What to Expect from Sister Vegetarian Recipes...

Sister Vegetarian knows the importance of nutrition without breaking the bank. In lieu of this, I keep the meals to a cost that anyone can create and still stick to a budget. I also include raw vegan meals. Sister has acquired a Raw Vegan Chef Certfication through The Raw Food Network-Ekaya Institute of Living Food Education. I love to cook meals from Africa, India, the Middle East, Greece, Italy, and the list goes on. When I cook, I call it traveling the world without leaving my home. I see cooking as a way to experiment and learn about other cultures, as I also learn more about my roots.

Enjoy the meals. Enjoy the travel. No Passport Required. Just an appetite for delicious and healthy meals.

Peace & Love, Sister Vegetarian.

Sweet Potato Vegan Tortilla Wrap

One of the meals that I made from my Saturday's trip to my local Farmer's Market (read Saturday's article here about $25 of produce for almost 2 weeks of produce) was a sweet potato tortilla. This recipe is from the Color Me Vegan cookbook by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. It was a quick recipe of 20 minute steamed 2 medium sweet potatoes, saute onions and sweet peppers, and seasonings of diced garlic and jalapeno pepper. I placed the sweet potato filling in a tortilla, rolled the tortilla, and topped it with vegan sour cream, salsa, and chopped turnip greens. I also served organic vegan blue tortilla chips on the side. I purchased my sweet potatoes, jalapeno peppers, and turnip greens from my Saturday farmer's market trip.

This is one of the best non-bean version tortilla or taco fillings I have ever tested! The recipe provided 3-4 servings.

Who says you can't eat vegan on a budget!
