I took the medium-sized sweet potato and cooked it. I then took about 1 to 1 and a half cups of Black Beans and put both ingredients into my Ninja. I made it smooth and added a little bit of Wildtree's Garlic Galore. It was AMAZING! LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Will for sure be making this again! I also tried a bit with a little Daiya Shreds in there and warmed to melt. Both ways were totally YUMMY!
I've posted about my "Guacamole Attempts" before and I ended up making some last weekend as well! I didn't really make it any special way - just used two Avocados with Wildtree's Guacamole Seasoning. Just thought I would share another photo, really!
Another thing I made this past week was Buffalo Chickpeas. Everyone once and a while I miss the "Buffalo" Spices in things and have been tinkering with some ways to use the kicky flavor in veganized dishes. Since I can't get enough Chickpeas I decided to try the two together. I took about 1/4 C of Veganese, 3 or 4 T of the now discontinued Wildtree Chipotle Hot Sauce, a few pinches of Celery Salt, and 1/2 tea of Wildtree Dill Dip Blend and mixed well. This is even better the 2nd day as left overs!
I'm REALLY trying to eat bananas! As many of you know - it's the ONLY fruit I don't like! Seriously! I hate the smell! I don't like the taste or texture...they just freak me out! But I know they are wonderful offerings of the Earth and I wish I did like them! So I decided to try and do a Vegan Ice Cream Cake. For this bottom layer I took 2 C of Cashews, 1 Banana, 1 C of Dates, 1/2 tea Vanilla Extract, and Almond Milk into my Ninja until smooth. For the top layer I used 1 C of mixed blueberries and blackberries, about a handful of strawberries, 1 C of Almond Milk, 1 C of Dates, into my Ninja until Smooth. I poured both layers in a large glass bowl and froze it overnight. The next day I tried it and it does have potential but it also still tasted very banana-E to me. You could put more fruit on top or Vegan Chocolate Syrup which I might try next time. I am happy with my first attempt at this and VERY pleased that I forced myself to eat something with bananas in it!
Wow fun eats! The dip sounds insanely delicious!!!!ReplyDelete
The cake looks pretty fab too =)
Thanks! The Bean Dip paired with the Sweet Potato was so easy and so yummy!Delete
The garbanzo beans look good. I've been meaning to make something with them for a while so many other delicious whole foods to play with that I haven't gotten around to using them.ReplyDelete
I say if you don't like bananas why force yourself to eat them? The nutrients found in them can easily be found in another fruit or vegetable.
I hope your weekend is going well. I received my hand held steamer last evening and like the steam mop it does an impressive job lifting up ground in grime. Armed with my steamer, white vinegar and baking soda the ground in grime didn't stand a chance, heh. ;)
I have been eating Chickpeas multiple times a week lately! LOVE LOVE LOVE them! The older I get - the more I LOVE them!Delete
Very true about the bananas! I might try them in smoothies or something like that! I used to like Banana Nut Bread so I might try a vegan equiv down the road!
So great o hear about your steamer! Woot!
Chickpeas - we just boil, a bit of salt added, and eat like that. May need a pressure cooker or slow cooker to get it real soft and nice. Nice ice cream cake there! Oooo...I love bananas but then again, we have many varieties here and if I'm not mistaken, they're nicer and sweeter than those in temperate regions like where you are.ReplyDelete
I bet those Bananas are much better - being local!! I'm jealous! But in a good way! LOL :)Delete
I've had Plantains in a few things - like Casseroles - that haven't been too bad :) Maybe I should look into them more!
Wow, the sweet potato mixture sounds wonderful! And the banana cake sounds awesome too! I just adore banana soft serve blender ice "cream".ReplyDelete
I really wished I LIKED Bananas! I do! MAYBE I will try smoothies instead :)Delete
