4 MISC Foods - Last Few Weeks

Because I have been so busy with several projects and I'm now behind with blog posts here I thought I would do some catching up over the next few days!  This post is focusing on a few of the foods I have been eating over the last few weeks that I haven't posted about YET.  Here you will see I have - basically - Taco Salad - in a soft shell bowl of sorts.  I don't remember what brand they were but I found them at a discount store and they didn't have any animal products in them so I thought I would give them a try and they were quite good!  I used 'greens', Red Bell Peppers, and a little Daiya Cheese sprinkled on top along with some Catalina-esque Dressing for a quick meal.

Sticking with the quick meals and snacks and comfort foods...I had some nachos a while back.  Two different types of Daiya was shreds and the other was slices that I broke up.  Then some hardy salsa on top corn chips!  YUM!  I don't like to rely on fake cheeses and try not to always have them on hand because of all the oils they have in them.  However, I don't want to waste what I do have when I do have it.  These photos were taken within about a 3 week span of time...and not all at once over a day or two if that makes sense!

Another quick snack or small meal I had recently were these crunchy beans that I found at a discount store.  They were pretty tasty!  And no animal products!  Usually the breaded items have milk and/or eggs in them but these didn't.  I decided to make a dressing and dipping sauce for them and it turned out really well!  Recipe...
1/4 C Wildtree Garlic Dipping Grapeseed Oil
2 T Dijon Mustard
1 T Balsamic Vinegar
1 T Agave

And I have no idea why I haven't posted this dish sooner...this was from a month ago!  Oh My!  An Eggplant Lima Bean Curry of Sorts...

1 Small Eggplant
1 Small Onion
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1 T Wildtree Garam Marsala
1 C Crushed Tomatoes
1/2 tea Ginger Powder
1/2 tea Cayenne
1 C Lima Beans

  1. What are those? Asparagus? So good even on its own - just boil lightly, so very sweet...but so so expensive here, can't grow in our tropical region...except maybe, up in the mountains.. :(

    1. They are gently breaded green beans - but now that you mention it they sort of do look like asparagus don't they!?

  2. Good looking eats - especially the taco salad.

  3. Great eats, lots of inspiring dishes here and agreed on the taco salad - yum!

    1. Thanks! Sometimes I think I could eat salads everyday and/or Tacos or Burritos! LOL

  4. I fell in love with eggplant while in Istanbul so I love trying new recipes using eggplant. Thank you so much for sharing this healthy and delicious dishes at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Blog Hop! I am pinning and sharing this!

    1. WOW! I'm envious of your world travels! How many countries have you been to now? Very Cool!
