Flour Tortilla Bowls became stuffed with soupiness and baked/broiled briefly. Chives to garnish and compliment a good Craft Beer and a bike ride.

Brocco Taco

Distant mountaintops, subtly waving palm trees silhouetting a true blue sky

Groups of hot air balloons hovering tall in the Northern sky

The brilliant sun, all its powerful energy makes wide

A smile one cannot pry

Every direction is paradise

Life is my heaven

Never-ending photography failure occurs when photos cannot capture what my eyes see. Irreplaceable and priceless brain screenshots are in my head. It has taken many years to begin realizing that experiencing greatness doesn’t need documentation. Photographs are just reminders and in my case, hopefully Inspiration.

7F1BD5FA-8F40-4B4F-A4C0-B03A69D3564D_1_105_cF4941BA9-6682-46E0-B00F-25CEC7642BBB_1_105_c188D46DE-3AD3-4501-87F9-A13862E819EB_1_105_c31493A45-93DB-444F-BE3E-34A20B60A646_1_105_c

As words usually run and hide from me, Broccoli Taco’s were documented today. They were extremely easy and packed with texture & flavor.

In a skillet, light oil was heated before throwing in a surplus of Broccoli Florets to be scorched. In the fridge and then out of the fridge, leftover (baked) Onion Rings were utilized by taking a chopped form to be tossed in with the Broccoli. Seasoned with Crushed Rep Pepper Flakes, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt & Pepper, the skillet was popped into the oven to lightly roast prior to adding Ⓥegan Gouda. Broiled, roasted and melted ever so nice, Corn Tortillas were stuffed with this greatness and charred once again.

Again, I do not wish to tell you what to do, but I recommend a bicycle ride, trying something new and taking a couple of decent photos.

Taco Tuesday

Taco Tuesday very well could be everyday of the week. But, today is actually Tuesday. So, hooray!! In ten hours, I will fly to the Midwest from the Southwest United States and just incase the plane goes down, a maybe last meal has to be enjoyed and shared. A bike ride and photos complimented my Vegan tacos.

Happy Tuesday and CHEERS.

Shepherdless Pi

A recreation, Vegan Shepherdless Pi, roamed free. Multiple attempts were made to find my previous recipe, however, failure and apathy became victorious.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_116c2UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1161dUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_116bb

Beyond Meat Crumbles and Soy ‘chorizo’were panfried in light Oil to be combined with Potatoes O’brien (Potato, Onion, Peppers, Corn, Boiled chopped Carrot, Garlic and Seasonings (sriracha, Oregano, Sea Salt, Pepper & Crushed Red Peppers).

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_116b1UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_116b7UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_116c0UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_11603

Due to lacking ingredients, Water was used instead of NonDairy product or Veggie Broth. Rice (Brown, Quinoa, Wild), Red Onion, Black Beans, Vegan ‘parmesan’, Nutri Yeast, Dill Weed, Sea Salt and Spinach were prepared with Instant Mashed Potatoes to the desired consistency.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_11637UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_116c5

In the pan that the Vegan Crumbles awesomeness were prepared in, the Mashed Potato greatness covered. Chipotle seasoning was generously sprinkled on top and was tossed into the oven. After a slight broil, pictures and consumption followed.

MexiSlawRito

In this exciting year of 2019, I have experienced the coldest and hottest temperatures of my life. And the Arizona desert valley still has a lot of summer left.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_10e17UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_10e1a

Spontaneous Mexi Slaw was brainstormed quickly. It seemed like a wonderful idea to enjoy this in a tortilla, burrito-style.

Light Oil was warmed in a pan before adding Garlic, Onion, Pepper, Potato and Beyond Meat Crumbles. After pan-frying those delicious ingredients, Seasonings (Crushed Red Pepper, Oregano, Sea Salt & Pepper) were added. Ever stirring, a (from scratch) Bean/Rice concoction was added. After cooking somewhat heavily, Pickle Juice was mixed in. Veggies (Tomato, Cucumber & (packed) Coleslaw) were infused with the power of stirring before saucing it up with Vegenaise and a little BBQ Sauce. Removed from the heat, Spinach barely fit to be included, stirringly.

The local Tortillas were warmed before adding Romaine slices and the MexiSlaw. iFold.
