Yum, yum, veggies.
Microwave bakes for the win!
And nuts, always nuts. Remember these from my frozen banana bites recipe?
They're also very yummy on their own - albeit super spicy!
I love sauteed mixed veggies smothered in mustard with a veggie burger (this one is soy-based) and a dinner roll (unpictured).
I love beans, especially with frozen berries, some form of chocolate, caramel, and peanut paste (smooth nut butter + peanut flour + almond milk).
Excuse the plastic spoon, my kitchenware is all over the place right now, since I'm buying stuff piecewise (welcome to a budget).
Lots of cereal goes on and I can't say I'm complaining - yum, yum, yum!
But having my own kitchen also means experimenting! Living in the (expensive) Boston area means budgeting. Experimenting + Budgeting =
I cooked dried beans by myself for the first time! I made up a big batch and froze it, because preparing them that way (using the sort that I found at the grocery store) saves me 2/3 of the cost of beans if I continued buying them in cans and I eat a lot of beans.
Saving on the beans means that I have money left to buy some (not cheap) berries. Can you spot the cacao nibs and carob chips in there? So delicious!
I also love roasted cauliflower. I know it's not healthy to overcook/blacken your veggies, but they're just so much yummier that way (I know, I'm weird) so I do it anyway. Oops?
Served with frozen mixed berries, peanut paste, and caramel (can you see them in the back? I put them in the bowl first, so it's a bit tough).
This reminds me, I need to go grocery shopping...
