Sandwich Saturday - Tofurky Bologna & Vegenaise

Whoops! Fell a little behind this week. Thought I would post a sandwich Mr. Coconut made last week that he insisted I photograph because it looked so nice. It tasted great, too!

Foxy Falafel - Restaurant

After finally making it over to the Foxy Falafel food truck, I knew I had to try out their brick-and-mortar restaurant soon.

I was able to pop in for happy hour with a friend, which features an incredibly exciting $0.25 falafel ball special. That's right, all the falafel balls you could want at a mere twenty-five cents a piece. The happy hour also includes a dollar off most sides and drinks.

We ordered two of each type of falafel (curry, regular, and beet) two sauces (spicy Harissa and green tahini) and a pickle plate.

I ordered the hard lemonade habanero Bellini, while my friend had a mimosa. Yum! I really want to go back and try some of the other dishes, like Harissa potatoes.

Chik'n w. Peppers & Pineapple

I've been imagining this dish for over a week.

I need to get pineapple. I became fixated on getting more pineapple into my life beginning a week and a half ago. At first, juice seemed the best way to incorporate pineapple into my diet. Then canned fruit, frozen, fresh - until I landed on whole, peeled, cored, pineapple at the grocery store. Two, please.

With about three quarters of one pineapple: dice the fruit up into medium-large dice. Add small dice red onion, chopped cilantro. Pineapple salsa.

Gardein Chick'n Scallopini pair nicely with sweet bell peppers, white onions, and brown rice along with the fresh salsa. Finish with a good dose of a chimichurri sauce and some creamy, fresh avocado slices.

Everything about this dish was tasty. The flavors really compliment one another and it was cool to see the flavors in my mind take shape in reality. Mr. Coconut quickly finished his dish and enjoyed it.

I was trying for fancy plating, but it did not turn out quite as I imagined. But it tasted great.

Gardein Breakfast Sandwich

Frozen, two to a package, veggie sausage, English muffin, rice cheez.

These are not great, but my main issue with the product is why Gardein chose to not use Daiya slices for the cheez. The cheez slice that they have is not very appetizing, does not melt very well.

Overall, I had high hopes for these and they fell a little short. Fine for me to keep at work for a quick breakfast or snack when I don't have time to make anything substantial for breakfast.
