I wouldn't be me if I didn't jump at the chance to throw various leftovers together in odd combinations just to get them polished off. This is how the remaining pasta ended up being topped with the last of the red sauce (man! the homemade stuff just gets better and better with each day it sits in the fridge, doesn't it?), more cashew cheeze and crumbled quinoa patties. A healthy dusting of nutritional yeast and I'll be darned if this wasn't the tastiest thing I've thrown together in a while!
I am serious when I tell you that I can never get enough of Dreena's stuffed portabello mushrooms from TEV. As I've mentioned before, I don't even need the recipe now to whip them up. This time I subbed out the breadcrumbs in the stuffing for leftover quinoa. OH YUM! since I never put tofu in mine the quinoa was a nice punch of protein even if they were a little wetter than they typically would be. think: juicy! mmmmmmm
And I finally threw some seitan ribz on the George Foreman to heat up some leftovers. I think these were Celine's version that had been marinading in the bbq sauce in our fridge from the last family gathering. I loooooved how they stayed tender on the inside but got that charred harder exterior on the outside from the grilling. With some of the summers bounty of corn and some easily heated up frozen green beans, this made for a really quick meal that was filling and super tasty.
I'm currently blogging this from the FBO in Key West where we've been for the holiday weekend. I don't have much to share about this trip, one...because neither one of us remembered a camera, and two....because this whole island is sooooooo not accomodating for a vegan. there were a couple highlights tho, so I look forward to finding a fun way to share them with you sans my own photos once we're settled in back home. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
