hello, hello

Tofu scramble with kalamata olives, green beans, tomato, cucumber, el burrito sausage and garlic with fresh fruit.
Coffee silk
in the back.

Rice stick noodles with Vege Thai sinfully amazing peanut sauce, tofu, kale, carrots and broccoli. Inspiration ala lolo.

Huxley and his new friend, mr. teeny eggplant with arms.


Random summer squash chili. With garlic scapes, carrots, zucchini & summer squash.

Half peanut, half kung pao organic wok bowl from New Seasons.

Super simple & quick lunch from a couple weeks back - Gardenburger herb crusted cutlet with homemade marinara and pesto tofu ricotta, fresh chinese broccoli and nectarine.

Ah, Dots grub.

Vegan Greek Salad with tofu.

Fresh cut fries with spicy tofu dipping sauce. The key is to get a little ketchup and tofu sauce on your frie. Oh, and to eat more salad than fries to avoid feeling like a monster.

My resident bartender, Thomas', Hazelnut Espresso martini.


The rain has returned to Portland, just for a bit, and I'm just fine with that. Sure, I don't adore the extensive rainy season, or misty season, but this summer has been TOO warm for me.

And with that, I've been eating less at home, at least less interesting food. I had dinner at the Red & Black cafe twice this past week alone, as well as enjoying the above New Seasons wok bowl on Friday night.
Speaking of Red & Black not only did we just post a review on Stumptown Vegans, but Thomas and I have made reservations for their Vegan Dinner benefit on Saturday night. Check it out if you're in the area and interested, support a fantastic local, vegetarian cafe.

That salad with tofu looks more like a vegan caesar than a vegan Greek - but it looks good! Will you share the recipe?

Selina said...

Your Rice Stick Noodles & Vege Thai look so good!

Huxley & his new friend are so cute!

It hasn't been too hot here but its been SO dry.

Hi Mare!
The salad was actually from a bar/restaurant, Dots, in SE Portland. So, no recipe to share. It consists of lettuce, cucumber, tomato, seasoned tofu (chewy as if it's been frozen and defrosted), kalamata olives and Italian dressing. Definitely not traditional.

i <3 Huxley. What a great photo!! Everything looks amazing. Dots, yet another Portland restaurant. Does it ever end out there by you? Such choices. Of course if i had my druthers, i'd just beg and whine for handouts outside of your door. You make the best of EVERYTHING vegan. you amaze me, Jess. Love it all.

Aren't you lucky to have a resident bartender who makes cool drinks (haha)!

Monika K said...

Wow, I thought all of this food looked terrific and then I was momentarily sidetracked by the blog about cookies below it...either way, it's all quite impressive! (-:

Carrie™ said...

$9-$20 for the benefit dinner??!! That sounds like a steal! Oh if only I lived on the west coast. As usual, your porn is a turn-on! And that martini. Delicious!

Kati said...

That spicy tofu dipping sauce is very pretty. Huxley looks a bit scary, but I don't really blame him - eggplant is scary for me, too.

karla said...
