I'm paying for my gustatory indiscretions today, oh yes. I get acid reflux when I eat things that are very spicy, fatty, or acidic. You know what kinds of foods those are? The best kinds!*
Take our dinner last night, for example. I finally made the vegan version of butter chicken with the spice pack I bought at the Indian market. I prepared it pretty much the same way Laura did here, except I pureed my tomatoes for whatever reason. Then I made jasmine rice cooked with full fat coconut milk along with a few tablespoons of dry garlic chutney. We had these with my first attempt at homemade dosas (too thick, but tasted awesome) and a heated up package of Tasty Bite bombay potatoes. The results? Dinner of the year. So damn good, it was worth the pain in my gut.
(yes, my pictures are still looking weird. The camera won't focus correctly anymore. Lame.)
On Wednesday night we decided to try a new meat analog that just arrived to the store. A vegan version of the Turkish Doner Kebap. Weirdest analog ever? Weird, but not as weird as the haggis.
Weird or not, the kebap is mighty tasty. We had it in a wrap with lettuce. tomatoes, hummus, and Tofutti sour cream.
Let's see, what else did we eat this week..... Oh! I made Tofu Mom's delish Bourbon Tofu. But since I'm not really in the habit of buying alcohol for cooking or drinking, I just made it with apple juice. The result was a crispy, slightly sweet and awesome. Much more awesome than the blurry photo.
The last great meal of the week was lunch from Sevananda's hot bar. They had a Mexican theme going on with spanish kale, Mexican rice, refried beans with tofutti sour cream and vegan gourmet cheese, some other spicy beans with tomatoes, seitan stir fry and heartburn. This kicked much ass. I love Sevananda. Even though they recently started selling a certain specialty item that up until now only we sold in Atlanta. I forgive you, Sev. Just keep making the good stuff.
*apologies to Seth and his dick-shaped foods.
