Vegan fast food


It's been quite a day. We didn't even get home from activites until almost 8:30 and I still had to get dinner on the table! What I made might not be the prettiest most enticing dinner in the world but it was on the table in 15 minutes - can't beat that!

We had tofurky beer brat sausages sliced and cooked in a pan with one 20 oz can of pineapple in unsweetened pineapple juice. You just cook it over medium high heat until the juice is gone and the sausage and pineapple are browned. We like this with a spicy brown mustard. While that cooked I threw some asparagus in a tiny bit of water and let it cook - once the water was gone I let it just brown a little bit (no oil) and then squeezed a fresh lemon over it and added salt and pepper. I had a honeydew melon already cut up in the fridge and a sourdough baguette. The produce store I shop at gives you a free baguette whenever you spend $25 or more - and I doubt I've ever spent less than $25! I meant to make a caesar salad with that dressing I made the other night but I forgot. Oh well - it can be tomorrow's lunch!

Thanks - like I said, it isn't gourmet but it did the trick ;-)

That is a fantastic idea for a quick meal! My DH loves those sausages! Nancy, I haven't had time to comment lately, but your food looks so awesome and you are so creative. You have a lucky family!

I saw those tofurly beer brats but didn't know how good they would be. Now I will have to give them a try. Looks great with the pineapple

That looks amazing! I'm not overly fond of a lot of fake meat things, but anything with pineapple gets an A+. :)

Bryanna - thanks so much for your comment - it made my day :-) The dinner table is a pretty central part of our family and our life!

Kleopatra - why thank you :-) I think next week will be a little more productive but this week has been a good example of what we eat when short on time!

Hey Julie - I think you do great considering you're a student and all. My repertoire in college was way more limited!

Patty - I definitely think the tofurky sausages are worth a try. I often take them when we go to a BBQ and I love watching people try one and admit "not bad..."

Vegancore - I know not everyone cares for the fake meat products (for a variety of reasons) but since I'm cooking for four people I try to keep everyone happy :-) It's funny - because sausage was the only meat I didn't mind growing up because it didn't *look* like anything!
