First, china cow is excited:
My hands have been pretty full with dad-related stuff lately, so I don't have very much food stuff to share. We've been doing plenty of salads, which make a nice, quick meal when it's too hot to cook. Here's a kitchen sink style salad, which has pretty much everything on it you could imagine. Grilled tofu, cashews, kalamata olives, carrots, avocado, tomato, and I think there may be some romaine lettuce under there somewhere.
Then we top them with the most wonderful substance in the world- vegan ranch dressing. We make a semi-homemade kind, using Vegenaise and Saucy Ranch Seasoning.
Here's what you do:
1 cup Vegenaise
1 Tbsp canola or other oil
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp vinegar or lemon juice
2 Tbsp Saucy Ranch Seasoning
Whip all ingredients together in a bowl, using a little water to thin as necessary. Serve cold.
I'm really loving the fresh tomatoes available in the summer. Sliced tomatoes are one of my all around favorite foods! A great summer breakfast is yellow Teese grits with a whole wheat biscuit and a couple of mato slices. Comforting goodness.
What are some of your favorite summer meals?
