Now that the holidays are over (I hope everyone had a good time) and things have settled down a little, I decided I wanted a simple, tasty, warm meal. Pot pie was the only logical answer, especially with a biscuit baked on top. Happy New Year everyone and may your year be full of good [vegan] food.
I had put off working on this recipe for a few months up until last week. Previously when I had made them, they had turned out dry, and flat, and although they were still pretty good, I wanted them to be perfect. Mother’s Day approached and while thinking about what to make my mom I had come up with an idea. She likes apples, and well you can’t have apples without caramel, right? [At least in my mind] .. so I got to work. I took my time, did the math and what I ended up with blew my vegan mind, it was exactly what I was looking for. Not only did they taste like an actual caramel apple, they were the fluffiest rolls I think I have ever eaten, vegan or not.
I am a huge fan of brownie in a mug, so I thought I’d expand a little. This makes a great, quick dessert that you don’t have to invest hardly any time into. Plus, mugs are fun to eat out of, so don’t blame me if you start eating out of a mug full time.
Like I have mentioned before, I get so sick of oatmeal. Even though I recently discovered an awesome and flavorful brand, I still get bored with it. I figured I would try and brew up some brown rice in my crock pot with a random apple I had lying around. It came together to form a super soft, fluffy satisfying breakfast dish. You can add anything else you’d like, too. I plan on adding some pecans and bananas next time. This brown rice is super nutritious, and it keeps you completely full until lunch time rolls around. I apologize for forgetting to take a picture, so you’ll just have to look at my cat’s instead :
I will be honest. I bought too much broccoli, I don’t know why I bought so much, but somehow I did. I had no idea what to do with it and I was tired of just eating it as a side dish. This is what happened, and I thought it was delicious and seriously filling. Hope you enjoy ~
