I just want to clarify something.. we are not vegan. We are not vegetarian either. What I want for me and my family is just to moderate as much as possible our animal consumption and help a little this planet. I would say that we are like 70/30.. 70% vegan and 30% animal products, and I think 29% is because the cheese lol!
I have been so FULL lately with the two kids, but I wanted to start cooking and experimenting again so I will share with you the recipes that I approved. In Mexico we have this dish called “picadillo” and it’s super easy to make it vegan if you add your favourite substitute for ground beef. I usually buy Yves, you can find it at Superstore or even Walmart. Happy cooking all!
1 pack of Yves ground beef
1/2 onion cut in small pieces
1 potato ( cut in a small pieces)
3 carrots ( cut in small pieces)
1/2 cup of green beans
1/2 tbps of oregano
Salt, pepper and avocado oil.
For the blender mix:
1 chile chipotle ( optional, but highly recommended)
1/4 of onion
2 pieces of garlic
1 1/2 cup of water
1/4 teaspoon of cumin and salt.
Mix all the ingredients of the blender. In a pan add some avocado oil with the onions for around 3 minutes in a medium heat. Add the potato and carrots ( cut in a small cubes) for around 5 minutes before adding the “beef”. Cook for around 5 minutes. Add the green peas and the blender mix and let it cook for 15-20 minutes or until the veggies are cooked.
