Pizza, Meatballs, Burgers...

Ashley had this really great idea of making a meatball pizza. I bought some vegan non-meatballs from whole foods and whipped it up. It was very tasty, but I guess I didn't take a picture. The next day, I made another one, but substituted half the flour for almond flour and folded it in half to form a calzone.

This next one is kind of ridiculous, I basically dumbed a bunch of root vegetables and [fake] chicken onto a pizza crust.

I made another recipe from Veganize This!. That book is so awesome, I love it. Here are some mini hamburgers with micro fries.

Straight out of the Veganomicon is some Spicy Tempeh and Messy rice.

Today I was feeling pretty lazy, so I walked across the street and grabbed a deluxe veggie from Papa Murphy's, served with some local Kombucha.

Crab Cakes YUM

On my way out of the library (public libraries are awesome), my peripheral vision picked up the word "Vegan" and my arm reached out in a knee-jerk reaction. The book is Veganize This by Jenn Shagrin and had no idea how much it would rock. Here's a picture of the Vegan Jumbo Lump Jackfruit Crab Cajes with Spanish Garlic Mayonnaise and Warm Saffron Nage. This woman is a genius.

Wow, I am a MoFo'n slacker! Here's what managed to make it behind the lens over the past several days.

On Thursday I swung by Trader Joe's, which is right near where Miss M takes her art class. I wanted to make Friday a super-lazy cooking day. I know she loves waffles, and our waffle maker has uses, so I grabbed the house-brand Gluten-Free kind, knowing that she wouldn't be down with the multi-grain variety. It was a wild success the next morning.

For lunch I made a green curry tofu for Ash & I. Actually, I threw this stuff in a pot, tossed in some cubed tofu and had the rice cooker doing it's thang. It was about as simple as I could do it. I have that little voice in me that reminds me of all the packaging I'm wasting when I don't buy stuff fresh or from the bulk section, but I was able to turn it off long enough appreciate the deliciousness of it.
We went to a really awesome sushi place across the street from our house, but I didn't take pictures! Yeah, I know, cool story... 

On Saturday we had our first adult party at the house! The kids were at the grandparents and we had a smashing good time. I was able to capture this pizza before it was near-instantly devoured. It's baby spinach, kalamata olives, roasted garlic and Beyond Meat Chicken-Free Strips, which are dope.


That's some sort of yogurt dip that I didn't touch.
To cap off the weekend Ash and I went to a place nearby called the Sharazad (warning: link has music). We ordered a platter without whatever it was that had beef in it, seasoned french fries and falafel sandwiches. My favorite thing was to dip the falafels in the chili walnut paté stuff. I really enjoyed it overall. We needed to leave before we were able to check out the market half of the building, so I would definitely like to go back.

Excuse the odd formatting. Thanks for checking it out, I'll be back soon!

Pizza Party!

Yesterday was my birthday and Ashley made me a most wonderful fruit pizza pie. 

So I returned the favor my making a falafel sandwich pizza.

For lunch today I made us some bbq tamari tempeh & tomato sandwiches, but they were devoured before I thought of documenting them.

I missed October 1st!  

I went to Warrensburg today and had lunch with a friend. He supplied the spring mix and carrots, I brought the red bell peppers, green onions, cucumbers, pumpkin seeds and I made some miso-tahini dressing. It was very satisfying.

Vegan MOFO!!!!

Oh yes. Time to dust off the ol' blog and get it ready for another Vegan MoFo! I'll be back here with the scoop on October 1st.

I thought about having a healthy theme for this month, but we'll see how it goes. What I will do is document vegan food, with some recipes and tidbits sprinkled around.

Since the last time I posted, lovely little Iris came into this world and she is now 5 months old. We've been hanging out a lot since then.

Pesto, double tomato & avocado with apple & kale chips.

I decided to make some pasta for the first time the other night. I picked up some semolina flour and followed this recipe. It's so easy and yummy! I roasted some brussels sprouts and added tomato, olive oil, basil, garlic and salt. I will definitely be doing some of this in the future.
