I Can Do It

Why do I doubt myself? I may not be able to do “fancy” dinners, but I can certainly put together a meal. I debated all weekend whether I should put together a weekly menu plan or not, but I knew if I didn’t I would ended up eating hummus, Manchego cheese and red/orange/yellow peppers. I think my skin was starting to look orange a bit 😉

This meal is not at the chef’s level of dinners, but it certainly works for me. Tonight I tried, new to me, BOCA vegan burgers. I have never had vegan patties before. I was really skeptical, but at the end I was really pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t the most colorful thing I have eaten, but it was full of flavor.

I first defrosted the patty, than toasted it for a minute, and than put it in the oven with the sweet potato fries for the last two minutes as they were baking on 400F – it was perfectly cooked!!! (yup that is sea salt, what can I say I was craving salty food tonight).
[source]I added a lot of toppings – arugula, green pepper, pepper jack cheese, roasted red pepper hummus and tomatoes. The sweet potato fries were just ok, kind of mushy. I wish I could bake them so they are crunchy! Any tips you wanna share with me…I am still learning.

I liked my vegan burger so much, I made a second one to take with me for lunch tomorrow…you can’t blame me –  it was delicious!!!

Q: What did you have for dinner tonight? Have you tried anything new lately?
