So here’s the dealio! The stir fry was based off of two heavily modified recipes (links included of course). And it’s amazing.
This was my first time cooking rice in my rice cooker. I’ve had it almost 2 years so that might be considered… insane? Maybe. I’m okay with that; I got it for quinoa and I just make rice so rarely. I make rice rarely for the same reason that I had nori paper sitting in the cupboard for 5 years: Because I am incapable of cooking rice. I couldn’t believe how easy it was in my rice cooker! I knew it “should be” easy, but rice is “supposed to be” easy to cook in the first place isn’t it?
So this was more like a not-meat blob of some sorts. It totally fell apart when I took it out of the glass dish… I made two of the same size and it was really, really good. It didn’t taste like the meat loaf that I remember but it has been quite a long time since I’ve had meat of any sorts so who am I to say that? My mom said it didn’t taste the same either, but don’t fret! We both agreed it was super tasty!
Oh man… This was so tasty! I used Char’s recipe… I also used almond butter instead of peanut butter. I also doubled the amount of peanut (almond) sauce and used half a package of tofu instead of a third. I might have gotten carried away. As you can see, that tortilla is slightly overfilled lol.
I’ve been putting off this post for much too long… My apologies!
How was everyone’s (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend? Mine was fantastic if I do say so myself. We had to close work early on Sunday (and when I say early I mean at 9 in the morning) so I only worked a half-day, thus giving me lots more time to make dinner than I was expecting.
Originally I was wanting something Mexican for dinner today, but as I perused recipes between the two non-dessert cookbooks my idea of what I wanted migrated to burgers. Spicy, spicy burgers. I was going to make ‘spicy black bean burgers’, but on the very next page of Vegan A Go-Go was a recipe for ‘Lentil Burgers’. I’d never had lentils before to be honest so I didn’t really know what to expect, but oh man these were good!
