Portabella sandwich dinner

Organic Portabella from the farmer's market, grilled on a sandwich with vegenaise, spinach, sliced tomato and sourdough bread. All organic. On the side is white wine, olive oil and tamari asparagus. The portabella was also briefly marinaded in white wine, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic and tamari.

Crispy Sweet and Sour tofu (+garlic) from Vegan Yum Yum,brown rice and Veganomican test kitchen baby boy choy with crispy shallots. I do adore black sesame seeds.

And for similar meals that I've been eating:

Italian-y marinaded (tamari, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, white wine vinegar, veggie both, garlic, pesto and miso) grilled tofu and portabella slices and roasted red pepper over spinach. Whole wheat penne with fire roasted marinara on the side.

Whole wheat spaghetti with fire roasted marinara, roasted red pepper and spinach. This weekend I realized I didn't have much food in the house besides a can of Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes and pasta to base meals around...which is okay because I literally had a marriage ceremony with those tomatoes right after college.

Pesto popcorn. Ingredients: Popcorn kernels, grapeseed oil, earth balance, pesto and sea salt.
I whisked the pesto into a little bit of melted earth balance to toss the hot popcorn with.



I'm still looking for recommendations on international veg*n food blogs - regardless of the language, if you know any~ Thanks!
And much appreciation to those who've visited us at Stumptown Vegans!

If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life id probably choose a portabella burger or watermellon.

If only portabellas didnt cost so much...

Pesto with popcorn, that is so genius.

Emily said...

Jess, your food looks SO good.

I need to get back to making real food.

Larissa said...

That popcorn looks gooooood. I'll try that sometime soon.

pesto popcorn...what a great idea!

Judy said...

That first pic with the sandwich looks like it could be in a magazine. And I love your idea of putting pesto on popcorn.

Maria said...

Mmm... yummy...

erica said...

I can't wait to eat the portabellas in my fridge, although they made me feel really ill the last time I had them (I'm hoping it was just that batch). All that food looks and sounds amazing. I wish you could cook my tentative return to cooked food (on the 11th), but I think as long as I have bread and/or a burrito, I'll be fine :)

Kati said...

Yum, I must try that sweet and sour tofu. Ooh and pesto popcorn!

Do you toast your black sesame seeds in a skillet before you use them? I find them to be very bitter if I don't.

Linda said...

Veg-a-Nut said...

Everything looks wonderful. The portabella burger is awesome!

Julie said...

Just had some of your pesto popcorn...MMMM...I could have this stuff as a meal! Thanks for the great idea!

Theresa said...

That food looks delicious!

I'm an American vegan, but I'm living in Australia, so my blog is pretty much international. Plus, a few of my links are international vegan blogs--kblog, Iron Chef Vegan, and Lelly's Vegan Kitchen, if you haven't heard of those.

Emily said...

i was going to make grilled or baked tofu for dinner the other day after seeing your post, but there wasn't any in my fridge and the store was out! ack.

anyway, lovely food! i want to eat at your house.

Cherie said...

Yum! I'm always attracted to food pics that have basil and tomatoes and things like that, so even the pasta with tomato sauce gets me excited! :) Love the photos.

I'm a popcorn fiend - what a cool idea putting pesto with it!

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

Theresa - thank you for the links! Very appreciated.

Briggitte - The portabella was organic, local and 6.49/lb - I was thrilled!

Emily - make some real food : )

erica - good luck! I'd love to have you over for real food sometime, though I'm partially terrified of cooking for people... ha!

Kati- Sometimes I toast the black ones for more flavor, but when garnishing, I usually just throw them on, since it's partially for color/uh, cuteness.

Julie - I'm really glad you liked it!! awesome.

Cherie - I understand, I'm a tomatoes and basil Italian girl myself.

Vicki - give it a try!
