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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

Beyond Sausage Pilaf

Beyond Sausage was experienced for the first time in this idea. The meatless product held up well. Here is the wordless recipe.

A desert Mountain Lion pack intersection was made by accident on an evening bike ride last night. Nobody nor animal was hurt. When one Mountain Lion (Cat) looked back at me with a little kitty in mouth, our eyes matched and I could tell this animal was as scared as I was. I was unable to capture a photograph. Happy Friday. CHEERS.

 

Spicy Sprouts

Garlic, Ginger, Carrots, Raw Cashews, Onion and Serrano Peppers were pan-fried generously in Sesame Seed Oil before adding handfuls of Bean Sprouts. Eventually, Crushed Red Peppers, Radish halves & sliced Spinach were added to the mix.
