Oh, hai!! This post is going to jump around quite a bit b/c I just organized my “Foodz” picture folder and uploaded a few new creations. So you’ll get a tour of noms past and present… but let’s start with the most recent nom and work our way back. I suppose if we’re getting technical the last thing I ate was a Peanut Butter Banana Cookie which Liv from PoorCollegeVegan baked using a recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking. They are so tasty! Before that we went to Saffron Patch, a local Indian restaurant. It was my 2nd time ever experiencing Indian cuisine and I was much more pleased this time around. Liv got her favorite dish, Chana Masala, and I got the Vegetable Korma in a cashew cream sauce. Both were served with saffron rice and we also got an order of bread (not naan) that was made with potatoes and green peas… it was very interesting and very delicious, all of it! I’m excited about my leftovers… 🙂 Now let’s look at some pics. My lunch today was what I like to call a Lazy Man’s BLT. Since I don’t have (and don’t particularly *like*) tempeh bacon or Smart Bacon – I used to LOVE Morningstar’s fake bacon… but it’s so not vegan – I used soy bacon bits on this sammie. Tee hee. It was good.
Remember that broccoli salad that made me all warm in my giblets?? Well, folks. I did make more. Inhaled more. (And psst… I have another bunch of broccoli and unopened jar of Veganaise waiting to be transformed into a THIRD batch… but shhh, don’t tell anyone). I shall include the recipe which my mother found. It. Is. Bomb.
1 1/2 cups Veganaise
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar (I used rice)
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup soy bacon bits
- Chop broccoli into bite sized florets.
- Combine Veganaise, brown sugar, and vinegar in a separate bowl.
- Pour mixture over broccoli florets and pine nuts and mix until coated.
- Reserve raisins and soy bacon bits until just about to serve, then mix in thoroughly.
- Bring an extra pair of panties.
Below is what I usually stick with on cold mornings: a hot bowl of oatmeal. Sometimes I sprinkle tasty shit on top, like walnuts. That’s just how I do.
