Today for lunch Shane and I decided to try someplace new, well new to us anyway, we went to Eden Pizza in the Midway area of Saint Paul.  Since I found out that they had  a pizza called “Vegan” I had to go and see if it was any good.  Since we weren’t crazy hungry, we split a Vegan personal pizza which comes with a thin crust brushed with garlic infused olive oil, red and yellow peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, and green olives.  The crust was quite crunchy which isn’t my favorite thing in the world but overall the pizza was pretty good.  Next time I think we’ll get something with more of a sauce though, if you ask, they have a marinara that’s vegan (their standard pizza sauce has cheese in it).  The also have a Thai pizza that sounds really good, the Thai Mock Duck that’s topped with Thai sauce (we asked and they said this was vegan), mock duck, onion, broccoli, swiss (we’d leave that off of course), cilantro, and crushed peanuts.  It’s a tiny place and the service isn’t exactly stellar – no waiter while we were there, just the pizza chef – but I think we’ll be back or at least have a pizza delivered.

I’m not usually much of a salad eater but I had an incredible one the  other day at Ecopolitan and had to try to recreate the yumminess.  Mine of course wasn’t as awesome, but it was still delicious!  I used a bag of greens, red onion, bell pepper, avocado, raw mushroom taco filling, salsa, kalamata olives, and some cashew “sour cream” from the book Everyday Rawby Matthew Kenney.

Dear vegan scone from the Wedge, if I blog about you, will you magically regenerate in the fridge so I can eat you for breakfast?  Pretty please?

Tandoori Wraps May 9, 2009

We had this wrap quite a while ago but we just haven’t gotten around to blogging about it.  Meals around here have been pretty boring since we’ve been sick, I don’t think anyone wants to see lots of pictures of toast 🙂  But back to the wrap!  The recipe came from this bargain book we got at Half Price Books called Wraps.  We paid two dollars for it and it’s actually a very good book, full of yummy looking recipes ripe for veganzing:

Shane made this wrap, it’s fully of ricey veggie goodness and seasoned with bottled tandoori sauce.  Easy and delicious!
