Vancouver Food Trucks Roundup#1 — veggiezest

Posted on Updated on

From Veggie Zest!

Living in cow country(Texas), I am so jealous.  We are starting to see cities with food trucks around the state.  However, vegetarian?  I think we are going to have a little bit of a wait for those.

At least restaurants are much more vegetarian friendly these days.  When we moved here we were lucky to get a Cesar’s salad without the meat.  I would ask for a vegetarian entree for dinners and receptions and get boiled vegetables.  Yuck!

I was at a banquet recently, where my main entree was a delicious tofu dish.  Times are a changin’!

 

Enjoy!

SO here is a post about all the food trucks you see lingering around the streets of Vancouver. This is the first roundup of some of the trucks – I have listed four of them with vegetarian options. Over a period of time I am going to do more posts with food trucks. Hope you […]

Banana & Chocolate cake with a dark chocolate fudge frosting —

Posted on

From 1000 Jars!

I don’t know about you, but I always have a bunch of ripe bananas.  Some are so ripe that they will be mush in their peels.  These are the best bananas for baking too!  Here is a great recipe that combines bananas and fudge frosting.  How much better can you get!

 

Enjoy!

There is nothing I love more than finding overly ripe bananas in our fruit bowl. I know it might sound odd, but it is a rare occurrence in our household as we seem to get through bananas like there is no tomorrow! Instead of making a banana bread loaf, I decided to use them to […]

Fire Roasted Salsa — I WANT TO COOK THAT

Posted on

From I Want To Cook That!

The first time that I ever ate fire roasted tomatoes was at a international food fair.  It was a bruschetta.   I thought that I had died and gone to heaven.  The intensity of the tomatoes with a smoky undertone.  I loved it.  I loved it even more when I found out that these were canned tomatoes.  I could use them anytime of the year.

Here is a great salsa recipe to make.

 

Enjoy!

Thai basil tofu

Darn it!  I am still trying to get organized with being a mom again!  It’s worth it though!  Marcos is wonderful!  We are having so much fun together(along with a few hiccups!)  And I am laughing a lot more these days 😎

Here is a post I did a year ago.  It’s become a favorite for Jim and I.  I love the sauce.  And I always have basil in the yard.

 

Enjoy!

Darn it!  This looks so good and I want to eat it right now!  Unfortunately, I have to go to a pot luck and won’t be able to try this until tomorrow!  Another way use up my basil.   Great pho…

Food Porn Corner, Vol 26 — Beats & Burgers

You know how you make a dish and you have to open a can to use part of it for an ingredient?  Well!  We love artichoke frittatas.  I used canned artichokes, but always have some left that end up sitting in the refrigerator until I finally remember to use them in a salad.  The problem is that they never taste as good as when they are an ingredient that blends with other ingredients.

I made a frittata the other day and have half the can sitting in the fridge just waiting to be gobbled up.  I saw recipe and it looks so good!  The only change I am going to make is to use shredded mozzarella instead of balls!

Enjoy!

Kashmiri Dum Aloo Biryani — MyYellowApron

Posted on Updated on

From The Blog My Yellow Apron.

I never really liked Indian food until I became a vegetarian.  All I had eaten as a meat eater was tandoori chicken.  Once I became a vegetarian, a whole new world opened up for me.  I became aware of how much I hadn’t tried before. 

Indian dishes were one of these things.  India is a BIG country and so has a wide variety of regional and traditional cuisines native to India. This is all influenced by soil type, climate, culture, ethnic groups and occupations. Each region has a cuisine that varies a lot from the other regions as they use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables and fruits. Indian food is also heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices and traditions.  Like I said; India is a BIG country!

So here is an aloo(potato) dish that I love.

Enjoy!
