What I do like to have in my freezer are single serve things. Things that I can grab on my way out the door when I don’t have time to put together a lunch for myself. Because a day without lunch is just not a good day.
For those busy days when you want that I slaved in the kitchen all day bowl of goodness but didn’t have all day to slave away in the kitchen.
Cashew and Cranberry Breakfast cookies – a grab and go breakfast. Make ahead. Freezer friendly. Vegan
These pretty little pastries are gluten-free and vegan. Sweet and rich cookie base with layers of almonds and coconut.
I really hate to add to your To-Do list for the weekend, but a batch of these muffins would be a good idea. They stash nicely in the freezer and given that they are fairly low in sugar they make a healthy addition for the kids lunch box. Or better yet, with a piece of fruit and slathered with nut butter they are a quick and compact little breakfast.
The trick to tender and flaky scones, even when they are vegan, is to not over mix the dough. Mix the dry ingredients together then add the honey (or your favourite liquid sweetener) and coconut oil. Mix well with your fingers to get a fine crumb. Yes, this is like making pastry.
This Blueberry Citrus loaf is a new addition to the must.make.all.the.time list. And while, yes there is a bit of sugar, I’ve seen worse. The bread gets a good amount of sweetness (and flavour) from the orange juice, blueberries and dried cranberries. It is low in fat, no saturated fat, completely vegan and uses whole wheat flour. I say this is a win-win.
So at the very last-minute, as I’m running out the door before the slue of games scheduled for the day, I threw this soup in the slow cooker. I call this a “what do I have on hand?” soup. Sometimes those are the best.
A hearty vegetarian lasagna stuffed full of sweet potatoes and portobellos mushrooms. The answer to your next family get together or pot-luck.
