Mmmmm ... bagels! I was on a huge bagel kick about a month ago. Here's a Breakfast Bagel Sandwich with tofu eggs, vegan Go Veggie American cheese slice, garlic aioli, and spinach. My favorite quick weekday breakfast!
But I also love classic Bagels with Cream Cheeze. This was a Sprouts brand toasted onion & poppyseed sprouted grain bagel with Kite Hill vegan cream cheese (THE BEST CREAM CHEESE EVER!). I usually eat my bagels with spread split into two halves, but I've been seeing my Northeastern blogger friends post cream cheese bagel sandwiches, so I had to try it. It was quite a bit messier this way.
Yummy workday lunch from Havana's Pilon, a downtown Cuban joint. This was the Stewed Eggplant and White Rice.
And of course, I ordered a side of Fried Plantains!
I typically eat leftovers from dinner for work lunches though. But when I'm all out of leftovers, it's either takeout (like the yummy food above) or easy convenience meals. One day, I brought some Tasty Bite Bengal Lentils to work along with some leftover basmati rice. Quick lunch!
Another quick convenience food lunch! Added some Tofurky spinach-pesto sausages and Go Veggie vegan parm to this Near East Roasted Red Pepper & Basil Quinoa Blend. Instant meal!
Been craving burgers a lot lately. I ordered this one from Imagine Vegan Cafe. LOVE their burger! It's so meaty and delicious, and they cram so much into the bun. This was the S.O.B. (South of the Border) Burger with guacamole, jalapenos, onion, tomato, and salsa. As you can see, I had to squish the bun down to make it mouth-sized. On the side was Broccoli & White Cheeze Sauce.
I stocked up on Soy Curls in Austin, so I knew I needed to try JL Fields' Soy Curl Paprikash Sandwich from Vegan For Her. I've wanted to make this sandwich ever since I bought the book right after it came out! These are paprika-coated, chicken-flavored, sour creamy Soy Curls with sauerkraut on multigrain oat bread. YUM! Here's JL's recipe.
Really into salads these days. And one of my new fave salad toppings is Heidi Ho Ne Chevre. My Whole Foods just started carrying it, but it's not always in stock. Sigh. This was the black lava salt cheeze. Also on the salad: baby carrots, blueberries, blood orange-raspberry vinaigrette.
Right after Austin, I went to Whole Foods to get some groceries. And I made a Big Ass Salad from the Whole Foods salad bar! So much stuff in here: balsamic tofu, detox salad, mushrooms, almonds, olives, carrots, brown rice, white beans, red onion, corn, sunflower seeds, oil-free balsamic.
We all got cans of Sophie's Kitchen Vegan Toona in our Vida Vegan Con swag bags this year. And while I was never a big tuna fan, I do love vegan tuna because it's not so fishy. The Sophie's Toona comes plain in a can, just like fish tuna. I mixed mine with Vegenaise, celery, red onion, and pickles and served it with romaine on sprouted grain bread. Made for a nice lunch today with some chips and salsa. I like the meaty texture and appreciate that it doesn't taste too sea veggie-ish.
Well, that's it! I'm all caught up on dumping photos. Now I can go clean out my photo app on my iPhone and made some more storage space before they make me purchase more cloud space.
