Plant Based – Week 3

It was kind of an off week for us, and I seriously forgot to take photos of half our meals because I was so hungry. I really don’t have much to say about our meals this week, it seemed to be a lot of re-peat/re-heat meals. I tried to focus on trying some different spaghetti/ other pasta type recipes.



Sunday: unknown

Roasted Chic pea Spaghetti

My version of this recipe from


Spaghetti Nests from leftover Chic pea spaghetti

The vegan version of my previously loved “spaghetti nest” recipe.

For dinner I tried another spaghetti (in trying to redeem my husbands dislike for the chic pea Bolognese)

Sautéed mushroom and onion with organic pasta sauce from Aldi and whole wheat angel hair pasta.


Vegan Sweet Potato Lasagna

Layers of cauliflower, broccoli, pepper mix, sweet potato, pasta sauce and lasagna noodles.


Red Pepper Tomato Rice Bowl


Sautéed mushroom, onions and red pepper, add rice and tomato sauce. fry until it burns slightly on the bottom for added flavor.

Mix Veg Stir fry: Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Corn, Mushrooms, Red Pepper



Miso Udon Soup



Dragon Fruit



I had been looking for a dragon fruit for about two weeks to show Caspian and do a taste test. He wasn’t a fan, but it was quite amusing, as after I had cut it up and put it into a small bowl, he took it all out and tried to fit it back in the waxy pink shell.

I froze the rest of it to use with smoothies, since I don’t like to eat it raw. Its hard to find new fruit to try, so if you have any suggestions please let me know.


Breakfast was some seasoned fingerling potatoes with organic ketchup. Dinner was a Mediterranean rice bowl, featuring onions, mushrooms, broccoli, red and green pepper, rice, with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

I’m starting to run out of ideas and I’m having difficulty finding recipes I think both of us will enjoy. Luckily I found a new blog/ website called the which has a slew of vegan style recipes to look through.
