Last Night’s Supper and Today’s Happy Sprouts.

The Happy Herbivore Abroad’s Carolina Casserole interpreted by me. (I had no black eyed peas, so I used romano beans).

Last night I decided to try out another of the Happy Herbivore’s recipes (I have and use all but her newest book) and this one was a winner for sure. I would like to try this with kale in place of the collards (my mom and boyfriend both find collards a touch bitter) and perhaps a bit more tomato, as the cornbread topping sucked up a little more of the tomato sauce than I would have liked. However, this is still a really tasty dish, and was a snap to throw together. I’ll certainly be keeping this one handy and will post updates if I come up with any really awesome and exceptionally tasty ideas for this dish (I pull apart and rebuild recipes on a regular basis, so this recipe won’t survive without being tweaked to our household’s tastes).

My Happy Sprouts :)

My Happy Sprouts 🙂

I’m not sure what your grocery budget looks like, but mine is TINY. One of the ways that I help meet our nutritional needs is by sprouting. I LOVE kitcheny-stuff which is half cooking, half grade four science class and sprouting is indeed a bit of both.

Sprouts are terrific thrown in all sorts of things and it’s fun knowing that even in the coldest part of winter part of our meal was grown by me.


About couleewind

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
