I don't celebrate Taco Tuesday EVERY Tuesday, but last week, I sure did! Global Café, an international food hall run by refugees/immigrants, usually focuses on dishes from Syria, Sudan, and Venezuela since that's where the chefs hail from. But the manager is a Mexican immigrant, and sometimes, he introduces specials to the menu. For the past few weeks, they'd been posting about their limited-time Black Bean Tacos, and I just had to have them!
There were four double-layered tacos in corn tortillas with the best black beans I've ever had. So well seasoned! I asked for avocado to be added, and I highly recommend you do the same if you're local and want to try these before they go off-menu.
Last Thursday, I went by Imagine Vegan Cafe for my weekly takeout. This time, I went with the BLTA and a Side Salad with Vegan Ranch. Their BLTA features crisp Smart Bacon on a toasted hoagie with lots of avocado and mayo. So good!
I'm slowly working my way through all the recipes in the No Meat Athlete Cookbook, and I finally got around to trying the Baked Deep Dish Apple Pancake. This breakfast cake is baked in a cast-iron skillet with the caramelized apples on the bottom. Really yummy! I had this as a weekday breakfast, but it'd be better suited for a decadent weekend brunch.
Here's my favorite brunch — Ramen with Tofu! Enjoyed in my PJs while watching Netflix as per usual.
And finally, here's an AMAZING Coconut Peanut Curry Tofu Noodle dish I made. I whipped up a coconut curry sauce using coconut milk, curry powder, peanut butter, garlic, and lime juice, and then I tossed that with air-fried tofu, rice noodles, and stir-fried veggies. I wish I had more leftovers!
