SouWe Jo Dawg

SouWe is short for Southwest and somewhat rhymes with sloppy. The Vegan SouWe concoction consists of Beyond Meat crumbles, Garlic, Corn, Black Beans, Peppers, Onion, Liquid Smoke, Water, Hot Sauce and Sea Salt/Pepper.

The Vegan Dawgs were lightly grilled before being tossed into  bun and slopped with the SouWe Jo greatness.

Beyond Meat is making incredibly meat-like meat substitutes. Personally, I enjoy trying them, but as I’ve mentioned before, staying away from these meat-like products is my goal. In a bigger picture, these products could sway the carnivores away from their norm and partake in healthier eating.

A Pita was placed in a pan and topped with the meatlessness and Mashed Potatoes and baked. And somewhat imitating a Shepherd’s Pie, this Pi was more hand friendly. And more animal friendly.

Veggie Broth, Sugar and Garlic Powder was stirred in and simmered for a bit before (store bought) Marinara was added. Cooked Black Eyed Peas were tossed in and this flavorful textured mixture was slow cooked for a few hours with Tofurky Italian Sausages in the chaos in this pot.

In Whole Wheat Buns, the marinated Sausages plopped into and topped with the Cajun/Creole – style Saucy greatness. Daiya partially covered this sandwich and then broiled lightly. Garnished with Parsley and a Smile, with simplicity yet complexity, this hit the spot.

My attempts over the last few years has been to ride ‘bulletproof’ bikes. I want to ride not repair on a RIDE. Pickle Juice and Pepper simmering. Pickles, Onion, Radish are sliced and mixed with Pickle Juice and pepper in a mixing bowl. Vegan Sausages are thrown into the simmering Juice with a Splash! They are heated and then grilled. As are the Whole Wheat Buns. Need I say more.

A multitool was brought. Two beers and one water were stowed. A pump, patch kit nor tube was not. Uber wasn’t the best at responding if they could fit a bicycle with. A beer was had. The water was salvaged (in survival mode-periodically sipped) and a trek home while pushing a Trek was experienced.

Quality Ingredients were key, here. Also, evolving leftover Potatoes into a spontaneously delicious soup was key (squared). Bread topped with Vegenaise, sliced Mushrooms and Daiya on one side & Vegenaise, Tempeh and Daiya on the other side were roasted and broiled with a good eye to become extremely melted. Paprika sprinkled on top before Iceberg Lettuce was stuffed between the two slices of greatness.
