I started my week off right yesterday.

Super drinks on JL goes VeganJuice: carrots, celery, kale, garlic, lemon, ginger, apples; Souped-Up Ginger Tea; Smoothie: almond milk, coconut water, uncooked rolled oats, frozen cherries and frozen banana

I sipped on beverages throughout the morning while working and then escaped for a lunch-time yoga class. Ravenous when I returned home, I whipped up this salad.

Romaine and sauerkraut salad on JL goes Vegan

Romaine lettuce, sauerkraut, green pepper, sun dried tomatoes, chopped brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds and a (store-bought) olive oil and mango dressing. Topped off with a dash of Herbamere and fresh ground black pepper.

As I was slicing and dicing I decided to make a really quick soup to eat for dinner later. I opened the spice drawer and I was immediately drawn to the smell of cumin and cinnamon and grabbed both jars.  These two spices happen to be ingredients commonly used in garam masala; I really went for it and grabbed a jar of garam masala, too. Go big or go home, right?

I think you will love the simplicity of the preparation and the robustness of the flavor.  Enjoy!
