Soon after, Orzo Noodles were added with a medley of riced Veggies (Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrot). Once the noodles reached the state of slightly undercooked, Daiya ‘Alfredo’ was added with sliced Spinach and Nutritional Yeast.

CHEERS.

Flat Aco Two

Sitting in the refreshing breezy shade

Dull subtly humming 101 loop buzz

Pondering food, pondering bicycle rides

Birds singing

palm trees dancing

Mountains distant, standing short and tall in every direction

The sun ever present

Adapting to the desert has been a trial/error process. Surviving while Riding a bike and drinking beer all day in Illinois was easy compared to riding a bike and drinking one beer for one hour in the desert.

Ⓥlat Aco

Pineapple Juice mixed with Seasonings, Scallions and Instant Mashed potatoes to act as a “Sauce” on a tortilla. This Tortilla with its “Sauce” was topped with Daiya, Avocado, Pineapple and a separately prepared meatless Crumbles, Corn and Garlic. This beastly flat Taco was baked for a bit, but heavy as hell.

Daiya Snack Attack

In the past, Daiya Mac has been purchased just for the Sauce. Today, Daiya Sauce without noodles was purchased for the first time. Sesame Seed Pretzels were also purchased. One of the Sauce packets were opened and Pretzels were dipped and plated. After a couple of pictures were taken, these pretzels were happily and joyfully consumed.

The All-American Ⓥ patty was pan-fried in light oil to be set aside. Good Bread was fried appropriately with Earth Balance “butter” before being crafted with Daiya, Ketchup, Mustard, Grilled Onions and Pickles. Lathered with more Earth Balance, the patty was added and pan-fried, lastly.

Lettuce, Sunflower Seeds, Tomato, Northern Beans, Cucumber and grilled Jalapeno were topped with a Plant-Based protein-heavy Daiya Melt Sandwich, cubed.

A different take on an American ‘burger’ to be eaten with a forking fork without animal harm or discomfort.

In a separate pot, Pickle Juice, Pepper and Garlic Powder were brought to a simmer. Northern Beans, (Instant) Brown/Quinoa/Wild Rice mixture, Beyond Meat Crumbles were added and heated until the Pickle Juiced infused and evaporated.

After the Daiya melted, the two seperate concoctions were combined with chopped Dill Pickles. Tortillas were warmed. Tortillas were stuffed and folded.
