It tastes like chicken…vegan meat?!

Jessica and I have visited one or two different vegetarian/vegan/raw vegan restaurants and it seems to be a general theme (although not so much in raw vegan) that dishes revolve around a meat substitute rather than letting the cuisine shine on its own.

Do you have an opinion on this? Are you vegetarian or vegan?

Please let us know what you think about meat substitutes, and also if you have a favorite variety/brand. I’d love to experiment more with this idea, especially if it means adding even more vegetarian meals into my diet.

Pizza Cravings…

by jem614

Hi all you crazy veggie people! It’s Jess, I have been craving pizza the last few weeks. I did give in to a Amy’s pizza this weekend but our store doesn’t have the Amy’s with vegan cheese yet so I kind of cheated.

Anyway, I love the sprouted wheat tortillas so made up my own very simple recipe-

Sprouted wheat tortillas get hard quickly so make sure the cheese is not super cold when you make this.

Ingredients:

Organic Tomato Sauce plain (if you live in Miami, you can find this at Publix but I’m sure Whole Foods carries it too and it’s like .79 cents a can)
Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Wheat tortillas
Daiya Cheese (melts soooo good)
Oregano, Sea Salt and pepper
1 Sausage link from Tofurky (I just learned that Tofurky actually makes their own pizzas! wow!)
1 tsp Olive oil
Green/black Olives

Directions:

Season the tomato sauce with the oregano, salt and pepper.
Spread a thin layer of olive oil on top of the sprouted grain tortilla and then spread the sauce on top.  Cut the olives in half and sprinkle on top.
Grill the cut-up tofurky sausage ahead of time till it’s nice and crispy and then place on top of the tomato sauce.  On top of that, place the daiya cheese.
Put in the oven on low heat so you don’t make the tortilla too hard (they get toasted fast so be careful)
Eat & enjoy – less fat, better for you!
You can put any topping you want but remember that you’re not heating for too long so don’t put anything on top that needs to be cooked- onions could be grilled with the tofurky sausage if you like them but do it ahead of time otherwise they will be crispy and too fresh (unless you like that sort of thing).
