In the mood for a sandwich?

Well it’s been too long but I’m planning to get back to cooking and posting (I swear!). I’ve just gotten back from a couple trips out of town, one international, which it’s on my to-do to do a posting about eating vegan while traveling. Anywho… I wanted a good sandwich tonight and was too lazy to go to my favorite staple Ike’s Lair. So I threw together this bad boy. But who cares about a sandwich right?! Well this was my first time using tempeh bacon and I’m a fan!

Ingredients
Daiya cheese cheddar slices
Vegenaise
Kale
3 slices of tempeh bacon
Mack’s Flax Sprouted Bread
Sliced tomato

Directions
Heat the bacon according to package
Slap it together as you like
Nosh!

“Cheesy” Kale Cauliflower Bisque

PicsArt_1384400598149And I’m back in the kitchen! So I’ve been thinking a lot about soups lately, probably because the weather is getting cooler and it’s a comfort food. So I whipped up this bisque with a few simple ingredients.

Ingredients

  • Cauliflower ( I used orange) – about a 1/4 of the head chopped
  • Kale – 2 leaves chopped
  • Cheese of choice (I used Daiya Cheddar) – 3 handfuls
  • Garlic – 1 generous spoonful
  • White onions – 1/4 onion chopped
  • Almond Milk – about 1 cup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil

Directions

  • In a sauce pan combine salt, pepper, milk and cheese on low heat stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes
  • In a saute pan, add olive oil, cauliflower, kale, garlic, and onions on medium heat until vegetables are tender. Add 1/2 cup of cheese mixture to vegetables and cook covered for about 5 minutes.
  • Add vegetable ¬†mixture and cheese sauce to blender (I used the big cup of the Nutrabullet), blend until creamy and smooth.
  • Top with a sprinkle of cheese
