This meal is probably one of my favorite lunch or early dinner options because it is quite filling, and it will give you lots of energy for the day. I find if I have these nuggets at lunch, and a small snack in the middle of the afternoon, then I can practice yoga right after work without getting a "hunger meditation." 


Nugget Ingredients: 

  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup cooked lentils
  • 1 cup cooked pinto beans
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro 
  • 1/2 cup flax meal
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup olive oil 
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • Salt to taste

*Mash in a bowl, shape into nugget and pan fry with olive oil until brown. 


Potatoes Wedges: 

  • Slice potatoes length wise 
  • Pan fried with olive oil
  • Topped with salt and lemon

Lemon Dijon Sauce Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 avocado
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon 
  • 1 Table spoon mustard seed
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Water as needed
     

*Put in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.


Tips: 

  • These nuggets are also great on top of salads 
  • To store cooked nuggets. if you need to stack them, put a layer or parchment paper or wax paper in between 
  • Potato wedges - if you want them to be crispier and cook faster, then cut thinly 
  • For the dressing, invest in a jar spatula as this dressing is a bit thicker, and it gets stuck in the blades

More About Me and Sattva Recipes: 

What I have learned from the Sattva practice is to always reflect and ask "Why?" In February 2017, I moved from deep freeze Alberta winter to eternal summer in the Caribbean. At first, it felt amazing!! And then my body was like "wow, we're staying?". It was a bit of a shock to the system. My skin broke out, I had a tough time sleeping and my throat felt dry and scratchy. So, I decided to listen to my body and do a bit of a reset on my system by cleansing. I am very thankful for the support of  the Sattva Online community, as it has kept me grounded to my practice. My hope is to share my journey and creations with you and be a resource of information. What I have to offer is just a simple base of ingredients and directions . So remember to tune into your own taste and, texture preferences and be creative.
