Recipe Monday: Mandarin Mango Curry “Chickn”

Ever since my mom accidentally bought Gardein brand faux meat I’ve been in love, experimenting and cooking weekly with all the different “meats”. Finally, I came across what in my mind can only be called a perfect meal. I introduce to you, Mandain Mango Curried “Chick’n” over brown rice with spinach leaves.OH YES.

Ingredients:

Gardein Mandarin Chicken

Brown rice

Bag of Spinach leaves

Archer Farms mango curry sauce

Mayonnaise

Vegetable oil

Begin by boiling your rice, or tossing it in the microwave like I do with my boil in a bag style.

Pour some oil into a pain and begin frying your “chicken”.

While that is frying, take your mandarin sauce, mango curry, and mayonnaise and combine in a small bowl. It should be about equal parts mayo and mandarin sauce, and as much mango as you’d like (I use quite a bit). Feel free to add some extra red pepper flakes if you’d like it spicier!

Once everything is done cooking you can put it together. Now, I have OCD so I’m really particular about the presentation. I start with about 3/4 cup of rice in each bowl, then add on a thin layer of spinach leaves, then the “meat”, followed by the pouring on of the curry.

Enjoy!

Like I said this is one of my favorite meals I’ve learned to cook. Let me know if you try it!

Recipe Monday: Pizza with Home Made Dough!

I know, I’ve done a pizza recipe already. Kind of. This time, though, I’ve got a recipe to make the dough! and a different (all vegan) pizza!

Okay, so For the dough you will need the following ingredients:

4 1/2 cups  all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon  instant yeast
1/4 cup  olive oil
1 3/4 cups water, boiling

Mix these ingredients in a large mixing bowl until dough is, well, dough-ey. Now, preheat your oven to 350 degrees while you chop vegetables.

Spread your dough across your pan (I know ours isn’t round, we should get on that…) with the help of a bit of flour to keep it from sticking  then spread tomato sauce or pizza sauce (even marinara/pasta sauce works) across your dough.

Then, add your cheese and toppings!

My roommates and I made two pizzas; one my favorite spinach and ricotta and another with onion, tomatos, yellow peppers, spinach, and vegan cheese.

Then, place the pizza/s in the oven and cook! Until the crusts are golden brown. Once they’ve reached that shade of perfection take them out, let cool for 5 minutes or so, then cut and dig in!

YUM! Also, the vegan cheese melted sooo well, it was a perfect gooey cheese! Enjoy!
