Thankfully, yesterday I went on a bit of a shopping adventure and got some awesome goodies:
|I actually got this a couple of days ago, but it is just as exciting and new to me today :) I plan on making some vegan doughnuts this weekend!! Stay tuned this weekend for lots of pretty doughnut pictures!|
I also bought some SUNflower's <3 (Thank you Trader Joe's!)
I'm determined to lighten up the house on these rainy days. I don't want the whether to impact my mood. (Starts to happen after days and days of rain. I need my sunshine!)
Yeah, yesterday was pretty fantastic. Especially.. Dinner!
I made Honey Lime Glazed Tofu w/ Strawberry Peach Salsa and Spanish Quinoa.
Spanish Quinoa & Salad.
It was DELICIOUS!!
Now for a photo and recipe..
Raw Vegan Sushi!
Recipe makes 3 rolls
For the 'rice'
1/2 head of cauliflower, chopped
1/2 c jicama, chopped
A couple shakes of sea salt
3 T agave nectar
1/4 c rice vinegar
Process all ingredients in food processor/chopper until it has a rice like/crumbly consistency. Do not over process or it will turn into a mashed potato type of substance. Pulse it.
3 Raw Nori Sheets
9-10 shiitake mushrooms
One at a time, Lay out Nori sheet and pat 'rice' onto sheet. Slice shiitake' mushrooms in half and lay them in a straight line on the 'rice.' Lay cucumber, avocado and sprouts. Roll the nori over, and continue until your sushi roll is complete. Damp fingers and touch the edges of the nori sheet to get it to stick together. With a sharp knife (and very carefully) slice each roll into 6-8 pieces. Plate & serve. (and eat!)
