I'm still alive!  Man that pic in the last post I made looks gross.... 


I've been making some neat stuff lately, but I've also just started training hard again, so after 2 hours of jiu jitsu and a bike rides there and back there is no time for pictures of food! 

Today I settled down a little and made a random concoction.  Sliced up some yellow bell pepper, brussels sprouts, onion and sautéed it, seasoned with garlic powder a squeeze of lemon, smoked paprika, and black pepper. Then added sliced up morning star bacon, rice with a squirt of liquid aminos, and topped it with a fried egg and some minced up nhu peppers (the spider mite infested plant actually podded up and ripened!!!)


It was pretty dang good for a what do I have in the fridge to throw in the pan kinda thing.  




Hope everyone else is well! I thought I had some pictures hiding in my phone of other stuff I made, like the palak paneer tofu I made a couple nights ago, but I guess when I'm tired after class I don't hold the button down right?  I dunno.

Tahitian Treat is far superior to Hawaiian Punch.  That shit was the bomb.  They also made Cactus Cooler!

I haven't posted in a while, even though I've been cooking regularly I've been pretty busy.  By the time the food is made I eat it up and get back to work.  Tonight I used as a prep night and made 3 batches of spicy bhut seitan sausage and a batch of (jun) kombucha.  I had hoped the sausage would be ready for dinner but it took longer than anticipated, so I totally randomly decided to make shredded brussel sprout spring rolls.  I had seen a recipe for ginger-shredded brussel sprout potstickers, but spring rolls seems a tad healthier to me, and I could add things to make it more hearty.  Filling is onion, shredded brussel sprouts, garlic, ginger, balsamic, soy sauce, a healthy dose of DeeRoo's stir fry seasoning (sorry I can't recall the real name of it right now) and the unsteamed dough for a seitan sausage all cooked up.  Then I turned the heat off and shredded in carrot, turmeric, radish, and chopped cilantro.  Scrambled some eggs threw them into the mix, then did my best to wrap it all up.  Made a soy sauce-rice vinegar dipping sauce and buon appetito!  Rolling them felt like I was doing ok but then they weren't as tightly packed when I was finished.  Still edible by hand though.  Anyway, here's the photo, sorry they don't look restaurant quality pretty, and my kitchen (lets be honest, my life right now) is a mess, but they tasted great.

I like veggie burgers but not as meat replacement, I just like them as their own thing. Made to taste good and not mimic anything. Have had some really good ones in fact. Like, there's nothing wrong with a patty with roasted corn and butternut squash, as long as you don't expect beef! But these will help satisfy that.

Totally agree with this.  I like veggie patties because they are veggie patties.  I've always been turned off by ground meat so burgers, sausage, meatballs/meat sauce etc was never my jam.  The veg versions though I really enjoy because they  aren't ground meat.  I live with a vegetarian though who loved meat so we try the substitute stuff when we see it (my favorite fake meat thing from the grocery store are morningstar corndogs....).

Your thoughts?  I've had their Beast burger.  It tasted fine but it was still a veggie burger.  It's not going to convince a meathound not to eat meat thats for sure.
