Wild mushrooms, tofu, wild rice and wild kombucha eyes, or how to make a really long title to optimize search engines
Search engine optimization is on everyones mind, every body wants to be at the top of the list when people go a' searchin'. It is most obvious in the most obvious, you know those titles that pretty much sum it up so much you dont even have to read the blog post - and the fact is I dont. I like to be enticed to read something, you know a little mystery. The most popular way that people do this is by saying their long and drawn out title accompanied by "and a give away" or " and an announcement." Now lets be honest how often do you scroll right to the bottom to get to the teaser? I know I do. So let me cut to the chase. Vegan and vegetarian food is on our menu a couple times a week at least, we are not always plowing through the creatures of this earth sometimes we pillage from the flora as well.
These potatoes were so sweet I bet if you squeezed them sugar would drip out -
....and yes they ARE that purple!
Tofu is an acquired taste for a lot of people and it makes little sense as to why since it basically absorbs what ever flavor you cook it with. This is a nice and simple plate with fried tofu and sesame oil with green onion.
This tofu has wild mushrooms that I found a couple days ago (see first image), green onion, soy sauce and sesame oil to kick it up a tiny bit.
The wonderful people at Goose Valley sent me some wild rice to try and we have enjoyed the heck out of this stuff. It cooks up nice, doesnt blow apart like some rice can and it is loaded with good earthy, grassy flavor.
We have been having it as a side dish to some other meat entrees so since this isnt about meat I will show you the rice with an egg, one of my favorite ways to have rice.
Homemade beers and root beers last year, kombucha this year. A couple Saturdays ago we went to a small producer vendor fair in Brooklyn and Mombucha was there. Well to make a long story short I bought a scoby (symbiotic colony of bacterias and yeast) and I am making my own. So there you go, no teaser at the bottom, no bells and whistles, nothing to win, nothing to take away what-so-ever!
