Vegan Pizza!!

I know, Lisa already told me... it looks like a giant goldfish shaped pizza.
This isn't a food blog post, so I won't post my recipe yet, but...

This was one yummy pizza I put together tonight. It was A LOT of work, but all that work made me super duper proud of my awesome vegan pizza.

Whodathunk that pizza would be 'hard'?? Well, the sauce was homemade. I made the 'mozzarella cheese' (a concoction of cashews, tofu and a bunch of other spices). I made the 'parmesan topping' (walnuts and nutritional yeast concoction). And then chopping up veggies is always a challenge for me. It did take me about 2 hours, start to finish...

I realized, while taking a shower tonight, that I did accomplish a lot. I'm proud of what I did today. I should forgive myself for being a little yelly today to a couple of children who refused to listen.

Not only did I spend 2 hours cooking a pizza (not including the big vegan mess in the kitchen that needed to be cleaned), I also did Body Pump this morning, fed the children a healthy lunch, waited in pick up line, went grocery shopping, stopped by 'Lilly's Garden', washed all the sheets and put all the beds back together, cleaned up the children, read two bedtime books and had them all tucked in and asleep by 8:00.

That's why right now I'm indulging in a glass of Chardonnay and not feeling guilty about it.

My next planned vegan adventures: Stuffed Shells with Garlic Bread and then Seitan Stroganoff with steamed Brussels Sprouts.

At this pace, I don't see how I'm supposed to be a skinny vegan eating this way. ;)

  1. I had to go all the way back to April to find a post appropriate for this. This is random but as I was packing up some leftover parsley, I thought you might enjoy this Mom tip: Vegetarian and vegan recipes often call for fresh herbs. I love fresh herbs but it seems like I only use them in one or two recipes before they wilt and I have to throw them out. Plus, they cost 2-4 dollars a bunch. Problem solved: I chop the whole bunch with my Chef's Chopper (mini food processor), use what I need, then freeze the rest in plastic baggies. Whenever I need some for a recipe, my freezer is stocked!

    1. Great tip, Lori! I have freezed herbs in the past, but never thought of chopping in the food processor. I've resorted to buying the pastes, they last and are easy to measure, but are also costlier.

I love feedback, thanks so much for sharing.

Have an awesome day.
