Wild Bean Burger

Leeks were used in a concoction for the first time in my life. This will not be the last time that Leeks are messed with:)

Diced Russet Potatoes were tossed in light Oil and seasoned with Sea Salt & Pepper before being roasted. Halfway through, the Potatoes were separated into two bowls. In the bowl that was originally used to toss the Potatoes Leek half-moons were added and tossed before being roasted longer.

The Burger ‘meat’ was brought to proper consistency with Instant Mashed Potatoes. Patties were formed and baked.

After baking, a patty was put into a hot cast iron skillet and topped with the Leeking Potatoes and Daiya Sauce before being slightly broiled. The Wild Bean Burger was added to a toasted Bagel and enjoyed viciously.

A Russet Potato was sliced Hasselback-style and roasted. The roasted Potato was stuffed with chopped Daiya slices to be further roasted. A Daiya Sauce was constructed on top of the oven in a saucepan.

Coconut Milk (dairy-free) Creamer was simmered and seasoned with Garlic Powder, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Sea Salt and Pepper. After heating, chopped Broccoli Florets and five slices of Daiya were stirred into the Vegan Cream. The heat was increased, allowing the dairy-free greatness to expand while stirring frequently.

The Sauce stood for a few minutes before engulfing the plated daiya infused Hasselback-style Potato. Vegan Bacon was a tasty garnish for this amazing Potato.

MexMac N Daiya

Daiya™ Mac N Cheese was experienced. And, of course, it couldn’t be just Mac N Cheese. The Diaya™ product was infused with Mexican-style ingredients. Away from the Mac N Cheese, Mexballs were created.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_ec1aUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_ebc9

The Mexballs were a combination of Almond Milk, Lightlife™ ‘sausage’ & ‘beef’, (cooked) Quinoa, Scallions, Corn, Cilantro, (Italian-style) Breadcrumbs, Garlic, Sea Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Cayenne. A few more Breadcrumbs were added after mixing to obtain the correct consistency. After balls were molded, baking carefully took place.

Once, many years ago, in a culinary career attempt, Anthony Bourdain was most inspiring to me-influencing realism and motivation to be oneself.
