Does your teenager want to go vegan? Here is something they can make themselves! 😉
🌱
Baked Beans on toast.
Fairdinkum it doesn't have to be hard!
🌱
And legumes (the beans) + grains (in the bread) combined have all the amino acids that equal a complete protein (boring technical part, but important!)
🌱
A bit more protein would be good so include a side of one of the new protein yoghurts out there. Or do what I did and have a muffin (I made a batch with protein powder in them... and blueberries... and banana - delish).
🌱
Baked beans have also featured at some point in our diet for lunch or dinner - only limited by your imagination 😋
🌱
Your welcome 🙏

If you are vegan, you need to eat lots to be sure to get enough nutrients. Today's breaky - tofu scramble 😋
And I polished it off easy!
🌱
Instead of typing out how i did it, i found this one on Pinterest that was practically the same by Easy Tofu Scramble Wrap Recipe
I just added veg that was available (capsicum, broccoli, mushrooms and spring onions) and did toast instead of wrap (obviously 😳)
🌱
Nearly 28g of protein ✔️
Easy to make ✔️
🌱
I block tofu said 3 serves so I've got 2 breakys prepped... unless JayJay finds it... I did put it at the back of the fridge, and she has taken herself off socials so she won't see this.... I've got a good chance of keeping them.
🌱
Does your teenager want to go vegan?
Mine did, and because I know she eats like this, I'm sure I worry less about what she eats now than if she wasn't vegan. ❤️

A 'throw whatever is left in the fridge' pizza... for want of a better name... kids could make this themselves!
🌱
Pulled out 2 homemade lentil wraps from the freezer and threw them in the toaster
Leftover roast tomato sauce on the bottom (you could use tomato paste or tomato sauce)
Leftover roast veg chopped up
Leftover homemade baked tofu feta on top
In the oven for a bit, and yum!
🌱
Food prep to the rescue once again... but I mightn't have thought of it if I hadn't been scrolling and saw someone (whose name alludes me) make a pizza on a wrap - inspired!
🌱
Consequently, the fridge is now pretty bare and food prep underway. 🍌🧅🧄🫚🍋🫐🌽🍄🥦🌶🫘🌮🍠🍹😉

Yes, it is a huge piece of lasagna, and yes, I ate it all!
I need to ... because when the vegan finds it, I won't get anymore.
🌱
Recipe from - Lentil and Walnut Bolognese Lasagna. Delicious!
I added 2 tablespoons of bbq sauce though - family tradition. Yum.
🌱
AND I had left over bolognese sauce that I added some peri peri seasoning to and had tacos for lunch!
🌱
Check out the "cheese' sauce - loaded with veg, and only 1/2 cup of cashews, and it's amazing.
🌱
I'd love to freeze a couple of serves... but I love having it in the fridge to look forward to, so I don't think I will this time... at the risk of JayJay thinking the same thing.

Hangin' with my baby 🥰
AND I have permission to use the photo! 🥰
🌱
This is a regular scenario, and I love it.
🌱
At least an hour hanging in the kitchen together.
I heard stories about her week (unsolicited).
I got to ask what's coming up this week.
We chatted, and laughed.... cause we asked Dad to take a photo and he took 2, which were both s**t.

BBQ Oyster mushrooms from - just Wow!
🌱
I'm a huge fan of whacking stuff on a tray and into the oven - this requires a tiny bit more work but not much.
Just shred the mushrooms and whip up a home-made BBQ sauce which is all pantry staples!
🌱
When my gorgeous teenage vegan (JayJay) found them she asked what sauce i used.. I said 'I made the BBQ sauce from the recipe". She said 'oh yum' before she even ate it because we've had it before and she knew it was great.
🌱
The texture is chewy and would have been smokey except I didn't have liquid smoke in the pantry... I will get some.
🌱
Made a taco out of it with lentil wrap I had in the freezer and some coleslaw. Yum.

Your teenager wants to go vegan? 5 things your vegan can make themselves, that they will love…. And so will you…
🌱
Yes big call to say they ‘will’ love it, but they need to be willing to try new things and we need to be excited for them.
🌱
This is the way we did it – veganising things that we loved.
🌱
1. Sausage rolls – pretty much if you wrap anything in puff pastry it is sensational. Regular puff pastry is usually just flour, oil and water = no animal products = yay. Lots of different recipes online – tofu based ones, mushroom based ones, lentil based ones – take your pick. If they are average, just dunk them in more tomato sauce.
🌱
2. Lentil mushroom Bolognese – blitz those mushrooms and they fairdinkum look like mince and they have a gorgeous earthy flavour. Add in a bottle of passata (crushed tomatoes) and a tin of lentils then you have the base – garlic, onion, maybe some herbs and there you go!
🌱
3. Tacos – your mind will be blown with this version: Vegan Tofu Taco Crumbles by It is just a block of tofu and a bottle of salsa basically but what she can do with tofu will change the way you look at it forever.
🌱
4. Carbonara sauce – my fav is vegan carbonara
🌱
5. Bean burrito – there are so many versions on Pinterest that basically follow the same pattern – delicious bean and veg mixture, rice, and avo on a wrap. Batch cook the elements and mix it up during the week. On a wrap one day, turn into nachos the next, wrap in puff pastry and bake the next… you get the idea.

I love fried rice!
🌱
Easy pantry food! As long as I have a block of tofu in the fridge, I'm good to go.
🌱
Cooked rice, tofu scramble (tofu, turmeric, pepper, black salt, nutritional yeast), frozen peas, preserved chili, soy sauce and garlic.
🌱
I love cooking the hell out of the rice so it is crispy. I'm always surprised at how much of it I can eat 😋
When I think I have enough for 2 meals..... all of a sudden I don't.

Carrot lox - our version of smoked salmon and it is Amazing!!!!
🌱
All the recipes on Pinterest are pretty similar so give it a go. I got to try this out in an 'afternoon tea' class at I was excited as had wanted to try it, but I thought surely it didnt taste as good as it looked. It bloody well does though!
🌱
And easy peasy!
🌱
With some vegan ricotta.. Omfg!

Carrot cake in mini loaf form (did a version in muffin trays too) - very cool idea for individual servings, and easy to freeze leftovers.
🌱
I didn't make them. I don't bake. I don't need to - my vegan baby does.
🌱
I asked what recipe she used and she named one but said she changed it so much, subbing out vegan versions of butter and milk and gf flour that it wasn't very similar in the end so was reluctant to give anyone credit.
🌱
We can give credit to for including one in the new class centred around afternoon tea though. We taste tested them 😋 Amazing!!!
🌱
Happy Easter 🥕🥮🐰

Solid as a rock!
🌱
This is about 50m from my mum n dads home so I went for an early morning walk last weekend.
🌱
I look pretty pleased with myself, and I am! I've got a big smile on my face today too... my baby asked me if I wanted to watch her do a presentation at uni 👩‍💻
I'm not sure what I loved the most - that she was magnificent, or that she asked me to come 🥰
🌱
That's my nourished vegan for you. So so proud.

This is my vegan daughters salad bowl! She makes enough for 4 people then proceeds to eat THE WHOLE LOT because it tastes delicious.
🌱
Today's dish was a cabbage, radish, coriander thing topped with cashews and a sesame type dressing that she copied from one she had at a restaurant recently and loved. I was very impressed! But not quick enough to get a photo.
🌱
No protein, but that was quickly fixed with a protein shake for desert.
🌱
I love her choices.
🌱
I love the habits she has developed.
🌱
I love that she can do this herself.

Mum! What can we do with this broccoli?
Quinoa enchilada bake from is a particular fav honey!
🌱
So easy and just delicious! Other than capsicum, pretty much everything else might be in your pantry.
I skip the cheese and baking part.
🌱
High protein from the beans and quinoa - I get almost 20g from this baby.
🌱
Today's serve was complimentary of my freezer, as were the lentil wraps which I simply dumped in the toaster. Lucky there was some lettuce and coconut yoghurt handy
Fast food!

It's all about the veg.... but not quite..... its really all about the DRESSING 👩‍🍳
🌱
Google Green Goddess Dressing and take your salads, or veg to the next level.
Aesthetically and nutritionally speaking!
🌱
And GARNISH! For goodness sake, sprink some nuts over that baby!
The difference it makes is astounding AND some vitamins actually aren't absorbed well unless they have a fat buddy with them ie A, D, E and K).
🌱
Do yourself a favour and food prep a batch of dressing. Your future self will thank you 😋

Kale and chickpea salad ❤️ that you will be serving up at every opportunity!
🌱
Aside from looking spectacular, it has fantastic nutritional value and is easy peasy.
🌱
I learnt this one vegan cooking school. My gorgeous vegan baby loves this so much she will eat most it in one sitting.
🌱
Chickpeas - toss in your fav spices and a touch of oil then roast till crispy.
Kale - wash and chop a bunch, massage with juice of 1 lemon and 1 tblsp oil. Get your hands in there and scrunch that stuff up. You will feel it soften - about 5min'ish.
Dressing - garlic, tahini (LOL, spell check changed that to Tahiti.... one day), maple syrup, lemon juice, salt and a bit of hot water to get it to saucy consistency.
Cucumber adds crunchy fresh texture and pretty contrast.
🌱
Chickpeas (legume) + Tahini (seed) = complete protein.
Kale is off the scale Vit C and has Iron so perfect match.
And it just plates up so beautifully.
🌱
Kale. The last frontier 🤪

The famous 'no-tuna' chickpea salad - Google it - it is amazing. I thought Ok I'll sub out the tuna in a roll.
🌱
It works!!!!! Smidge of wasabi and dunk in soy.
It is great.
🌱
I'm s**t at sushi rolls but I was reminded here about a contraption that did it for you, a 'sushezi'. THEN I remembered that I had one!
🌱
They do look a bit fluoro but I do put double the turmeric in (always with pepper so it i actually get the benefit). I haven't edited the photo at all!

Vegetable Vegan Frittata - nailed it!
🌱
Finally found a way to use that bloody spring form cake tin stashed at the back of the cupboard - I so don't bake. Obviously liked the idea of baking once... luckily my vegan baby is a baker so got the bases covered.
🌱
Based on recipe from
Just subbed out potato for sweet potato. Didn't have any cherry tomatoes and I reckon that would be great. Saw a comment that someone swapped zucchini for broccoli so I'm doing that next time too.
🌱
I used hard tofu - worked better. Made it again a couple of days later (finished the first one and loved having something i could just grab that was also great cold) with softer tofu and it only just held together. Still tasted amazing. Figured I could Fry it up on toast a.d voila tofu scramble.
🌱
Have a couple of pieces in the freezer ready to go. 13g protein per slice - sensational m'tea!!!

Satay sauce ... with obvious other stuff
is less obvious, and it's amazing.
Roasted sweet potato (kumara)
English spinach
Red cabbage / carrot
Rice noodles
🌱
Food Prep at its best ❤️
🌱
My satay is just red curry paste, peanut butter, soy sauce. Lime juice, little bit of maple syrup (1 Tblsp) and water. Sensational. I used to add coconut milk, but fair dinkum, the flavour is stronger if you don't - absolutely delicious!
🌱
I eat this at least 5 times a week.

How good are holidays!!! Found Maclean in NSW - well, we knew it was there, but didn't know about the scottish family tartens painted on the power posts! What a great attraction.
🌱
Another highlight of the trip was a bakery asking me for vegan ideas to offer as they get asked a lot. Whipped up four flavours of overnight oats for them to try... and they LOVED them! Stay tuned.
🌱
Apple and cinnamon
Banana and peanut butter
Blueberries and cinnamon
Raison and cacao (trust me!)
🌱
Home now and had guests staying this week and hadn't thought about breaky for them - early flight. Lucky above was fresh in my head, so whipped up the apple one, and had a very happy guest!!! Nailed it
🌱
Hope you're nailing it!
