Hello all! Do you have an instant pot Soose? If so I recommend making a big batch of lentils and also a big rice that you can portion in to smaller containers and freeze. Then they make an easy defrost and heat side dish for the family. I love my instant pot, you can cook winter squash in just minutes. And I have been making soups and other foods as well easy clean up too. When I get home I will share some of the recipes I made recently. When we got here I made a leek and potatoes soup, Also my vitamix has a soup button and I have used it to puree vegetables and it makes a hot soup in about 3 minutes of blending. I used this recipe:Potato Leek soup I substituted a product called better half for the half and half which is made with coconut cream and almond milk but you could make it with any nut milk and I als used vegetable broth instead of chicken. I did not garnish it with anything and it was good. I really like some ot the recipes in the Oh She Glows cookbook and you can find some online (Angela Liddon). You can look over her recipes here and see it any are easy ones recipes I see she also has a plant based app for the phone. I will have to look in to.
I am glad to see that you are back here again Soose! I am looking forward to going home but we are here until Saturday, Then home to get food for Christmas and wrap the gifts that came after I spent the day wrapping before we left. I ordered a lot of girl stuff for Poet when we heard she was coming to Christmas dinner. I am looking forward to a juice fast again at the first of the year for a couple of weeks and using the instant pot to cook some freezer friendly meals and soups during that time so I will be ready for an easy transition back to eating, using some of the IF techniques I have been learning about.
