Saturday Sparks Link Party 362

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 362!

Starting off todays party with a back-to-basics breakfast bowl!

Apple Cranberry Oatmeal at Pieced Pastimes

You can't go wrong with a bowl of oatmeal to start your day.

It offers up some powerful antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

You will feel fuller longer after a bowl of this whole grain.

And if that's not enough, you can top it with anything your heart desires!

For this bowl, I started with steel cut oats that I cooked with water. Toppings include Fuji apple, walnuts, cranberries, almond butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

"Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food."

~ Hippocrates

Vegan Veggie Calzone

Calzone:  a pocket full of deliciousness that if need be, can be eaten on the run - what's not to like about that!

Vegan Veggie Calzone by Pieced Pastimes

I wanted to create a vegan version of this popular food and am very happy with the end results.

Vegan Veggie Calzone by Pieced Pastimes

Stir fried veggies, vegan cheese, sweet potato, black beans and simple herbs and spices fill each pocket for a hearty and delicious meal.

Vegan Veggie Calzone by Pieced Pastimes

I served this with a side of vegan sour cream, but found the calzone tasted delicious on it's own and really didn't need anything else.

Now, onto the recipe:

Vegan Veggie Calzone


Makes 4 Calzones
  • Pizza Dough - homemade or store bought
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1 cooked, cooled sweet potato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup vegan mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup vegan parmesan
  • 1 tbsp vegan parmesan - save for topping

Sauté onions and garlic in non-stick pan (adding a tablespoon or two of water as needed to keep from sticking) until they are nicely browned and caramelized. Add red peppers and mushrooms and cook until just soft. Add onion powder, basil, sweet potato, black beans and spinach and cook until spinach is just starting to wilt. Remove from heat. Preheat oven to 400°. Divide pizza dough into 4 even sections and roll out into 8"circles. Spoon veggie mix onto one side of each dough circle, keeping them away from the edge. Add vegan cheeses to top of veggies. Fold dough over and press edges together with a fork. Place the filled pockets onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Spritze with olive oil. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of vegan parmesan over the tops. Bake for 25 minutes or until nicely browned. Enjoy!

Saturday Sparks Link Party 361

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 361!

Starting off todays party with yet another smoothie bowl!

Chocolate Smoothie Bowl by Pieced Pastimes

They seem to be my breakfast of choice these days, which is a bit strange.

I normally save these for warmer seasons, but here we are blanketed in winter.

The sun lost to gray skies.

It seems these bowls are the sunshine I so crave.

Chocolate Smoothie Bowl made with bananas, spinach, almond milk, cacao powder, pure maple syrup and topped with banana, granola, shaved coconut, chia seeds and a drizzle of almond butter.

"It seems like everything sleeps in winter, but it's really a time of renewal and reflection."
