Potato Tacos with Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce are a delight!  They are vegetarian as well as vegan, so they make the perfect meal for Meatless Monday (or any day of the week).  Plus, they are delicious!  And who doesn’t love tacos? The Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce is a wonderful condiment for these tacos.  It add a citrusy, tangy, flavor to the tacos.  You’ll have plenty of leftover sauce as well to enjoy later in the week on more tacos, rice, chicken, salad, etc. The recipe can be found here. Start by making the Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce.  Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend on high until smooth; jalapeno, cilantro, garlic cloves, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, avocado oil, vegan mayo, and salt.

I have a secret to share. Andrew and I both love fish but have never made it at home before. Can you believe it? Well, we were feeling ambitious last night and decided to try making grilled salmon. Turns out it was super simple to make! A friend recommended we use a grilling plank because it gives the fish great flavor so we bought Fire & Flavor Cedar Wood Grilling Planks. You can find these by the meat counter at Festival Foods. They are sold in a pack of 2 and you can use each one about 2-3 times before throwing away so you get a few meals out of them. They are perfect for cooking beef, pork, chicken, salmon, and other seafood so you aren’t limited to any one item. The tricky part is planning ahead. You need to soak the plank in water for about 1-2 hours before … Continue reading
