Hot sauce glazed tempeh, from Veganomicon (which I've been misspelling for the past year as Veganomican, oops). Isa threatened to disown me as a tester if I didn't fix that.
With steamed kale with sea salt and chickpeas with parmesan.
The messing you up part? See below. Half a soy chicken from Fubonn, glazed with a Gai Tod Garlic style sauce and yellow bell pepper. I could NOT eat this, even try it, but Thomas was all about it.
I'm not a big faux meats gal as it is, but this is messed up! I'm not actually exclaiming that, just a little creeped out. It even smelled 'chickeny', though it was literally just molded and frozen into the birdy shape. Would you eat it?
I was really happy with this meal because it was a very 'use what's in the fridge' concoction:
vegetable fried rice with cashews and sesame chili baked tofu. The fried rice has portabella mushroom, cashews, yellow bell pepper, carrots and zucchini.
I ate a meal like this 2 or 3 nights last week:
steamed millet cooked in the rice cooker with veggie buillion, grilled japanese eggplant, tofurkey italian sausage, tofu, olives, parmesan and fresh spinach.
Mac 'n' cheez from What the hell does a vegan eat anyway?
grilled japanese eggplant and reallllllly garlickly sauteed spinach.
This is what I made for myself on soy chicken night:
Peanut soba noodles with pan fried tofu and carrots.. I made the peanut sauce with a lowfat coconut and water base and it was so creamy and good.
Can you see the big ole mason jar in the back? That's the signature drink from "Bye and Bye" - a new vegan bar in NE Portland, along with the BBQ platter. Check out our recent review on Stumptown Vegans. I wish this place was in SE Portland near me!
One last question - can anyone in/familiar with Seattle recommend a somewhere to eat or get delivery from late night? Thanks!
