I have fallen in love with Matcha tea while I have been doing this vegan detox. What is Matcha? It’s a special green tea powder and the healthiest green tea on earth.
Why? Usually, you steep green tea only to drink the water and throw away the leaves that carry the most nutrients. When drinking Matcha powder you drink the water and the powdered green tea leaves.
I am 7 days into the vegan detox. I admit I have lost a little weight. Yes, I have felt like blah the first few days, but the last few days of this detox diet, I am actually feeling, wait for it energy!
Part of this diet I am doing, I can only drink green tea. So no I am not allowed coffee. Well, I can but has to be black.
I can not do black coffee. I am a flavored creamer type person. Flavored creamer has artificial flavor, so coffee is out.
It may sound funny, but I have natural energy. I actually do not need coffee for the get-up and go. Yes, the first few days it was coffee withdrawal, but now wow, I feel I really do not need coffee.

So I am tinkering in the kitchen with vegan dinner recipes. My sister gave me this balsamic basil dipping oil from Tastefully Simple. It got me thinking how I can use it in easy vegan recipes.

Truthfully if you do 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of balsamic, 1 teaspoon of basil whisked together, it is about the same as this dipping oil I used for this easy Vegan Lemon Garlic Angel Hair Pasta recipe.
