I broke down and googled a recipe. It called for garlic butter, which I felt was a safe bet for any unknown. ((It was not.)) ((I do not like radishes.)) ((Now I know.))
I got a green bell pepper in my CSA box (which is really a bag), and I've only really made one thing with them so far, and that was chili. I'd also been given carrots, which the recipe calls for, so this is as creative as it gets this week ((bit of a repeat)).
Make an egg base of several eggs, some plant based milk, and maybe like some cinnamon, or something; eat approximately one third of your sourdough boule (it was totally a boule), by just gnawing on it like a lion to prey (I did not do that) ((technically)), then cut...
I wanted to make some sort of hummus with all those (damn) chickpeas (and truth be told, I still have a good portion of them in my freezer), but a chickpea smash came across my feed before I could google...
Vegan Mushroom Gravy. Also, I learned the word slurry (which has nothing to do with your drunk uncle) ((or your drunkle)).
If someone makes you a homemade red sauce, and you don't ess their dee (or similar), then that's on you. ((That shit takes work.))
Melissa makes a nut milk. Melissa feels shame and guilt.
Chili Con Cauliflower (that's not what they call it, but that's what I call it).
In 300 years or so, this is going to be a pho broth; just a matter of (cook) time.
((I had to chop a butternut squash for this, so I will be awarding myself a few points; tyvm.)) For this summer stew recipe, I used butternut squash, pinto beans, corn, onions, garlic, fresh basil, salt, and pepper.
((It's a waste of vegetables!)) ((I mean...)) It's a vegetable stock!
Melissa is confident there is a cheaper, faster way to acquire chili powder. Melissa is further convinced she's got a shaker-full already sitting on her counter. Melissa makes a homemade chili powder anyway. Melissa is a good sport about it all.
Melissa makes a mango fruit paste (from dried mangoes; that were soaked in water; then rehydrated -- then pulverized). ((Melissa doesn't know who she is anymore.))
My second attempt at a black bean (mushroom) burger (h/t: not vegan) ((h/t: put an egg on it)), meal prepped with sautéed mushrooms and onions, and a plant based potato salad made earlier in the week (all vegan) ((h/t: put a plant on it)).
Potato salad!!! YAAYYY!!! ((A vegan, plant-based, mayonnaise-free, potato salad, but a potato salad nonetheless.)) ((YAAAYYYY!!!))
