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.
In the other bowl with the roasted diced Potatoes, cooked Northern Beans, cooked Wild Rice, slightly browned diced Onion, cooked diced Carrots, Roasted Corn, Mashed Cauliflower, Horseradish and Tofurky™ ‘Chorizo’ and SeaSalt/Pepper/GarlicPowder were mixed and slightly mashed together.
A simple Diaya Sauce was prepared in a saucepan with non-dairy Cream, Daiya and Sea Salt & Pepper.
The roasted Leeks & Potatoes were lightly pan-fried with Crushed Red Pepper, Garlic, Sea Salt & Pepper before adding Lemon Juice and White Wine Vinegar. After cooling, sliced Spinach was mixed in.
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.
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.
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.
Bean Sauce was mixed and warmed. The Sauce consisted of Almond Milk, (Vegetarian) Refried Beans, Ⓥ Chorizo, Pico de Gallo, Corn and Seasonings.
The Mac N Cheese was prepared just as the package suggested, however, after draining the Whole Wheat Pasta, Bean Sauce, Noodles, Wild Rice, Green Peppers, Jalapeños, Cilantro and Daiya™ Cheese Sauce were tossed together.
Guacamole was plated like a bed of garnishing greens before a Mexball and a sliced Burrito were added to the assortment.
Broth, Garlic, Bell Peppers, Setian, Cheican, Corn and Onion were simmered heavy.
In a mixing bowl, a lettuce mixture, Vegenaise, Cilantro, Lemon Juice, Pepper, Chili Garlic Sriracha and ‘Parmesan Cheese’ were tossed with much love:)
After straining the greatness from the hot simmering Veggie Broth, The Greatness, Cayenne, Black Olives and DAIYA were covered and melted infusingly with Agave Tequila.
RIP, Anthony Bourdain.
Once, many years ago, in a culinary career attempt, Anthony Bourdain was most inspiring to me-influencing realism and motivation to be oneself.
Coconut milk, Chipotle Powder, Jalapeño, Carrot, Onion, Peppers, Black & Red Beans, Ⓥ Chorizo and Corn were simmered. No additional seasonings were added other than the Chipotle Powder. Refried Beans were stirred in. Daiya was generously dumped in with fresh Cilantro.
With Tortilla Chips tucked underneath the Beanan Daiya, Avocado, Pico de Gallo, Jalapeño and Scallions accented and garnished this delicious plate.
Chips were scooped heavy and good Beer was had.
