Liebster Award + Quinoa Basil Stir Fry (under $7)

Previous post: 4 ingredient African Stew for under $8.  I hope you all check it out and try it.

I was awarded the Liebster Blog Award by Nuestracena-Vegan Cuisine  who is just too sweet.

"Liebster" in German means 'dearest' or 'beloved'.  In this case I think it means 'favorite'.

The rules of winning this award are as follows:
1. Show your thanks to those who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal 5 of your top picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Enjoy the love and support of some wonderful people on the www!

I get so much from all of your blogs and it's so nice to see the vegan love all around us.  Every blog is special but there are always those that stand out to each of us a bit more.  The following blogs do that for me.

happyveganface - Jessy always seems to bring a smile to my face when I read her blogs and with her comments too.  Along with her wonderful GF recipes.
VegSpinz - she always amazes me with her food art and original recipes
MELOMEALS: $3.33 A DAY - fresh, colorful, nutritious meals for under $3.33.
seitan is my motor - lots of beautiful and original baked goods

Thank you ladies!

Since my last post was a meal under $8 I thought I'd reshare the Quinoa Basil Tofu that cost's under $7 to make.  See vegan food doesn't have to cost much.
Have a great day!


  1. so awesome on the Liebster Blog Award, JoLynn - and i appreciate you passing it along to me, too. you are too awesome, my friend!

    by the way, your ghostly birthday cake looks amazing. i'm totally gonna have to show it to dan - it looks (and sounds) absolutely glorious! we still have a lot of basil from our container garden and some tofu in need of using up, so i'm totally gonna make your quinoa basil tofu super soon. i cannot wait! i love a delicious and inexpensive meal - they're the best.

    also, we've started incorporating more whole foods into julie's diet. lately we're decreasing her dry food just a bit and adding in basmati rice, cooked carrots, smashed sweet potatoes and/or pumpkin, broccoli (although i have to chop it up well for her), and kidney beans. she's such a happy pup and just a week's time we noticed her fur looking so much more shiny and her energy levels have increased. w00t!

  2. Thank you so much for the award! You made my day! :)

  3. Jessy!-So glad Julie is loving her addition of fresh food and is doing better with it. Ace doesn't like to eat his kibble without it and just stares at it until I add it in.
