Here’s the next batch of 15 recipes. 60 recipes seems like a lot but I’m only 1/7 of the way to my goal…time to step it up.
46. Mutter Paneer
Source: Subbu’s Kitchen
Notes: I was inspired to make my favorite Indian dish after visiting an Indian grocery store and finding they had paneer cheese.
47. Broiled Citrus Salad
Source: Eat Pretty
Notes: This is part cookbook and part beauty guide. This is a great source for seasonal recipes and learning about plant sources for different vitamins and minerals.
48. Blood Orange Lavender Protein Shake
Notes: Two small blood oranges peeled, a tablespoon of lavender, two tablespoons of orange blossom water, hemp seeds for garnish, natural flavor protein powder (I used Plant Fusion) and filtered water.
49. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
Source: The Chunky Chef
Notes: I used applesauce instead of butter which is a great baking swap if you’re looking to reduce fat and calories.
50. Zucchini Hazelnut Salad
Notes: Seriously I can’t endorse this cookbook enough! The recipes are simple yet creative. I love it. I added hard boiled quail eggs for extra protein.
51. Salmon and Apple Farro
Source: Blue Apron
Notes: The farro with cooked apples was amazing. The salmon was a bit too rare and didn’t have a lot of flavor even with the addition of fresh rosemary.
52. Falafel Salad with Sweet Potatoes
Source: Blue Apron
Notes: This was great and easy to reproduce. It was falafels in pitas with salad, tzatziki sauce, and baked sweet potatoes slices.
53. Mint Spirulina Smoothie Bowl
Notes: I didn’t do the dried strawberries. Fresh fruit would have also worked with this.
54. Bird Nests
Notes: The recipe said this makes six nests but I had enough pasta to bake nine.
55. Roasted Pepper Salad
Notes: I added hemp seeds for some protein since I served this as a meal instead of a side.
56. Beet Soup with Pumpkin Seed Pesto
Source: French Market Cookbook
Notes: This cookbook is a great source for vegetarian French recipes.
57. Chicken Tikka Sandwich
Source: Upstairs Downstairs Cafe
Notes: I studied abroad in Ireland and was obsessed with this sandwich at the local cafe so decided to recreate it. I grilled chicken in tikka spices and served it on bread with red pepper, lettuce, cheddar, and vegan Mayo.
58. Aglio Olio e Peperoncino
Source: Audrey at Home
Notes: This cookbook is also a memoir by Audrey Hepburn’s youngest son and features recipes she loved.
59. Chocolate Cake
Source: Nellie Bellie
Notes: Even with buttering the pans the cake was very hard to remove.
60. Blackberry Sage Protein Shake
Notes: A scoop of Vanilla Protein (I used Vega One), half a cup of blackberries, 1 tsp of chia seeds and more for garnish, and four sage leaves blended with filtered water.
