A Ⓥegan play on Shepherd’s Pi was created with many flavors and textures coming together very nicely.
The Ⓥice was a mixture of Jasmine & Wild Rice, Ⓥ Broth, Garlic, Carrots, Lemon Juice, Basil & Parsley, Sea Salt/Pepper/Chipotle Powder/Lemon Pepper, Capers, Earth Balance, White Wine, Corn & Peas and Meatless Crumbles.
The Mashed Potatoes were prepared simply combining Ⓥ Broth, simple Seasonings, Parsley, Paprika, Instant Mashed Potatoes and Corn Meal.
Ⓥice on bottom and Potatoes on top were panned and baked. I tried them upside down and right side up. Both were delicious!
Marinara was heated with Ⓥegan Crumbles and simmered. A Beyond Burger patty was tossed into a hot pan. After a few minutes, the patty was flipped once and doused with the Meatless Sauce.
And then topped with Daiya and Spinach. A toothpick was utilized to keep the slippery Daiya in place. Covered and infused:)
The Bun was lathered with Earth Balance ‘butter’ and panfried before spreading Meatless Sauce on the fried Bun. Combining with texture and exploding with flavor, this sandwich was quick, easy and fun.
I have survived my second desert summer and the hottest Phoenix summer ever recorded.
From the Sonoran Desert, I am rain dancing (pacing back and forth in the A/C w/ 114 degrees outside) for the clouds/moisture/rain to flow from the Northeast.
Time will tell. During all of this dancing, an easy Low Budget Vegan sandwich was put together.
Tomato Bun (8) @ $0.88 = $0.11 per serving
Mustard (99) @ $1.78 = $0.02 per serving
Vegenaise (32) @ $4.49 = $0.14 per serving
Organic Tomato (3) @ $1.34 = $0.45 per serving
Daiya (11) @ $4.79 = $ 0.44 per serving
Organic Spinach (8) @ 2.99 = $0.37 per serving
This sandwich includes a little more effort than a fast food joint and a little more expensive then their probably drive thru menu, but Who wants to kill themselves with fast food, anyways…. $1.53 per sandwich and maybe 15 minutes when melting the Daiya.
Happy August to all!
VeggHead BeerCyclist survived the never-ending month of July. The virus/pandemic has impacted us all differently, but perseverance and optimism will get us by.
A homemade Veggie Broth was prepared using Water, Carrot, Celery, Onion and Seasonings (Sea Salt, Pepper & Garlic Powder).
Ditalini pasta, Peppers, Mexican Grey Squash, Beans, Corn, Broth and Seitan chunks were combined and cooked until the Broth was cooked down. Cilantro was added:)
Simple. Delicious and fun to look at. Happy Saturday!
Happy Monday! Hope all is safe and well in this scary world.
Carrots, Potatoes, Onion, Garlic, Peas, Corn, Pepper & Paprika met a slab (package) of Ⓥ Beyond Beef and Veggie Broth.
Slow cooked all day, this was ever comforting:)
Broth, Water, Garlic, Jalapeño, Ⓥ ‘chicken’, Brown Rice, Kidney Beans, Corn, Peppers, Onion and Pepper were simmered into greatness.
The greatness filled warm tortillas and thoroughly enjoyed.
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.
A skillet was preheated and the rice mixture was thrown in with Vegan Tomato Basil Soup. Organic Tater Tots were baked. Daiya was melted into the Riceyness. Tater Tots to top with a garnish of Cilantro. BOOM.
