Happy Saturday! Today's Vegan MoFo 'starter' is Lunch on the Go! Well, I do PLENTY of these because I'm often on the go during the week for work! Usually I will have a sandwich, pita pocket, wrap, salad, or veggies/nuts/seeds/fruits to munch on. Another thing I have done many times is any kind of veggie with various flavors of hummus!
Here you will see the last hummus I made at home and ate...Shriracha Hummus!
Here's the recipe:
2 C Chickpeas
2 C Chickpeas
1/2 t Cumin
1 Mini Red Bell Pepper
2 Cloves Garlic
2 T Tahini
1 T Lemon Juice
1 T Shriracha
Water if needed
Cayenne Pepper, Pink Himalayan Sea Salt to taste
Top with more Shriracha to taste
I eat a lot of salads. For Lunches and Dinner. Sometimes because it's all the restaurants offer that is vegan and sometimes its by choice because I really do love them regardless! What makes a great salad is 'eating the rainbow' but also a good dressing! I make a lot of my own. I'm sure we all do! Here's on that I made with carrots as the base a while back.
Because I have been making a lot of these Vegan MoFo posts based on what I have on hand in my pantry and cupboards I wanted to share with you this extremely simple, fun, and flavorful tip/trick I came up with the other night! Now that I know just how much I LOVE this I will be making it often so I have some on hand at all times!
I introduce to you...Pine Nut Parmesan!
I've done other vegan parm's before but this one 'takes the cake'! Here's what I did...
1 C Pine Nuts (Ground in a coffee or spice grinder)
3 T Nutritional Yeast
1/2 t Garlic Powder
1/2 t Black Sea Salt
That's IT and it really IS that AMAZING!
In case you were wondering what to do with this yummy sprinkle...here's an idea...
1 Small Sweet Onion
1 Small to Medium Zucchini
pan fried and topped with the Pine Nut Parm! YUMMO!
