In My Kitchen - February being so late! And I don't know if I am breaking the rules or not but I'm starting this post off with an item that I REALLY enjoyed the past few months and have run out of recently! This is definitely a restock-able item the next time I get to Trader Joe's! It's their Vegetable Masala Burger and it's VEGAN. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the flavor of these. The first ingredients listed is Potatoes and they are marvelous! I wasn't even able to eat these as an actual 'burger' - I ate them plain. I just cooked them in a pan on the stove top with a little bit of Grapeseed Oil and it was spot-on AWESOME! I think that by putting it between a bun you might lose some of the flavor. Don't quote me on that but I am FINE with the way I ate it stand-alone! I already told my husband I will stock up on them next time!
One of the many tea companies I was introduced to this past month was Tea At Sea. They don't have a HUGE selection of teas (yet) but they are doing a LOT of things RIGHT! I really LOVE the little "press kit" promotional visual they included in my mailing! It looks a lot like this...it was a half of a Wine Cork for the base with a tooth pick for the 'body' and a heavy duty paper that you clipped on for the sail! Very nice! I was able to sample both their Black Tea as well as their Oolong Tea and both were lovely.
I always have GARLIC in the house...whether it's actual Garlic Cloves and Bulks or Minced Garlic in the Frig or powder even. I almost always have Lemon Juice in the house, too, but I just ran out of it with the Raw Vegan Burgers I made Sunday Night. 2 flavors I have been using more than usually as of late have been both CURRY and TURMERIC. Not only the flavors I have been craving but the nutritional benefits of each. PLUS...with this horribly cold winter we are having it just makes sense to consume them both!
McDougall's Vegan Soups. I bought them because they were on sale. They aren't a new-to-me-product but I don't necessarily buy them often either...unless they are on sale. I especially like the lower sodium offerings because I'm not a salty foods fan - generally speaking. All of the soups I have tried I have liked. I see there is a Tamale one that I have tried but want to. Those are just a few things that have been popular in my kitchen this past month! How about you!?
