Want to hear me gush about vegan food and Portland out loud? Do you think you can handle it?
Check out the new Stumptown Vegans Podcasts website, where you can listen to
Webly and myself discuss our favorite places, cheap ass deals and
interview the inspirational Everyday Dish host Julie Hasson.
This is an extension of our food reviews website, StumptownVegans.com
We're now on Itunes, too!
Look for a new podcast coming shortly.
But to give this post some non-promotional substance, some recent foodz:
This salad has romaine, raddichio, Italian kale and tempeh bacon.
I'm not too into salad dressings. I would have used some balsamic vinegar, but I was at work, so I went all plain crazy. If anything, I would have dug this salad with some vegan caeser, but sometimes you just want to taste the lettuce.
Totally without greens, barring smooshed avocado - nachos. Freaking awesome nachos. A small plate, to boot. With seasoned tempeh, cheezy sauce, salsa, avocado and indulgence. From a week or two ago.
In more lively produce development, here's what I picked up from two farmers markets yesterday:
You can see organic bulk tofu, yukon gold potatoes and a mini red pepper also from People's in the back. New recipe testing tonight!
I stopped at the downtown market by my office, and then at People's on the way home.
Hell yes to two in one day. I find it fun and enlivening to go to the downtown market on my lunch hour, and the People's market is not only in front of the coop, but there are rice balls and great deals on local mushrooms. Maiittakes are $10/lb and Shiitakes are $5, opposed to the downtown market where they're $10 and I believe, $15.
In more super duper cool news, I'm going on vacation to NYC next week! Last minute suggestions are always welcome.
