Spiralizer!



For our birthdays, my sister and her husband bought us a spiralizer and a cookbook on Fermenting Vegetables. We had to go on an adventure to pick up the package because it was sent to our old apartment, but thankfully we were able to procure the package with no problem. Thank you so much for the gifts, sister sister!

We immediately spiralized an apple and a potato.


The strands get so so long!

We ate the apple and cooked up the potato in the oven. I drizzled on olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and cooked it for about 20 minutes in a 400F oven. The potato came out deliciously crispy and I served it with a mixture of sriracha and vegan mayo.


I'm off to get some canning jars today to begin the fermented experiments. What I love about this book is that all the recipes are for pint or quart sized jars so you don't end up with 3 gallons of something you hate. I have two beets in the fridge that are crying out to be fermented!

Soy Curl Taco Lunch



Soy curls rehydrated with veggie broth paste, water, chili powder, onion powder, and cumin powder
cilantro
onion
lime

For dinner we had these on crispy taco shells, but I didn't want to try to transport that to work, so I opted to eat these with a tortilla.

Served with guacamole with corn, celery, orange, and hummus.

Burrito Lunch



Burrito filling, tortilla, tortilla chips, hummus, cucumber, grapefruit, celery.

The burrito filling did not spill out at all from the lunch box. The lid sits on top and makes a nice seal.

Beet Burger Lunch



Beet burger recipe here: http://www.theppk.com/2012/02/quarter-pounder-beet-burger/. These are so fantastically tasty. We try to make them every time we have beets in the house. This time we added about 2 tablespoons of vital wheat gluten and the burgers held together so so well.

Served with kiwi, apples, carrots, celery, and hummus.
