Vegan Picadillo with Yves

I just want to clarify something.. we are not vegan. We are not vegetarian either. What I want for me and my family is just to moderate as much as possible our animal consumption and help a little this planet. I would say that we are like 70/30.. 70% vegan and 30% animal products, and I think 29% is because the cheese lol!

I have been so FULL lately with the two kids, but I wanted to start cooking and experimenting again so I will share with you the recipes that I approved. In Mexico we have this dish called “picadillo” and it’s super easy to make it vegan if you add your favourite substitute for ground beef. I usually buy Yves, you can find it at Superstore or even Walmart. Happy cooking all!

Ingredients:

1 pack of Yves ground beef

1/2 onion cut in small pieces

1 potato ( cut in a small pieces)

3 carrots ( cut in small pieces)

1/2 cup of green beans

1/2 tbps of oregano

Salt, pepper and avocado oil.

For the blender mix:

4 tomatoes

1 chile chipotle ( optional, but highly recommended)

1/4 of onion

2 pieces of garlic

1 1/2 cup of water

1/4 teaspoon of cumin and salt.

Mix all the ingredients of the blender. In a pan add some avocado oil with the onions for around 3 minutes in a medium heat. Add the potato and carrots ( cut in a small cubes) for around 5 minutes before adding the “beef”. Cook for around 5 minutes. Add the green peas and the blender mix and let it cook for 15-20 minutes or until the veggies are cooked.
