1  Fava Bean Burger in Vegetarian / Vegan by dreadlocklove on: March 28, 2016 12:23:16 PM
My vegan lunch special at work this week is a fava bean burger.  Among the ingredients in the patty itself are green peas and asparagus.  I chose to create two sauces for this dish.  At the base is a creamy lemon-dill (you can see some of it spread on the plate) and on top of the patty is a sun-dried tomato and pumpkin seed pesto.  The remaining toppings consist of fresh vegetables.  A simple spinach, cucumber and radish salad with an orange-sesame vinaigrette is served on the side.

2  "Ital Stew" in Vegetarian / Vegan by dreadlocklove on: March 24, 2016 02:05:20 PM
Here was the vegan dish of the week at work.  An adaptation of an "Ital Stew" recipe my friend has given to me when I first began following a vegetarian diet back in the day.  On most days it contained sweet potatoes, carrots, plantain, corn, black eyed peas and chickpeas, bell peppers onions, garlic and ginger, coconut milk, handmade dumplings, and spices.  To garnish, oven-baked plantain chips.

I actually had a nightmare about this stew one day during the week.  Haha.  It sold fairly well but I was still on edge all week.

3  Vegan Shepherd's Pie in Vegetarian / Vegan by dreadlocklove on: March 20, 2016 06:12:41 AM
Hello all.  A lentil Shepherd's pie is what I made for work last week but I didn't have a chance to share until now.   

"In celebration of St. Patrick's day, we adopted the pub fare theme and are preparing Shepherd's pie for this week's vegan option. The base is a lightly seasoned lentil-walnut blend that is topped with what is our animal-friendly version of colcannon, or Irish potatoes. The mash contains cabbage, leeks, sun-dried tomatoes, and non-dairy creaminess. Also served is a various shades of green salad garnished with clover sprouts!"  The vinaigrette was a mustard grain one.

7  Spinach Artichoke Salad in Vegetarian / Vegan by dreadlocklove on: January 30, 2016 04:00:58 PM
I created this spinach artichoke salad at work a couple of weeks ago and am happy with how well-received/eaten it's been but our customers.  It's even one of my personal favourites currently.

The aim is that the salads be fairly simple and quick to execute/build, not to mention cost-effective.  The ingredients used were artichoke hearts, spinach, chickpeas, almonds, and a  wild rice blend.  It's tossed in a basic lemon-oil vinaigrette before being portioned into the clamshells and is also served with a container of honey-lemon vinaigrette in case the customer wants a bit more oomph.  I personally enjoy the basic vinaigrette on its own because I prefer that the earthy flavours of the ingredients be most prominent.

8  Buddha Bowl (on a plate) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by dreadlocklove on: October 22, 2015 08:06:00 AM
I'm putting more effort into clean eating and after browsing Pinterest, felt inspired to make a buddha bowl.  This one has sauted onion and chard with roasted buttercup squash and chickpeas, quinoa and maple-tahini dressing.

Wholesome and animal-friendly.

9  Puff Pastry Treats in Recipes and Cooking Tips by dreadlocklove on: October 02, 2015 07:22:03 AM
Here's what I made in baking class this past Wednesday, the theme being pate feuilletee (puff pastry):

A Jalousie, with a almond paste and raspberry jam filling.

A Fruit bar, with more almond paste, sliced pineapple, and an apricot glaze.  The nuts along the border should have been pistachios but my teacher didn't have any on hand so I used hazelnuts instead.

Paillettes, made using the leftover from the other projects.

I had baking class today and the focus was bread.

Orange-Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Orange-Cinnamon and Pecan Sticky Buns

We had to choose toppings to create a pizza.  I went with a orange-fig and arugula pizza, with goat cheese and balsamic glaze.

Banana crumb muffins were also made, but I forgot to take a photo of those.
