No meat look-alikes. No dairy look-alikes. These simple Tacos are packed with amazingly normal Veggies.
(Sea Salt/Pepper/Paprika was utilized)
A Lasagna with mass character and vast flavorfulness is here:)
Marinara was combined with Salsa, Parsley, Lentils, Ⓥ Crumbles and Rice to be simmered (covered for 20-25 minutes prior to construction of the Lasagna fabrication.
Sauce layered the bottom of my cooking dish with delicious Roasted Corn before the (oven-ready) Lasagna Noodles laid the foundation of greatness.
The layers continue…
Sauce, Roasted Corn, Jalapeño, Daiya, and Noodles – repeat.
As personal layers of climates in the last few years – midwest winters, Sonoran Desert summers, midwestern frozen winters, optimism is had and ongoing. Stay healthy:)
Life isn’t what it once was, but for hopefully all of us, still thriving through this global pandemic.
(Vegetarian) Refried Beans were warmed with Veggie Broth, Crumbles, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Paprika.
Small Pizza Crusts were then topped with the Bean Sauce, Jalapeño and Daiya:)
A Taco Salad Shell was warmed and stuffed with a mixture of Arugula, Spinach, Iceberg Lettuce and Corn.
To further Tacofy (?) this Salad…. Avocado, Tomato, Onion and Olives were added.
The Pizza was the angel to the christmas tree…..
STAY SAFE. MASK UP.
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.
As of 2020, the world’s doomsday clock has been set to a short 100 seconds. That was before this damn virus invaded our lives. Hopefully, immune systems and summer climates destroy this Corona without a Lemon or a Lime.
Tofu was baked on a griddle before being tossed with light Olive Oil and Hot Sauce.
I picked up a unique Hot Sauce while visiting Northern Arizona in a “haunted” old mining town, Jerome, AZ. This Hot Sauce is extremely Southwestern with ingredients being; Habanero, Smoked Habanero, Carrot Puree, Piquine Peppers, Smokey Pepper Vinegar, Tequila, Lime Juice, Onion & Spices.
Flour Tortillas were baked while Iceberg & Romaine Lettuce was mixed with sliced Spinach, Hummus and Pico de Gallo (Tomato, Cilantro, Lime Juice, Onion & Jalapeño).
Hand washing has always been a very consistent thing in my life as it should be in yours.
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.
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.
Veggie Refried Black Beans, Soyrizzo, Tomato Sauce, Corn, Garlic Powder, Spice and Sea Salt were simmered.
Yellow Potatoes were chopped and tossed in Sunflower Oil before being roasted at high heat.
Flour Tortillas were lathered with the Refried Bean concoction and a few small slices of Daiya before being slightly warmed.
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:)
