Hello everyone, hope you have a wonderful weekend and nourish yourself with plenty of wholesome veggies! ๐Ÿค—

Today I made casserole for the weekend to try out my new enameled cast iron braiser. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Main ingredients:

1. I used instantpot to cook chopped carrots. Using the juice coming from carrots to mix with organic unsalted peanut butter and garlic to add in the dish.

2. Add varieties of bell peppers, sliced golden potatoes , carrots, ginger, dehydrate garlic and onions, nutritional yeast, herbs seasoning.

3. Coat the bottom of pan with olive oil. Baked in oven at 375F for 20 mins. The result is beautiful, everything cooked through and non-stick for the pan. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Itโ€™s perfect lunch/dinner with some fresh sliced tomatoes and a cup of tea. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

As always, be inspired, be joyful, take a picture and Enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜‹โค๏ธ

Awe thank you Debs very much! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™

Itโ€™s so delicious with peanut sauce which makes casserole taste so savory as my first time trying it out. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Yes, I love nutritional yeast in this type of baking which makes it so cheesy tasty and healthy too. ๐Ÿ˜

The braiser is a success and I canโ€™t stop looking at it, Caribbean blue ๐Ÿ˜‡

Hope you have a good night rest and a great Sunday coming up! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Wow Kainan, thatโ€™s great news you have been eating so many vegan dishes these days. ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ‘

Iโ€™m sure they are beneficial to your whole being. Plenty of wholesome meals, water, rest and meditation will get you through this semester and then winter break! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Well done Kainan! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ Okay once you are getting used to this. Try gluten free, eliminating diet and see how it helps you overall. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Looks very interesting with a lot of thought in it, I love the peanut satay sauce, I used to make it regularly. I made some quinoa this morning that I wanted to put into some fresh soya milk that I was going to get from our local market...but it hasn't stopped raining all night and morning.. โ˜น

Not to worry I will think of something for it ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thatโ€™s exactly the term for the sauce Happyman4, peanut satay sauce ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ Itโ€™s one of the most savory dipping sauce for many dishes we have in VN. We steam leafy veggies, make egg rolls to dip in that too. ๐Ÿ˜‹Thatโ€™s very healthy you cooked quinoa, did you make from scratch or precooked? Over here I just get a big bag of precooked quinoa, leave in the freezer and ready for anything.

Itโ€™s very interesting you have quinoa with soya milk, hmmm I sure will try it next. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

I remember shower rains happened very often there but raining all days and nights were very rare, climate must change dramatically to be like this. ๐Ÿค”

Iโ€™m sure you always are going to come up something delicious from your garden and kitchen cabinet. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

P.S. Iโ€™m soaking some cashew nuts now and will make gluten free vegan chocolate bars later on tonight ๐Ÿ˜

I made my own quinoa, I thought I would really enjoy the benefits of it in some of the nice freshly made soya milk, I think it will be perfect, specially with some of the other ingredients in it..or even just on its own..Not to worry, I will keep some in the fridge for tomorrow, and some I will mix in with the bulgur wheat pilfa I wanted to make today..๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Thatโ€™s awesome you homemade everything. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ I do miss a nice quinoa bulgur pilaf but I canโ€™t because of gluten problem. Iโ€™m looking forward to see your food if you decide to make and post it today. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

I normally like to have a cup a soup now in the mornings as it gives me a bit of a lift, more so the tea or coffee.. I just made a large cup of broccoli and cauliflower soup and added quite a lot of the quinoa into it..its is gorgeous ๐Ÿ˜..really delicious ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘I will have another one later, probably with the potatoe and leek..๐Ÿ˜

Look forward to seeing your vegan chocolate bars, they sound delicious ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Your quinoa broccoli and cauliflower sounds so delicious and lovely. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Iโ€™m waiting for whole food market to deliver my vegan cacao butter which is one important ingredient that Iโ€™m missing to make chocolate.

Iโ€™m toasting raw almonds now and everything will be ready to make later on. Itโ€™s only 7:30 pm around here so plenty of time to make some treat later on. ๐Ÿ˜

You enjoy your wholesome bowl of soup Happyman4! ๐Ÿ˜‡

I'm intrigued to try this peanut butter garlic sauce๐Ÿง. Sounds like a flavorful combination. Your casserole looks so good and it's full of nutrition. Enjoy your day๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™.

Thank you Zazen very much! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™

Itโ€™s such a good marinated sauce, nutty buttery with a hint of cheesy flavor of nutritional yeast. I enjoy the leftover today too. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Enjoy your Sunday! ๐Ÿ˜
