Chickpea Curry Lettuce Wraps

Chickpea Curry Lettuce Wraps.  I love curry dishes.  Do you?  Last night I got the idea to do a chickpea curry.  I already have a pumpkin coconut curry on my blog.

Since I love chickpeas, I really wanted to include chickpeas in a curry dish.   That is how these healthy lettuce wraps were born.


Chickpea Curry Lettuce Wraps - My Whole Food Life


I decided to put my chickpea curry in lettuce wraps.  So I sent my husband to the store for romaine lettuce.  He came back with this red leaf lettuce you see pictured.

I think the red leaf lettuce worked fine, but I wanted to let you all know my original vision was a romaine lettuce wrap.

Honestly, I think this chickpea curry is great on it’s own, or in the lettuce wrap.  It’s a great way to get some turmeric in your diet too.  This dish is vegan and gluten free. I hope you enjoy it.

Miso Stir Fry with Cauliflower Rice

I know many of you avoid soy products, but I think it’s quite okay to include some fermented soy products in your diet.  Asian cultures have been eating them for years.  The real concern comes when you are already ingesting a large amount of soy found in processed foods.  As long as you avoid processed foods, a little soy will not be a big deal.  Since most soy products in this country are GMO, it is very important to look for soy products that have been non GMO verified.  This miso stir fry with cauliflower rice was both delicious and filling.  I added tofu to mine, but you could really use any protein you like in this dish.

This miso stir fry was created by my husband.  I came up with the idea, and he put it all together.  He is way better with the savory dishes than I am. I wanted to do cauliflower rice again because I loved it so much in this dish.  This miso stir fry may seem like it has a lot of steps, but you can make the tofu and cauliflower rice ahead of time.  That is what I did.

Smoky Sweet Potatoes and Avocado with Cauliflower Rice

I have been wanting to try out cauliflower rice for a long time.  For some reason, I thought it would be hard to make.  Boy was I wrong!  Making cauliflower rice is super easy. I first learned how to make it from Tasty Yummies.  She has a step by step tutorial.  This smoky sweet potatoes and avocado with rice is delicious and very filling for a grain free dish!  I have been venturing into grain free meals lately.  I already have a zucchini pasta with avocado pesto and a spaghetti squash with pesto on the blog.  I will be making this recipe again in the near future!

Sweet Potato, Avocado and Cauliflower Rice - My Whole Food Life

I cooked the rice and the sweet potatoes the day before.  So the following day I only had to quickly throw them together.  Cauliflower rice has the same mouth feel as rice.  I was really surprised how good it was!  You have to try it.

Easy Mushroom and Onion Quesadillas

We live in Texas, so there is no shortage to Tex Mex foods.  However, most of the restaurants are not healthy or vegan.  Ever since we made our dairy free cashew cheese sauce, we have been experimenting with different ways to use it.  First there was the vegan grilled cheese and then the vegan nachos.  Now vegan quesadillas.

Vegan Quesadillas - My Whole Food Life

I used Food for Life corn tortillas.  They are gluten free and non GMO.  They were perfect for this recipe.  I supposed you could also use homemade tortillas.  We all loved this recipe and it smells amazing when it’s cooking!  If you are not vegan, please feel free to add in whatever cheese you like instead of the cheese sauce. I am sure that would probably be okay as well.
