meal prep for the week of 3/9

decided i’m going to make this:

Cilantro Lime Rice

Poor Man’s Burrito Bowls

maybe i’ll be able to find some less expensive vegan cheese to go with the bowl but i’m not going to hold my breath. my kroger only had the daiya block and i like that for breakfast.

also, breakfast! oh shit i’ve been making these sandwiches for this week. it’s an english muffin with a tempeh patty and some daiya on top. you can make them ahead of time, wrap them in a paper towel, refrigerate and then reheat later. it’s held up fine in the fridge so far.

tempeh sausage, loosely based on minimalist baker’s

8 oz tempeh

~2 oz diced onion

a shitload of fresh garlic, like 4 big cloves

a heaping tablespoon of poultry seasoning, probably closer to 2

a lot of crushed red pepper

some extra sage

some extra cayenne

mash all that together with a potato masher, form into patties and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. they’re crumbly as shit this way so next time i’m adding a flax egg as a binder.

i’ll write another post after i make the next batch with the flax egg.

also my kombucha starter was “done” rehydrating as of last night. i made a half-gallon batch of tea and hopefully everything works out. we’ll see in a week.
