Our easy, Meatless Monday dinner last night...
If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen this already so I am sorry for the repeat post for some.
Veggie patty in a portabella mushroom cap over zucchini and squash noodles. Topped with blended:mango/pineapple/coconut+ fresh mint/fresh cilantro.
I usually use frozen organic fruit (if I don't have fresh) that I have on hand (which I also use in my smoothies)
I can use them to blend up and top off wild caught fish, organic chicken, or salad glazes/dressings.
This veggie patty package was purchased at Costco. Have I mentioned that we purchased a Costco membership recently because ours has a ton of organic food! Saving money, eating well, and shopping less is heaven! I spent the usual amount and have double if not triple the food stock.
I like these veggie patties because they are soft and sweet potato-like with a lot of flavor. It has the consistency of a soft crab cake.
(If you are open to trying these, don't go into it thinking "veggie burger".
I don't like when meat eaters try and substitute something for meat that is plant based and then complain that it doesn't taste like meat. Uhhh... Why would plants taste like meat ? It's not meat, and that's the beauty of it. Don't try and make it something that it's not! Haha Enjoy it for what it is...
I had tried "veggie burgers" in the past and it didn't work out for me. They were a hard consistency and a lot of them have questionable ingredients. I'd much rather have a quality, grass fed beef burger than a hard veggie burger with 100 weird ingredients.
So I am happy I found a veggie patty that I like now.
Here they are if you want to try them out.
Ava (and Mark) enjoyed them too!! Toddler approved!!! #momWIN
Steaming some zoodles!
Then today for lunch I was still craving them...
I added some veggie patties to a small salad. (Same glaze as above)
I just added hemp hearts. (Also bought at Costco.
