It’s Wednesday, folks, and you know what that means – it’s time to take a look at what I’ve been eating! It’s been a weird week, with rain, thunderstorms, and a few really nice days with very little humidity. I’ve been eating my usual salads and grilled sandwiches, with a few other things mixed in. Here’s what I’ve been eating:
Last week I had a marathon cooking session with Vegan Finger Foods by Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes. I made Sweet Potato Skins, Corn Fritters and Jalapeño Poppers all in one afternoon and we ate it all for dinner that evening. Every last bite of it was super delicious! Look for a book review on Chic Vegan soon.
Backyard Buffalo Caesar Ranch Salad from Terry Hope Romero’s Salad Samurai has been a regular in my date lately too. It’s so good that I just can’t get enough of it.
When grilling, we usually make veggie burgers, portobello peach sandwiches or kebabs, but we decided to try something new over the weekend. We grilled up tempeh and portobellos slices that had been slathered with homemade barbecue sauce and topped them with grilled onions and a slaw made from Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch mix. This was quite the epic sandwich.
There was some sangria to go along with our sandwiches.
One of my favorite desserts this summer has been a simple bowl of mixed fruit with cashew cream. The cream is so quick and easy to make in the Vitamix – I just mix together cashews, water, a date, and some vanilla powder or extract. I actually don’t even measure what I’m doing, but pretty much just eye-ball it. Cherries are my favorite fruit, and they pair perfectly with cashew cream.
We took a quick trip in NYC over the weekend and had dinner at Peacefood Cafe. We split an order of chickpea fries, Dennis had the monster cheeseburger and I had vegan crab cakes. Sadly, we were full after our meal and didn’t have room for dessert!
That’s what I’ve been eating. What have you been cooking up lately?
