From the cool, cloudy & rainy Sonoran Desert, MERRY CHRISTMAS. A hefty batch of Chili Acini was prepared and adored. Everyone makes Chili Mac… Let’s change it up, a bit.
Red Kidney Beans were cooked alongside a giant handful of Wild Rice. A Sicilian Chef introduced me the pasta Acini de Pepe enlightenment in preparing Italian Wedding Soup.
In extremely light Oil, Garlic, Onion, Celery and Carrots were pan-fried before drowning in Veggie Broth, chopped Peppers, ‘meat’ Crumbles and Corn.
A small portion of remaining Daiya was added with Ⓥ Cream. After cooking down briefly, the Pasta was added with Cilantro & chopped Tomatoes.
A Craft Beer and Bike Ride to garnish, HAPPY HOLIDAYS:)
Fruit is not in my food preparation routines, usually. However, these Vegan Belgian waffles have been making my mouth water at the local Sprouts, my home away from home (away from work:), every time they are spotted. A savory waffle sandwich will not be ruled out, in the future.
Organic Bananas were blended with Daiya ‘cream cheese’, Non Dairy ‘creamer’, Vanilla & light Sugar. After blending so cool, refrigeration was utilized while Waffle preparing took place. Keep Cool.
Three pre-made frozen Waffles were thawed in the oven before panfrying in Earth Balance. Quick & easy, the Waffles were plated, creamed and berried.
Happy Sunday Funday! I was craving a Ⓥ dawg last night and had a couple left over. Utilizing leftovers is a never ending fight in my food preparation practices. Also, an eggless Salad was left over from a previous post…
The (bicycle) wheels in my head proceeded to rotate. Google did help to visualize a Mexican-style hot dog. It sounded delicious if it were Ⓥegan. A bun of any sort was not utilized.
Instead of a boring bun, Corn Tortillas were sandwiched between Daiya. The Ⓥ Smart Dog was not wrapped with Smart Bacon. In the past months, I’ve been veering away from pretending to eat carnivorous. I still have much room for improvements with my pretend meat – style comfort foods.
Vegenaise, chopped Smart Bacon and eggless Salad were stuffed with the Smart Dog in the Daiya filled Corn Tortillas.
And you cannot forget the Cilantro.
In light Sunflower Oil, Garlic and Onion were sautéed before adding Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale. One sip was had before the remaining 15 ish ounces went into the pot. Stone Chipotle Mustard, Sea Salt and Garlic Powder were mixed in and cooked down.
Ⓥegan ‘cream’ was added into a boiling Beer stew. ‘cheddar’ Daiya was stirred in at a continuous high heat. Nutri Yeast and chopped Jalapeño complimented with frozen Ⓥegan Meatballs helped deliciousness to come one step closer.
Scallions were dropped in at the very end and Instant Mashed Potatoes to control consistency. Pretzel Hoagies were warmed and filled before being slightly toasted.
Sipping on a Bloody Mary, munching on the Bloody Mary marinated Celery and thinking of eating a Bloody Mary.
Many of Bloody Mary mixes contain Anchovies, but not all of them.
Rice concoction (Brown, Red, Wild & Quinoa), Corn, Black Beans and Pickles met Beyond Meat and a Vodka heavy Bloody Mary. This Patty was pan-fried, heavenly.
Daiya Cream was heated and utilized from another concept. Sauerkraut and Caramelized Onions complimented this beefless, Beefy sandwich.
Earth Balance lathered Whole Wheat Bread were pan-fried on one side, lightly, before being constructed with the slightly toasted sides platforming the amazing ingredients included with this sandwich.
Garnished with a Bike Ride and a couple of Beers, this sandwich was PERFECT.
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.
Raw texture and flavor between warmed Flour Tortillas were prepared, yesterday, after a bicycle ride.
Green & Red Peppers were chopped and mixed with Onion, Tomato, Jalapeño, Vegan ‘parmesan’, Daiya, Olive, Mustard and Vegenaise.
Spinach and Avocado helped complete the raw deliciousness of these uncooked veggies.
