As it says, here’s nearly everything I’ve tagged as #VeganMoFo on my personal Instagram, @jdfunks, so far this month. It’s nice to catch up after a few days of root canal hell. Things I’ve learned during my medicated downtime: I miss the days of dental insurance, J. Legume is ever so caring and coconut ice cream makes for a nice dinner.
In case you’re curious as to how I did this, the photos are taken via Gramfeed.
Day One: My weekly haul from the Lents International Farmers Market
Day Two: Making Mussaman curry paste from scratch. Recipe from Curry Cuisine
Day Two, continued: Mussaman curry-stuffed mushrooms. I was doing a sampling of with & without salted peanuts for crunch with friends.
Day Three: My go-to vegan brunch in town, the Superhero at Juniors
Day Four: Fronch toast with Upton’s seitan bacon, maple syrup & miso-coconut palm sugar caramelized figs
Day Five: Pickling kohlrabi for Speakeasy night
Day Six: More patient prep for Speakeasy night…New Delhi-style Hot & Sour pickles
Day Seven: Pad Kee Mao lunch, My Thai on Hawthorne (which reminds me to write my recipe down before MoFo is up…)
Day Seven, continued: Wok-fired brussels sprouts with chili, lime & mint at Departure
Day Eight: Finishing up the spiced summer liqueurs [detailed post to come]
Day Nine: The morning of Speakeasy night. Finishing up the 80+ ginger pecan tart shells with espresso-coconut water ganache
Day Ten: a behind-the-scenes of last night’s bourbon & bitters-glazed pineapple upside-down cake slices going out to the crowd
Day Eleven: Cheddar-Seitan Bacon scones (…cue my toothache telling me these are too hard to eat)
Day Eleven: Impromtu cheese plate for J. Legume & friends. Farewell, pickle surplus.
NOT PICTURED. Day Twelve: Root canal, day one. Nothing to see here, move along.
Day Thirteen: Dinner after root canal horror, continued
Day Fourteen: In which there was a window of productivity with Bake and Destroy’s Pretzeldogs
