As usual, I've been put in food of (in other words, I volunteered to) make the food. We'll be bringing a floating cooler full of snacks and drinks, and lunch foods.
Does anyone have suggestions on food that's motion-friendly, fun, and yummy? So far, all I've been able to come up with is peanutbutter-banana-chocolate type of "sushi-roll" wraps.
All these years of trying to stuff everything into a little top freezer on our fridge have come to an end.
I cook a lot and am thinking of getting a Seal-a-Meal, plus we have a mostly tomato container garden. If you were stocking a freezer, what would you put in it? What is the best way to freeze fresh produce?
All diced up into bite sized bits
Fresh Oregano (I picked it from my garden and diced it up thoroughly)
Cracked black pepper
Pinch of salt
I made the dressing first so that it could sit and the oil could absorb all the flavour while I chopped veggies. I boiled the pasta until al dente, rinsed in cold water, then added all of the veggies except the tomatoes and tossed it around to mix everything up, then added the dressing, then the tomatoes to add some extra thickness to the dressing/coating on the pasta and veggies.
It was very fresh and tasty and looked stunning in a bowl next to a cold glass of white wine.
My boyfriend enjoyed it so much he made a little mascot…honestly, this is the reason I wanted to post the recipe.
Question – does it count as raw food if there’s pasta involved? Other than the pasta nothing else has been cooked. I'm sure this would be tasty with sprouted seeds too.
I'm out of bread, out of money.
I don't have yeast, but I do have beer!
Any good (& hopefully simple) recipes someone is withholding?
I'm missing angel food cake and merengue-shells and whipped cream really badly right now.
I have lots of fresh berries, and I'm looking for more light, exciting dessert ideas that will help shore up my belief that being vegan doesn't have to mean giving up great food.
Here's the sorbet I made last week:
5 cups washed, hulled strawberries
simple syrup made by boiling 1 cup organic raw sugar and 1 cup water, chilled.
juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
Process the berries in a food processor to a chunky puree, mix ingredients and combine in a ice cream maker.
