Foods of the Week
This is simply - Cooked Quinoa with Black Beans, Corn, a handful of Hemp Hearts/Hemp Seeds, and I stirred in Salsa that I cooked down and added some Agave Nectar.
This was a large batch that lasted me two days! This is one of my favorites the more and more I make it and eat it!
It totally hit the spot! I had some fresh squeezed Lemonade, too! YUM!
1 tea Ginger (powder)
2 T Miso
2 T Rice Vinegar
1/4 C Grapeseed Oil
1 C or less of Water
I'm pretty excited about this attempt! I loved the creaminess of the Avocado, the sweetness of the Carrots, and the vinegar notes, with a gentle hint of saltiness from the Miso!
I used Pepper Jack Daiya Cheese and added some Soy Milk. I froze the mixture and then TRIED to make 'sticks' out of them. When that didn't work I ended up 'rolling them' into BALLS instead. The Cheesy Mixture in with Vegan Bread Crumbs. I then used a little bit of Wildtree Chili Grapeseed Oil (it's now discontinued) from my stash to 'fry' them. I just did them in a frying pan. They were creamy, cheesy, crunchy spicy, and tasty for a vegan "cheat" food.
Here is a photo of one of them 'cracked open' showing the inside!
They were a treat - I wouldn't do them often because I technically 'fried' them but still...on a rare occasion...these were fun!
So...what kind of foods did you experiment with this week!? What are some of your favorite things to throw together from frig/cupboard/pantry to bowl on a whim? What are some of your 'cheat' foods? Have a great weekend!
