Vegan MOFO 2107 - Day 29


Hey Vegan MOFO Friends,

It was a rainy Sunday so our daughter asked for chili.  I made traditional chili for them and then I made a vegan version for me.  I must say it was pretty good.

Our daughter came home for a surprise visit this weekend.  It was so nice to have her home.  Ernie and Toby were thrilled she came home too.  We just hung out and did a lot of eating.  I made a pot of corn chowder before we picked her up from the train.  It’s one of our favorites.

 

It’s so easy to make and so yummy.  I’ve posted it before on my blog but here’s the recipe again.

 

Vegan Chili

1 medium onion, diced

3 Tablespoons Earth Balance Margarine

1 container mushrooms diced fine

2 large cloves of garlic

1 cup of red lentils rinsed

1 large can of tomato sauce

2 tsps. Chile powder

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

1 can of black beans

 

Sauté the onions in the margarine.  Add the mushrooms and the garlic. 

 

Add the rest of the ingredients.  Cook over low heat until the lentils are soft. 

 

It hits the spot!

Vegan MOFO 2017 - Day 27


Today I shared my everything roll with my co-worker.  She got the other half of the part I started eating below.  LOL  She really liked it.  It also had my vegan cream cheese on it.  I told her I made the roll and she said she really like the everything seasoning.  I think I’ll have to make some more of those! 

I love it when people like my food!

Today was another yummy eating day!

Breakfast – coffee, chocolate protein shake and a homemade everything roll

Lunch – lunch was ordered in from Potbelly’s.   I made sure that we had enough vegetarian sandwiches for all and I had mine and another co-worker’s made to be vegan.  We also had two yummy salads.  Everyone loved it. 

Snack – potato chips

I used some of the leftover dough from the calzones the other night to make these yummy everything rolls.

 



Everything Seasoning

3 Tablespoons minced onion

2 Tablespoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons poppy seeds

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

1 tablespoon pink Himalayan sea salt

Mix all together and keep stored in a glass container.

 


I just sprinkled the seasoning on two pieces of the dough rolled into a ball.  I baked them about 25 minutes in a 425 degree oven.

Vegan MOFO 2017 - Day 24 - Tuesday Chew Day


Hey Vegan MOFO Friends,

So today I decided to make some calzones from “The Chew.” 

Here’s the recipe I used for the dough.

 

Pizza Dough

1 ¼ cup room temperature water

1 teaspoon yeast

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups of flour (plus more when forming)

Dissolve the yeast in the water – stirring to incorporate.  Put the flour with the salt and sugar in a large bowl and stir together.  Add the water and yeast mixture and stir until combined.  Cover bowl with a tea towel.

 

I did this part before I went to work.  When I got home from work I punch down the dough and kneaded a little bit and formed into a ball. Then I went to the grocery store so I let I rest again for about an hour.

 

I formed two pieces of dough into about 8 by 5 inch rectangles.

 


We put marinara sauce, sliced black olives, sliced mushrooms, and diced red onion on top of half of the dough.  I folded over the dough and sealed.  Bake at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes.
