Boca Spicy Chick'n Burgers and Potato Salad

I was lucky enough to take a quick trip to the USA on Monday with a good friend so I loaded up on some Boca burgers that I still cannot find here. Tonight for supper we had one of the Spicy Chick'n Boca burger on whole wheat buns with tomatoes. Sides of fresh local carrots and celery and I made a quick potato salad that had a lemon/dill dressing from Crampton's market and cut up green onions topped with a few bacon bits.

I topped it with a combo of earth balance and Frank's Red hot sauce for the bottom layer then added artichoke hearts, black olives, pineapple, left over ground seitan and some Blue Sheese. yummy!!!

Seitan "ham" stuffing, potatoes and asparagus

Even though it was super warm out today I made Bryanna's Setian "ham" in the toaster oven. It turned out pretty decent even though I was missing 1/4 of the ingredients. I was craving a sunday night dinner but did not have time over the weekend so we had it tonight. I pan fried some baby potatoes and steamed some local asparagus with some homemade cranberry sauce and stuffing on the side. YumYum

Taco Salad

My mother brought me some fresh Romain lettuce out of her garden and I had some veggie ground round mexican flavour so decided to make a salad. I served some salsa and tofutti "sour cream" on the side with chopped up olives and tortilla chips. yummy

Potato Salad and Sandwiches

My parents were over for supper tonight and we wanted to have something nice but does not require hours of cooking in the oven. I have not made too many potato salads in the past but must say I am very impressed with this one. 95% of the ingredients tonight were picked up from Crampton's Market. If you still have not been to Crampton's....drop everything right now and go to the corner of Waverly and Bishop Grandin. I assure you will not be disappointed. Excellent selection and amazing customer service!
The sandwiches are on delicious whole clove garlic bread (a must for when you go to Crampton's), with dill hummus, local cucumbers and tomatoes, lettuce and garlic sprouts.

"Creamy" Dilly Vegan Potato Salad
2-3 lbs of baby potatoes cut in half
1 tsp salt for boiling water
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
2 dill pickles, chopped
1 bunch of fresh dill, chopped
3-4 tbsps tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp vinegar (I used Apple Cider)
1 tbsp pickle juice (straight from the jar)
1 tbsp dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste.

Boil potatoes in salt water for 15-20 minutes making sure not to overcook. Add chopped onion, dill and pickles into a bowl. Add the rest of ingredients right into the bowl and stir to incorporate all ingredients. Drain potatoes and add to sauce coating all pieces. Top with vegan bacon bits just before serving. Enjoy.
