“Why, for instance, would you assume a vegetarian wants sautéed kale in a light cilantro vinaigrette over a deep-fried spinach empanada smothered in hot sauce and mozzarella? Or that we would rather order zucchini spaghetti topped with an organic tomato and sweet potato purée instead of a half-pound lasagna crammed with every cheese, sauce, and seitan sausage imaginable?”
As a vegetarian/ junk food addict, I heartily agree.
I’m working til 2 am tonight and I can *feel* those disgustingly awesome raspberry fudge oreos calling to me like something out of a horror film. Must. Resist. Oreo. Madness! How hard is this? Well… A recent study suggests that oreos are as addictive as some serious drugs. Much like these little ratties, my brain is constantly pleasure-seeking in the form of chocolatey goodness.
2 more hours to go. I wish I hadn’t eaten my work banana already. :(
Last night I made a raw chocolate pudding using chia seeds. There’s a lot of recipes for this, both chunky and smooth. I am not a chunky pudding person (tapioca, yuck), so I knew I wanted the smooth variety. Unfortunately, I did not properly follow the directions and instead of grinding the chia seeds first, I blended it all together and got something sorta chunky, but still pretty tasty. Next time, I will grind and then mix for maximal smoothness.
Heat is no friend to mayonnaise. The perfect way to preserve produce for hot summer picnics is by pickling â not just cucumbers, but cherries, green tomatoes, okra, kohlrabi â all kinds of seasonal produce.
