August’s Veggie Meals

August was a pretty tasty month. I made lots of vegan and vegetarian meals. I even convinced my family to try a few of them.

Simple Salad and Breadsticks.

I should really make homemade breadsticks more often, they make a fantastic side to just about everything.

Grilled Veggie Wrap

Super tasty, super quick, and a good way to use up leftovers.

Edamame with Sea Salt

This is one of my very favorites. I like it all by itself when I don’t feel like cooking.

Here’s one more salad with homemade bread for lunch.

And then salad and homemade bread for dinner. It must have been just too hot to cook on this August day, or I had salad in the fridge that I needed to use.

Lately, I’m hooked on all things Vegan Veggie Wraps. This one had a sliced avocado, and it was tasty and cool.

Vegan Tostadas

Some with re-fried beans, some just with sliced avocado

Lemon Avocado Pasta

This dish was another “use what you’ve got on hand” meal.

Very Vegan Soup

It was time to clean out the fridge and use up all of the produce hiding out. Perfect solution, make a big batch of soup, and freeze it for later meals.

Avocados!

Just perfect all by themselves.

Vegan Burrito Bowl

I am also obsessed with just about anything vegan in a bowl.

Vegan Panko Cauliflower

This has become my go-to dinner when the family wants Panko Chicken, and I do too, but I’m not going to eat it. Hello Cauliflower, the perfect substitute.

Vegan Burrito Bowl

This tasty bowl included Re-fried Black Beans, Homemade Restaurant Style Mexican Rice, and a mashed Sweet Potato.

Vegan Mexican Pinwheels with Homemade Salsa

I made this tasty dish with leftovers from the fridge. These little pinwheels were fantastic.

Vegan Hummus Wrap and Gala Apple Slices

I pile this wrap full of homemade Hummus, black olives, homemade salsa, and lots of shredded lettuce. This is good for a snack, or a meal.

Vegan Tostadas with Homemade Tortilla Chips

This is the one vegan/vegetarian meal that my family won’t complain about eating.

Very Vegan Soup

This was from the freezer, and it reheated beautifully for a fast dinner.

Vegan Sweet & Sour Cauliflower and Edamame

I really loved this dish. I am a big fan of Chinese take-out, but I want it vegan. I decided to make my own, and it was just amazing. I’ll be making this again, and again, and again.

Vegan Burrito Bowl

This was another meal full of leftovers, and two beautiful avocados.

Vegan Noodle Bowl

I love Noodle Bowls. I always make extra for later leftovers.

Baked Sweet Potato and Vegan Corn Pudding

I was craving corn pudding full of cheese, and heavy cream, and all that awesome dairy that I know I shouldn’t be eating, so I veganized it, and it was pretty good. It wasn’t as rich and filling as the original, but my tummy didn’t complain.

I also tried to go completely vegan in August. I only made it five days, but that is pretty good. I am trying to eat at least 2/3 of my meals vegan every day, and I’m cutting back on my soda drinking too.

We’ll see how September goes…
