Ⓥicotta Lasagna Stuffed Pi

Chicago-style stuffed pizza pies used to be prepared everyday by me. They are a lot of fun with endless possibilities. Remastering of this concept will take place eventually. This concept was an all day event and was rather exhausting, but absolutely fitting. Fresh homemade dough was not used. And the next time this concept takes place, the dough will be done much differently.

Back Burner Marina is a great starting point as it needs time to become greatness. It is simply constructed of Celery, Onion, Carrot, Veggie Broth, Garlic, Tomatoes galore, Basil, SeaSalt/Pepper/Sugar/GarlicPowder, Balsamic, Cayenne and TIME.

The Ⓥicotta is a bit more complex. Eggplant was sliced and baked to be further chopped. Fennel Seed was thrown into the mortar and pestle to be slightly crushed with boiled Cashews. Thrown all together was the Eggplant, Fennel, Cashews, Garlic, Lime Juice, Molasses, Shallot, Spinach, Almond Milk, Balsamic Vinegar, SeaSalt, Pepper, Sugar, Liquid Smoke, GarlicPowder, OnionPowder and Cayenne. And the Pepe noodle balls 🙂

Noodles were boiled, drained, but not rinsed. Ⓥicotta was rolled up with the noodles. Dough was panned, while being nonstick Earth Balance was still utilized. Lasagna was put onto dough after Daiya and Back Burner Marinara. Dough was topped and sealed. The massive Pi was baked and then more Back Burner Marinara and Daiya was put on top to be broiled. This Pi was beastly.

Countdown to Pi Dai (1)

Being a dropout math/engineering major, I still have a strong connection with 3.14, Pi Day, every year starting with my birth. Not knowing what Pi Day was on 3.14.1985, I still celebrated 3.14 every year. I don’t think my first sip of Beer was until 1989, probably not on 3.14, but usually (good) Beers are involved. I’m going to make various pies through March 14, 2017. Here is number one.

…is a Vegan play of food from the recipe Shepards Pie, commonly a meat dish. Let’s tear shit up with this one and kill so many different plants. If you consume plants, it does state that you (and I) hate plants. Therefore, I eat and murder so many plants. I do, however, LOVE animals and good health. I do not take part in animal consumption.

Slight oil and Garlic was heated to destroy diced Celery, Carrot and Onion. Balsamic Vinegar, Molasses, Bay leaves, Veggie Broth, with seasonings (Sugar, Salt, Pepper, Paprika & Garlic Powder) were cooked down for a good while before being blended (after Bay leaves were removed:)

Protein was prepared for the base of this wonderful activity. Along with protein was fiber. Without any blood clotting properties, I pan-fried Sunflower Seeds (unsalted), Tempeh, Red Beans, Lightlife ‘beef’, Tomato, Onion, Celery, Carrot and similar seasonings.

Chunky Ⓥashed Potatoes

Baked potatoes were chopped and mixed with simmering Almond Milk, chopped Avocado, Tofu, Salt, Pepper, Garlic & Onion Powder, Cayenne and then later Instant Mashed Potatoes, Daiya, Fakin’ Bacon and Scallions.

MacNDaiya Pasta Pie

:Step Two

Whiteout Chili MacNDaiya

I’m a lazy ass usually. I used dough in a can. It’s good, quick and easy. Earth Balance ‘butter’ was used to ‘butter’ my pan followed by the unleashed dough. Whiteout Chili MacNDaiya engulfed the center of that panned dough and was baked slowly. Wrapped in aluminum foil, I stored this beauty in the fridge for a later day.

I unwrapped my panned greatness and turned the oven on low. Like 225 degrees low. Daiya, yellow and white, were combined with crumbled Cauliflower to top this animal-product-less BEAST.

Evolution of recipes is the greatest thing ever. Don’t let it die until it’s dead. Please, don’t kill anything. Plants must die. And that is all.
