Ⓥanana Cream Waffles w/ Bluberries

Fruit is not in my food preparation routines, usually. However, these Vegan Belgian waffles have been making my mouth water at the local Sprouts, my home away from home (away from work:), every time they are spotted. A savory waffle sandwich will not be ruled out, in the future.

Organic Bananas were blended with Daiya ‘cream cheese’, Non Dairy ‘creamer’, Vanilla & light Sugar. After blending so cool, refrigeration was utilized while Waffle preparing took place. Keep Cool.

Three pre-made frozen Waffles were thawed in the oven before panfrying in Earth Balance. Quick & easy, the Waffles were plated, creamed and berried.

Just Egg Review

Ironic names are a blast. Craft Beer is iconic for ironically punny titles of Beers. Just Egg is in that same boat for an egg supplement product. Now.

I am a huge fan of this product due do to separating itself (more than the other egg supplements) from being egg-like. Cooking capabilities help, as well.

Try it:)

Happy Sunday Funday! I was craving a Ⓥ dawg last night and had a couple left over. Utilizing leftovers is a never ending fight in my food preparation practices. Also, an eggless Salad was left over from a previous post…

C286352D-FAB1-456C-AA76-DBE0738D8337_1_105_cDD8AFFDB-D03B-4FFE-891B-26B76BB7E253_1_105_c75B0CEA6-6922-419B-8711-8748EF726F16_1_105_cEFC16BD4-1168-4015-8E70-E9E55E0623D9_1_105_c

The (bicycle) wheels in my head proceeded to rotate. Google did help to visualize a Mexican-style hot dog. It sounded delicious if it were Ⓥegan. A bun of any sort was not utilized.

3BA9AD52-6CCE-4E7B-9CEC-DE5993342A95_1_105_cA9CC1670-C38A-469F-92D1-80C652C810B2_1_105_cEBE95A52-3617-488A-922A-3FD1ADE0364B

Instead of a boring bun, Corn Tortillas were sandwiched between Daiya. The Ⓥ Smart Dog was not wrapped with Smart Bacon. In the past months, I’ve been veering away from pretending to eat carnivorous. I still have much room for improvements with my pretend meat – style comfort foods.

Vegenaise, chopped Smart Bacon and eggless Salad were stuffed with the Smart Dog in the Daiya filled Corn Tortillas.

And you cannot forget the Cilantro.

Awakening to lightening striking bright and quaking loud thunder, creates a great way to start the day. Happy November from the Sonoran desert, where we do not need to save the daylight. The daylight reigns supreme in Arizona.

A morning bringing ultimate motivation brings a deliciously crafted Ⓥegan Sandwich. Field Roast Patties and Eggless Salad were utilized in this concept. The Patties were panfried and then set aside. Peppers were then panfried. Large Tortillas were warmed before being stuffed.

Spinach, Pico de Gallo, Avocado, Eggless Salad, the Patties and Peppers were stuffed into the Tortilla before lightly toasting in the oven. Sliced in half and tossed in a basket, what an amazing fuel to ride the rain puddles away with the sun over my shoulder.

Normally, I only have room for one vice. This past Tuesday and Wednesday, I made room for one more. Las Vegas was experienced for the first time during an intentional overnight layover.

A2D0562C-C1B2-4D05-999B-D0BA8864276DF05AA1D3-0371-4A1D-938B-3AB5F6CD9898_1_105_c8CBAF307-4A75-4C2A-BBAF-FA01A7D33FE7_1_105_c

When in Vegas, one has to gamble. I’m happy to say that I came out with $250 and a great experience.

Avocado was sliced thinly and placed on top of Pico de Galo on top of a frozen Daiya Cheese Pizza and then baked heavily.

The Daiya Pizza was cut into one square and sliced into Taquito fillers. The Daiya Pizza strips and Cilantro were rolled up into a Taquito and then baked.

Potatoes were seasoned with Chipotle, Garlic Powder and Sea Salt to be mixed with Radish and Guacamole.

I don’t condone gambling, but when in Vegas, enjoy a few Beers and play a few hands of Blackjack. And perfection in one person does not exist no matter where you are:)

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.

18C64E97-7C96-45A0-8A2D-07AC57BD7235_1_105_c85AA8AB9-E0FD-4CF7-8BDD-FE691D2DA7A5_1_105_cE73B2294-0760-4DA3-8E7A-921289BE43B4_1_105_c
