Most of the time, something truly artery clogging usually murderous involving animals is excuse and motivation for my blog clogging Vegan food ideas. Meat is murder. Cheese and dairy is animal torture. I recently made Vegan Spaghetti Carbonara.
Yesterday, I enjoyed something called Jesus Toast. I rode through wet and super soft mud/gravel to get to this toast. Only to later realize this Jesus Toast was created by a SIUC Saluki alum. And this Jesus Toast is not your traditional food. Food to me, but a craft beer from Hailstorm Brewing Company out of Tinley Park, IL. The beer is a black rye IPA and very decent. The name is unique and entertaining alone. Made from a Saluki alum is a cherry on top. I also enjoyed an Alabama Hot Tub by Hailstorm.
Saturday, I rode my heart out along a multi-surfaced Gran Fondo of 100+ KMs. I set a most ascent record with my Garmin Edge 1000 with an ascent of 592 meters aka just short of 2,000 feet. It was an asskicker.
Spaghetti Carbonara ingredients:
- Spaghetti, whole wheat & cooked not rinsed
- Onion, diced
- Garlic, freshly minced
- Mushroom, sliced
- ‘Milk’, rice, soy or cashew non-dairy
- Egg replacer
- Pepper, coarse
- Tempeh, grilled
- Nutritional Yeast
- Parsley, freshly chopped
- ‘Bacon’, Seitan chopped
- Bread, everything is truly optional
- Saute Onion and Garlic. Boil and season ‘cream’.
- Cook noodles, leave starch and cool.
- Add egg replacer, Daiya and Mushrooms.
- Cook down adding noodles. Serve.
The grilled Tempeh gives that deadly animal flesh look that so many love. To me, it’s nutritious and delicious.
There was a Spring tease this weekend in Illinois. It was wonderful and hope is evident. Lube those bike chains. Mentally prepare for Spring cleaning. Baseball is in the air and soon here grilled veggies will be the aroma in your neighborhood.
Save animals, kill plants.
My Sunday Funday was a Sudday Mudday 🙂
