:: 23rd post ::

"greenleaf lettuce, oakleaf lettuce**, raw red bell pepper**, carrot, tofu (with soy sauce), mung beans*, radishes, sunflower seeds, lentils, millet*, 1000 island dressing*"

THV Salty Roasted Asparagus over Sesame Mung Beans. The asparagus** is roasted with soy sauce and served over mung beans* that have been tossed with sesame oil, red bell pepper** and fresh basil** and garnished with sunflower seeds. Oh hey almost everything in this meal is organic, did you notice? Just the sesame oil and sunflower seeds weren't.

I had some beautiful veggies so I decided to make a stir-fry:

Here are some of the ingredients. Red bell pepper**, yellow bell pepper, tofu, portabella mushrooms, asparagus**, scallions** (in the little bowl), garlic, tangelo zest (I just put the whole tangelo down in the picture).

Here is some broccoli**, kale**, and spinach**. Not pictured was also some gf soy sauce, peas, brown rice and garlic hot sauce.

Miso soup, made of kale, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, chickpeas, carrots, onion, red miso, and sesame seeds. Not very traditional, but very good.

I wanted another little veggie platter. This time we have brown rice tortilla chips, roasted asparagus, and raw red bell pepper, and roasted garlic hummus. I wanted some carrots too but I was out :(

Wild mushroom soup. It's very good, but needs work, it's got enoki*, portabella and oyster mushrooms, oregano, lemon and basil**. I garnished it with extra basil** and enoki mushrooms*

red leaf lettuce, yellow bell peppers, tofu*, chickpeas, radishes, asparagus. I tried to make a different salad dressing by mixing grainy mustard with seasoned rice vinegar, I really liked it at first, but I could only eat half of the dressing because it was way to strong.

Smoothie if purple grapes, blueberries, strawberries**, blackberries, papaya, stevia*, and soymilk*

Fruit salad of green grapes, gala apple, Asian pear, kiwi, and strawberries**. I'd never had an Asian pear before, and they're really good, they taste like (tome at least) like a peach, but have the texture of an apple crossed with a pear.

Salad of lentils, romaine, carrots, red bell pepper, asparagus and 1000 island dressing. With a side of brown rice tortilla chips (love these!), I sprinkled these with dried oregano before I baked them, and then topped them with fresh basil after they were done. Yummy, though I sorta burned them :(

Smoothie of strawberries**, soymilk*, stevia*. I decided to do a little twist and add some Chinese 5 spice powder (which is star anise, cloves, cinnamon, anise, and ginger), it was really good, I only added a little, so it was just like a hint of it, and it smelled awesome.

THV 4 bean chili. Salad of red leaf lettuce, carrots, red bell pepper, lentils, 1000 island dressing. The chili I made a while ago and froze, it's so good, though I did it a little differently than normal, I roasted the garlic, onions and pepper, then blended it with the tomatoes, so it was kinda sweet. Next time I'm gonna try and add more veggies.
