Food Porn.

Hi. Hi blog. I feel like I haven’t seen you in so long! I have been a busy, busy little bee lately. Unlike some people, I DO NOT like to be overly busy with plans and commitments. I am, and have always been the kind of person who requires substantial alone time and a fair share of down time. Doing things like cooking up something new and exciting, reading a copy of VegNews, watching a dvd and more are all things that I love to do. Not having time to do those things and other hobbies makes me a sad, sad panda fox. And a stressed fox. A sad, stressed fox.

Anyhow, I am hoping things will calm down for me once fall gets into gear. When the days get shorter, people usually don’t like to do as much. Does that fall under environmental determinism? Or is that just climate and weather? Who knows. I have been 3 kinds of Eddie Murphy Delirious lately, so excuse me if I don’t make sense.

Enough about me! How dare I! I have some better posts with recipes that I will try to post later this week . But for now, here is some food porn of what I have been eating lately.

Tempeh Shawarma w/ Tabouleh Salad
Seared Tempeh over Mashed Potatoes & Cherry-Balsamic Reduction
Cumin & Avocado Oil Rubbed Portobello Mushroom Tortas w/ Purple Basil Aioli and Dragonfruit Pico de Gallo

The Daiya doesn’t look that melted in the pic, but I assure you it was!

Curried "Pork", Enoki Mushroom & Purple Basil Spring Rolls w/ Porcini-Shoyu-Sake Reduction
Lavender Fettucine w/ Basil-Mint Aioli and Wild Arugula
Coffee Rubbed "Steak" Tacos w/ Lobster Mushroom, Heirloom Cherry Tomato & Corn Salsa
Coffee Rubbed "Steak" Tacos w/ Lobster Mushroom, Heirloom Cherry Tomato & Corn Salsa
Heirloom Tomato, Black Garlic & Marsala-Roasted Chickpea Panzanella
Lemon-Artichoke Homemade Pasta in a Heirloom Tomato-Cream Vinaigrette w/ English Peas & "Prosciutto"

Most of these recipes (but not all) were from my favorite cookbook, Jenn Shagrin’s Veganize This! You can always expect an amazing meal when cooking from Jenn’s blog or book. Love that lady!

  1. I can’t even get over how good everything looks but man oh man do I especially want that torta. Basil aioli is one of my FAVORITE condiments and add a cumin and avocado rubbed portabella and some cheez on a good bread and I would be a happy camper. What kind of bread did you use?

    1. Thank you so much. I love you! The bread for the torta was lightly toasted organic ciabatta from Whole Foods Bakery. One day, I’ll eat all of my sammies on homemade bread. Maybe when I have a giant dream kitchen 🙂

    1. Oh my gosh, I didn’t end up getting any decent pics of the cheesecake pie. You know what that means….round two! Haha, seriously, for our next group get together, you know where there are more than just two of us, I will have to make it again. I seriously think about that pie. Often. 😉

    1. Thank you Galen! I am looking forward to some lovely food together as well. Apple-Rosemary pie here we come! I would also love to do a plum and blackberry crumble with tarragon before there are no more good plums left!
