This is a restaurant in a plaza where my bank is near my apartment. Interestingly enough, in this smallish plaza there are three vegetarian/vegan restaurants. There are actually quite a few vegan/vegetarian restaurants close to my apartment. Even though I don't eat out, it's nice to know there is such a high demand for vegetarian/vegan food!
I mentioned making juice the other day, and I wanted to show what I use to make it as I don't have a juicer. You really don't need one. I just use my blender, and then this mesh strainer over a bowl. Just let it drain for a few minutes, and then gently press down on the pulp to get every last bit of juice. You have to use a smidge of water to get the blender going. I usually use an inch or two, depending on what fruits and veggies I'm using. Your blender will let you know if you need more water. I used to think I couldn't make my own juice because I didn't have a juicer, until I saw a YouTube video using a blender and it's been heaven ever since. You can also use cheesecloth to strain your juice. Years ago I had a juicer and I remember it was such a pain in the arse to clean I barely used it. I'm assuming they've come a long way in that department since then, but this works just fine for me.
I made this super creamy mac and cheese and peas last night. I made the sauce with potatoes, carrot, oats, nooch and miso for that tang. I was out of onion because I actually forgot onion when I went for groceries on Saturday. I haven't forgotten onion in years! Onions are just something I automatically grab, no need to even add it to my list. I just used some onion powder and it was fine. I topped it with green dragon sauce which is a wonderful compliment to mac and cheese! I am seriously going through about a bottle a week at this point, I can't get enough!
Here's a big old pile of floof to make this Tuesday a little cheerier. It's pretty hard to resist if you ask me!
