Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of What I Ate Wednesday! I’ve been experimenting a lot lately getting ready for Lent (just over one month away!), and I think I’ll have some great recipes for you in the next couple weeks. One of them is the Vegan Tuna Melt Wrap pictured below. Guess what I used in place of the tuna. GUESS!!!!! You’ll have to scroll down for the answer.
I took my mom to visit my grandparents last week, and grandma made soups and fresh bread for us. I love pouring the soup over torn up pieces of bread, it’s especially satisfying on cold days (and we had an ice storm the day we left).
I’m a big fan of VeganEgg from Follow Your Heart. It comes in powder form and you whip it up with ice cold water. I usually add a teaspoon of nutritional yeast to the powder first. I put ice and cold water in a glass and pop it in the freezer for a few minutes, then strain it. Some people swear by mixing the powder and water in a blender. I haven’t tried that technique yet, I just whip the tar out of it with a whisk. It’s really important to Whip it Good (a la Devo) to get a the right texture. Anyway, then you can scramble it or use it to make omelets. You can also use it as an egg sub for baked goods, but I think it’s too expensive to waste on that.
This omelet is filled with shredded Daiya cheddar, minced soy, and veggies. I sprinkled a little black salt on it as it finished cooking to give it a nice eggy, sulfury taste.
I finally found Daiya Cheezy Mac at Meijer a couple months ago, and I hid it away as if it were my most prized possession. But then I realized I should just eat it. So I did.
My Tuna Melt wrap! I’m still working on an actual recipe, but the main ingredients are jackfruit with seaweed. It wasn’t exactly like tuna, but it was fishy. I will try it again next week.
And finally, I got this box of filled chocolates for Christmas. So many people are under the impression all chocolate contains milk, and therefore vegans can’t have chocolate. FALSE. There are lots of vegan chocolates out there, and they’re delicious. I tried to show a little self restraint, and it took me an entire week to eat all these 🙂
