What’s cookin’…

 

A fav vegan meal:

  • Brown rice & Black beans
  • Green beans
  • A lot of Avocado

I spice up boring Brown rice:  using both fresh and powdered spice – 1/2 t of IOnion, Garlic, Sazon, Tumeric, Black pepper. I hold back on salt since the mixed Spanish spice both contain salt. Saute 1 small onion in 1T of extra virgin olive oil (I used Carbonell, it’s 100% pure olive oil from Spain – really good flavor.

For my Black beans (one 16 oz can of beans) – add all of the above plus my homemade sofrito, 1 chopped medium potato, 1T tomato paste, cumin/comino, and 1 bayleaf.

Yes, to sesame seeds…

My latest great find:

Excellent tahini mix: Barron Tahini – pure ground sesame – $12/2 16 oz jars, on Amazon.

Easy prep: add equal amount water to mixture, add 1 clove of garlic, 1-2 T of fresh Lemon juice, salt & blend. Some add parsley. It can be made thicker by using less water. Perfect dressing for falafel salad, green salad, celery, cukes, etc.

While eating gluten free is not a choice for me, I am choosing vegan eating as well. Naturally, it’s a challenge… I’ve always loved cheese – meat, nah, never been a fan of it.

Thankful for all of the options, blogs, etc. which make it easier.
