One such vlog is a young British couple, now living in Portugal with their infant daughter and spunky dog. 8 Miles form Home chronicles vegan couple Sasha and J, and they share often how they prepare meals on the fly, completely vegan, but what seems like relatively no fuss. Their pricey coffee and local pastry habit aside, their food consumption is thrifty with whole grains, hearty vegetables, and lots of legumes and beans. They also have some stand by's such as making "green juice" and roasting chick pea's with a little oil and chili peppers, both of which add a boost to their simple meals.
Now, while I did not give up sugar for lent, we do not need to eat a whole pan of bars in the next two days so cut in squares and wrapped, most will go into the freezer. I'm going to use some of roastred the chick peas with some rice for my lunch today. I forgot to snap pictures. This is from Hersheys.com. Yeah, mine looked just this nice. Fail on appearance but taste was good. Chocolate hides culinary sins.
I'm a navy bean fan. I've shared my navy bean soup recipe before.I once tried making baked beans from scratch, but not sure what I did wrong as the beans never fully got soft, and the sauce was moving to burnt. Perhaps I didn't soften the bean enough through pre-soaking. Advice? As I get more creative, or at least more "beany", I'll try and share my successes and failures.
