Wraps and tacos

photo 2Eating Food should be easy and nothing is easier in the plant-based food then a wrap, burrito or taco. Basically if you are using the small corn tortillas double up, this is how they are served by Mexicans so this has to be the correct way. For non flour, wheat or corn use lettuces or red cabbage or kale. The red cabbage wrap above is filled with sweet peppers, quinoa and cilantro with a bit of Cholula hot sauce and avocado. The tacos are mushroom, onion, bell pepper and a chocolate mole sauce. To bring out more flavor keep hot sauce on hand, sea salt, amino acids and nutritional yeast. Burritos without cheese was a bummer at first but then I started eating burritos with sautéed spinach and mushrooms and that gave me a nice flavor and texture that brought the rest of the items together. The only wrong way to make this stuff is to not add enough stuff. If you can hold it with your thumb and pinky finger you have failed, add more plants and enjoy.

Plant Based Picnic on the Hudson

IMG_2101When I first thought of going on picnics as a veg head it seemed like it was going to suck. The reality of plant based eating is that their is so much to eat and sometimes the focus on fruits and vegetables forces creativity. Coconut fried tofu with sushi quinoa/brown rice, seaweed salad, corn salad, and a pint of strawberries. We ate our picnic on the Hudson while the sun set and it was nice until it instantly got freezing.
