#kvpinmybelly Sometimes all you need is a Chicago-style deep dish pizza. We ordered a hot pie loaded with mushrooms and olives from Lou Malnatis on Camelback Road. It reminded me of my J-School days at Medill in Evanston. That buttery crust tastes amazing. NOM!
Hot Mess on Blue Cheese bread at Rubicon Deli.
Delicious combo of Shiitake mushroom, cheddar, jack, Swiss, sun-dried tomato, tempura onion, wild arugula and chipotle mayo.
I gave up red meat and chicken for Lent. My meals revolved around vegetables, tofu and seafood.
The Bay Area makes it easy. I thought it was exciting to explore vegetarian and vegan menus in San Francisco and beyond.
At the new Devil’s Slide Trail, we enjoyed a lovely walk and picnic with portobello mushroom sandwiches from Dinosaurs in Pacifica. I adore the vegan mayo on that crusty bread.
I also found plenty of vegetarian recipes to test in our kitchen.
- Vegetable Quiche (Inspired by the South Beach Diet recipe. However, I wanted to use leftover eggs in the fridge)
- Vegetarian Chili (Hubby loved it when I added seitan)
- Leftover Thai Asparagus Soup with hard-boiled egg (Leftover Marnee Thai food and having fun with egg molds from Suzanne’s Vietnam/Japan adventure!)
- Seitan Salpicao (I modified Bianca’s beef recipe and added seitan. It worked, but I missed the smoky tones from caramelized beef)
- Brown Rice with Tofu, Dried Mushrooms and Spinach (Thanks Martha Stewart!)
- Zesty Avocado Dressing Over Green Salad (reminded me of that creamy Ranch dressing texture!)
