1  Post-Juicing carrot pulp fritterz, GLUTEN FREE. in Vegetarian / Vegan by blupaisan on: January 28, 2019 01:27:53 PM

Juicing lately and not happy with all that precious leftover pulp that gets composted.
This time, after juicing carrots,  I decided to eat it!

Had 12 cups of pulp to work with. There were occasional  large bits of carrots mixed in and I removed them.
Sauted 5 chopped shallots and 3 cloves of pressed garlic.
Added them to pulp, put in a beaten egg, half cup of veggie broth, three quarter of a cup chickpea flour.
Mixed well, let sit for 10 minutes.
Pressed into patties, fried on medium heat in avacado oil, 5 minutes per side in a cast iron skillet.
Here in this picture I am using vegan Chipotle mayo as a spread. Tons of other options...anything you might think for a condiment that tops a burger.

Texture was a new experience for me, definitely pulpy! Carrot flavor just barely came through.

Now I have about a dozen cheap healthy meals.  It made 18 patties.

2  Bok Choi ribs with Rutabaga Hummus in Vegetarian / Vegan by blupaisan on: January 22, 2019 02:31:33 PM

This turned out yummy with a nice mix of both textures and flavors.

The spread...
Steam or roast 2 cups of chopped rutabaga (I tried both and found no difference in flavor). Cool. Put in blender with 3 T olive oil, 1 large clove minced garlic, one can of drained chick peas, one quarter cup tahini, and a dash of lemon juice. I had none so used lime and it was nice.
Blend on lowish speed. It will require much poking and prodding in the blender since it is quite dry.
Wash bok choi, cut off leafy part. Dry where you are gonna put nomnoms or else it will all slide off.
Spread chilled hummus on , shake a bit of paprika for color, top with salted sunflower seeds and one cut up black olive per unit.

chow down and know you are eating something really healthy yet nommy!!!

Thanks to Acadian Driftwood for sharing the produce from her veggie farm.

3  Winter Inchie House in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by blupaisan on: January 14, 2019 11:09:22 AM
I have not been crafting for awhile for various reasons.
I truly did not think I could but got the urge last evening and decided to try no matter what the outcome.
I was pleasantly surprised that my body and brain cooperated in making this winter inchie house.

front entrance with welcoming snowperson

side entrance where someone left a sled that Mom wouldn't allow in the house. Bummer.

view of two sides featuring cats. The woodstove pipe is a piece of paper clip with a wad of tinfoil as the top protector

The cat cannot stand the torture of the birds at the feeder so she nudges the window open to wave her paws at them. For this transgression, she will be denied her treat of sardines this evening and she will refuse to speak to Mama because of it.

kitty sitting on the back of the sofa, being a good girl. her tail went straight up when she saw a ginormous person taking her picture.

The inside of this thing is full of tape and prop sticks. For some reason my Modpodge refused to work. I wish I could doctor up the inner bits to look nice when i peep thru the window but i have no idea how. Suggestions much appreciated!!!

4  Pumpkin Pie Tea in Vegetarian / Vegan by blupaisan on: January 11, 2019 08:23:40 AM

Acadian Driftwood has been giving me wonderful produce lately from her farm. This time it was winter squash.  In this pic is what's left of the cooked squash. After cooking it, I had several pints of water , all nicely flavored with essence of squah. It sat in my fridge for a bit, as I KNEW I could use it somehow.
Today I heated some up, generously sweetened it with agave syrup,  and shook just a tiny bit of premeasured spices in.
It's great! I also tried adding a tablespoon of my plant milk (veggemo brand) and it made it nice n creamy.
Now I know how to use up that entire batch of water.

I got this neato card from blupaisan. It glows in the dark! Sadly I could not get a photo of it glowing. But trust me, it's super cool.

It's painted on a piece of clear acetate and backed with black paper which gives the impression of night time. The kindling at the bottom are real sticks. Very clever idea!

Thanks blu!

managed to take a shot in the dark, no pun intended, of the fire card I made....
