Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Oh wait, those are Maria's favorite things in The Sound of Music. My bad. Although I am quite fond of whiskers on kittens.
Tonight, I ate a few of my favorite condiments for dinner: Miso Mayo, Leahey Gardens Vegan Cheese Sauce, and Sriracha. Not alone, silly. Well, I have been known to lick the pot of Leahey sauce and turn up a bottle of sriracha, but ... tonight, I put these things onto and into my food.
I made my Eggless Tofu Olive Salad (it'll be in my cookbook, which comes out in January!) with a twist. I usually include a half-cup of vegan mayo, like Vegenaise or Earth Balance Mindful Mayo. But this time, I got all crazy and subbed a fourth-cup of Miso Mayo for some of the Vegenaise. Miso Mayo is pure magic. If you've not tried it, seek it out. It's made from non-GMO canola oil, miso, cider vinegar, tamari, and onion. So tasty. And onion-y.
Sandwiches in my house are usually served with chips, but I've been eating out a lot. So I'm trying to take it down a notch and eat some healthy crap. I steamed some kale and topped it with Leahey Gardens Vegan Cheese Sauce and Sriracha:
Best kale topper ever! For some reason, I've never thought to cover my kale in hot vegan cheese. But now I have seen the light.
This meal was so tasty, my kitty Polaris wanted in on it:
While I was photographing my food, he totally swiped the bread from sandwich. After the shutter clicked, he grabbed the bread off the sandwich and tried to eat it. But I stole that bread right back. Yes, I eat after my cats.
What condiments could you never live without?
