One of the nice things about shopping through Market Wagon is being able to order things you can’t get out here in the boonies.
And one of the things I got in my last order was chapatis, a kind of flatbread.
There’s a vegan recipe coming, but first: I had also ordered a rib eye steak, but I’m sorry to say I’m sad to report that it was disappointing. Very … hmmm … well, there’s no way to put this that won’t offend vegetarians, so all vegans and vegetarians should now skip to the next paragraph. It was very heavy on connective tissue or some shit. It was like chewing a silicone hairnet.
Here’s a closer look at the wrapper, so you can see what’s in it. CARROTSSS!
So I ate some of it and, a couple of days later, sliced that piece of crap as thin as I could and sauteed it with mushrooms, onions, garlic, and kale. I heated up a chapati and wrapped the filling in it.
Much better than that steak as steak.
Here’s the vegan thing I made Sunday night. I had to take a super close up of the leftovers, because we ate most of it before I could take a picture.
Yeah! First, I dumped a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), juice and all, into a saucepan, covered it, and let it low simmer for maybe half an hour, until the liquid was gone. Me, I added Penzeys Sweet Curry (“Hand-mixed from: turmeric, coriander, cumin, fenugreek, ginger, nutmeg, fennel, cinnamon, white & black pepper, cardamom, cloves and cayenne.“) to the pot, but you do you.
While that was cooking, I fried some shiitake and portobello mushrooms in a dry pan, then added olive oil, onion, garlic, and kale. When the onions were translucent and the kale was a little wilty, I added the chickpeas and some salt. We wrapped that in chapatis, too.
Anywho, I’m taking vegan to Thanksgiving. I hope I remember to take pictures.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about something flat.
