Last night I made this ridiculously easy thing for dinner, so I thought I'd share. It's quick, easy, healthy, delicious, AND vegan! WOOT!! So much amazing all in one place!
Soba Noodle & Shitake Mushroom Bowl
1 tbsp coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
Buckwheat Soba Noodles (I used the pre-cooked kind in the refrigerated section. I love this stuff - you just heat it up for a minute in boiling water, and it's done! You can use uncooked too of course.)
Red or yellow onion (about 1/4 of a large one, sliced into strips)
3-4 cloves of garlic (minced)
6-7 medium-sized shitake mushrooms (sliced)
Braggs Liquid Amino Acids (OR Soy Sauce), about 1 tbsp
Hot sauce (optional), Syiracha is my favorite!
Cook the soba noodles according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a large pan on medium heat. Throw in the onions & garlic, and cook until slightly tender. Turn up the heat to medium high, and throw in the mushrooms. When they've slightly browned (about 2 minutes), turn off the heat, and splash with the Braggs or Soy Sauce (stir well).
Put the Soba noodles in a bowl, and top with desired amount of Hoisin sauce (I used about 1-2 tbsp). Mix thoroughly, then top with the veggies and hot sauce.
On another note, have I told you how much I love my Urban Decay glitter eyeliner? It's FANTASTIC. Not your boring old black-or-brown eyeliner. It GLITTERS!!! And it comes in all kinds of fun colors. No, I'm not getting paid in eyeliner for this. Although I should be....
Here's where you can find them! You can also find them at Sephora (my personal choice).
Today I wanted to spice up my usual makeup choices. Here's how I got this look:
After applying my usual concealer & powder, I used some of my lavender purple eyeshadow. Underneath I took a thin brush, and lightly tapped some white shimmer powder in the corner & bottom of my eye.
Then I took a reddish / pinkish lip liner, and lined my eyes. A lot of places don't sell these colors as eyeliners, but lipliners work fine! I like to use something in a similar color as a base to the glitter eyeliner, because they're slightly sheer, and this way they stand out more. Just be sure to not let the liner meet your eye - leave a little gap (this should be pretty easy to do).
Take a long lasting black eyeliner (well sharpened), and fill in the gap that you left with your reddish / pinkish liner (along the lashes).
Whip out your glitter liner, and paint it on top of the reddish / pinkish liner.
Put on your mascara, and you're done! Yay!
