Vegan Fridays!

Welcome back to Vegan Fridays!

Back with another recipe!!!

For dinner I made ch*ck*n (fake chicken) tacos!

It was really delicious!

I had done an order from Misfit Market.

I served it with blue corn tortillas!
I used a fresh yellow squash!

Also known as summer squash, yellow varieties of squash provide numerous health benefits. The vegetable is high in vitamins A, B6, and C, folate, magnesium, fiber, riboflavin, phosphorus, and potassium. That’s a serious nutritional power-packed veggie. Yellow squash is also rich in manganese. ead more Health benefits here.

I try to eat as many fresh veggies as I can fit in my day

I love Squash. Also I got a lot of it in this grocery box, and I ate a bite raw and it taste really good so I just diced it as garnish for the Tacos. Yellow squash is less popular than zucchini, yet just as nutritious. Because it’s a summer squash, it’s a versatile addition to many recipes. Its skin is thin enough for you to include in your meals, and it tastes mild enough to give room for rich flavors

I made my own creamy sauce

Sauce Recipe:

  • 1/2 block of tofu
  • vegan Cesar salad dressing
  • fresh cilantro diced
  • vegan yogurt
  • nutritional yeast

I dumped it all together and blended, and added more ingredients till I found the taste i was looking for. MORE NOOCH!!!! This meal was quick, delicious and SUPER high in protein! It was so yummy and incredible! I was also really hungry when I ate it. Oh I also added a couple cherry tomato’s for color. It really gave it a “chicken salad” feel.

This fake chicken, felt a little too chickeny for me but my boyfriend loved it. That was my one critique. Also I oven baked the fake meat so it was crispy, I don’t like this one as much when I microwave it.

The blue corn tortillas were delicious

It’s so New Mexican to eat Blue Corn Tortillas!

I don’t know if I was going for wrap or taco.

But Blue Corn reminds me of home. Along with beans and squash, corn is considered one of the “Three Sisters”—the staple ingredients of New Mexican cuisine. But blue corn, which is 20 percent higher in protein than yellow and white corn and has a sweeter, earthier taste, is the standout. This Native staple is found in tortillas, atole, chaquehue (see recipe below), or, if you’re lucky, pancakes. Blue cornmeal is widely available in New Mexican grocery stores, and you can buy it online at newmexicanconnection.com and santafeschoolofcooking.com

I hope you consider going Vegan. The thought of eating a chicken really freaks me out. I have pet chickens and I love them dearly. It’s hard for me to disassociate living animals from chunks of flesh.

Most chickens spend their entire lives in filthy sheds with tens of thousands of other birds, each getting less space than a sheet of paper, where intense crowding and confinement lead to outbreaks of disease. Adult chickens can have trouble breathing and standing upright and will even topple forward because they’ve been bred to have abnormally large breasts.

not only are chickens treated terribly, it’s also an industry that is notorious for being nasty to its employees. According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, slaughterhouse workers are more than three times more likely to sustain injuries while working than workers in other manufacturing jobs. They are also 30 times more likely to suffer from a repetitive stress injury than workers in other manufacturing jobs. The industry refuses to make working conditions safer by slowing line speeds or buying appropriate safety gear, which amounts to what Human Rights Watch calls “systematic human rights violations embedded in meat and poultry industry employment.” Workers are often forced to work 10 or more hours a day, and in order not to slow down, they have even been reported to defecate in their pants.

It may seem small, but every meal you don’t eat an animal for, you save a life. That’s a pretty big deal!
