RECIPES:

Banana Bread:
3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
1 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp ground flax seed (optional)

Mash bananas, set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and flax. Add the bananas and oil and stir to make a batter. Pour into a loaf pan and bake at 400 F (200 C) for 40 mins, checking after 35. Mine took about 40. Insert a toothpick into the centre and remove it right away to test if it is done: if the toothpick comes out clean or with only a few crumbs, it is done. If it comes out covered in batter, it needs a few more minutes.

Lasagna:

White Sauce:
2 cans white beans
1 cup (more if needed) non dairy milk
1/3 cup pureed pumpkin
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste (make sure you taste it before adding to the lasagna to make sure it is salty enough/ flavoured how you like)

Tofu Ricotta:
1 1/2 cups crumbled medium/firm tofu
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste (make sure you taste it before adding to the lasagna to make sure it is salty enough/ flavoured how you like)

1 box oven-ready lasagna noodles (you won’t need them all)
1 cup mixed veggies such as greens, carrots, bell peppers (lightly cooked ahead of time)

Layer lasagna making sure the noodles have sauce on either side of each noodle layer so they cook properly. I layered mine like this: sauce, noodles, sauce, ricotta, veggies, sauce, noodles, sauce, ricotta, noodles, sauce, cheese. Seems like a lot of layers but you don’t want it too thin! And it shrinks down as it cooks. Cover with foil or a glass lid and bake at 375 F for 30 minutes. Then, uncover and bake for another 20. Let sit a few minutes before cutting and serving.

Black Bean Quinoa Chilli:
28 fl. oz. can diced tomatoes
15 fl. oz. tomato sauce
2 cups chopped veggies of your choice (peppers, onions, etc)
1 cup black beans
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup quinoa
1 1/2 cups veggie stock
3 tbsp chilli powder
1 tbsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Add everything to a large pot and stir to combine. Simmer on medium/low heat (watch to make sure it doesnt burn!) and stir occasionally. Simmer on low for 30 minutes until quinoa is cooked and chilli is thick.
