A week of vegetarian meals

Quinoa with broccoli and cashews

Quinoa with broccoli and cashews

Nope, I'm not vegetarian.  However, I do give my digestive system a break and switch up my source of food nutrients.

 When I am eating meat I usually have organic chicken, beef or fish.  Moreover, I am totally good with tofu, tempeh, lots of beans and veggie's.  My patients always ask what I eat so I though I'd share a sample of my week of dinners, vegetarian style.  This is what is on the menu for dinner this week:

Nori Wraps with Miso Soup

http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2756 (I use short grain brown rice and Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids instead of soy sauce); http://allrecipes.com/recipe/miso-soup/ I do not use dashi and use organic extra firm tofu

Eggplant Lasagna

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/danny-boome/eggplant-lasagna-recipe/index.html* I also made a ricotta tofu based substitute that was so good: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2756

Portabello Mushroom, broccoli, asparagus, and red onion stir fry with glass bean thread noodles

I stir-fry/season with olive oil, Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids, sesame oil, fish sauce, red pepper flakes and fresh basil.

Pan roasted tempeh and summer vegetables with Mediterranean charmoula

http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/1811.  This is really tasty and EASY.  Great paired with a big yummy salad.

Quinoa with broccoli and cashews 

http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/1801.  This is more of a ‘keep in the fridge and snack on’ dish for my household.

Quinoa and sweet potato cakes

http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/3143.  This is another to pair with either raw pumpkin soup or a big salad.

Raw-ish Pasta Alfredo

I use the Alfredo sauce recipe from Alissa Cohen’s Living on Raw Food cookbook: 1 c.  each cashews, pine nuts and macadamia nuts, 3 tbsp lemon juice, 2 cloves garlic and 2 tbs water.  Blend until creamy in food processor.  I love the sauce over kelp noodles.  I also like to add halved grape tomatoes.

There it is.  Hope you enjoy!
