Good Eats From The Week

Check it. I'm a bit behind on blogging. I don't have the blogging prowess of my wife, Sheridan - Vegan in Arkansas - or our good friend Bianca - Vegan Crunk - so I'm posting about a few dishes Sher and I have enjoyed over the past few days. We cook awesome vegan adventures nearly every night, and the following were particularly scrumptious. Here we go. Boom.

Eggplant SPAGHETT Explosion: We breaded and fried some eggplant from my father's garden, laid them on a bed of whole wheat spaghetti, generously sprinkled on some Daiya mozz, and poured on some doctored up jar sauce. This dish was so freakin tastey i couldn't wait to come home from work the next day and gobble it down for lunch. Reheating it was amazing. I would eat this in my dreams.

Man,  I don't even know what this is. But i'm sure it was awesome. I think it was one of our grain bowls with roasted veggies. Now that it's fall, we are trying to get produce that is thriving at this time of harvest, and this bowl is a creation of pure, unadulterated pleasure. Butternut squash, cauliflower, and onions (probably) and some o' dis and some o' dat. Mmmmm.....

If you're a dude, you know what I'm talking about when I say "WINGS!" I don't miss the carnage, but the flavor of buffalo wings is one of my favorite things in the world. I would totally use a Buffalo flavored Scope if they made it. This is one of my favorite quick and easy meals: Buffalo Fickin Salad. Gardein is a fantastic source of fake meat products, and they make a mean buffalo chicken. What we do is, simply fry up the fake chicken as per directions provided, and top on a mixed green salad with assorted veggies. The we drizzle on some Franks, which is a staple in the sauce department, and accompany the salad with a dollop of Annie's Goddess Dressing. EAT IT!!

Chickpea Cutlets, or Garbanzo Grillers, as I like to call 'em, are a regular go-to at our pad. It's an easy recipe to follow and fun to make. The trick, I have found when making faux meats, is to smack it around a bit. Really get your hands dirty and slap it. SLAP IT. It's fun, and I think it gives it the necessary texture. Steam a bit of kale and snag a buffet of sauces, and BOOM, you gotta a great meal. It's comfort food, it's healthy, it's vegan. How can you not love all of those things!?
