Triple Threat

In Not-my-street-eats, The Good Food Emporium on January 29, 2011 at 9:44 am

This month I’ve had the pleasure of two of my favourite small meals in Halifax.

One: The Good Food Emporium‘s Tofu Sandwich

Why I love this sandwich: the positively magical, mysterious and unmockable mixture of tasty tofu that is so generously slathered throughout the center  and even the mayo is vegan on this puppy.

Tofu Sammy

Two: I went to The Carleton to see Laura Peek and Mike Evin perform their poppy piano melodies. I never seem to smap a picture of the delicious frites they have there because I eat them so fast, but here is the Spinach Salad with Ginger Soy dressing, mangos, onions, peppers, and toasted pecans.

Ginger Soy Dressing! Onions! Mango! Red Pepper! TOASTED PECANS.

BONUS: Off to my friend Fitzi’s (also not the same day!) for a girls night of drinking and debauchery. I took some Daiya with me and we made NACHOOOOZZZ.

Yeah, so I took the picture through the oven door. What?

H’ooooo m’lanta.

What treats, what treasures.

Fortunate is me.

This month has been delightful food wise. Earlier I ordered 10lbs of Daiya from Karmavore! That makes everything allllright.

I’ve been really into mac ‘n cheeze due to the winter weather, short days, and the simple fact that it is deeeeerichious!

Mac ‘n Daiya!

Mid month I got together with a friend who is living in San Francisco right now, just home visiting on a work trip. We went to Morris East for some tasty wood fired pizza. Always a pleasure.

Roasted Vegetable Pizza with extra onions

Then my friend Molly and I exchanged vegan boxes for the holidays. Chocolate Caramel popcorn, Mac-n-chip cookie, chocolate bars, gummi bunnies, and ginger mints! Check-check-check it out!!!

SWEET TREATS

Over the Holidays I found myself indulging in something dirty dirty dirty. Mr.Noodles.

When I realized what I did to myself I vowed to find a way to make hot, spicy, brothy noodles at home!

When I re-read what Meghan Telphner has to say about MSG, and all the other names MSG can be labelled as, it reignited my fuel for the fire! No more MSG for me.

So, this is what I make:

Hot Noodz, you got what I want.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Shimmer me timbers, baby! These noodles look fiiine.

Broth time!

Small pot – Med-High

2C H2O

1 T Braggs

1/2 tsp Sriracha

1/2 tsp Lemongrass Paste

1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger

1 T sugar

 

Once that gets to the boiling point take a small dish and mix 1T cornstarch and 2T water, mix this well until there are no clumps.

Pour into the broth mixture and stir in quickly. This will thicken it a tiny bit.

Meanwhile, you should have been cooking your skinny rice noodles or whatever tickles your fancy.

This is enough broth to pour over 2-3 bowls of noodles,depending on how brothy you like your noodz.

BDBrunch

In Not-my-street-eats on January 14, 2010 at 2:57 pm

Ahh yes, the 3rd Annual Boxing Day Brunch at the Smitherbie residence.

This year we fed 19 people! Many people said it was one of the best parties they had ever been to ! Now, that’s a compliment. We had Lady Gaga and air hockey, 5 snuggies, and a massssssive sectional couch, and I had tanqueray. Thank you Colleen.

On to the food!

Gigantic Tofu Scramble

This scramble contained 3 pounds of tofu! THREE POUNDS. It had mushrooms, onions, carrots, and green pepper. Goodness it was a fine, fine scramble.

Gingerbread Waffles

This recipe from Vegan Brunch is out of control good. Luckily for us the Smitherbie residence comes complete with a handy-dandy waffle iron.

Cranberry Ginger Sauce

Again, from Vegan Brunch, this recipe is the bomb-diggity. Cranberry and ginger accompany the gingerbread waffles like it’s their only wish in life. They are all-over-it.

Hash-style Potatoes

Boiled the night before, fried up with some veggie dogs.. HASH ! Nom.

Deeericious Soup

This is one of my personal recipes and it doesn’t taste like it looks! It’s not slop, promise. It’s a lentil soup with curry, cumin, cilantro, smoked flavouring, and lots of sauteed onions. You’d love me a little more if you tried it, trust me.

Festive Holiday Salad

In this picture you can clearly see the effects of the Tanqueray. Yes, my picture taking skills were held captive by Gin and juice! IT WASN’T MY FAULT. This salad is from Gourmet Magazine, and let me tell you…it’s a winner!

Carrot Cake with Creme Cheeze Frosting

This cake has graced my blog before. It’s the Best Vegan Carrot Cake EVAR. Again, the tanqueray.

The Spread

This is our jam packed table! The scramble is on the stove.

My BDB Plate

Ohhhh the tanqueray.

More to come soon! I have some more from Mary’s Place Cafe as well as more Daiya filled goodies.

xo.
