Sweet Potato Pizza Pie

Whole wheat dough, ginger, bourbon barbacue sauce sweet potato, radish, carrot, onion, serrano, garlic chive, rosemary and basil. 

Avocado, cilantro, and  garlic


The starch from the sweet potato did a great job neutralizing the sugar in the barbecue sauce.

Whole wheat dough, bourbon barbacue sauce, black eyed peas, corn,  turnip, radish, carrot, onion, serrano, garlic chive, rosemary and basil. 

Added the usual
Avocado, cilantro, and  garlic

Have you realized yet that I love pizza?

Sauteed pea greens, carrot, sweet radish, corn, black eyed beans, garlic, onion, serrano, and radish

My dumb ass decided to cook some beans and rice just before heading to Mexico for 12 days.  I made so much, 7 of my last 8 meals  will be based upon them,  costing me about $5 total.

Cooked brown jasmine rice, pinto beans, with raw cilantro onion, serrano, garlic and salsa

Cooked brown jasmine rice, pinto beans, cilantro onion, serrano, and avocado topped with Sontava and Ponzu

I'm  the type of person who could eat the same meal every day and be happy (as long as it has avocado).  I look for to my Mexican cuisine that awaits.  I am going with 2 other vegans which should make things easier.  However if someone goes out of there way to give me food that is non vegan I will graciously except.

Naked and Bloody Pizzas + a couple other bites to eat

I've gotten to a point where a pizza not taste right without avocado but when I put the avocado on afterwards you can't see the ingredients below, so from now on I will take what I refer to as a "Naked pic" before placing uncooked toppings on my pie.

Naked Pizza
Whole wheat crust, grape and roma tomatoes, onion, garlic, yellow chili pepper, serrano, jalapeño, grilled eggplant, carrot, rosemary and basil

I added cilantro, avocado and raw garlic after cooking

It really does not get much better than this

After a trip to the farmers market i added a few new ingredients

Whole wheat dough, beets, radish, roma tomato, yellow chili pepper, onion, jalapeño, serrano, carrot, bean sprouts, garlic chives, rosemary and basil

Once again I added avocado cilantro and more garlic chives

The beets were interesting, at times it made my pizza look like it was dripping blood.  It added a powerful flavor and a nice change of pace

My own personal party platter for dinner
Mashed avocado, baba ganoush, bean sprouts, cilantro, jalapeño, serrano, tomato, yellow chili, onion and whole wheat pitas

Even with the fan on it still felt like pepper spray in the eyes, made me cough as it cooked, made my nose run as I ate it and was freaking delicious. Kimchi Dumplings cooked in the wok with Yellow chillies a large onion, 2 carrots 2 jalapeños, 2 serranos, cilantro, and 1 chipotle pepper. Dipped in a sweet chili sauce. 

That's what I call breakfast

For the first time in over a year I actually cooked white rice in my rice cooker, above it I steamed some Baby Bok choy and then added  some stir fried garlic, garlic chive, onion, carrot, jalapeño, serrano, yellow chili, with some ponzu sauce

Breakfast Left overs
White rice, lentil masala dip, serrano onion cilantro, garlic chives topped with a little sriracha

What's the best thing about the Super Bowl? Cheap Avocados

Last Sunday was the Super Bowl and that meant dirt cheap avocado's.  My first trip to the market I bought 7 my second trip I bought 5 and Yesterday the last day of the sale I bought another 8

I planned on making avocado taco's but it turned into guacamole instead.
2 avocados, 1 jalapeño,1 yellow chili, 4 cloves garlic, 1 serrano, 1 roma tomato, 1 carrot, 1 small onion, cilantro, lemon juice, 1/2 a bottle of Sontava (habanero hot sauce) and some Ghost pepper sauce. Served with some taqueria salsa, some corn tortillas, a few chips and a couple chili's

Thant was breakfast yesterday, and yes that is a breakfast beer.


Pita, sprouts, cilantro, onion,garlic, jalapeño, grape tomato, garlic and hummus with sriracha


Whole wheat crust, roma tomato, jalapeño, yellow chili, serrano, onion, onion chive, shallots, garlic, carrot, chipotle pepper, basil and rosemary.  Topped with with avocado more raw garlic and cilantro

always delicious

Todays breakfast
Hummus and avocado Tacos
 Corn tortilla, avocado, Jalapeño or edamame hummus (2 of each), yellow Chile, tomato,cilantro, onion, jalapeño, topped with taqueria salsa and served with a bowl of sprouts
I chopped everything length wise so it would better stay in the tortilla. I couldn't resist adding the sprouts to the taco as well, plus a little sriracha never hurts.

One of the best breakfasts I ever had.
