Udon pesto with spinach and quinoa taboulli. Tasty #vegan

Spent the day remembering why I don’t like manual labor. It was really fun cause of our cut twice measure tomorrow while repairing the irrigation.

So I decided that a nice dinner with strong fragrances and flavor. Had some pesto froma few days ago and udon noodles cook up real nice in veggie broth. Throw some garlic in a bit of oil on medium heat for about 45 seconds then throw in the pesto and spinach and cook down for a minute on med high heat. Toss in the noodles and good night.

The taboulli is from vegan planet and is a little more work but not too tough. Cook up a cup of quinoa in 2 cups of boiling water and some salt. 20 minutes or so simmering till all the water us soaked up. While that’s going down mince a qaurter cup red onion and seed and chop two tomatos. Half a handful of cilantro and a bunch of parsley chopped. Toss everything into a large bowl with a can of adzuki beans. Mix one third a cup of olive oil with two tablespoons of lemon juice for the dressing. Be sure to season with salt and pepper and then mix with everything else.

Banana bread with all types of goodies like pecans, chocolate, and apricots #vegan

Deciding to bake stuff at the last moment seems to be my knack lately. Today was no different when I remembered I had been letting 3 bananas get extra ripe for banana bread. So naturally in my ADD existence it meant that at that time I had to make the Bread. Too bad I only has 40 minutes to make something that requires 50 minutes of baking… D’oh!

Anyway I figured the details would just work themselves out, and as usual they did. This time i just turned the oven off with 20 minutes left and when I got home a few hours later they were all tasty and yummy.

I changed up the recipe from the book a bit too cause I didnt have corn oil, went with olive. I also has dried apricots that I been meaning to use so I chopped em up and tossed em in.

Oh yeah and its all Vegan and stuff, so you can put that in your pipe and smoke it, or better yet just eat it cause its better that way.
