Azuki Salad  

Makes 3 1/2 to 4 cups, or about 12 side servings 

  • 1 cup quinoa  
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (1-2 lemons, juiced, depending on the size of the lemons)  
  • 1 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar  
  • 1/2 large yellow onion or 1 medium yellow onion  
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt  
  • 0-4 Tbsps extra-virgin olive oil   
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice  
  • 2 cups cooked azuki beans  
  • 1/2 cup shredded or finely chopped carrots  
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley  
  • 2 Tbsps sliced scallions  
  • ground pepper 

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Then get some foil, peel the yellow onion, wrap it in foil, and roast it until it softens up, for about 30 to 40 minutes. Then cook the quinoa to the specifications on the packaging. Then get the salt, lime juice, and apple cider vinegar, mix in your preferred amount of olive oil. This is for your salad dressing. 

Once your Onion is roasted, chop it up well, and add in the rest of your vegetables, and whatever will add more kick, mix it and you’ve got your salad!  

 

Classic Caesar Salad  

This is a staple for any Salad lover out there. This also happens to be the simplest. It is my personal favorite as far as salads are concerned. You only need a few ingredients for this as opposed to going to a fancy restaurant and paying 7 to 10 bucks for a decent salad on average.  

Ingredients 

  • Romaine Lettuce  
  • Parmesan cheese  
  • Caesar Marinade  
  • Croutons  
  • Grape Tomatoes  
  • Whatever else you want to throw in for flavor  

Now, just chop up the lettuce finely, and throw it into a large mixing bowl, if you have a wooden bowl, that’s perfect, I personally use a large plastic bowl for easy cleaning. Put a small dab of Caesar marinade in the bottom of the bowl, a little dab will do you(otherwise it is too intense) trust me. Toss thoroughly, and throw in tomatoes, a few croutons,put some cheese on it and you’re set!  

 

Vegetable Pizza

An alternative pizza recipe without the cholesterol and excess fat typically associated with enjoying this classic cuisine. This meal is an earth friendly, animal friendly alternative that anyone can make. Use whatever toppings you like and enjoy. 


Ingredients

  • 1 cup mushrooms, cut into quarters  
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 onion  
  • 1cup black olives  
  • 2 bulbs garlic  
  • ¼ cup basil leaves   
  • 1 cup broccoli florets  
  • 1 can Pillsbury Pizza Crust Dough (Dairy Free Crust)  
  • 16oz can pizza sauce  
  • Red pepper flakes / dried oregano

First, sauté mushroom, onion, and garlic with 1 tbsp olive oil, then sauté /steam broccoli florets to soften them up. Then you want to place the pizza dough evenly on a greased pizza pan. Once the dough is laid out, distribute the sauce, onion, garlic, and the rest of your toppings on the pizza and use seasonings last. Top with your choice of cheese. Spritz a little olive oil on the cheese to help with the melting process. Preheat your oven to 450 and cook for 15 minutes, more or less. You can experiment with the toppings however you want and make it your own.
