A vegan cooking blog + random animal pics. Yeah, another one of those.

Leftover round-up = magic
Hey, I wasn't planning on posting anything today, but this came together so nicely I couldn't resist. I had some leftover tofu fakin' (thinly sliced tofu that had been marinating in soy sauce, maple syrup, and liquid smoke), sweet potatoes, half an avocado, and some arugula that badly needed eating. So I made what I'm calling fakin' sweet potato hash. First I sauteed the fakin' until it was nice and crispy, then the sweet potatoes (I had the equivalent of two medium-sized ones), some pepitas, and half an onion until they were brown. Then I turned the heat off and stirred in the avocado, some whole-grain mustard, and smoked paprika, and served the whole mess atop a bed of arugula. This was really good! Funny how I've made several highly engineered meal enterprises that turned out less than fabulous (see my last post)--meanwhile this improvised slop was totally gourmet and delicious. Go figure.
