Much to my delight, I received my copy of Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan in the mail yesterday. I had been informed that it was on back-order for a few weeks, so I was pleasantly surprised by the arrival of this beloved green book. For lunch today I decided to make the White Bean Spread from the sandwiches section. I was particularly drawn to this recipe because of its inclusion of cashews--after yesterday's lunch I can't get enough of them! This was a really easy recipe to make too: I just dumped all the ingredients into my trusty Magic Bullet Blender and within seconds I had a tasty spread. I put a thick layer on a toasted oat bran pita with some fresh spinach. On the side I had some broccoli slaw (spritzed with Bragg's Liquid Aminos) and the last of the oranges.
Needless to say, I was once again quite satisfied with my dairy-free lunch. I am making a new resolution to try to enjoy at least one vegan meal per day. Both today's and yesterday's mid-day meals were free of animal products, and they were by far the superstar meals of the day. I think I'll be enjoying my lunches a lot more from hereon:) So, to all you vegans out there, or those of you who just happen to enjoy the earth's bounty, please send me your favorite vegan lunch ideas! Enjoy your evening.
