As of January 3rd, I’ve attempted to enter the world of sobriety. Quitting, drinking alcohol cold turkey, has not prevailed, but perseverance, understanding and optimism will help to succeed. Side note: I have not eaten cold turkey or any other meat in nine years as of today:) I quit smoking cigarettes 12+ years ago on the second attempt. Perfection is imaginary…. vegan bacon? Anyone? I’ve bettered myself in various ways over the years. It’s not impossible, but it takes will power and strivability (just made that word up:) I’m just trying to motivate and document myself while trying to motivate another person to try something difficult to better their life.
This is a huge lifestyle change, but I’m a person whom still NEEDS to eat:) I may not always eat Vegan. I do always eat Vegetarian. Post, in the future, might consist of a little dairy. Let me know what ya think:)
In light Olive Oil, Garlic, Carrot, Celery and Onion were panfried. The fry was seasoned with Pepper before adding Corn Meal, Flour and Sugar. A Ⓥ Bouillon cube (‘chicken’) was added, also. White Wine Vinegar was next.
Almond Milk, CAPERS, Cayenne Pepper, Garden Tomatoes, Mushroom and Cucumber helped intensify this pasta with the almost al dente Linguine that finished cooking in the Ⓥ creaminess:)
Parsley and Ⓥ Parmesan to garnish.
I hope everyone had a Hoppy International Pizza & Beer Day:)
Pineapple chunks were marinated in a Hawaiian style marinade consisting of Sesame Seeds, Garlic, Crushed Red Pepper, Light Brown Sugar, Ginger, White Wine Vinegar, Pineapple Juice, Liquid Smoke, Ketchup and Soy Sauce.
The Bamboo skewer was loaded with the marinated Pineapple chunks, Red Onion, Tofurky Brats and Jalapeño.
Having fun with new Ⓥegan products is a rewarding hobby.
Mimicking carnivorous comfort food is ironic and funny, yet not an everyday thing.
Meat substitutions are obviously better than actual meat products, but still consumed in moderation in my world.
‘Chicken’ sandwiches (BBQ w/ ‘ranch’ & Buffalo w/ ‘blue cheese’), Buffalo Taco (previous post – Ⓥ Buffalo ‘chicken’ Taco) and ‘chicken’ Nuggets have my approval:)
A Daiya& Cilantro infused Bun was roasted.
A Portobello Mushroom Cap was infused with Daiya and roasted.
The Bun was smeared with chunky Guacamole.
The Mushroom Cap was filled w/ delicious Pico de Gallo.
The Bun was stuffed w/ the loaded Portobello Mushroom Cap, Spinach & Arugula.
Served w/ Fries and a refreshing (Good) Beer, this sandwich is explosive w/ texture and character:)
