Despite the lack of photos, I have been eating.

See.

That mushroom I mentioned last post was finally put to use, and maybe even benefited from the extra marinade time. Lacking a BBQ I baked it in the oven for 25 (ish) minutes at 375, and it was just as juicy and tasty. The marinade was a take off of Joanna‘s (Yellow Rose Recipes), take off as in this is what I wanted to make but I’d forgotten to buy the ingredients so I wound up using rice wine, red wine vinegar, and presumably a few other things I can no longer recall. Very tasty.

To serve I sliced the mushroom over top of Tofu Basil Ravioli in a sweet marinara sauce with vegan soy cheese melted over top. The Ravioli was not home made, although I would recommend you make it yourself as although easy, tasty and filling. The soy boy version is too bland for my taste. The ravioli would be better filled with a vegan Ricotta recipe like the one in Vegan with a vengeance or even if the tofu had been marinated at all. But with a tasty sauce and mushroom pairing the blandness can be over come into something great for a working lunch.

Recovery is in sigh


Tonight is the first night my face is feeling somewhat back to normal. So in celebration Geoff and I decided to buy some Pizza and eat a meal for once. We grabbed an Amy’s thin crust pizza, no Cheese, Vegan of course from the frozen section and brought it back here.

Now, Pre-Made Frozen pizza isn’t bad enough. I decided I wanted to add some fake cheese to the mix so after oiling up the pizza stone and opening the package, I take a moment to tear up some Toffutie Slices and brush a little oil on them. Follow with a grind of fresh pepper and bake according to package directions. Near the end I took two minutes of broil time and once removed from the oven I added some ground basil.

I’ve got to say, Amy’s Pizza with Caramelized onions is Brilliant. If you don’t want to, can’t or simply don’t have time to make yourself a decent pizza this is one hell of a way to get there.

And as Pizza is never enough of a treat on its own, we also opted for some Vegan Ice Cream and the failed brownies I made a while back.

The brownies were a bit drier as they had been sitting out all this time, however due to my handicap (wisdom teeth extraction) I had mine chopped and mixed into the combo of Soy Decadence Cherry Nirvana and So Good Regular Chocolate scoops. Geoff opted for a classic piece of brownie with accompanying Ice cream scoops.
