Green soup and stir fry madness

Yesterday for breakfast, I bulked up my oatmeal!


I used 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup plain soymilk, 1/4 cup of water. Then I added a tbsp of flaxseed meal, and my usual bananas and PB. This definitely kept me full for a while!

For lunch, I tried another new soup for me. I remember the days when I thought split pea soup was just what they used for The Exorcist!


It was quite green!


While it wasn’t my preferred consistency of split pea soup, it had a very unique taste to others I have tried.

It was kind of “peppery” and even a bit on the spicy side. I really enjoyed it. Whole wheat English muffin on the side.


I was planning on making baked tofu for dinner but then I remembered the tasty stir fry I made last week and all of the ones Mari has been enjoying lately.

So stir fry it was!

I started with the tofu this time, pressing out the water and browning it a bit.


Then I added this entire bag of veggies.



Then I poured a tablespoon of each of these into the skillet.


It was an interesting combination for sure, but it came out great! Sweet, hot and salty? Yes, please.


The veggies were good, I love asparagus and squash. I almost got a different bag but I’m so glad I went with this one.

Pita on the side with some Smart Balance Light. Perfect dinner!


I’m going to have to take a page out of Mari’s book next time and add some peanut butter!

Vegan brownies for dessert of course 🙂


I can’t wait to make more recipes out of My Sweet Vegan…perhaps later today?
