Delicious, Organic, Vegan Indian Food from your Grocer’s Freezer: Amy’s Indian Vegetable Korma

Since eating Jamaican food, I have always been afraid of curry. I’m not a fan of spicy food and curry to me always meant spicy. But Amy’s curry has taught me that the two terms are not synonymous. Amy’s being one of the largest vegan and vegetarian frozen foods manufacturer, I already had high hopes for the Indian Vegetable Korma. I haven’t ever had real Indian food, but if it is anything like Amy’s version, I’m certainly missing out on a great cuisine. Fully vegan, organic, gluten-free and low in calories (310 calories per meal), this is a great lunch or dinner on the go.

I love the homemade taste, the large portion vs. calories and that spicy-phobic eaters (such as myself) can enjoy the curry taste without the burn! I’m not usually a fan of the big brand names, tending to support smaller companies, however Amy’s has proved time and again that they are a market leader for a reason. A great introduction to Indian food – I’ll be looking for the real thing very soon!

Easy Peasy Vegan Mushroom and Cheese Sandwich

On Sunday, I was out with some friends for lunch at this place called “The Village Tavern” in Pembroke Pines and had the most amazing Mushroom Sandwich ever.  I have been salivating over that sandwich since then.  So last night, I went home and made my own.  This time it was vegan!

For the bread, I bought the sprouted grain Ezekiel bread because I wanted this to be a healthy choice.  For the mushrooms, I stir fried them in olive oil with onion, salt and pepper (and a bit of white wine if you prefer).  After they were nice and sauteed, I added the mushrooms, some Daiya Mozzarella and a bit of avocado to my previously toasted bread.  Then pressed it in the George Foreman to help the cheese melt and Voila!  The perfect sandwich.

I noticed something weird after eating the sandwich though, I think I might have an allergy to mushrooms!  The back of my throat was all tingly and I started sneezing (this can’t be happening to me!).  I’m going to try it again with mushrooms on their own and see if it’s that or maybe something else.  Does anyone else get tingly after eating mushrooms?
