Quick Veggie Sauté with Crispy Tofu, Quinoa and Peanut Sauce

I'm so in love with veggie bowls that I think I probably have one every single day for lunch, which is why I love to mix up the flavors and components and have fun with the endless combinations you can make. For those of you who might be new to the concept of a veggie bowl (some people call them vegan bowls, others Buddha bowls), it's basically a plate filled with a nutrient dense and perfect combo of a plant based protein, some vegetables, often the green leafy kind, some whole grains, sometimes a starchy veg like sweet potatoes and a whole food fat source like nuts or seeds, avocados, guacamole, tahini, etc. It's basically a nutritional powerhouse in a bowl, a source of complete protein due to the different components, but mainly it's just amazingly delicious. Today I have an Asian version of a veggie bowl, and yes, you get to drizzle creamy peanut sauce all over it. So good!

Minha Cozinha, porridge and the magic of smoothies

It's that time of the week again! I have to tell you that I always have this little time together to look forward to on Mondays. It's so nice to sit down and recap, take a look at how and what I've been eating, and even remembering some of those incredible dishes I just seemed to put together but that should go on the "must make a video of this one" list. This week it was all about making recipes from the blog of a dear friend of mine, and we had the most amazing and stress free video shoot this weekend. I can't wait to show you what we filmed. Not only delicious dishes and recipes but new content for our Let's Chat section which is quickly becoming a member favorite! I feel like we're really getting in the groove of the video shoots and now they just go by effortlessly and are so much fun to make. Practice makes perfect as they say! We're nowhere near that, and I always find areas in which we can improve, but now it's relaxing enough that it's just plain fun. I can't wait to show you!

Today however it's all about the plant based goodies so let's get to them! I hope these inspire you for your meals this week, feel free to steal, adapt, tweak and make these your own.
