#1545736 The Spicy Meatless Thread... (ya I went there)

Lol. I love it. 

Boss, the patty at White Castle was not nearly as red as the one you had, it really did have the texture like cooked through ground beef though and it tasted pretty good with that smoked cheddar.  Honestly the texture was almost too cooked ground beefy because mentally i thought i was going to bite into one of those pieces of ground beef fat and lose my appetite. I seriously thought that someone was messing with me and gave me a beef patty (the patties for the impossibly silders are the size of 3 regular slider patties)...  

Here's a pic from the innerwebz that looks like mine did (I inhaled mine too fast, it was my 16 hr fasting break meal and post workout... )

Select White Castle locations in NYC, Jersey, and Chicago are serving up Impossible Burger sliders.  I tried 'em out today.  They come with a smoked cheddar cheese, and I know I've been trying to avoid cheese, but holy cow I want to eat a crave case of those things.

The restaurant took the pic, so the props is for them.  GIP those are vegan sausages, here's the link from the company that makes them: http://beyondmeat.com/products/view/beyond-sausage-brat 

  • The Hot Italian, topped with peppers, onions and hot mustard
  • The Sweet Italian, with sweet caponata relish and Italian parsley
  • The Bratwurst, served with sauerkraut, caramelized onions and parsley

 

My friend got the inside scoop from Beyond last night (at that bar). They are apparently going for a big push to get the sausages in stores and restaurants around Chicago (sausage capital of the US?), and I am totally ok with that.  I don't usually go outta my way for the vegetarian replacement meals much anymore, but to go to a place(especially a sports bar) and have the option of something veggie that isn't a salad, some fried appetizer, or black bean burger is always nice.  And it's a great alternative to bring to summer BBQs when everything revolves around the grill.

HOLY MOLY! The bar down the street from me just started carrying these last night.

They serve a variety of good ole beef burgers, but they also already have a dressed up Beyond burger and deep fried vegan tacos! They are a sports bar too, which you may think ok well that's normal, but I live in a (now) trendy, hipster neighborhood that is anti tv's in bars for whatever reason. My go to dive bar that had TVs and cheap beer was bought out and shortly there after shut down like 4 years ago.  This new place has an outdoor patio with fireplaces and they already love my dogs.... I've found my new home guys. *wipes a tear of joy off cheek*

Look awesome GIP! I'm not about to be the food police here, but if anyone asks cheese/dairy/eggs qualifies as vegetarian.  People who don't eat anything that comes from animals or use anything that "exploits" animals (like honey or wearing leather) call themselves vegan.  I just like to eat plants.  +1 for Dee-Roo sauces... so good, need to get more ASAP.

Ive made some variation of your tuscan beans four or five times now. Its become one of my favourite meals of late.

I plan on making it again tomorrow! Its so simple and quick.  Tuscan beans with a green veggie and grains, and black bean burrito bowls are two go to meals here.  Quick, easy, and delicious. 

 

 

On to this morning's brunch....

 

I've cut out eggs from my at home diet, which has been a lot harder than dairy for me.  I used to love egg tacos for breakfast.  Today I finally think I concocted a replacement.  I've been playing with soyrizo tacos, mixing the soyrizo with different veggie friends to get a nice filling taco.  They've all been good but not quite where I wanted it to be.  Most the time I cook up soyrizo and potato( different types of potatos too).  I've tried adding vegan cheese (which i think is weird), and beans at different times. Today though, on a whim I added green peas.  The slight change pushed this taco filler to another level for me. My new go to morning-ish tacos from this day forward will be soyrizo, red potato, onion, and green peas.  It was so good I almost left out the tortilla.  I topped the tacos some salsa, cilantro, and Valentina's muy picante extra hot sauce.

:drooling:  That looks sooooo good. I love Indian food.  It is a bit pricey in my neighborhood, but further north of me there's a street full of Indian places (grocery stores, restaurants, clothing, etc.) and everything there is pretty affordable.  I love going there for the buffets... now i'm hungry.

The best falafel is green inside, lots of parsley... when it's yellow too much chick pea and dense. 

I add turmeric to mine though so they're almost neon.

I like to juice bunches of parsley. My dog likes to eat the stems, makes her breath smell nice.  I've been adding parsley to my salads and such because it is such a nice, economical herb.

Tuscan white beans, lemon garlic white wine asparagus, and tabouli salad.  The Tuscan beans are where its at, super simple, garlic, a tomato, add as much spice as you want, parsley and some water. Salt and bp, and then threw the skillet in the broiler to finish off.

Vegan Broccoli "cheese" soup with some homemade bread.  The soup gets the cheese/cream from raw cashews and nutritional yeast flakes.  There is a cup of plant based milk in there (I use an almond-cashew milk that is fortified with pea protein).  I had it with powder last night but today i might put a little sauce in it instead.

Black Bean Taco Salad with a homemade honey chipotle vinaigrette. The tortilla chips are actually made from beans too, they're called Beanitos.  There's cilantro lime rice at the bottom, romaine and spinach, a can of black beans cooked with onion and garlic and seasoned with GIP's smoked serrano powder among other things, sliced tomato and avocado, frontera salsa, pepitas and the dressing.  Definitely a staple meal here, have it almost once a week. It'll fill you up and you can play around with whats in it to make it a little different.  Sometimes I roast bell peppers or poblanos, or add soyrizo, or sweet potatoes. The dressing is killer too.  I use this recipe as a base, but for some reason never have red wine vinegar so I use a combo of balsamic and acv.

Another quick after training dinner.  Morningstar chipotle black bean burger that I found in bulk at Sam's club.  They're way bigger patties than the ones in the grocery store.  And since I'm going to get a sports nutrition certification this year Imma be tellin' ya'll about macros when i can for some of my meals.  These burgers are 190 cals, 7 g fat, 22 carbs (8 fiber, 2 sugar), and 17 g protein.  It is pretty perfect for an after workout meal with the carbs and protein in there.   I prettied up my burger with avocado, tomato, romaine, alfalfa and garlic sprouts, and a chipotle aioli on a sesame seed bun.
