HOW TO BE RAW VEGAN ON A BUDGET – 20 TIPS

Oh my gosh I have passed figs Wow being robbed vegan on a budget is definitely doable I have now been raw almost ten years and honestly I don’t make that much money so I’m gonna share some of my tips with you today and of course not everything is gonna be applicable to everybody but I’m sure if you stay through the video that you can find at least one takeaway tip for yourself look at your budget I know it sounds like cliche almost annoying advice to hear in the past I’ve looked into raw retreats and they’re like thousands of dollars and the response that I get from the people who are putting it on is like well what’s the cost of your health really cat and it’s almost a trick question because of course your health is priceless but we also have to be smart about our money and if getting in debt it’s gonna stress you in the long run like mental health is something you have to care about as well so of course I believe your health is priceless but I’m also not here to tell you to buy that $12 pint of blueberries because they’re healthy for you if you’re asking how much it costs to be raw you know very likely it will cost more than a processed diet so it might be worthwhile to reevaluate your expenses and see if there’s any reworking you can do when it comes to your spending really look at where your money is going and decide if it’s important to you make your staple foods cheap ones bananas are a great example buy in bulk in order to get case discounts and this is gonna work for fresh fruit it works for coconut water or juices anything that you want to buy in bulk you should be able to get the wholesale price for something like a 10 to 15% case discount at any grocery store don’t be shy to talk to the staff at grocery stores and farmers markets as well research your nearest wholesaler some of them even do delivery get creative I found a really good grocery store one time because I was talking to a restaurant owner about where he got his produce shop locally and in season because of its natural abundance in season fruit is likely going to be less expensive than something that’s been shipped in is it being shipped in right now [Music] and of course this also helps support your local farmers find aesthetically challenged fruit or veggies at your grocery store or farmers market sometimes they have a rack where it’s already marked down to scale fruit sometimes you can even just talk to them one-on-one and say hey this is kind of funky it’s probably headed for the trash but I’ll take it off your hands for you you just want to mark it down for me I did go over this in my other video and I’ll link that below don’t waste your coin there are quite a few on this topic so I’ll start with one which would be low calorie fruit something like out of season fresh raspberries for example those are gonna be so expensive I would consider them definitely as a luxury item and maybe use some more as like enhancements to your meals if you really want to go for that flavor so adding a few into your smoothie just to get that raspberry flavor or adding them as little toppings to your desserts instead of trying to make like a whole monomial out of them I’d say to think before you buy superfoods these can be quite pricy and not always worth it don’t waste your point on smoothies from restaurants I think once in a while it’s great to treat yourself but most of the time you’ll be able to make that same meal at home for a fraction of the price lastly don’t waste your money on the pre-cut prepackaged fruits and veggies in the like quick grab fridge sections of grocery stores I know it seems convenient but it’s just their way of squeezing dollars out of you while making use of their moldy fruit that’s what they do they’re cutting off the bad sections and it’s great I think as far as like sustainability and using all the parts of the fruit but they’re quite overpriced at the end of the day nobody’s getting a deal walking out a Whole Foods with like a little twelve dollar cup of watermelon and that touches on that low calorie point from the beginning is really understand how many calories you’re getting out of each dollar you’re spending watermelons on that note be prepared for outings if you know you’re someone who’s likely to get peckish so bring food with you or simply know where you can access cheap fruit while you’re out and if you’re asking what is cheap fruit like how if I’m getting a deal that’s a great question and I’m gonna encourage you to shop around there’s definitely a learning curve to this if you’re someone who’s new to buying fresh produce something I do and would definitely recommend with regard to shopping around is I keep a digital note on my phone and as I go to the different grocery stores and farmers markets in my neighborhood I have a list of my staple foods that I kind of always buy my favorite items and I will write the different costs for each store of course costs are gonna very subtly but I start to get an idea of trends of the cost of each fruit or vegetable how that changes throughout the year and how that differs from store to store in terms of like which ones are the more fancy grocery stores that are just charging work if they can and which ones are more like budget-friendly I’d also recommend exploring Asian markets if you have access my experience is that they have pretty good prices generally and a selection of exotic fruits that are hard to find anywhere else talk to other raw vegans and vegans especially the ones in your area you can do this in person or online like Instagram or 30 bananas a day pick their brain ask where they get their cheapest stuff the raw vegan and making community is amazing and I’ve had such a phenomenal time at every gathering that I’ve been to but I would never want anyone to get this idea that they have to blow the bank on an expensive raw vegan retreat just to maintain this lifestyle cuz that’s not the case of course you have the online community for support but there’s nothing better than in real life connection and there’s definitely budget-friendly ways to do that free options include pot Luck’s in your area or a lot of gatherings are free more like one-day events that are just hosted in a park or something as for longer-term events look into your volunteer options retreats need staff festivals needs that I’ve been to at least four festivals now and I have volunteer to every single one of them and of course it’s going to be a different experience because you’re working a lot of the time but it made it possible for me actually attend on the topic of travel think about how to factor your diet into your travel plans for example it’s gonna be tremendously cheaper to be a fruitarian in Thailand then it would be in Japan it’s gonna be cheaper to travel as a fruitarian in the tropics than it would be in Alaska in wintertime for example of course your diet is not here to rule your life but it’s something to take into consideration if it’s important to you and you’re on a budget as another option maybe consider combining whooping into your travel experience if that makes sense for you you know finding a farm you can stay on work on and eat from I do have a video on this topic and I’ll link that below as well there are a lot of guerilla farming that’s happening and just natural seed spreading that’s happening so there are wild plants that you can eat from foraging is gonna be location dependent and see them dependent but definitely consider it as an option the more and more that I learned about fruit and fruit trees the more as I’m driving around I can spy them in neighborhoods so get educated on what fruit trees look like you can also access different maps online I know when I was staying in California I just googled like fruit neighborhood map or something with these keywords and I was able to find so many fig trees in my area that were just public like on the side of the road that nobody else was accessing oh my gosh I have to pass to fig Wow so there are fruit maps available there’s also Craigslist some homeowners have fruit trees in their backyard that are really just a nuisance to them and they put ads like can somebody please come pick my oranges or have free oranges that may be also accessible on Facebook groups for your neighborhood you can also put an ad on Craigslist like will come pick your fruit if I can eat it I will soon be a full-on glowing orb as the Sun that’s right here Oh better so check out your map options Craigslist and heck I wouldn’t be surprised if there were even apps nowadays that facilitate foraging consider working or volunteering even a couple times a month at your local farmers market grocery store farm or co-op I say this because employees will often read the benefit of partial discounts or extra free food plus the networking opportunities of countless I know organic can be so expensive so maybe you can’t buy it right now and that’s okay and it doesn’t have to be all or nothing maybe you can just buy some and not others get educated if you’re sensitive on which produce is most susceptible to chemicals consider secondary options so of course fresh fruits and vegetables are gonna be ideal most of the time for a digestion and nutrition etc but there’s still some really great healthy secondary options that might be worth including cuz they’re a little easier on the budget most of the time in my mind this includes dried fruit and vege frozen fruit and vege fruit and veggie juice like bottled and maybe it’s even pasteurized and that’s okay with you you know we really have to find what works best for us and at the end of the day that’s gonna be healthy or no doubt and buying like soda bah minimize eating out I say this because restaurant meals will likely not fill up the stomach of a raw vegan if being honest and maybe there’s raw vegan gourmet on offer but I find that’s not worth it for me it ends up costing me my gut with too many refined and fatty ingredients I end up just healing you’ll grow your own simple things like herbs or scallion can be really expensive in the store and practically effortless to grow at home even something like kale does pretty well a lot of places because it’s so hard me so research in your area talk to your local farmers or research online you can figure it out shop online to find the best deals for particular items so your favorite superfoods powder is flavoring supplements even kitchen equipment using powders or supplements might be helpful for you from one person to the next we’re gonna have different deficiencies or lifestyle based need if you’re lacking in particular minerals for example it might require like a whole box of mixed greens to supplement you for that those boxes can be like six to nine dollars and if you have to have that every day that’s gonna add up as an alternative you could simply add a scoop of green powder to your movie so that way you get your nutrient requirements without breaking the bank learn how to prepare healthy satisfying raw vegan meals at home this was huge for me on my journey not only did it help save me money from going to restaurants but also helped me develop my relationship with my body and food and you too and that will find your personal way that become more efficient and cost effective with meal prep so to help you with this I have my four recipe books if you’re interested in low-fat raw vegan cuisine I like to focus on Whole Foods so there’s no processed ingredients like salt or oil nothing like now let’s show you or maple syrup or agave my priority still is on the texture and taste so you’ll be feeling really satisfied and if you want to go for all four books there’s a 15% off discount just so you know those are my 20 tips I hope you enjoyed watching this video and now it was helpful for you if you would like to support me and support the vegan message give it a blank i’m sending so much love your way and support on your raw vegan journey you can do it and thanks so much bearing with me as I shift it around to accommodate this son what do you think the world

Vegan Lasagna with Tofu Ricotta [Gluten-Free!] (◠‿◠✿)

Oh dear oh yeah hello everyone my name is Lisa and I’m gonna be speakin because I did and I’m vegan and today we’re going to be making vegan lasagna but it’s also gluten free because in case you didn’t know I am now gluten free I really love lasagna lasagna is delicious I like that it’s just kind of like a little block of like everything that you want in one kind of like section it’s not the most beautiful food but it’s definitely delicious I mean it’s like spaghetti casserole we will be using a tofu ricotta we’re also going to be making kind of like a meat sauce with it you don’t have to do that if you don’t want to I just kind of feel like it and it was really good when we did it last time I like kind of like a very bulky lasagna and we’re going to be using frozen spinach by the way the gluten-free noodles that we’ll be using are by King Giada brown rice pasta we made it for the last lasagna we made and it was actually really good it tasted exactly like normal pasta it’s great so I recommend this we got a pot a teeny bit of oil doo doo onions kind of keeps cooking away they look sweaty Phyllis nice nice and good got some browning happening caramelizing some from the some natural sugars of the onions I guess some garlic powder I know like it says garlic powder it’s granulated garlic both works I just found out this is what we have so you can use fresh garlic too I’m just being lazy so we got some pasta sauce this looks nice and browned and delicious we’re going to add in the pocket oh dear oh dear oh okay why is it so bubbly this is like a flashback to what happened I think in like my first video just going to jump in the rest of the past so I’m going to add half of this can Oh God so splashy and the best thing causes Lavanya is that it’s like a lot of food like if you don’t really like cooking that often you can make one of these as Anya’s and it can last you probably the entire week depending on how you learn in your house I think with Eddie and myself lasagna probably lasted like four or five meals probably and because it’s so like packed full of protein there’s like the ground around which we’ll be adding in a second and the tofu ricotta which will be making after this is done it’s just like it’s super filling and super delicious if you were to serve this to like an omnivore they probably wouldn’t realize that it’s vegan dispelling those vegan miss that vegan food isn’t satisfying so I’m going to use some ardena beefless ground the Eve’s ones I only use that one has gluten for you this one does not have gluten this is just PR soy baby I mean this is going to be a very soy heavy lasagna that’s just gonna be our protein of choice today if you so choose you can also add lentils into the sauce just on maybe about 1 cup of water to 1 cup of lentils in here and that’ll just cook up some lentils you’ll have a little extra protein in there and it won’t be sitting so I’m adding the whole bag [Music] special thanks goes out to Eddie Eddie did all the dishes and put away all the dishes and helped me set this all up because he is a partner who supports me daddy boo-boo because we’re baking this in the oven it doesn’t need to get like super super cooked through we just want to have it kind of amalgamated into the sauce and you know doing this thing we’re gonna turn off the heat we’re going to take this away some people don’t use this much lemon but I think that like a ricotta is like really cut tart I’m going to squeeze half juice lemon in there then we’re going to add some tahini now this tahini has suck so if you have like actual tahini that’s not this whatever this stuff is I mean I don’t know it’s not it’s not great this isn’t like the kind of delicious silky – key that you get from like middle-eastern stores I’m not gonna lie this is the white people pay me it’s not good sorry I only got it cuz it’s on sale this is about probably two tablespoon about a teaspoon of miso so I’m going to have it in there a quarter cup of nooch I’m going to eyeball it cuz I’m lazy and a little bit of garlic powder this is this garlic powder I’m just going to mix this all up so it looks kind of gross but have faith it is gonna work out you can add a little bit of oil too if you want to but I think that’s heaney already is quite oily enough that looks good to me I got I’d love to help you crumble a tofu because my Azima is not happy with you today so you got the tofu happening and we’re just going to crumble it up [Music] see admit yourself maybe like a quarter teaspoon not a time and because you guys know that I’m super sensitive to salt maybe you need a teaspoon and now taste as we go so I’m going to use some frozen chopped spinach so that’s one cup all bad is the disaster Alomar because I like a lot of spinach so I’m going to do like three cups I actually still come to the surface this is about for a total if you don’t like frozen spinach use something else you can use broccoli you can use kale you can use whatever the heck you want so I’m going to defrost them the microwave for about a minute or two my defrosted spinach just put that all in yeah and you have like a spinach ricotta kind of situation and you can put this inside of like phyllo pastry or like puff pastry – if you guys want to make like I don’t know phyllo cups spanakopita this will be a delicious filling for Senator PETA we’re going to start off with that passeth off before where I use what Eddie called a giant spoon because apparently the spoon of too big it’s a normal system to use the cheezer’s spoons I know what is with the guys in my life who like to have tiny students ate with weird you’re weird so just spread a little bit of sauce on the bottom just to give it a little little some song to work with you don’t do what I did I left this pasta just kind of chillin all clumped up together on the side for an extended period of time and as a result it is well clumpy so don’t do that so this might not be the most beautiful lasagna you’ve ever seen but I’m just keeping it real in the channel mistakes were made so we’re going to grab the ground round soft pasta sauce that we had before [Music] we’re gone a little bit of cheese make sure you get the edges so that you’re lose money doesn’t dry out was speaking you’re going to cover it with aluminum foil and bake for about half an hour and then they can’t uncovered for 10 minutes hello I’m back I changed my shirt because in case you didn’t notice there are a bunch of stains all over from the explosion that happened in the pot so now we’re going to get all up in here the battery on that camera died so no more above food porn kind of this is back to the one camera setup all right let’s cut me a slice an try and leave like this side intact so that I can take a picture which mark I feel like cold lasagna is like much easier to photograph we’ll see so when I go there let’s see if I can do this separate the side got a prep it oh god this is oh wow that butt went a lot better than I expected look how delicious it looks holy man this is beanie and like look at the noodle and looks just like gluten e noodles follow that’s hot I just burned part of my tongue but it’s delicious hmm I love lasagna this brings me back to like being 14 and I was just like living with my mom and we didn’t really my mom wasn’t home a lot because she was working because you know single-parent life so I ate a lot of like that box lasagna from like the grocery store and I would cook that up and that would be my dinner and well my mom came home so this tastes exactly like that you got like some cheesy action some spinach delicious pasta sauce noodles a tiny bit of cheese it tastes like my childhood which is weird because this is not Vietnamese food so if you want the recipe you can click over here or down here the link will be in both places on live eat vegan calm which is my website my blog which I’ve been doing for six years now wow that’s a long time I hope you guys enjoyed this recipe I know I’m a little all over the place and it’s been a while since I’ve done this kind of face to face video with being and stuff and I’ve got like a lot of life guy I’m just all over the place so yeah I hope you guys make this and if you did I hope you post pictures of it and share it on Instagram or snapchat or Twitter there’s lots of things you can customize about this instead of the ground round you can use quinoa you can use lentils you can use green lentils red lentils you can use beans if you want to I feel like beans would be a little weird in Livonia but if you guys just straight-up PvP and just season it like you would season like beef I have a recipe for like a vegan beef stew on my blog if you want to check it out and I have some flavorings that make it taste Curtis beefy if you want to try that I hope you guys enjoyed this video if you did give it a like comment down below what are your favorite kind of things you like to put in lasagne I hope you guys try this out and subscribe for more videos like this I’m really glad that a lot of you guys stuck around for especially after my video from Saturday about veganism and privilege the video was with Emily from this Russell’s vegan life and it was awesome because I got to hang out with them and we eat delicious foods I know a lot of people don’t really like to talk about that kind of stuff just cuz like they just want to focus on recipes and don’t really worry about like the politics or like the kind of tougher subjects but as vegan advocates I think it is really important that we address privilege because there are some people that just don’t have the privilege in order to be vegan I’m sure veganism is very affordable but there are more aspects to privilege then affluence if you guys haven’t watched that video yet click over there go take a look thank you guys so much for watching and I hope you guys have a delicious day bye

What I Eat in a Day | Vegan & Gluten-Free

Good morning everyone. I just flew back to Berlin yesterday, I was in Sicily for the weekend, I just went grocery shopping and I’m gonna have breakfast so today I’m going to show you what I eat in a day at the moment try this melon watermelon season is over now but I’m still able to find balance and I’m pretty sure I’m able to find them all year round I really love them to start my day with I think they’re so hydrating and so delicious and as some of you know I don’t have a blender at the moment here in Berlin I will get one very soon so until then I am just eating fruits like this and the winter I’ll probably be making more smoothies but right now I don’t have a blender so I buy fruits that I actually enjoy just eating by themselves I pack this from home yesterday before leaving Switzerland there’s a passion fruit a pineapple and to face from my garden so it’s like 3 p.m. right now mmm this is like a snack mmm afternoon snack because I had a light breakfast and as later I’ll make dinner this pineapple is really good and with the pineapple and passion fruit and figs I’m also gonna have some great I’m actually gonna leave now in a bit I’m just gonna eat some grapes before going and then I’ll like see you guys when I’m back hmm tonight I made spaghetti and I haven’t had spaghetti in a while for the sauce I used garlic red onions fresh tomatoes I added basil and oregano and then I added some eggplant some mushrooms and some tomato sauce and then finally I added nutritional yeast and black pepper and I’m eating all of that on a bed of spinach right now this is really good this is super easy to make and it’s gluten free and it’s vegan so that’s it for today that’s everything that I eat I don’t know how much pasta I’m gonna have I’m definitely gonna have this bowl and maybe some more after yeah I think that’s it so thank you guys so much for watching this video I really hope it was helpful or or maybe gave the ideas of meals that you could prepare at home.

Vegan Gluten-Free Flatbread // oil-free and hclf

Oh my goodness whoever’s day we’ve had in months okay so anyways today’s recipe is kind of like a remake of a recipe did so long ago it was my brown rice flour tortillas that is actually my probably my most viewed video is that brown rice tortilla video and I’ve had some people commenting they have issues with it some people have said they have made it they like it but I have more people commenting like what can I substitute for potato starch and all these sorts of questions so I finally redone it with easier to find ingredients and it’s actually like a million times better just easier to roll out butter texture softer just all in all together butter only took me a year to do it so this is the new version the magic ingredient is basically two potato puree or potato goo or whatever you want to call it boil potatoes and water in the blender kind of makes this really weird sticky paste it would be terrible if you’re trying to make mashed potatoes but for this it’s a really great substitute for good because have that same star J stickiness to it it’s not the easy thing to clean onto your blender I will tell you that but just like let it soak it will work a few things that are important to note with this recipe one is that you want to cook them on fairly high heat and quickly so I use like probably like out of ten my burner is on about seven or eight and they only take about a minute per side to get like the bubbles and then they do a little bit of a brown spots on the side you cook them low and slow they’re just going to be really dry and not flexible at all they’re also the most flexible rafi cook them so when they’re fresh and if you stack them up the ones the middle kind of get like this steamed around they kind of like I don’t know stay really soft in the middle and that’s when they’ll be the most flexible if you want to reheat them all like I show you in the video there’s two couple of ways you can do it you can cuz I was just keeping them in the fridge after you make them and to reheat them you can either cover them in a wet paper towel and microwave them so they’ll stop they’ll be soft again and but not as Neversoft as when you first make them or you can put them in a toaster and actually toast it and you get like kind of like a crispy pita chip sort of texture this is not one of the recipes where you can leave out the tapioca starch or substitute something else it’s a really sticky gluten-free flour with a lot of binding power and it’s very necessary in this recipe another thing I want to mention is that when you boil your potatoes make sure you put a lid on them because you want to keep the water in because you’re going to use that starch and water to blend them with and the amount of water you have to add a little bit more water after they cook for blending you want it the consistency to look a lot like the one that I show in the video but that might vary depending on how big your potatoes are and how much water evaporates when you’re cooking them so that’ll be something you buy through just a little bit they’re super easy to roll out though they taste really good they’re really pretty soft I don’t roll them too thin again they’ll just kind of get dry and crispy you want to give them a little bit thicker what else so I hope the test tube works in your kitchen I’ve made it probably six times in the past two weeks just trying to get it just right and I love them I absolutely love them I haven’t made flat beds with it I’ve made rafts with them I’ve just torn about that eating them because they’re just so good and I think that’s everything I wanted to tell you so to the recipe you

Easy Vegan Meal Prep (Healthy + Gluten Free)

Hey everyone its Caitlin and welcome to another video in this video I’m going to show you some easy recipes that would be a perfect for meal prep for the school or work week we’re going to be making some golden milk chia seed pudding for breakfast some tasty beans and rice for lunch and last but certainly not least some sheet pan fajitas for dinner with chipotle lime tofu before we get into these recipes I am legally obligated to inform you that this video is sponsored by thrive market as you guys know I team up with thrive on a monthly basis to bring you all these awesome recipe videos and if you live in the US and haven’t checked out the rice market yet what are you waiting for but you can click the link in the description of this video to get $60 worth of organic grocery credits plus a free trial plus free shipping so you know a very good deal I’m sorry guys I don’t really know what’s coming out of my mouth today I think I had too much caffeine or something but anyways let’s just get into the video so first we’re going to make some golden milk chia seed pudding this recipe is so easy and it is perfect for meal prep so to start out you’re just going to add some chia seeds to a bowl I’m using some white chia seeds because it makes the pudding look prettier TBH but you can use black ones to thrive market cells both then we’re going to add in some turmeric cinnamon ginger cardamom cayenne and black pepper you can’t taste this but it helps with the absorption of curcumin in turmeric which is healthy and they were also adding a pinch of salt then we’re going to add some plant-based milk I am using some coconut milk I got this one on 5 market and I like how it is unsweetened because I prefer to just sweeten my breakfast with fruit but on that note if you do want to make this sweeter you can also add in a few tablespoons of the maple syrup I’m also adding in some vanilla extract then you’re just going to whisk everything together until all the spices are well incorporated and you don’t get any clumps of anything then you’re going to let this sit for about 5 to 10 minutes and then just whisk it one more time because sometimes you get these really big clumps of hard chia seeds and it just helps everything to be more evenly incorporated so then you can plop this chia seed pudding into some mason jars or Tupperware for an easy breakfast and then before serving you can top it with fresh fruit like some blueberries as well as whatever else you want I used some coconut and pumpkin seeds but like I said the world is your oyster that’s not very vegan but you know do what you want with your toppings but anyways I love this breakfast it’s so warming and cozy and it keeps me full until lunch speaking of lunch we’re going to be making some instant pot rice and beans and this actually only requires five ingredients but tastes so good so first you’re going to add your dried beans to your instant pot I’m using some red kidney beans from thrive market I like buying dry beans because it’s more cost effective but you can use any beans that you want in terms of variety then we’re just going to add in some vegetable broth some rice and then some water just to top everything off and make sure there’s enough liquid in the instant pot then we’re just going to give that a good stir to make sure the rice and beans are evenly distributed throughout the liquid then we’re going to be adding in some chopped cilantro I chopped my cilantro stems for the most part because they still have flavor and are going to like sort of dissolve into this and you won’t get big bites of them and then you could save the leaves for a garnish or something else then we’re also going to add in a little bit of salsa and this combination it just makes the flavors amazing ooh and I also wanted to note that this is the vegetable broth I use I actually buy it on thrive market and it is a paste and I like it because you get 38 cups out of this container and it’s super convenient to use rather than buying those cartons of vegetable broth over and over again so just going into it set your instant pot to ceiling and then it cook this for around 25 or so minutes then afterwards you’re going to let it naturally release for 10 minutes then release the pressure and then just give everything a good stir and Europeans and rice are done this meal doesn’t look the prettiest but I promise guys the flavors in it are so good so if I was taking us on the go for meal prep I would probably serve it with some of those fresh cilantro leaves and some avocado as well and you can also add any other snacks that you want from lunch so there for dinner we’re going to making some sheet heeda’s which a poll a lime tofu I saw someone post sheet pan fajitas with chicken once and I was like oh my gosh that’s genius I need to do it so for our veggies we’re going to start out with some portobello mushrooms I’m just cleaning them with a cloth and then slicing them into big chunks and to season our portobello mushrooms we’re going to add some tamari and some chili powder just mix that all up and then add it to a greased or lined baking pan I’m using a reusable silicone mat I can link it in the description below next up we’re going to chop our onions for our fajitas so I kept them pretty big because I like how they give texture to the fajitas and for these I’m just adding some black pepper and some sea salt mix it up again and then put that on the train next to the mushrooms then we’re using some bell peppers you can use any colors you want but I used red orange and yellow for the Instagram because you know it looks prettier so then after you chop all of those up you’re going to add them to a bowl and also wanted to note that I get all of my spices from a thrive market I like to purchase organic spices because non-organic spices are often irradiated with heat which takes a nutritional value away from the spices and some cheaper spices also have fillers or other gross things in them so that’s why I buy organic but anyways here we’re using chili powder cumin cayenne and salt then you can place this on the tray and last but not least we have our tofu I pressed my tofu and then cut it into these rectangular sort of cubes I wanted them to be a little bit thicker for these fajitas so they had a nice bite to them and to season our tofu first we’re going to add the juice of one lime then we’re going to add some nutritional yeast so much Chipotle powder and some salt and just mix that up until all the tofu pieces are pretty evenly covered in this cheesy delicious Chipotle a mixture and then we’re going to plop them onto the tray with the rest of our veggies that we’re going to bake these in the oven for 30 minutes but after 15 minutes we’re going to take them out of the oven and flip the veggies and the tofu and then pop it back in the oven for another 15 minutes and this is what they look like when they come out also I didn’t include it in the video but I do want to say that this recipe makes 2 trays worth of oh geez I also toasted up some tortillas to serve with my fajitas you could also serve them with some rice on the side if you want a little bit of a heart of your meal but that is pretty much it they store really easily for meal prep and then when you’re ready you can just assemble your tacos eat however many you want and then I topped mine here with some salsa and some fresh cilantro plus some lime as well also for the record I used to work at a tex-mex restaurant and I think these behaves were better than the ones we sold and that is it for the recipe portion of this video let me know in the comments below which recipe was your favorite and which one you went to try out first also let me know if you like these
