…also the easiest vegan gravy ever!
Dating a vegan chef has its perks for sure. Like learning a new way of making sauces and gravies. This brown gravy is awesome. Pinto beans, salt/pepper, a little tamari. Rice milk to thin it out. Blend. Done. You can use white beans and sage and make the easiest white gravy for biscuits and gravy ever, and it sure beats making a roux and eating flour-gravy-on-flour-biscuits!
I got these “Nature’s Burger” things from the salvage grocery, the pinto beans and rice milk are from the salvage, and the peppers and onions are dumpstered. Grilled up the burgers/onions/peppers, topped with gravy. Done. Quick, easy post-run lunch.
A friend bought me an antique waffle iron from the thrift store so I’ve been making a TON of waffles lately!
On top of that, I’ve been finding lots of bags of flour and sugar in the dumpsters lately so I ave more than enough ingredients. I usually combine the dumpstered whole wheat flour with some home-ground flours of various sorts… Usually rice and spelt. Sometimes rye, oat, or something else.
I even found a bottle of pancake syrup, but to be honest I give it to friends… I’m a purist and only really like maple syrup.
Batch number one from yesterday’s waffle party, coconut-Oreo-fudge:
Batch number two, chocolate-cherry-cayenne
We also found several bags of tangerines and a pineapple so of course we had to have juice along with our waffles!
