Cooking My Way Through My Beef With Meat: by E2X member, Sara

Today on the blog, E2X member, Sara walks through some of the recipes she has tried in My Beef With Meat!

When I received my copy of My Beef with Meat, I was excited to learn new information and make new recipes.  Everything looked so good, I wasn’t sure where to start.  So I decided that I would try them all and share my experiences.  So far everything has been delicious and I am looking forward to trying new things!

Bad 2 the Bone Chili:.  We had it with bbq kale and Happy Herbivore cornbread.  My husband needed extra spice and likes it with cayenne pepper.  I added some hot sauce.  Looking forward to having it for lunches this week!

Tzatziki Sauce.  My husband and I love felafel and I wasn’t sure how I was going to make the yogurt sauce, but now I can!  It was pretty easy to make.

And the left over sauce was great on salads all week!



Super Sushi Salad:   It was a nice change from sushi rolls.  Took awhile to prep ingredients.  Definitely wins for color!

Double the Summer Soba salad fun!  I made a double batch to bring to a picnic. We decided that it is best made fresh (and one of our favorite recipes).  We made the noodles the night before and they got a little crumbly.

Quinoa salad with black beans and corn.  We used regular quinoa because it was in the house.  It was terrific and a great meal after a long bike ride!

Thai slaw and Curried Rice from Everyday Happy Herbivore (made in pressure cooker)  They were great together!  And my husband made the dressing for the slaw and he said it was super easy.   We used a napa cabbage we got in our CSA.  The second time I made Thai Slaw, I didn’t have any peanut butter, so instead I used tahini in its place.  It was really good!  My husband said he actually liked it better that way!  And I skipped the cooking part.  I just mixed up the sauce and used it as is and I thought it worked very well!


Zeb’s waffles.  They are delicious.  I had to make sure I saved some for my husband.   Do not skimp on the orange zest, they make the waffle.  I used the zest from a small orange and then ate the orange with breakfast :)


Next, I made the Nottingham spread and carrot fries.  Both were very good.  I had to hold back from eating the whole tray of carrot fries!  I also wilted some greens I got in my CSA.

Black Bean and Sweet Potato quesadillas with Halle’s Guacamole.  They were delicious!

Sara M
My name is Sara and I have been living plant strong for a year and a half. My journey started with a New Year’s resolution to eat more veggies. At the same time, I was introduced to The China Study through the gym I had just joined (Monkey Bar Gym) and that led me to The Engine 2 Diet, Happy Herbivore, and The Starch Solution. I was hooked! My husband joined me about a year ago and we haven’t looked back!
