Hey! Long time, no post! But all is well. It’s Friday night here and I’m cooking vegan food for the whole family. Actually our daughter asked for this meal tonight. So I’m happy to deliver. I made some red pepper hummus, sliced cherry tomatoes and did a stir fry of oyster mushrooms, tempeh, white onions and garlic. Also on deck was some brown rice with veggie broth and black beans.
A quick note about the hummus: No oil! The recipe I usually use calls 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving, but oil is not good for your body. I substituted 2 tablespoons of veggie broth. Guess what? No noticeable difference in taste or texture! Here’s the hummus recipe.
Verdict: Everyone liked it! The kids are not totally vegetarian, but we’re leaning toward a heavy plant-based menu for them. The more we study the issue, the more we feel they are better off with plants in their diet.
Meanwhile, I’m hanging in at 211 pounds these days. Although with the weekend at hand and my homebrew beer ready to drink, I may end up gaining a pound or two! Have a great weekend!
I’ll leave you another reason why you should drop oil from your menu. It’s not healthy!
