Tato Tota Casso

Traditional recipes names are boring. This recipe is nowhere near traditional, anyways. Let’s make it Vegan with texture & character. My recipes are Super spontaneous and meant to be inspiration to create your own recipe:)

This began mixing Salsa, Water, Carrot, Split Pea, Onion, Potato into soupiness that became chunky once the Peas were cooked in.

In a bigger pot, Garlic and Beyond Beef were slightly pan-fried before Rice was mixed in. After browning, Water, a curry cube and Cilantro were combined. Eventually, the prior concoction was tossed in and cooked appropriately.

Beyond Meat is making incredibly meat-like meat substitutes. Personally, I enjoy trying them, but as I’ve mentioned before, staying away from these meat-like products is my goal. In a bigger picture, these products could sway the carnivores away from their norm and partake in healthier eating.

Ⓥ Picklewurst

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.

SW Rice Ⓥ Queso

When life gives ya a flat on the bicycle, I’d hope you were in preparations like I was today. This would be my fifth ride on the new Trek.

BFB0A3DD-88F5-48F3-B64B-925CA7DC8343_1_105_c

A multitool was brought. Two beers and one water were stowed. A pump, patch kit nor tube was not. Uber wasn’t the best at responding if they could fit a bicycle with. A beer was had. The water was salvaged (in survival mode-periodically sipped) and a trek home while pushing a Trek was experienced.

And Good Food was prepared. Southwestern Rice Ⓥ Queso was influenced by The Sonoran desert and its beautiful cacti warriors, the Saguaro cactus. A Chile Ⓥ Queso was made previously by heating Daiya ‘cheese’ Sauce with Pico de Gallo, Kidney Beans, Crumbles, Jalapeño and Corn. Seasoned, of course, with Sea Salt and Pepper. And CILANTRO:)

BBⓋ Cauliflower TACO

Occasionally, a half work day fixes everything. Not to say anything is wrong, but a little me-time is extremely therapeutic. I had a beer, took some pictures, helped a fallen man into his apt with his wife, went for a little bike ride in the 100 degree desert sunniness and am now writing about my Tacos. CHEERS.

Ⓥ Taco Burger

Vegan Crumbles, Garlic, Hot Sauce, Pico de Gallo, Corn Salsa and Spinach were sautéed before being cooked along with Ⓥ cheese in a tortilla. Sliced carefully on the corners, these ‘beefy’ Tacos layered on top a Vegan ‘burger’ Patty. With Ⓥ Cilantro spread, these ingredients constructed a monumental Taco Burger between two Quality Bagels.
