VEGAN CURRY CHIK-N SALAD

This is a salad that I have seen at my work, and even though I don’t eat meat, it looks fantastic! So out of curiosity of what it tastes like, and pure jealousy of not knowing, I decided to make a vegan version!
First in a frying pan with EVOO, roast up some sliced red bell pepper slices and cashew nuts. You can do them together or separately; it’s up to you; the peppers may take longer than the cashews. Once they’re roasted, place them into a mixing bowl and add some green Granny Smith apple slices, and mixed baby greens. Set aside and save.
Next cook up some non breaded vegan chickenless chicken slices. You can use any brand you prefer, but non breaded grilled vegan chicken worked best for the exact look I wanted to achieve. Once that’s all grilled, add it into your mixing bowl.
Then in a bowl, add some vegan friendly vinaigrette salad dressing and equal parts of yellow curry. Mix the two together making a lovely yellow curry vinaigrette dressing. (Yellow curry can be found at whole foods, but can also be tricky to find. Pay attention to the curry ingredients because some MAY have dairy, but they’re are vegan ones available).
Finally, dump the desired amount of dressing into your mixing bowl and toss everything together! Once everything is flavored in dressing and fully mixed, place on a plate and chow down! I may not know what the salad that inspired this exactly tastes like, but I do know that this one I made is scrumptious and refreshing! Peace, Love, Grub!!

CHICKENLESS CHICKEN PARMESAN (FOOD HACK)

I was watching a tv show, and in the show they had a chicken parmesan dish, and I ate this dish many times so I decided how I could make a vegan version right then and there. I was able to make a good hack really quickly with the few ingredients I had, and boy was it delicious! Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and then start working on your dish!

For my chicken, I used Boca brand chickenless patties. I started by pan frying the patty to a nice crisp yet soft texture. After the patty was cooked, I placed it on a baking sheet covered in foil. 
I then heated up some marinara sauce on the stove, and I added some mushrooms to the pan and sautéed them all together. Once that was heated up, I poured the sauce and mushrooms on top of my chickenless patty.
Next I sprinkled some vegan parmesan cheese all over my sauce and patty and then later some sliced vegan mozzarella on top of that and sprinkled some more parmesan on top of those slices. I then place the baking sheet into the oven for 10 minutes.
Be careful when taking out the pan from the oven because it gets pretty hot. But once the cheese looks melted it’s ready to be transferred to a plate via spatula and ready to get in your belly! I truly loved this food hack and will be doing it often now! Peace, Love, Grub!
