this is it!
summer 2019 is HERE.
i mean, for sure it's raining; but still, the time is upon us.
today is the day, and that's a big ol' deal to me.
summertime is pretty frickin' tight,
and i wish the schedule allowed for more enjoyment of the season.
instead i'm all up on that AMPERSAND TATTOO work grind.
but at night?
it's hot fire and great vegan food.
thai black rice jauns with sesame-ginger-garlic chili sauce!
the goooooood stuff.
i even used a wok.
ha. yeah, i did.
coconut oil fried crissspy chili tofu.
i mean, c'mon-
a few dried chilis and a lotta coconut oil and those lil bad boys are fresh as hell.
how about the SAUCE?!
i got a cup of baby grape tomatoes;
two cloves of sliced garlic;
1 1/2" skin-on sliced and diced organic ginger;
3 T lime juice;
3 T tamari;
2 tsp sesame oil;
2 T coconut oil;
2 T chili paste;
3 T agave;
1/4 tsp black pepper;
1/2 tsp cumin;
2 T cilantro;
1/2 tsp coriander;
1/2 tsp cayenne;
1/2 cup water...
plus 1 T non-GMO organic cornstarch slurried in to thicken it up.
i had a couple of potatoes, cubed, boiled, and fried up in the leftover chili garlic sauce.
plus, shredded purple cabbage, red onion, scallion chunks, one stalk of celery.
and coriander all tossed up together.
that's fresh as fresh can be.
cucumbers, avocado, and a lil lettuce to pop it off.....
bye bye spring.
it's summertime now.
a huge bowl of noodles was a good way to get into a rainy night.
i know, the recipes aren't precise these days....
there's things happening.
all of 'em, really;
never quiet, never soft.....
