Fav Organic Vegan Recipes

Punchfork.com is not only a great new way to waste your time, but it also contains hundreds (thousands?) of recipes organized by diet so that you can look through gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan and kosher recipes in separate categories! So good.

I have picked out two of my fav vegan recipes to share with you because they are healthy, light, colorful dishes that will not fuck with your summer diet. Vegan food is where it’s at.

Brown Coconut Rice with Cilantro
  • Cilantro (3 tbsp)
  • Coconut, sweetened (2 tbsp)
  • Ginger, fresh (1 tsp)
  • Coconut milk, light (1 cup)
  • Garlic clove (1 clove)
  • Salt (1/4 tsp)
  • Brown rice (1 cup)
  • Water (1 1/4 cup

Bring ingredients to a boil and then let simmer for 40ish minutes. Keep covered for 10 more mins. Fluff with fork. Brown rice is amaze. White rice is evil.

Veggie Infused Quinoa Salad

  • Artichoke hearts (1 can)
  • Cherry tomatoes (1/2 cup)
  • Lemon, fresh (1)
  • Mint, fresh leaves (1 few)
  • Onion (1/2)
  • Oregano, fresh (1 A few sprigs)
  • quinoa
  • Garlic cloves
  • Olive oil, Extra virgin (1)
  • Salt and pepper (1)
  • Vegetable stock, low sodium (1 cup)
  • black olives
  • tofu

Saute onions, garlic, oregano. Add quinoa to pan and toast it a bit. Add veggie broth, s & p, simmer on low and cook for like 40 mins. Oh yeah, and cover the pan. Let it cool for about 30 mins after the liquid has evaporated and the quinoa is tender, and then add everything else, including cubed tofu. So summery!

These are really easy to make and require little to no real skill, considering that I can’t cook for shit and I am able to put them both together perfectly.

A few other things I can make:

  • glass of water
  • apple, washed
  • variety of salads
  • toast (this can be tricky)

Good fucking luck!
