Another Meatless Monday: Green Diva Goddess Roasted Veggies

1 10

Green Diva Meg's Roasted Veggies, Chickpeas and Goddess Sauce

All my days are meatless now, but I thought I’d jump on the Meatless Monday thing since it is a really great idea. My husband is still a reluctant vegan, so I’m always in search of good transitional meals that satisfy his belly and taste buds. Yesterday, while perusing Pinterest (endless eye candy), I came across a great recipe for this Buddha Bowl, which I decided to adjust to meet my own taste, including my very own Green Diva Goddess Tahini Sauce.

And normally, I really don’t like chickpeas, but roasting them seemed like a novel idea, so I rambled with it.

Ingredients

1 head broccoli – chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 head cauliflower  – chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 can chickpeas (or equivalent in freshly cooked) – drained
1 clove garlic – crushed
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt & pepper – to taste (I added a little maple pepper – yum)

Tahini Sauce

4 tablespoons tahini
1 clove garlic – crushed (optional, but not in my opinion)
2 tablespoons favorite herbs (I used fresh parsley, cilantro & chives)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon tamari
1 – 2 teaspoons light miso paste
water as needed

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2. Wash, chop, drain and pat dry broccoli and cauliflower

3. Drain chickpeas and pat dry

4. Toss the broccoli and cauliflower in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil adding 1/2 of the crushed garlic and salt and pepper to taste – try to get everything coated evenly.

5. Spread out in a 9 x 11 glass baking dish or onto an edged cookie sheet.

6. Repeat 4 & 5 with the chickpeas and put them in their own baking dish.

7. Put everything in the oven for 15 minutes, and then mix up the chickpeas a bit and put them all back for another 10 – 15 minutes.

8. While everything is in the oven, make your Green Diva Goddess Tahini Sauce . . .

Cafeteria Man

“All across America, school food is undergoing a major transformation to help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic — but not without opposition and challenges. CAFETERIA MAN provides an inspiring, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring fresher, healthier food to the millions of kids in our nation’s schools. The film follows nationally-recognized chef Tony Geraci as he works to revamp school food programs that feed thousands of students in two big city districts — Baltimore and Memphis. Responding to the pleas of Baltimore students who were fed-up with terrible school lunches, Geraci was hired to replace pre-plated foods with tastier, more nutritious meals. But he didn’t stop there. To help students develop a better appreciation for healthier foods, he also established a model 33 acre teaching farm, brought in more locally sourced produce, and initiated student-designed meals. CAFETERIA MAN shows that it is possible to feed our nation’s students healthier, more nutritious meals, and provides inspiration and ideas to win the fight for better school food.

With appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, noted food author Michael Pollan, White House Chef Sam Kass. "

Overfed and Undernourished

“We live in a world with increasing levels of Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes and Obesity. Over 70% of foods we consume on a daily basis are processed, and according to the World Health Organization, if current trends continue one billion people will be obese by 2030.

With our fast paced lives, we have become reliant and connected to devices, TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones and disconnected with the natural world, and the people around us.

“Overfed & Undernourished” examines modern lifestyles and a global epidemic through one boy’s inspiring story to regain his health from the inside out. After heartache, Liam, weighing in at over 80kgs (176lbs) turns to his Aunty & Uncle for help, and embarks on a journey where we witness the highs and lows, a family unite for a common cause, and the promise of transforming his life forever.

With 25% of children and 74% of adults obese or overweight, Liam’s problem is not uncommon, but, as the film illustrates, the treatment is more readily attainable than most people think.

This ground breaking documentary is interspersed with interviews and advice from leading health and wellbeing experts from around the globe and provides us with simple solutions to improve the quality of our diet, lifestyle, and personal bonds, ultimately asking us the fundamental question – are we really nourishing ourselves?

Featuring: Joe Cross (Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead), Dr. John Demartini (The Secret), Dr. Anthony Gollé, Dr. Arne Rubinstein and Don Tolman."
