#1459582 The Spicy Meatless Thread... (ya I went there)

Posted by Rawkstah on Yesterday, 10:52 PM

This was just a quick dinner to use up some stuff that was almost empty and some leftover salad, I was going for a shawarma-like wrap with tabouli. Buffalo Morningstar Chik'n patties cooked with some Arabic curry powder a friend gave me from her trip to Dubai.  Na'an bread, the salad, hummus, tahini, homemade toum, sambal (didn't have harrisa) and pickles. Gave the tabouli a protein punch with some chickpeas. And finished up a jar of spicy mango pickle with everything.

#1459440 [May 22] What are you working on this week?

Posted by Rawkstah on Yesterday, 03:07 PM

No plants this year for me after the spider mite situation.  I've got some spicy meals planned throughout the week.  Going all over the world with the cuisines, Middle East, Mexico, North Africa, and Jamaica.  I will try to take pics and post up if they turn out.  

 

Not hot pepper related but I'm going to see Ricky Gervais on Thursday.. super psyched.

Back to some basics

Soyrizo, onion, and egg tacos.  There's avocado hidden in there too, topped with valentina's, some romaine and cilantro.

Ahhhh ef. He got me. I actually despise ground meat. But the tofu part sounded so good. Also... day drinking so whoops for not reading close enough.

Woo a vegetarian entry.  As delicious as they all look, nowadays that's the one I'd order.

the recipe is in there, I'd imagine you can do it all the same and instead of steaming them put them in the smoker

For the last couple weeks I've been putting my OWs outside for a couple hours, pulling them in.  The last time I left them out a good 6-7 hours and pulled them in.  It's been pretty chilly here this past week so they haven't gone back out but the leaves are starting to yellow and fall off.  Any advice?

Not vegan, but still meatless.  Chilaquiles with poblano, kidney beans and an overcooked egg( :().

Vegan cornbread would be tuff for me. I love a drizzle of honey on hot buttered cornbread. I guess agave or maple syrup would work though

I ended up putting honey on mine eventually.

Vegan jambalaya made with some homemade spicy seitan sausage, smoked red savina powder, and both red beans and white beans.  Also whipped up some vegan cornbread which turned out much better than I had anticipated (sometimes I am still slightly skeptical of vegan baking).

My first time trying tamales. The masa has green onion and poblano in it.  The filling is onion, garlic, carrot, red bell, poblano, tomato paste, chipotles and the adobo sauce they came in, corn, green olives, black beans, and seasonings.  Youtube'd how to wrap them and did my best... I ended up with about 30 tamales, and STILL had stuff left so I made 2 layered casseroles and threw them in the freezer. Hopefully I can just bake them at a later date and everything will taste good.  The first batch of tamales I should have let steam a little more, the pic is from the first batch (also the first few that were wrapped so not particularly great at it yet). The kitchen was a mess and I wasn't going to take a picture but y'all would say it never happened. The next batch came out better, but man do I have a new found respect for the tamale guy.

I'm back with more vegetables! I made a veggie and seitan skillet meal.  Marinated some seitan pieces in a mustard and wine marinade (dijon and yellow mustard, some white wine, seitan broth, smoked hab powder, coriander, allspice, clove, and black pepper). Chopped up some cabbage, carrots, red potatoes, onion and mushrooms.  I put the seitan in the the  middle of the skilled and surrounded it with veggies.  Added a little broth to cook the veggies in, topped them with a swirl of the mustard marinade and put it in the over on ~350 for an hour and a half, covered with foil. Unfortunately cooking it in broth like that made the seitan soft so I pulled that and threw it on in a small skillet. Seasoned the veggies with a little garlic salt and smoked paprika, added some kidney beans and about a quarter cup of rice just because it was left over inthe fridge and let it sit in the oven while I dealt with the seitan.  After the seitan dried out a bit I put the rest of the marinade on it and threw it in the broiler for a couple min. Fresh parsley to top it off and a glass of Spanish wine.  In the end, it was fantastic.

Made a "fish filet" type sandwich tonight.  I wanted it to be more like McDonald's but decided to go a bit healthier after pot pies 2 nights in a row... Here's the base recipe.  My usual disclaimer to only peeking at recipes and never following all the directions.  I made the tartar the regular way with mayo and dill pickles, the slaw I added a fresh pepper from on of my OWs.  Cheddar cheese melted on the bottom bun.  Sweet potato oven fries for the side.  Flavor wise it was good, not what I was expecting, more like a tuna melt really than a filet of fish, I should have figured that.  Dude ate 3 of them so I guess they tasted ok to him.  If you have tartar sauce on hand already the patties are pretty simple and hold together well.

Vegan pot pies!

 

The filling is seitan, onion, garlic, carrots, celery, potato, mushroom, and green peas cooked up in OO and some liquid aminos (soy sauce). Drizzled some white wine over it and dijon mustard. Then I coated everything with chickpea flour, sage, thyme, bp, smoked hab, smoked paprika, and a dash of white pepper. Added the broth that I cooked the seitan in and soy milk and let that get all good together.  I cheated an used premade pastry puff (pilsbury's is vegan if that matters to anyone).  Still took forever to make the meal. I admit to not having great time management due to anxiously awaiting the 2016 Cubbies Home Opener/ WORLD SERIES BANNER RAISING...  but it was fun to eat pot pie again.  (cook time for the seitan 1 hr 10 min, 25 min in the oven for the bottom layer of pastry puff, time to cook the filling, and then ~45 min cooking with the top layer on)
