LightLife Bowls, Use-What-You-Have-Casserole, Vegan Thumb Print Cookies

Before I get into a few other finds from yesterday I forgot to mention this Southwestern Quinoa & Black Bean Bowl I found at Wegman's a few weeks ago.  It was fairly good.  I would probably buy it again when and if it's ever on sale.


One of the items I grabbed while at Mustard Seed Market yesterday were these Vegan Thumb Print Cookies!  They came in a 3-pack and were tasty.  They used a whole wheat based flour.  I also bought some Chocolate Cookies and will be sharing those with you in a couple of days!  I decided to treat myself because I don't often have vegan cookies.  One - because I don't bake, Two - because they aren't often found in my area.  And Three - I don't have that much of a sweet tooth that I crave them that often.

Here is a Casserole I threw together based on what I had on-hand.  I threw everything in a glass dish and baked it for about an hour at 375.  I used 2 C Kamut Pasta, 1 small can of tomato sauce, 1 C water, 1/4-1/2 small bag of frozen tater tots, Crushed Corn Chips to layer, 1/2 bag of frozen veggies (I used peas, carrots, corn, green beans), 1/2 can chickpeas, 1/2 Jar of salsa, and 2 handfuls of vegan shredded cheese (I used Daiya Pepper Jack).  Talk about COMFORT FOOD...this was FAB!  And I'm pretty proud of myself...I didn't even use any additional spices!

  1. Cookies look great! Not gluten-free, I guess.
