Vegan Egg Roll in a Bowl

Who doesn’t love an egg roll?  I can never find egg roll wrappers that don’t contain egg so I made this Vegan Egg Roll in a Bowl. It tastes exactly like the filling found in those delectable egg rolls, but without the fried wrappers!  I know typically egg rolls have added meat, so I added the sliced portoblello mushrooms to provide a meaty texture in place of the meat.

If you want to add some extra protein to this stir fry, you can add toasted peanuts or cashews.  Quinoa may be another nice addition.

Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup

I had some cabbage I needed to use up, so I decided to make this Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup.  It was very easy and came out great!  The best part is it only calls for simple ingredients you probably already have on hand!  This healthy soup is made in the slow cooker so it can cook even when you leave the house!

The other day when I sent Marcus to the store to get some diced tomatoes, he accidentally bought tomato sauce.  This soup was the perfect use for that sauce.  Plus, the house smelled so good when this was cooking!

This soup recipe makes a ton, but it freezes great.  I like to freeze it in serving sized containers so I can just grab and defrost what I need.  If you wanted to bump up the protein in this recipe, I think adding chickpeas or white beans would be good.

Easy Cabbage Stir Fry

The other day, my husband Marcus, made a delicious meal using odds and ends from the fridge. Sometimes the best meals come out of using the leftovers!  This Easy Cabbage Stir Fry was a perfect example of that.  He posted a pic of the meal in my Facebook group, and a lot of people wanted the recipe.  So he made it again with measurements, so I could share it with you.  If you love cabbage, you will also like my Cabbage Salad and my Asian Slaw.

If you wanted to add more protein to this recipe, you can add baked tofu. To bake the tofu, I cut it into cubes and bake in the oven at 350.  It usually cooks in 30-35 minutes.

This recipe would also be great served over wild rice or quinoa.  This helps also stretch the meal out longer.

This dish was inspired by my Peanut Noodle Stir Fry.
