From the cool, cloudy & rainy Sonoran Desert, MERRY CHRISTMAS. A hefty batch of Chili Acini was prepared and adored. Everyone makes Chili Mac… Let’s change it up, a bit.
Red Kidney Beans were cooked alongside a giant handful of Wild Rice. A Sicilian Chef introduced me the pasta Acini de Pepe enlightenment in preparing Italian Wedding Soup.
In extremely light Oil, Garlic, Onion, Celery and Carrots were pan-fried before drowning in Veggie Broth, chopped Peppers, ‘meat’ Crumbles and Corn.
A small portion of remaining Daiya was added with Ⓥ Cream. After cooking down briefly, the Pasta was added with Cilantro & chopped Tomatoes.
A Craft Beer and Bike Ride to garnish, HAPPY HOLIDAYS:)
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.
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.
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…
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.
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.
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:)
