Paella

PAELLA

Cinco Za Mayo

Its Cinco de Mayo! So what do we make? PIZZA! This was the first home made pizza dough I've ever made, and it took all day. Literally. I got up at 6:30 to begin the process of creating the stickiest messiest dough in the world. When I got home for my lunch break, the dough had risen to quadruple it's size. I punched it. When I got home at the end of the day, the dough risen again. I punched it. Then I tossed it like a mad man until perfectly round. I slapped it down on a stone and Sher topped it with sauce, Daiya, shrooms, green olives, bell peppers, onions, and thinly sliced tomatoes. It was scrumptious. 

Engrish Brekfirst

I haven't got much of a sweet tooth, so I often enjoy a savory breakfast. I would brush my teeth with sriracha if I wouldn't be breath punching everyone around me. So, this is a fairly regular morning meal Sher and I have~ it's based on a typical English breakfast of beans on toast. This is pinto beans and rye toast. I've thrown in some So Delicious Coconut Milk Vanilla Yogurt and a small glass of OJ. Eat it!

Cheese Steak Sammich

Cheese Steak! What I gotta do! We used Bianca's seitan recipe to create this awesome sandwich. huge fan. LOOK AT ALL THAT CHEESE AND STEAKY RADNESS! Double boom.

Lentil Burger Burrito

I'm back tracking a bit, but I think this is a Lentil Burger Burrito Sher and i made the night after we ate the awesome lentil burgers from PPK. We added sauteed shrooms and onions, rolled them up in whole wheat tortillas (Ole) and grilled them on a panini press. Topped with hot salsa and sprinkle of Daiya Mozz made this leftover meal a flippin punch in the face.

SPAGHETTI NO'S

video
Joel bought some little pasta o's and brought them over so we could make vegan spaghetti o's with meatballs. We were all totes stoked! We took them over to Kayce's when she made veggie kabobs. MIND BLOWING! Check out PPK for the recipe. Be sure your brain is strapped in tight.

Olive~Lentil Burgers & Baked Onion Rings

Sher whipped up these awesome olive-lentil burgers and baked onion rings. Joel came over and we utterly destroyed everything she created. With our mouths. And finally our stomachs. The entire process was a glorious experience. I arranged my plate with a trio of sauces; ketchup, sriracha, and yellow mustard. I love a buffet of sauces.  The meal's recipe came from the PPK website. check it. eat it. 

Tofu and Veggie Kabobs

My friend Kayce got a new grill because spring is finally here and she wanted to have a cookout. Fortunately, she wanted an all vegan grilling experience. While I was preparing the coals, Sheridan and Joel were juicing oranges and appels to make fresh fruit cocktails, and Kayce was chopping up a whole mess of veggies and cubing tofu. After drizzling with oil and a few spices, we threw the suckers on the grill and watched the magic begin. I knew the veggies would be good, but I had never put tofu on the grill before. I was surprised at the smokey flavor. The kabobs were delicious!
