I was really looking forward to sharing the pizza I made today, but sadly the picture turned out pretty horrible. This was tasty, though. It’s the Potato and Tempeh Sausage Pizza from Vegan with a Vengeance and it’s awesome! I love the tempeh sausage crumbles on pizza and I have a lot of leftovers so I’ll definitely be doing that again. The potato didn’t cook as much as I would’ve liked it to, though, so next time I might try steaming the slices first. I’d love to get crispy and/or creamy potato on my pizza, but these slices were still a little crunchy and undercooked. Other than that, this was really yummy.
Sorry for the low-quality post, I promise to try better soon! :) Meanwhile, read other (awesomer!) MoFo posts here! I have to get up early so I’d better try and get some sleep now.
This morning was cold and rainy again, so I decided to make us a breakfast with tropical flavours:
These are the Coconut Pancakes with Pineapple Sauce from Vegan with a Vengeance. They were a fun and tasty change on the plain pancakes we usually have (the Perfect Pancakes from Vegan Brunch are my favourite!), although I think the can of pineapple I used was too large because this made a LOT of sauce (more than twice the amount shown in the picture.) Not a problem, of course – leftovers all went into the freezer. If I made it again I’d probably keep the sauce simpler, though, as the added sugar and vanilla were just distracting from the yummy pineapple flavour, in my opinion. Still, we both thought this was a really yummy and filling breakfast.
For dinner, we had fennel soup and sandwiches. Perfect cold weather comfort food!
I had tasted some of De Vegetarische Slager (the vegetarian butcher)’s products before, and when I found out that they now sell plain, non-marinated chicken pieces, I really wanted to give them a try. So when I visited my parents this weekend I decided to bring them a box of the vegan chicken and turn it into a peanut satay:
I started in the morning by marinating the pieces in some soy sauce, rice vinegar, sambal, garlic, and ginger. Then at dinner time, I sautéed them and served them over the Unfried Fried Rice from Appetite for Reduction (with added carrots, peas, and yellow bell pepper) with the delicious peanut sauce from Vegan with a Vengeance. The vegetarian butcher’s products are really very meat-like, and while that’s not necessarily something I look for in my food, they are quite tasty and I’m glad to see that some non-vegan family members consider these to be decent meat substitutes. It also looks like many of their faux meats don’t contain any gluten, so they could be a great option for vegetarians with allergies as well. I really hope to see these products in the supermarkets some day!
Now I think I’d better go to bed because I’m tired and it’s taking me forever to form sentences (: I’ll be back tomorrow, hopefully with veggie burgers!
