March begins eating even more raw food. March Madness! I love it though. I get to try new recipes, create some, and explore a different part of vegan eating.
Monday I made a favorite around here. Our vegan pastrami recipe. I made rueben style sandwiches. They had saurkraut, cheeze, avocado, and the pastrami. They were so tasty.
Fresh sliced vegan pastrami
2T coarse black pepper
1 1/2T coriander
1/2t red pepper flakes
1t garlic powder
1 3/4c +2T vital wheat gluten
1/4c nutritional yeast
1T olive oil
1/3c red wine
2t liquid smoke
1 1/4c vegetable broth
In a mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients, except the 2 tablespoons of vital wheat gluten. Add the wet ingredients. Knead until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Knead the additional 2tablespoons of vital wheat gluten intp the mixture. Form into a large sausage. Wrap tightly in foil. Steam for 45 minutes. Bake for another 30 minutes at 350F in a lightly greased loaf pan uncovered. Slice and eat.

Rueben style sandwiches
Tuesday and Thursday we had leftovers. Easy, and no wasted food.
Wednesday I made a salad. We rarely eat salads, but when we do, we make them big. I made a chickUN caesar salad. It was so tasty.

Friday night I made big burritos. I used locally, organic spinach tortillas. I filled them with rice, refried black beans, cheezy sauce, "sour" cream, seitan, onion, and tomatoes.
This month I am eating more raw foods. I made raw tomato bread. I am not a fan of raw tomatoes. I only like them cooked. This raw bread is quite tasty, and the dehydrator takes out the raw taste. I also made eggplant bacun. I plan to make sandwiches out of them, add some lettuce, and avocado.
I also made raw jalapeno burgers, and kale chips. Yum!
Rawsome spicy burgers
Saturday morning our 6 year old woke up early so very sick. Poor guy. So, we had leftovers Saturday night. I was still concerned we might have a rough week after dealing with illness all weekend, I cooked several meals Sunday afternoon to make us through the week,
For dinner Sunday night, we had a spicy Asian noodle soup. It is a recipe I veganized from the latest issue of Bon Appetit. It was crazy spicy.
Hot as hell soup
Well off to get some rest before Monday gets here. Hope you have a lovely evening.
peas and love....
