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)).
This is your chickpea smash on toast.
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...
((If you're "one of those", who doesn't like your food to touch, I apologize in advance for this plating; there was definitely sour cream on my peach.)) ((Giggity.))
Chili Con Cauliflower (that's not what they call it, but that's what I call it).
@ForksOverKnives recommends serving this summer stew over brown rice, but all I have is the good stuff :) ((Kidding.)) ((Not really.)) YOU get a meal prep! YOU get a meal prep!
((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.
Another mise en place of pain. ((WHAT MELISSA MAKE?))
((Get yourself some tiny tomatoes.)) ((Tell 'em I sent you.)) Black bean mushroom veggie burger, topped with mushrooms and onions, plated with red onions, spinach, cheese, and tiny tomatoes; served with a side of vegan, plant based potato salad ((ftw)).
I mean honestly. Who needs beef? Save a cow. Eat a black bean burger.
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)).
If you are my friend in real life on this day (in the past) ((the internet is a lie)), you may (have) receive(d) some (plant based) potato salad of your own (today*) ((*you did; I know who you are already; it was awhile ago)).
Potato salad!!! YAAYYY!!! ((A vegan, plant-based, mayonnaise-free, potato salad, but a potato salad nonetheless.)) ((YAAAYYYY!!!))
((Time for another round...))
