Today’s topic for #PLANTPOWER is Meal for 2!
But I’m going to share with you a meal for 4..
(mamacakes, papacakes, & the boyfriend)
+ leftovers for 3 days for a very hungry powercakes
I introduce to you
Plant Power Pumpkin Alfredo
2 TB Coconut Oil
Small white onion
1 Container of white button mushrooms
2 tsp freshly grated ginger
(from the root – or powder if you don’t have fresh)
2 tsp of minced garlic
3 Cups of Spinach
1 bunch of chopped Kale
1 can of pumpkin (15oz)
3/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast
2 Cups of Unsweet Coconut Milk
1 Cup of Water
2 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
4 TB Coconut Aminos (or soy sauce of choice)
Dashes of Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
2 tsp of hemp seeds per serving – sprinkled at the end!
Heat 2 TB Coconut Oil on medium heat in a medium sized sauce pan.
Add garlic, mushrooms, onion, & ginger.
Sauté until cooked down – a few minutes.While that’s cooking….
Add in your spinach & kale to the sauté.
Cook together until kale/spinach cooks down.
(a few minutes)
Add in your liquids; 2 cups coconut milk + 1 cup water
Add in 3/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast
Add the 4 TB Coconut Aminos (or other option)
Stir together and let simmer on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes or so.
(It will get thicker the longer it sits)
Serve over pasta/raw zucchini noodles/anything you’d like!
Sprinkled each dish with about 2 tsp of Hemp Seeds for
some extra protein/healthy fat power!
Remember how I said leftover’s for 3 days?
The proof is in the not-so-professional pictures;
one day I will have a nice camera like everyone else
so you can see every nook & cranny of my food
*Served over leftover black bean pasta,
roasted veggies, tomatoes, & kalamata olives
with a sprinkle of Sea Kelp Seasoning!
Speaking of HEMP SEEDS –
Brad from Hippie Butter has offered to giveaway
1 bag of toasted Hemp Seeds
1 bag of raw Hemp Seeds
& 1 sample jar of Cacao Hippie Butter
That's 3 winners!!
Did you know that …
Hemp contains high levels of the recommended 3:1 ratio
of essential omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids?
which have been shown to reduce the risk of
cardiovascular disease, stroke, osteoporosis and diabetes.
Hemp seeds are also very protein-rich!
making for a perfect plant based protein source!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
