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!
