I found this interesting blog on Reddit a while back. I took one look and decided then and there that I would make and devour this carrot cake. Unfortunately, I got sick the next day and it lasted for two weeks. As soon as I felt up to it though, I made this amazing cake and enjoyed it until the last bite.
I have heard that soy curls are great in sweet and sour sauce, but that seemed boring to me so I used something different. However, the great thing about this recipe is that you can use any flavor or seasoning you want, and it’s super cheap, especially compared to take out.
Today is the day that I go through the refrigerator and see what I can come up with before anything spoils. I make meal plans every week and sometimes I end up not using all of the ingredients when it comes down to it, and sometimes these can add up to the tastiest meals of the week. I made one today that was so satisfying I wanted to share the wealth. I know salads are expected from a vegan kitchen, but I believe this one is a star.
Okay, so I pretty much blew my own mind with this one. I was brain storming the other day thinking about how my cheese always slides off of my burger. I thought about it and a spark happened in my noggin noodle. Put the cheese inside the patty. It will be delicious, surprising and it will keep my burger from sliding around. I then learned it’s already been done with beef patties.. so I wasn’t as smart as I thought I was. Still an awesome idea, though. It worked just like I had dreamed.
When I was younger my mom made these huge meat balls that were easily one of my favorite meals that she ever created. Every time she cooked them I went nuts. She didn’t have to call me to dinner and beg me to eat, I was in the kitchen with a fork ready to go. I haven’t had them in years, and I never ate any other meat balls besides her’s. I was such a loyal child. For my birthday this year I wanted to recreate her old recipe. I also wanted it in a sandwich, because I never ever got to eat a meat ball marinara, and well, it’s too late to order one up now. What I came up with worked incredibly well the first time, so I thought I’d go ahead and share.
Whenever I make this, usually on Friday, it lasts the whole weekend. Pasta Salad has always been one of my favorite quick dishes. I’ve always thought it was delicious. I’ve always made it with at least a minimum of 5 vegetables, but this time I got carried away and just kept adding veggies. Turned out delicious.
I have made this rice pilaf several times, and every time I have paired it with something different. It is great by itself, with beans on top, or even along side some BBQ seitan. I love it because 1) it automatically stretches any meal to save some money and 2) it has vegetables scattered throughout.
