With ease, a simple and quick Salad was developed. After the Chickpeas are cooked of course, a matter of putting things together was only needed.
Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Garlic, Sea Salt, Peppe & Chipotle Powder mixed/stirred/shooken was created.
Tri-color Rotini was cooked and mixed with the Chickpeas, Green Pepper, Onion, Radish, White Onion and VEGAN Parmesan. Just a quick reason to post a few pictures:)
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:)
Low Budget Ⓥeganism is self-explained once typed out.
The key to LBⓋ is simplicity. All you need is Good Beer, Good Tunes and Good Positivity. The texture was great:)
- Tortillas [(Flour (20] @ $2.19 = $0.11 per serving
- Peanut Butter (11) @ $3.79 = $0.35 per serving
- Celery (2) @ $0.88 = $0.44 per serving
Squeezable Peanut Butter helps this simple idea more taco-ish. $0.90 per serving!
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:):):):)
Beyond Breakfast ‘sausages’ were hiding in my freezer. These ‘sausages’ are extremely meat-like and not wished to be consumed regularly. A Ⓥegan Breakfast was prepared.
Create your own!
Mushroom Broth, Garlic, Carrot, Onion, Jalapeño, Pepper, Nutritional Yeast, Crumbles, Mushrooms, Wild Rice and Instant Mashed Potatoes were heated and mixed accordingly.
Corn Tortillas were sandwiched with Ⓥegan Gouda, Beyond Meat, Mushroom greatness and Pico de Gallo. The Tortilla stuffed Pi was pan fried in Olive Oil.
May sunshine be in your day:)
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.
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.
