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:)
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.
Refried Beans were made from scratch with Pinto Beans, Carrots, Veggie Broth, Onion, Garlic, Paprika, Cayenne and Sea Salt.
Rice was cooked and Earth Balance ‘butter’ was added.
Meatless Crumbles, (frozen) Potatoes O’Brien, Garlic, Corn from the cob, Spinach and Daiya made up my Protein Stir-Fry.
Happy Tuesday and CHEERS.
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.
Raw texture and flavor between warmed Flour Tortillas were prepared, yesterday, after a bicycle ride.
Green & Red Peppers were chopped and mixed with Onion, Tomato, Jalapeño, Vegan ‘parmesan’, Daiya, Olive, Mustard and Vegenaise.
Spinach and Avocado helped complete the raw deliciousness of these uncooked veggies.
In the Arizona Desert, activity is common in the mornings and evenings to utilize daylight and (somewhat) comfortable conditions. Walking with a beer, I find a prickly tree to set my beer on to check in online.
The food ideas flood my mind like a flash-flood.
BBQ Sauce, Craft Mustard, Chipotle and Veggie broth were mixed to create my mushroom sauce. The Portobello Cap was drenched with sauce in and out, above and below a hot oven.
Garlic, Onion, Crushed Red Peppers and sliced spinach was slightly warmed.
Earth Balance ‘butter’ smothered buns were crisped. CHEERS.
Mac N Daiya was prepared as normal for a second. Imagination was evident and severely utilized. Fire roasted tomatoes, Chives and Cucumber were added to the slightly undercooked Mac. Crushed Red Peppers and Soy ‘chorizo’ was mixed in on a low//medium heat before adding the mouth watering Daiya ‘cheese’. Lightly salted and peppered, excitement was immense.
A single ingredient can light a spark in the mind that infuses multiple sparks to reuse ideas with a new concept and, BOOM, let’s make food today like this………….
Daiya ‘string cheese’ was found! I’ve been in love with Daiya for many of years now, bringing dairy-free deliciousness to my beloved comfort food. And excuse to make a pizza pi….. any excuse…. Vegan Pizza does not count as a relapse, in my book:)
Forever a Pizza Addict, a delicious pizza was made with a Daiya stuffed crust. I added the MacN Daiya with a bit more Daiya, some Smart ‘bacon’ and (:OMG:) Vegan ‘parm’ and Earth Balance ‘butter’ CRUST.
