Happy Thursday. I hope the world is well enough alone. Optimism is key for happiness and to boost yours and others immune systems.
Good food helps. Good comfort food is what I prescribe to multitask a few needs.
In a saucepan, Ⓥ ‘cream’, JustEGG, SeaSalt, Pepper, GarlicPowder and Paprika were brought to a strong simmer.
Ⓥ ‘parm cheese’, Mushroom, Smart Bacon and Parsley were mixed in. Linguine (precooked and seasoned) was mixed in to bring an easy comfort food, Ⓥegan-style, to my face and hopefully yours.
A mushroom craving was felt. A Ⓥ Mushroom Daiya Melt was constructed.
Good Bread was key. And giving that good bread proper heat character was key as well.
Avocado Oil was utilized instead of Earth Balance today. Portobello Mushrooms were sliced and thrown on a hot flat cast iron skillet. Once the Mushrooms started to juice, I seasoned lightly with Sea Salt, Pepper and (dry) Thyme. Sprouts was out of fresh Thyme. I flipped, lightly seasoned and charred the opposite side. Meanwhile, in light Olive Oil, Garlic, Ginger, Onion and Pepper were caramelized before adding Red Wine, Sea Salt and the Mushroom. At the very last moment, Arugula was mixed in.
The bread was charred one side before building the sandwich on each char side. Daiya, Arugula and Mushroom mixture made this sandwich. Thrown on the skill and flipped, this beastly Vegan sandwich was topped with shredded Daiya and Broiled. Cut in fourths, toothpicks were utilized to keep this stack intact.
