As I was preparing today’s What I ate Wednesday post, I realized that my cooking hasn’t been very creative over the course of the past few weeks. I’ve been eating lot of my standard salads and grilled sandwiches. It could be because I’ve got quite a lot on my plate at the moment, so to speak, or it might have to do with the gorgeous weather we’ve been having. The dishes I cooked up last week weren’t very different from what I ate the week before, but they sure have were tasty.
The nice people at So Delicious recently sent me some of their new almond yogurt to try, and it really is so delicious! I’ve been eating it for breakfast with cherries, champagne grapes and toasted coconut.
I’ve fallen in love with Trader Joe’s tofu burgers, so I stocked up the last time I was there. We like to grill them and top them with peppers and summer squash. I’m pretty sure these are actually Wildwood’s veggie burgers, but they’re a whole lot cheaper in the Trader Joe’s packaging! I made my Raw Kale Slaw as a side, but used Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch mix instead of just kale.
I realize this dish looks almost identical to the one above it, but it’s totally different! This is a Grilled Eggplant Sandwich with a Caesar salad on the side.
Lunch is almost always a big salad, but I try to mix things up. This one is a Greek salad made with romaine, cabbage, carrots, pea shoots, cucumbers, tomatoes, chickpeas, pepperoncini peppers, olives, toasted pistachios, and lots of and lots of tahini dressing.
Well, sometimes lunch can also be a wrap. Seitan Gyros were in regular meal rotation a few years ago, but somehow fell out of favor. I recently came across some Uptons seitan and gyros were the first meal that came to mind. I’ll be sharing this recipe next month during Vegan MoFo. I served my sandwich with a side of kale chips.
Tacos Salads have also been part of my weekly menu this summer. The “meat” in this one is actually neat meat replacement.
That’s what I’ve been eating. What’s been on your plate recently?
