Sweet Chili Tempeh

1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
1 tbsp tahini
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1 cup diced tempeh, or firm tofu

Combine sweet chili sauce, tahini paste, and soy sauce in a bowl. Then gently fold in tempeh or tofu. Toss to coat and bake on a for 10-15 minutes at 375 or until golden brown and slightly crispy.

Note: If using tofu, gently squeeze the excess water out before dicing. Learned this trick from Vegan Family TV. Check them out! I love them :) Ps. Their kids also have a channel, and it’s possibly the cutest thing ever. Check it out and tell them I sent you!

Oil-Free “Refried” Black Beans

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 heaping tbsp fresh salsa
1 tbsp taco seasoning

Blend until smooth. Serve warm in burritos, on baked potatoes, and a dip for veggies and tortilla chips, or as a high protein spread on sandwiches.

i went to Trader Joe's today

smileyhappyradio says:

Congratulations on becoming a vegan, and starting this great channel. I noticed you eat a lot of soy. Its best to avoid it if you can. Look up soy as an endocrine disruptor, and also that bpa thats in the plastic gladware you heat your dinners in. Heating plastic releases toxic chemicals from the plastic into your foods. Be healthy!

Kelly Martinez says:

This is how all grocery hauls should be :))))

Kneenoseka Ina says:

I just bought many of the things you suggested and I'm going to make the black bean spread. Thanks for all the awesome ideas!

Dejana McCalla says:

thank you so much for these videos i love them so much! I tried being vegan before and I only lasted about a week lol but your videos are helping me try again

kiwifruitkl says:

– Soft tofu is useful for warm soups. Douhua is made from very soft tofu, and it tastes super delicious.
– Firm tofu is useful for stir-frys and probably most solid foods.
– In China, there are so many different ways to eat soy. It's the Americans who just happen to know of only soy milk, tofu, and edamame. I think the soy byproducts are usually used in industrial processes in the USA.
– I wonder how coconut flour is supposed to work. Can it rise like wheat or rye flour?


Incredibly useful! Thank you so much!

Heather Lynn Newton says:

I love the idea of throwback by the bread in the freezer and just toasting it, but is that bread you showed gluten free and vegan? Having a hard time finding a bread that I actually will eat! Lol great video. Love these hauls! 💕

Debmun1215 says:

Your videos are great! I always learn something new from them. I just became a new subbie.

Holly Landowski says:

Oh my god this video is so great! I love seeing what you got from trader joes but also I love how u show pics and vids on how u use the items!!

Abby Van Buren says:

Yum! Thank you for sharing veganism. I would love if you checked out my latest vegan recipe video. Xo

Melissa G says:

Another great use for the broccoli slaw is to make like a creamy slaw, and I use veganaise, but I think thinned tahini would be great too for whole food diet, but I take the broccoli slaw, I add a bit of veganaise, spices, dried cranberries or cherries and slivered almonds…omg it is sooooo good!!! the crunch yum!

Denise Butler says:

I would totally buy your cookbook! Can you get on that? lol

Annalee Matilda says:

I loved this video so helpful!

Michelle R says:

New to your videos, just wanted to say I love the way you show how to use the purchases. And that bean recipe is def one I will be doing tonight. Thank you!

shelby swartz says:

Great video. Love your recipes. 💕💕💕

Katie Whitten says:

I def want to try that retried bean recipe!

Whole Foodie Beauty says:

OMG!!!!!!! I just made your caprese sandwich and it's literally the BEST sandwich I've ever made in my life since going vegan! I smashed the avocado with pink salt, pepper, nutritional yeast & a pinch of red pepper flakes. SO good!!!! 😍

Priscilla Higgins says:

I liked your video, and hope to see all of them. It sounds like your rushing though, but I understand if you are just wasn't sure. If you can include how much you spent that would be good, even just a flash of the receipt would be cool.

Christin Cavanaugh says:

Trader Joe's is so my hero!!! Love this store for so many reasons and I can't thank them enough for the help this week. I didn't have a lot of money and they actually helped me get what I needed with the little money I had.
