Taco Tuesday

Taco Tuesday very well could be everyday of the week. But, today is actually Tuesday. So, hooray!! In ten hours, I will fly to the Midwest from the Southwest United States and just incase the plane goes down, a maybe last meal has to be enjoyed and shared. A bike ride and photos complimented my Vegan tacos.

In light Sunflower Oil, Garlic and Onion were sautéed before adding Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale. One sip was had before the remaining 15 ish ounces went into the pot. Stone Chipotle Mustard, Sea Salt and Garlic Powder were mixed in and cooked down.

Bloody Ⓥlatty Melt

Sipping on a Bloody Mary, munching on the Bloody Mary marinated Celery and thinking of eating a Bloody Mary.

Many of Bloody Mary mixes contain Anchovies, but not all of them.

Rice concoction (Brown, Red, Wild & Quinoa), Corn, Black Beans and Pickles met Beyond Meat and a Vodka heavy Bloody Mary. This Patty was pan-fried, heavenly.

Daiya Cream was heated and utilized from another concept. Sauerkraut and Caramelized Onions complimented this beefless, Beefy sandwich.

Earth Balance lathered Whole Wheat Bread were pan-fried on one side, lightly, before being constructed with the slightly toasted sides platforming the amazing ingredients included with this sandwich.

Garnished with a Bike Ride and a couple of Beers, this sandwich was PERFECT.

Shepherdless Pi

A recreation, Vegan Shepherdless Pi, roamed free. Multiple attempts were made to find my previous recipe, however, failure and apathy became victorious.

Beyond Meat Crumbles and Soy ‘chorizo’were panfried in light Oil to be combined with Potatoes O’brien (Potato, Onion, Peppers, Corn, Boiled chopped Carrot, Garlic and Seasonings (sriracha, Oregano, Sea Salt, Pepper & Crushed Red Peppers).

Due to lacking ingredients, Water was used instead of NonDairy product or Veggie Broth. Rice (Brown, Quinoa, Wild), Red Onion, Black Beans, Vegan ‘parmesan’, Nutri Yeast, Dill Weed, Sea Salt and Spinach were prepared with Instant Mashed Potatoes to the desired consistency.

In the pan that the Vegan Crumbles awesomeness were prepared in, the Mashed Potato greatness covered. Chipotle seasoning was generously sprinkled on top and was tossed into the oven. After a slight broil, pictures and consumption followed.

Beyond BigAss Burger

Comfort food is my favorite. Vegan comfort food, to me, is always missing something. I want a fat freaking Vegan sandwich. Let’s make it happen.

Beyond Meat is crazily making Vegan foods imitate real meat. They do a wonderful job, but their style isn’t my style. Less meat-likeness and more non-, meat-ness.

A 1/2 lb Vegan sandwich was created. Cheers.
