Last week was a great food week.  You know, one of those where everything tastes the way you want.  Good for me and for Vishnu!

Chocolate chip zucchini bread

I adapted Gina’s recipe and used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup pumpkin puree.  Delicious!

Breakfast tacos

Veggie tacos
These tacos were so good – corn & wheat tortillas, refried black beans, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, jalapeno, and salsa.  

Veggie and tofu stir-fry with a peanut citrus sauce

Trader Joe's 006 
I sautéed onions, garlic, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, broccoli slaw, and tofu in a little bit of olive oil and added salt, pepper, and TJs 21 salute seasoning.  I made the sauce by combining PB (microwave for 20 seconds), soy sauce, lemon juice, and a little bit of water.  YUM!

Three bean veggie chili

Trader Joe's 008
I don’t have a recipe for this (oops!).  It’s a combination of onions, mushrooms, carrots, garlic, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, black/garbanzo/kidney beans, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper.  I also added two “secret” ingredients – PB and cocoa.  I’ll document the exact amounts of each ingredient the next time around.

Baked egg chili

Davida’s recipe could not have come at a better time!  I (over) baked four eggs in a pan full of chili and can now say that if you haven’t tried this, you really should!  Chili + egg is a delicious/filling combination. 

Well, that was our week in home cooked food! 

Tell me – what did you make last week? Recipe links welcome!

  1. Oh wow can I come live with you guys- such yum eats! I especially intrigued by the sound of that chilli! One of my favourite dinners last week was kale sautéed with coconut oil & topped with runny eggs- so basic yet really hit the spot. I’m planning to make it tonight so hopefully I remember to photograph/write down the recipe!

    1. Come over! 🙂

      And the kale/egg recipe sounds so good! I made kale egg cups before – so yummy (link is on my recipe page).

    1. Thanks, Kacy! And yes, def. try the baked egg in chili idea. We really loved it! Now I just have to figure out how to bake an egg properly!
