Ⓥanana Cream Waffles w/ Bluberries

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…

C286352D-FAB1-456C-AA76-DBE0738D8337_1_105_cDD8AFFDB-D03B-4FFE-891B-26B76BB7E253_1_105_c75B0CEA6-6922-419B-8711-8748EF726F16_1_105_cEFC16BD4-1168-4015-8E70-E9E55E0623D9_1_105_c

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.

3BA9AD52-6CCE-4E7B-9CEC-DE5993342A95_1_105_cA9CC1670-C38A-469F-92D1-80C652C810B2_1_105_cEBE95A52-3617-488A-922A-3FD1ADE0364B

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.

Ⓥ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.

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.

BBQ Portobello Burger

In the Arizona Desert, activity is common in the mornings and evenings to utilize daylight and (somewhat) comfortable conditions. Walking with a beer, I find a prickly tree to set my beer on to check in online.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_11426

The food ideas flood my mind like a flash-flood.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_11448

BBQ Sauce, Craft Mustard, Chipotle and Veggie broth were mixed to create my mushroom sauce. The Portobello Cap was drenched with sauce in and out, above and below a hot oven.
