It’s been a while since a new recipe has been posted on Logical Harmony. I’m excited to get back into it! While I haven’t stopped spending time in the kitchen, the past few weeks have been very busy and I just haven’t been as creative in the kitchen. Then I realized that, if you are like me, having recipes for quick but healthy meals is really valuable. Because of this, I decided to start tracking what I was making at home and sharing them with you.
This veggie quinoa bowl with cheezy cashew sauce is one of my recent favorites. Roasted vegetables, fresh kale, and quinoa are always a great combination. They are easy to prepare and hold up well for eating as leftovers during the busy work week. This cheezy cashew sauce is creamy and adds a lot of depth to this bowl. It’s especially perfect for those days when I’m craving something more indulgent, but still want to stay on track with my eating habits.

Last summer, I got into making protein waffles. I tried several recipes but could not find one that was the right consistency. Most were too dense and too dry. So, I decided to take things in my own hands and try my hand at creating a vegan protein waffle using Perfect Fit protein. They turned out to be delicious!
What I like about Perfect Fit is that it is raw, gluten-free, and vegan. Because it uses brown rice protein, it actually also works really well for baking. More so than any other protein powder that I have tried. While I have made these waffles using other protein powders, they just turn out better with Perfect Fit. If you do not have Perfect Fit, try to find a brown rice protein powder for the best results.

Chimichurri sauce is a delicious green sauce made from various herbs.I first tried chimichurri sauce on roasted cauliflower and was immediately hooked. The blend of herbs is lovely and has many layers of flavor. Traditionally, this sauce is commonly found with meat dishes. But there is no reason that it cannot be a great sauce for any plant-based recipe, too! This recipe for a quinoa bowl mixes fresh kale, fresh tomatoes, and roasted vegetables with chimichurri sauce.
The Logical Harmony recipe for chimichurri sauce uses scallions, mint, cilantro, and parsley as the herbs. Traditionally chimichurri sauce also calls for oil but substituting avocado instead adds even more dimension to the flavors and gives you the extra nutrition benefits of avocado. This sauce traditionally uses vinegar, but I like to use fresh lemon juice instead for the extra vitamins provided there.

Lately, we have been on a spring roll kick. These spring rolls are fresh, easy to make, and delicious! Including the prep time, I would say that these spring rolls with peanut sauce take about 30 minutes to make. This makes them perfect for a quick and healthy meal. They are a fun alternative to salads and I love that I can mix and match for different flavors.
Suggested below are ingredients that we use a lot when making these spring rolls, but you can use any combination of fresh vegetables that you like.

When I first tried kelp noodles, I was surprised by them. They are clear noodles with a slightly crunchy texture and not a whole lot of flavor on their own. When you marinade them, kelp noodles do an amazing job of taking on the flavor of any vegetables and sauces they have been sitting with. These kelp noodles with peanut sauce are gingery, garlicky, and full of so much flavor! I love the mix of the creamy peanut sauce, the slight crunch of the kelp noodles, and the fresh vegetables.
Kelp noodles are rich in calcium, iron, and vitamin K. They are very low-calorie, gluten-free, and can be a great substitute for traditional pasta or just a fun new item to try. While they are delicious, kelp noodles are high in iodine and should not be consumed often because of their high sodium levels. Iodine can help keep your thyroid healthy and sea vegetables are a great way to include iodine in your diet.
