Hey Friends,
I thought I'd share another Vegan "What I ate in a Day" Dinner edition.  I can't promise I'll do them all the time (sometimes I repeat dinners), but I will do what I can.  If you'd like to check out the first post I did, you can do so HEREEnjoy!

Monday: Spaghetti with Caesar Salad and Toasted Garlic Tortilla

Side Serving:  I also served this with a large side of broccoli and Brussels sprouts.
Recipe Link: Vegan Caesar Salad
Notes:  For the Caesar Salad:  I only make the dressing and without any changes.  It is perfect the way it is.  I have made the chickpea croutons and they are an excellent addition.  For the Spaghetti Sauce:  I use one jar of Classico Marinade and have added in leftover lentil/mushroom mix and also some leftover quinoa meat.

Tuesday:  Tofu Scramble w/Homemade Vegan Sausage Patties

Notes:  This is a great dish to make, take what you need and freeze the rest.   Easy addition into other recipes, such as sauce or on top of rice.

Recipe Link: Vegan Alfredo
Notes:  For the Crab Cakes: I just wing them (Hearts of Palm, Chickpeas plus "sea" seasonings, Old Bay,  garlic, lemon, dijon, coconut yogurt, salt and chickpea flour).  I let the mixture rest for a few hours, then we grill them.  I use a BBQ Mat when dealing with delicate food so it doesn't fall through the grate.


Saturday:  BBQ Burgers, Cold Rice Salad, Baked Sweet and Little Potatoes, a Few Pieces of Homemade Sushi and Romaine Lettuce

Recipe Links: BBQ Burgers
  For the Cold Rice Salad:  Cold Brown Rice, Sunflower Seeds, Cucumber, Shredded Carrots and Fresh Parsely.  Dressing I believe was a little bit of Tamari, Lime Juice and a touch of Olive oil.  Spices were Garlic Powder, Chili Powder and a little Pepper.  For the Sushi:  Sushi Rice, Carrots and Avocado.  I used the romaine lettuce to wrap the burgers, add some sweet potato and topped with the rice salad and Coconut Yogurt.
