
by SimpleVeda’s Christina Vargas
If you like the flavors of Indian cuisine, this is a super easy veggie dish in coconut milk that I love!! When I’m not sure what to do with all the veggies in the fridge, I resort to this!! Today I added chickpeas to it!

Chicken Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad Salad
by Kirsten G.
Formula = protein+nut+crunchy+herb+greens, and just spoonful or two of vegan mayo (I like Spectrum or Just Mayo brands), plus a light dressing of rice bran oil or olive oil, lemon juice, a bit of dijon mustard whisked together, kosher salt and pepper. (Toss some of the dressing in with the chicken salad mix and some on the greens too). Today, I used shredded roast chicken, toasted walnuts, apple, fresh parsley, on a bed of butter lettuce and radicchio. Alternative combos: tuna in olive oil, toasted almonds, celery or cucumber, fresh tarragon. Gluten-free, dairy-free, high protein, low-carb. Only a teensy bit of sugar I suppose in the dijon and vegan mayo but think considering all the nutrition it offers, worth it. Even if you omit those, it works. Adjust to your liking. Enjoy!

Cauliflower Soup

Cauliflower+Fennel+Celery Root Soup
Shared by Kirsten G.
No cream necessary! Makes about 6 servings. Just two of us last night, so we froze the rest in individual servings in small mason jars. (We served this alongside grilled salmon and a simple butter lettuce salad with white balsamic vinaigrette.)

A Veggie Stir-fry

Go-to good for you ‘recipe’
By Dawn A.
When I am short on time/ am not feeling up to par…I take Traders Joe’s chicken and veggie soup and give it an upgrade. 🙂 I add an extra container of bone broth and typically add any extra veggies floating around my fridge – tho you can be more deliberate with veggies of your choice. Sometimes I add extra chicken if I have some in my fridge or I grab a rotisserie chicken and pull off the meat for extra flavor/protein. This is can easily become a well balanced nutritionally dense soup w just a few upgrades!
