I think this is my favorite sandwich ever. Crusty French bread, homemade Sriracha mayo (tofu based), pickled daikon & carrots, marinated tofu, basil, mint, cilantro, and jalapenos.

Clean out the fridge meals are a regular in my house. Those of you who used to read this blog years ago probably remember my method of having three sauces, two cooked legumes, and two cooked grains on hand. I still do that! My freezer always has cooked individual size portions of cooked grains and legumes, and my fridge is stocked with and abundance of homemade sauces. (Seriously, I make a new sauce at least 3 or 4 times a week during recipe testing for MeloMeals.)
So, onto this meal. I had some red peppers I wanted to use and some cooked lentils, so I sauteed up some onion, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, smoked paprika along with a bay leaf for around 10 minutes, I deglazed with red wine vinegar and tomatoes and added raisins, green olives, and the olive brine. I filled the peppers with the mixture and popped them in my air fryer for around 15 minutes or so. I topped the peppers with my homemade vegan feta, and some pico. I added a bit of fresh marjoram to the pico, and wowza guys! It was amazing. So simple, so delicious, and so healthy.

Hidden under the greens are noodles made of Daikon! I dry fried the tofu, then cooked the daikon/tofu in a red curry sauce I made a while back with some coconut milk (the drinkable kind from the carton) and peanut butter.
This is my kind of breakfast!

I get so excited when I score Scotch Bonnets! Habaneros are easy to find, but these babies are elusive. When we went to Jamaica, I fell in love with the sauce at a little roadside place and have been re-creating it every time I am lucky enough to get my hand on these firey, floral little gems.

Fortunately, I have access to commercial pizza ovens, so I'm going to make another batch of cheese and dough (and sauce) and bake one up there. I will report back!

It's so cold! Fortunately, my slow cooker has been at work at home while I was away, cooking for work. I normally make this on the stove, but decided to test it in the crockpot.
Daikon, carrots, potatoes, chickpeas in a savory Asian Fusion gravy is so delicious.The original recipe was born out of me attempting to recreate the Japanese Beef Curry my BF loves. I knew that I didn't want to try to replicate beef, but I love how the chickpea liquid gels when you cook them from scratch, so I knew chickpeas would be a great substitution. And they are! The chickpea liquid coats the veggies in a similar way that meat gelatin does (or so I'm told, I have never really eaten meat, but The Boyfriend confirmed this.) This is such a warming stew; perfect for the weather, but not nearly as heavy as a full potato based stew is.

It's been a long time since I've written here, but I have some free time today, so here I am. I'm very happy to report that my foot healed enough for me to be cooking again! I've been working as a plant-based chef at a localish juice bar. Soups, bowls, and meals to go are the main things I'm making. Fun times!
