Then the cap'n told me about the e. coli scare that's got everyone tossing their bagged greens in the trash and I just couldn't bring myself to unbag the spinach and eat it. Suddenly, it looked 'off' to me. Honestly, I've noticed that the greens at the grocery store have been looking less than wonderful as of late and it just makes me even more anxious to move back to Gainesville where I can join the CSA and enjoy places like Wards, the downtown market, and the the upcoming Whole Foods. Until then, I think I'll be switching to more romaine and leaf lettuce that I can buy unpackaged.
So what ended up on the menu today for lunch?
About a month ago (pre dgmgv) I made a batch of Dreena's Celebrity Adzuki Bean Patties from Vive le Vegan (yum!). As we only ate a couple that night, the rest froze quite nicely and heat up on the skillet in minutes for a hearty lunch! They are fantastic, so tasty!
I eat 'em two at a time since I form the patties a little thin so they're not so mushy. Here, they sandwhich some slices of vine-ripened tomato and are topped with a bit of veganaise and chopped sweet onion on a sprouted whole grain bun.
I love to slather the bottom half (or anything, really) with this:
Mmmmmmm, this is my MOST favorite condiment. It's basically really good mustard packed with loads of nutritional yeast. I get mine from here.
I'm still craving something green and am kicking myself for polishing off the last of my roasted brussel sprouts last night. I see a salad in my future tomorrow, for sure!
