this is the first MEAL meal that i’ve cooked in my new house so i’m pretty pleased with myself.
until now there was a lot of this:
this was a weird meal. i didn’t know if it would pan out but the results were tasty results. i wanted a trashy potato thing but also needed vegetables so this was the compromise.
2 handfuls arugula
2 handfuls baby spinach
1 carrot sliced as thin as you can
1/2 patty pan squash (those scalloped UFO looking guys), sliced really thin
1/2 avocado, diced
2 big scallions, sliced thin
8 basil leaves, chopped
1 tsp seed mustard
3 tbsp olive oil
zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
mix all the vegetables and greens in a bowl. combine mustard, oil, yeast, lemon and zest to make a dressing for your salad. dress lightly.
10 nugget potatoes
salt and pepper
a generous sprinkling of nutritional yeast
preheat oven to 350. slice your potatoes into medallions and spread out on a baking sheet. drizzle with oil, season and nutritional yeast. bake in a single layer until crisp (flip them halfway), about 15-20 minutes.
MUSHROOM HOT COMPONENT
8 crimini mushrooms, sliced
1 vegan sausage (i used field roast apple sage sausages), halved and sliced
2 green tomatoes, sliced
3 cloves garlic
a sprinkle of daiya cheese
heat oil in a pan and sauté mushrooms with a bit of salt. once they are nicely cooked add the sausages so they start to brown, then the tomatoes and garlic until just softened. sprinkle cheese just so it melts.
put down a generous pile of salad, top with some potato slices, then top with the hot mushroom/sausage/green tomato.
