Recent Meals // Easy & Quick

I hope that you all have been having a great week so far. I am super pumped that the time change is this weekend! Spring is almost here 🙌 I've been cooking every night this week and focusing on meals that don't have a ton of ingredients, can be prepped the night before, and don't take over half an hour. My daughter checked out the first Harry Potter book from the library and we are working our way through it each night so I don't have time to be in the kitchen long :] 

I have a really laid back approach to meal time when it comes to my daughter (5 years old). I'll share more in depth in another post, but I made notes after each recipe about how I adapted it for her. So, now onto the good stuff!

Budget Bytes Curried Chickpeas & Spinach » Such a fantastic recipe! It's so easy to make - 20 minutes from prepping to serving! - and so good. This is such a flavorful meal with few ingredients. It's a great one to make on busy nights. I used some boxed brown rice from Aldi that took five minutes to make on the stovetop. This has some spice to it.. so my daughter got rice, plain chickpeas, and some of the leftover pasta and veggies from the soup that I link to below. 👇

Minimalist Baker's 1 Pot Vegan Minestrone Soup » I didn't use gluten-free pasta on this one like she does in the recipe but I still followed the same directions and it turned out really well! My daughter doesn't like soups so I just drained the broth off and gave it to her as a bowl of pasta and veggies. This was a great recipe! It did make a lot of leftovers for us and when I pulled it out of the fridge the next day the pasta had soaked up all the broth. That was fine for me since that's how my daughter liked it but just an FYI if you're planning on making this too.

Brand New Vegan's Cauliflower Tacos » MAKE THIS RECIPE NOW! Oh my goodness.. it was incredible! I loved the addition of chopped up walnuts. My husband really liked these and my daughter didn't want to try them so I made a cheese quesadilla and steamed some broccoli for her instead 😜 I served our tacos with warm corn tortillas, shredded lettuce, this pico, vegan sour cream & cheese, and hot sauce.

I've been sharing recent meals over on my Instagram and trying my hand at Instagram stories while I'm cooking. I haven't been brave enough to actually talk on the videos because I don't know if I can handle hearing my voice just yet haha I'll work up to that one.

Have a great weekend!
