"This above all; to thine own self be true." -William Shakespeare
Easier said than done, for sure. The holidays are here and I have made the decision to pass on anything not vegan. I have already been approached by well-meaning folks "just try one - it won't hurt anything." What they don't understand is that once I have one all bets are off. I haven't figured out what triggers overdoing sweets so while I figure it out please respect my 'no' if you hear one. I personally don't need anyone to tell me what to do when I have already made my decision. I don't need to be challenged, questioned, coerced, prodded, or criticized by anyone. Just sayin'.
I recently had the pleasure of someone cooking for ME! What a great and what a wonderful treat and vegan besides! Thank you, Teresa, for such a special birthday treat for our dear friend, Cal, and thank you for the recipe.
You can eat this just as it is or you can have a little fun. Teresa sent some leftovers home with me and I heated it up, added a diced avocado, a squeeze of fresh lime, a sprinkling of fresh cilantro and a few crushed corn chips. Yummy!!!
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
3 celery stalks, cut into large chunks
1 medium carrots, cut into large chunks
1 large onion, cut into large chunks
3¼ cups white beans
6 cups veggie stock
4 cups kale, torn into small pieces
1 bay leaf
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano

Clean and simple eating is my goal. I love to cook and enjoy trying new recipes. All recipes included cover several diet types...raw vegan, vegan, vegetarian, low carb, and ketogenic. I have tried to remember to tag the recipes appropriately, but it is what it is.
