Ⓥegan Stromboli

To overcome various obstacles is never an easy feat, but sense of accomplishment can be so great once overcome.

Illinois, this month of January, has been bipolar and basically psychopathic. This one commute home on a Sunday evening was very unusual. The air was thawing the frozen ground like a shock thaw, that some of the most dense fog was literally in the air. On this commute, I had to overcome the fog and a portion of that commute was dealing with the thick fog and the road traffic barely visible. Eyewear was useless because of the heavy moisture in the air. The ground was still mostly frozen with some ice and water. Getting closer to home I chose an off-road path on the softest ground that had some snow, some mud and some puddles. Never had I ever had to deal with all of those obstacles in one ride.

Today, through an indecisive process, a Stromboli was made. A Celery Blush Sauce was utilized to compliment this Vegan roll of awesomeness. The Celery Blush Sauce was a combination of Celery Soup:

High Quality Tomato Puree, Basil, Garlic, White Onion, Sugar, Cayenne, Sea Salt & Pepper were simmered and slightly cooked down before combining with the Celery greatness.

The Ⓥ Stromboli’s key ingredient was a Plant-Based Protein mostly from Lightlife products.

Chopped Smart ‘bacon’, Garlic & Onion Powder, Cayenne, Parsley, Liquid Smoke, Sesame Seed and Ⓥ Parmesan was infused with Lightlife ‘sausage’ and ‘beef’.

Dough was rectangled and seasoned to be then stuffed with the Plant-Based Protein and Daiya. After being rolled up and splashed with Celery Blush Sauce, this massive loaf was baked and cooled to be sliced up and served.
