Trying to think outside of the bun, yet, stay inside of the bun, a sandless wich was constructed.
Corn Tortillas, a Pretzel Bun, Daiya, Cilantro, Black Beans and Jalapeño brought this deliciously textured (animal-free) beast to life.
To make this piece of art look and taste even better, Romain Lettuce, Tomato and Onion were placed between the Bun//Tortilla greatness. Served with steakless Fries and thrown into a basket, minimal dishes only had to be done. Stay safe!
Hummus as the condiment:)
Simple and fairly quick, these Potatoes do not mess around. Heartier than your normal steak Fries, these are steakless Fries and Ⓥeganful Fries.
Quality Russet Potatoes were quartered into large wedges. Large enough wedges to basically be an entree dish.
The wedges were tossed in light Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Pepper, thrown on parchment paper (peels down) and roasted for around 20 minutes at 405.
The wedges were tonged back into the mixing bowl and lightly seasoned with Garlic Powder, a pouch of Daiya ‘cheese’ and a pouch of Daiya ‘bacon’ from the ghost of Ⓥegan past. The hot Potatoes were not as easy to toss as dreamt. Almond milk was added to ease that process to my liking.
These amazingly dressed Potatoes were roasted at 455 for additional 20 ish minutes. A craft Beer and a Hard Seltzer was had:)
Garnished with Scallions. Inspired by the amazing Sonoran Desert, I drew my niece a Bday card:)
Happy Saturday night!
Utilizing store bought Chipotle (frozen) ‘burger’ patties, an enhancement to their subtle Chipotle flavoring took place.
A seasoning mixture was produced. Chipotle Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, (Good) Sugar, Garlic Powder and Paprika were thrown into this old tin-like shaker as happy as could be:)
Shaved Brussel’s Sprouts were prepared to be roasted as well as pan-fried. The pan-fried method required a bit more oil, but it was worth it. Olive oils, Brussel’s Sprouts, Onion and the created spice were sautéed amazingly.
The ALDI Chipotle ‘burger’ patties were ‘grilled’, topped with the Brussel’s savory sauté solution before being smothered with DAIYA and another sprinkle of the SPICE.
Served with delicious Potatoes, no condiments were required in my sandwich. The enhanced Chipotle//rooty Sprouts flavor simply imploded the entire sandwich. Stay safe and don’t forget to moisturize the mind with a God Beer, responsibly.
The world, at least mine, is still a mess, but let’s make some comfort food and calm our nerves with a quality drink.
Evolution is such a beautiful thing. As humans, we are evolution. And as long as we’re on a planet, it will never end.
My drinking habit has evolved to still include great beverages, but allowing my “man-boobs” & “beer-gut” to dissipate. For the last six months, I’ve been enjoying sugarless//maltless hard seltzer’s between beers. Instead of drinking four craft brews in one night, I might have a hard seltzer or two and a beer.
Try it. Who wants to be overweight anymore. Just something that works for me.
In water, Carrots and Potatoes were boiled with Sea Salt, Pepper & Garlic Powder. Wild Rice was cooked separately and drained. Jasmine Rice was added to the Potatoes and Carrots and cooked appropriately.
Once the Rice has been cooked, Corn, Black & Red Kidney Beans, Celery and Onion were added and stirred in with the Wild Rice (previously cooked).
The taste and smell of this dish was amazing, but the texture achievement (after all of the ballots were counted:) stole the show.
Daiya Waffle Tortillas were made in a waffle maker:):):):)
Happy September and Taco Tuesday.
Easy. Earth Balance lathered bread was filled with Vegenaise and Daiya and grilled on both sides. I’ve found the best way to melt Daiya is to cover.
Chipotle Tempeh Elotes Taco
Chipotle Tempeh guidelines are in the link above, Zelda. (Nintendo joke (I quit playing video games like 20 years ago, almost;))
Lettuce, Onion, Tomato and Olives complimented the dice Grilled Daiya Sandwich and Chipotle Tempeh to celebrate a Vegan Taco Tuesday.
Surrounded by an exploding deadly virus and multiple wildfires, the current state of Arizona is close to being hell on Earth.
Comfort food is needed more than ever before. Today’s craving is Mac N’ Daiya!
And leaving recipes alone is not in my vocabulary. Let’s enhance normality. Let’s create character and texture:)
Veggies were lightly roasted before being lightly broiled. A new (to me) Ⓥegan Milk was utilized. Seasoned with Garlic powder, Sea Salt & Pepper, Smoky Tempeh was added to the little Milky mixture. The Mac was barely under cooked, drained and added to the mix with the Daiya ‘cheese’.
The roasted Veggies were added with a little more Ⓥ Milk. This hit the spot:):)
