Ⓥ Chipotle Chocolate Cucumber Chilaquiles

I’ve been dreaming of Euphoria. Mexican-style bliss may possibly bring myself the closest to that state. Infusing ingredients. Confusing palates. Enthusing and bemusing, let’s tip one back and have fun.

This Chilaquiles concept has evolved from its original normality. I baked Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Lavash Bread pieces taking away the fried corn tortillas to be flavorfully healthier.

Interlaying baked Lavash pieces with the Chipotle Chocolate Cucumber Sauce like a pyramid ready for demolition. Garnishing with Lemon and Lime slices, the dish was destroyed along with the plate and fork and table.

Biscuits & GraⓋy

In a past life, I was some sort of Creole of Spanish descent or something. I love Mexican/Spanish-style cooking. I destroyed a kitchen today in vast death of plants. Tonights plant massacre was a brutal genocide. My kitchen will never be the same.

I cooked dried Black Eyed Peas from dry state and timed things correctly to add ingredients to one pot. The order went; Wild Rice, (slightly) precooked Black Eyed Peas – Brown Rice, mini Potatoes – Red Quinoa, Corn, Seitan, Ceican and then I started my Biscuits. I separately BBQd Seitan and Cheican while baking store-bought biscuits.

Cheican Jambalaya

Yesterday, an extremely spontaneous plant-based concoction was prepared and destroyed dangerously as if I were carnivorous, teeth ripping, blood gurgling animal flesh to survive a deadly northern pole winter without a grocery store.

No harm to animals became of this.

Exhausted and tipsy, Jasmine and Wild Rice were cooked in water with Lentils. Drunk and lazy, dried seasonings were used in the form of Minced Onion, Crushed Red Pepper, Sea Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder. Cheican ( iMade that name up, Ⓥ Morning Star chicken strips) were added with Penne and Pepe Noodles. Served with Marble Rye Bread and Salsa Verde, my hunger was fulfilled.

Today, in a warmed skillet, Veggie Broth and last nights Noodle Concoction were simmered stirringly. Additional seasonings (Sugar, Liquid Smoke, Sea Salt, Pepper, Onion & Garlic P) were added before stirring in Guacamole, Tofutti ‘cream cheese’, Tofutti ‘chorizo’ and BBQ Sauce.

In the meantime, homemade Bread Daiya was well underway. Marble Rye Bread was engulfed one side with Earth Balance ‘butter’ and grilled on a cast iron skillet. After all pieces were grilled, a couple of pieces were selected to further the Bread Daiya. They were smeared with Earth Balance again, Garlic, Onion Powder, Oregano and BBQ before Daiya. They were baked on the cast iron skillet and topped with a bit of Dill Weed.
