Ⓥizza Burger

Marinara was heated with Ⓥegan Crumbles and simmered. A Beyond Burger patty was tossed into a hot pan. After a few minutes, the patty was flipped once and doused with the Meatless Sauce.

And then topped with Daiya and Spinach. A toothpick was utilized to keep the slippery Daiya in place. Covered and infused:)

The Bun was lathered with Earth Balance ‘butter’ and panfried before spreading Meatless Sauce on the fried Bun. Combining with texture and exploding with flavor, this sandwich was quick, easy and fun.

Happy September and Taco Tuesday.

Easy. Earth Balance lathered bread was filled with Vegenaise and Daiya and grilled on both sides. I’ve found the best way to melt Daiya is to cover.

This sandwich includes a little more effort than a fast food joint and a little more expensive then their probably drive thru menu, but Who wants to kill themselves with fast food, anyways…. $1.53 per sandwich and maybe 15 minutes when melting the Daiya.

Mac N’ Fun

Surrounded by an exploding deadly virus and multiple wildfires, the current state of Arizona is close to being hell on Earth.

Comfort food is needed more than ever before. Today’s craving is Mac N’ Daiya!

0FBCEA3B-160E-4C7A-8DE1-456B78FA36D8_1_105_c

And leaving recipes alone is not in my vocabulary.  Let’s enhance normality. Let’s create character and texture:)

Veggies were lightly roasted before being lightly broiled. A new (to me) Ⓥegan Milk was utilized. Seasoned with Garlic powder, Sea Salt & Pepper, Smoky Tempeh was added to the little Milky mixture. The Mac was barely under cooked, drained and added to the mix with the Daiya ‘cheese’.

The roasted Veggies were added with a little more Ⓥ Milk. This hit the spot:):)
