Eggplant Dinner

Hello Everyone! I know I have been MIA lately. But here is an awesome recipe I made today. SO YUMMY!

What you’ll need (if you can get everything organic, even better):

1 eggplant

1 cucumber

2 carrots

1 1/5 cups of your favorite tomato pasta sauce (I like a mushroom sauce)

1 cup Daiya cheese shreds (I used cheddar style)

Salt and pepper to taste

A little bit of Coconut oil (or olive oil)

Steps:

Pre-heat over at 425 degrees

1. Slice the eggplant and sauté the eggplant in the coconut oil until the eggplant cooks a little bit

2. Chop the carrot and cucumber

3. In a small baking pan, add the sauteed eggplant, carrot, and cucumber. Mix in the sauce and add the cheese on top.

4. Bake at 425 degrees for about 20-25 minutes

5. Enjoy! Makes about 4 portions.

Since I’m logging all my food I can tell you the nutritional facts…you’ll be amazed at how many calories in each serving….

1 serving has 179 calories!! (Might fluctuate based on the tomato sauce you used)

I had a 1/2 cup spinach with a bit of low cal dressing and 1/2 avocado.

ENJOY!!!

I would like to say that hummus is one of the greatest things that will ever exist for a vegan. It’s simple, inexpensive, delicious, and very much vegan. If you are ever in a sandwich or wrap type of mood and don’t know what to put in it, hummus is your answer. As a sandwich, topping, dipping, and as a meal, hummus will be your choice!

There are many different types of hummus available and I prefer the classic hummus without any of the additional stuff added. You can eat them with wraps, pita chips, chips, and even mix them up with some salsa! Hummus is a great source of protein, it contains all the good fats is most definitely good for you.

You can add some fresh tomatos, some falafels, add it to your salads, have it with some kale chips, carrot chips, and even cucumber slices. You can even mix it with some olive oil! There is no end to the types of foods or snacks you can create with hummus. It’s the best!

Enjoy! =)
