Mini Pizza Day!

As some of you may know, I LOVE pizza. I can’t think of a better food. So when it’s getting late and you think there is nothing to make for dinner, pizza will be your come to your rescue, put an arm around you, and say, “Hey Girl, chill out and eat me.”

I had package of crescent rolls (you know, the kind in that scary tube you have to squeeze to pop open…feels like I’m on the verge of a heart attack every time) and some randon veggies layin’ around so I made it all into a pizza! Duh.

You can use any veggies you like but here is what I had to work with:

Preheat the oven to whatever your cresent rolls packag says

Peeled and thinly sliced a potato and cooked in a little olive oil. I added some broth to steam them and cook them a bit faster.

Made some pesto (walnuts, basil, garlic, salt, broth, oil…all to taste) Be sure to blend the nuts alone first and chop the garlic before adding if you have a crappy blender like mine.

Ball 2 crescent rolls and roll it out into one dough for the pizza

Add your pesto and toppings (I used potatoes and tomatoes)

While that’s cooking heat up some fresh veggies like verts and brussels sprouts. Add a little salt and a few spoon fulls of maple syrup and have at it! Super easy dinner!

CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP!

So, Vegan, what do you eat?!

If you’re vegan or even vegetarian,you’re no stranger to the question, “So what do you eat?”

A lot of being a passionate vegan is about finding new recipes, making hyper fancy vegan versions of your old favorites, and impressing your non vegan friends and family with food that isn’t gross (as they were probably expecting it to be).

While I’m into all of that too, it’s not a daily goal. Let’s talk about what we eat on a Monday evening when we’re too tired to go to the store or whip up some homemade biscuits ย and gravy. We’re people too dammit and that means sometimes we just don’t feel like cooking, although we’d like to think our endless vegan energy never fails us at dinner time, it occasional does.

So here is an easy go to for me. What’s your “I don’t want to cook” meal?

Sandwich!

Bread

lettuces

cilantro

tofu

mustard

cranberry sauce

pickle

tomato

truffle salt

ย 

Cranberry sauce my new favorite thing! I use it as a spread on sandwiches and as salad dressing!

ImageI LOVE cilantro on a sandwich. And on pretty much anything else.

Don’t forget the potato chips and just remember vegan is not synonymous with healthy although the do often overlap.

CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP!

* I know you don’t need pictures of how to assemble a sandwich, but what would a food blog be without pictures!
