Dinner Time

For dinner tonight, Meg and I wanted to try some new recipes out. We made a tasty and easy-to-make recipe for veggie fried rice using the ingredient list from a rice and veggie burger from the book,  "How it All Vegan" by Sarah Kramer and Tanya Bernard. Meg really enjoyed this recipe, however, since I'm not that into garlic, I decided to make something different. Using a hummus recipe from  Alicia Silverstone's cookbook, "The Kind Diet", I made a hummus and veggie wrap on an Ezekiel tortilla. We also made some great sweet potato fries! 
Veggie Fried Rice:
2 cups cooked organic brown rice
1 medium carrot, diced
1/2 small onion, diced
1 medium stalk of celery, diced
1/4 cup zucchini 
1 clove of garlic 
1 Tbsp of tahini 
1 tsp of whole wheat flour 
1 Tbsp of olive oil 
Directions: saute the vegetables and garlic in the olive oil for five minutes then add the rest of the ingredients to the skillet until slightly browned. 

Cauliflower Hummus Wrap: 
3 TBSP of favorite hummus recipe 
1/4 of sliced cauliflower
1 medium carrot sliced
1/2 red bell pepper sliced 
a few slices of purple cabbage 
Directions: Fill the toasted ezekiel wrap with all of the ingredients then roll it all up!

Sweet Potato Fries: 
5 sweet potatoes, sliced into wedges
Directions: season wedges with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper
