Vegan Portobello Holiday "Pot Roast" and Cherry Almond Quinoa Recipes

This post is sponsored by McCormick® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.



Normally, as a vegan family, for a holiday meal we have some type of pre-made vegan roast or a complicated recipe to make our own entree. This year I wanted to try something different with a simpler, whole foods plant based approach using portobello mushrooms for the main course and a savory quinoa dish as a side with the help of McCormick® Herbs and Spices, and inspired by recipes from the McCormick® Recipe page.

Vegan in Kindergarten - What Vegan Kids Need to Know for School



My son was a vegetarian since birth and right before Kindergarten I finally got him to go completely vegan. When my husband finally went plant based at home it made the switch much easier for the kids who were basically only eating animal products when their dad bought them  and gave the foods to them or let them buy or order food without asking. I was glad the kids and Hubs went vegan when they did because being vegan in Kindergarten was a challenge. It was much more than vegan kids lunches, but we have many of those too!

To make it easier for anyone who has a vegan child who is starting school or would like to start school or go back to school as a vegan, here's everything we learned about being vegan in school.

The Vegan Cheese Shoppe Macadamia Nut "Brie" and Vegan Grazing Board


This week we got to try the decadent and delicious Macadamia Nut "Brie" from The Vegan Cheese Shoppe, a beautiful 6 ingredient cheese made from fresh macadamia nuts in Hawaii. The founder, Erin Olivari, who like myself, as a pre-vegan, was a big fan of a fancy cheese. She set out to create a worthy vegan version. Her handcrafted plant based cheese can now be shipped directly to your door! We decided to make a big, fun, yummy, vegan cheese and grazing board with this amazing cheese.

Vegan Soy Wrapped Sushi with Kimchi


I've always been a fan of vegan sushi but my husband and one of my kids do not like seaweed or nori or anything "fishy" at all. I've been wanting to try soy wraps for sushi for some time and this week seemed like a good time to test them out with a sampling of the new Kimchi from Nasoya we received.  The sushi came out really delicious with these fun little colorful wraps we found, some fresh avocado, some roasted garden fresh zucchini and farm fresh carrots. We put the four different varieties of Nasoya Kimchi on the side for a spicy touch of flavor alongside our wraps.
