Vegan MoFo – Day 5!

Vegan MoFo – Day 5!
Today is day 5 of the Vegan Month of Food! I strayed from the daily themes for today’s post.
The theme was to cook from your favorite vegan cookbook. How do you choose just one??
I have so many vegan cookbooks, and new ones seem to be coming out each week.
​Plus I tend to use cookbooks as inspiration and not always follow the recipes. I like to learn about different techniques and flavor profiles. So, for today’s post, here is my favorite meal that I have made in the past week. It is bowl packed full of flavor and protein that I made for Steve as a celebration and recovery meal after his 20-mile race event around Mt. Saint Helens.
Isn’t it pretty?! Under all of the veggie goodness is brown rice. The veggies are roasted butternut squash, roasted zucchini, roasted carrots, roasted Brussels sprouts, and kale. I also sliced and cooked some of the new Beyond Meat Sweet Italian Sausage for extra protein (and because they taste incredible!). 

I topped it with a dijon sauce that pulled together using sunflower seeds, dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic powder, a little bit of olive oil, and water – it was so good over all of the veggies! And the sauce complemented the sausage (I was first afraid it was going to clash with the sweet Italian flavor) perfectly.  It was actually the second sauce I made that day. The first sauce, which was supposed to have been a miso gravy, didn’t turn out so well. But that is OK because it gave me a chance to make the delicious dijon sauce. I am still playing around with the exact measurements (because I never measure anything) and then I will share the recipe!
