Recently juicing has become a huge part of my everyday life. This is not in an attempt to lose weight but more so about treating my body good. Along with my juice post I also share some of the food that I cook. I follow a pescatarian diet, on the days I don’t eat fish I don’t eat any meat at all. Although I do love a few vegan recipes I am not a vegan because I can’t give up cheese. I am not a chef at all however I do have a hidden love for cooking. I’ve been asked to share some of my juices and dishes!
I call my recipes the “Unmeasured Recipes” because I don’t measure anything when I cook except for baking or rice. I remember growing up my mom would beg me to sit in the kitchen and watch her cook in order to pick up a few skills. At that time cooking had none of my interest at all. My mom was one of the best in the kitchen. People would pay her during holidays or special occasions to make her infamous cheese cake. Until this very day I pray that her cheesecake recipe comes to me in a dream.
When looking for recipes online I find even with the suggested amount of seasoning some of the dishes still lack flavor. What scout online :
What was used / Ingredients ?
I love an overall shopping list for recipes its easier to filter through what I have.
What order it was prepared in:
I normally look for simple steps because I will always put my own spin on things based on what I have or my personal food restrictions.
How long cooking time should be. ( most of the time I don’t follow that rule either lol )
I normally slow down my cooking process rushed food isn’t always the most savory.
Vegetarian/ vegan Chili
3 Garlic Cloves
Chilli Powder , Paprika , Cumin ,Pink Sea Salt
White onion Green onions
Black Beans , Kidney Beans , Pinto Beans
Before starting chop all of your veggies and herbs it makes the process faster.
Using oil of your choice ( I used avocado oil ) lightly brown onions ( white onion ) and garlic I use both fresh garlic and minced garlic.
Mix in Bell Peppers & Green Onions.
Add in tomato paste and stir ( the texture will be a little thick )
Add Oregano followed by Cumin, Chili Powder & Smoked Paprika.
Add in all of your beans followed by your corn.
Stir in diced tomatoes
Add in veggie stock
regular soy or soy aminos ( here’s the one I use )
stir & cook
Some prefer to cook it on medium for 25 minutes I prefer mine a little low with a cook time of 45-50 minutes.
Ready to eat Add Avocado chucks to the top, The only thing that makes this dish non - vegan is I add cheese at on top when i’m done.
