Naturally, when it came to recipe-gathering, I called my mom (a gluten-free vegan) and I hit up Pinterest. Boy did I score on some great food. After 3 weeks of new recipes, my husband and I were sold. Below are some of the things I have made over the weeks. A couple of the items are completely vegan while the others are "almost vegan". We decided that we would try to run through all of the food in our fridge instead of wasting and replacing.
Top-Left: Tofu & Veggie Enchiladas with Black Beans (GF, V if you use vegan cheese. If you want to make sure you it stays GF, make sure to check your corn tortillas. Not all are GF.)
Top Right: Slow Cooker Pinto Beans with Gluten-Free Cornbread (GF, Vegetarian: Corn bread calls for 2 eggs and milk. I used rice milk.)
This meal is so inexpensive! The whole dinner cost less than $10 dollars and it gave us 2 nights of leftovers.
Bottom Left: Vegan Rajas- served in corn tortillas (GF,V)
5 ingredients- poblanos, onion, Tofutti, salt, and corn tortillas. Email me for directions.
Middle: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Veggie Wrap (V)
I added tomatoes and subbed lima beans for soy beans.
Bottom Right: Vegetable and Cashew Curry with Basmati Rice (GF, V if you use soy yogurt on top)
