There was a lot of tasty food this past week. So much in fact, that I had a hard time which photos to use for this post.
To start the week off, I made us blueberry waffles while Laura peeled some clementines. They went well together.
Continuing the breakfast theme, I made this smoothie with almond milk, fresh ginger, fresh turmeric, frozen peaches, frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple, frozen blueberries, frozen honeydew, and dates. It was very creamy and delicious. The frozen fruits came from a premixed blend at Costco.
French Meadow is one of my favorites. I had a large spa salad there for breakfast this week as well. I like the mix of greens, beets, carrots and seasoned tofu. I had a fruit smoothie with it as well.
Rustler Pizza at Pizza Luce. Mock duck, rinotta cheese (they make it themselves out of nuts), banana peppers, bbq sauce, red onions, and pineapple. There is a slice in the fridge calling my name right now.
I’ve had the sofritas at Chipotle a few times now. This one was free thanks to a coupon I had. The sofritas is tofu with some chipotle spice. I’m happy to see more vegan options, but I prefer the veggie burrito for two reasons. The first is with the veggie, you get the guac for free; guac costs extra with sofritas just like a meat burrito. No thanks. Second, I find the sofritas a bit salty for my tastes. I enjoy the seasoning, but it’s just too salty. Yes, there is guac in the picture above, the coupon made it free too. Nice.
Here is one of the arepas I made this last week. We enjoyed them so much in Mexico, I thought I should make them again. I haven’t made them in many months. They are made from corn flower and then cooked as a patty. Cut the patty and insert toppings. It reminds me of a Mexican pita. We filled our with some homemade guac, fried plantains, black beans, and some salsa. I chose to cook mine in a cast iron pan to avoid frying them as they are traditionally done. They were really good.
Finally, the biggest thing I ate all week. A paper masala dosa from Dosa King. It’s nearly three feet long. The masala is normally inside, but they chose to put it into a little metal bowl out front. It made for a much nicer photo. They also served it with coconut chutney and sambar (soup). The dosa is made from fermented rice and lentils, and then fried very thin like a crepe. I make them at home, but never this big or this thin. It was a nice treat. I love eating them when I was in India last year.
