Preparing my own food is the goal. Finding adventure is the goal. Multiple goals are the goal. Having goals are the goal, also.
My blogings are not to tell you how to do, but to try and inspire to find your own adventure. To choose a different path. Try something risky. And be smart about your well-being.
This update is common, in hopeful understanding.
Recipes are mearly guidelines. I was never a speller. Does it really matter in the hat madder?
Perfection is an impossible feat. Striving for perfection is a common routine.
Kitchen frustrations are a paradigm with frustrations in life. Optimism and adaptation skills ease frustrations.
Ⓥegan Cornbread was attempted for the first time. Just Egg was utilized, but corn starch should have been included, hence, the funny title of this blogging.
The Seitan was generously Chipotle seasoned.
I got me some of that there ridiculous fix of some that there Ⓥegan Southern-style food.
It exists when you create it.
Low Budget Veganism
$1.40 per serving
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:)
Chipotle and Balsamic Vinegar (with Olive Oil, Sea Salt & Pepper and Garlic) came together, infusingly, to be tossed with chopped Eggplant:)
Roasted somewhat toasted, this Eggplant looked and smelt Amazing. A simple Pasta Sauce was simmered with Ⓥ Crumbles, Chickpeas and Mushrooms.
Pre-cooked Brown Rice was added with chopped Parsley and the Roasted Eggplant.
Time exponentially speeds up and my patience exponentially dwindles. Chili is the best cold weather comfort food. Canned beans are for amateurs or a quick fix for those desperate addicts:)
My brain has somewhat evolved into the laziest (at the moment) chili concept – being stuck in a paradox between laziness and quality.
Chili with Lentils = L E N T I L I
Also, with the disapproval of canned beans, seasonings (in my mindfulness) are discouraged.
Natural flavors of hot Peppers and Veggies are my key to something great.
Lentili combined with Almond Milk, Daiya and Mac noodles were the filling to some Green Peppers.
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.
My attempts over the last few years has been to ride ‘bulletproof’ bikes. I want to ride not repair on a RIDE. Pickle Juice and Pepper simmering. Pickles, Onion, Radish are sliced and mixed with Pickle Juice and pepper in a mixing bowl. Vegan Sausages are thrown into the simmering Juice with a Splash! They are heated and then grilled. As are the Whole Wheat Buns. Need I say more.
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.
