Healthy Vegan Fridays #146

It’s Friday… I’m in LOVE. I hope you’re wrapping up your week nicely and looking forward to a fun weekend! I am trying to balance the work life balance… managed to sneak in a couple of volunteer shifts this week even. Sadly I’ve been very sick. Caught some nasty bug right before starting my new job. Looks like I’ll have to let blogging backslide a little more 😉 Annnnd here’s a cute picture of a recent hike with my bestie. It took me several minutes of cajoling to get her to look at the camera only for her to look over at the last second to an approaching dog. *sigh*

Never heard of Healthy Vegan Fridays before? It’s an amazing weekly linkup for bloggers to share their delicious and healthy vegan food. This linkup is not restricted to recipes though – feel free to share your posts on exercise & fitness, plant-based health & wellness,  and/or vegan travel, restaurant and cookbook reviews.

Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry! You can come and see what others have shared and find some tasty food to try!

Let’s check out some of our favs from last week.

Simple Vegan Aloo Gobi Masala from Yumsome:

You had me at curry. And the super cute teal bowl haha. Fresh ginger root enhances the flavours of the potatoes and cauliflower. I love making traditional Indian food, but sometimes find the recipes a little daunting and I’m missing ingredients. This recipe solves the problem as I have everything on hand and can easily whip this up.

Sweet Tomato & Broccoli Rabe Baked Penne from Strength & Sunshine:

So pasta is easily the way to this girl’s heart. We make it at least once a week. We typically make the same way every week, so I really appreciate this recipe so I can try something different out. I love adding veggies to pasta and broccoli rabe is so good. The fresh herbs kick it up a notch too and I’m intrigued by the use of maple syrup!

Coconut Rough Chocolates from Bite-Sized Thoughts:

How cute is this chocolate bear??? I clearly need to expand my chocolate mould collection! These make me think of those old candy bars, Chocolate Mounds, but only healthier and tastier and cuter. Looking forward to making them (with cute new shapes!).

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Bars from Courtney’s Cookbook:

Despite not being gluten free herself, Courtney makes many delectable gluten free goodies. Which I appreciate! Simple ingredients with simple instructions – these bars come together in no time. I like the idea of making these ahead to have easy to-go snacks for busy days.

This week, Mary Ellen is sharing her Breakfast Tacos:

Well now, just when you thought breakfast couldn’t get any better! Two of my favourite things are combined in this yumtastic breakfast. And it sounds pretty quick to throw together, even for a weekday breaky. As much as I love a good smoothie, it just doesn’t always leave me satisfied, I need something more nutrient dense and filling. This is it!

And I’m sharing my Lemon Lavender Overnight Buckwheat:

You wanted the lemon recipes to keep coming, here they are! I’ve always really loved the combination of lemon & lavender. Sour tartness with light sweetness make a dynamo duo for this make ahead breakfast.

We’d love it if you link up and bring some friends to the party! We’ll be pinning and sharing your tasty treats on social media!

  1. Hi Kimmy,
    Happy Friday! I hope you feel better soon. I caught a little cold due to rainy season and temperature changes so I kind of know how you feel. Today I shared some fitness and food waste posts instead of a recipe. Thanks for hosting!

    1. Oh temperature changes are always so rough on the immune system. I think mine is from the stress of the new job. Hopefully we’ll both feel better soon. Thanks for sharing with us Deborah!
