middle eastern apps

mirage middle eastern

The other day we had some delicious vegan apps at Mirage, a middle eastern eatery.  I had toomya (a potato salad type dish), foul mudamas (fava beans, garlic and evoo) and delicious hummus.

This past weekend was my birthday, so we headed to Asheville to spend a couple days.  We stopped in for coffee at World Coffee in downtown Asheville and checked out a few shops.

Then, even though we were barely hungry, we ate at the Laughing Seed Cafe, a vegetarian restaurant in downtown Asheville.

We shared the pakoras appetizer.  They are filled with sweet potato and zucchini and dipped into chickpea flour and fried.


We also shared the ‘mercury not rising’ sandwich, which is a battered seitan fillet that reminds me of a “fish sandwich”.  And a side of their Jalapeño-Onion fries!  Always delicious vegetarian food.

thursday’s dinner

Thursday’s dinner:  a middle eastern flair

Falafel and Tzatziki sauce, flatbread, hummus, and boca vegan faux meat (sautéed with mid east herbs) w/ a vegetarian gravy sauce

hummus on the left, Tzatziki sauce in the middle, and veggie brown gravy on the right

This was one of my all time favorite dinners.  There is so many vegan/vegetarian options in Middle Eastern food.  And they are ALL delicious and so easy to make.

sushi dinner

The post that is the most searched on my blog is the sushi wrapped in mamenori post. So I am happy to say that I ordered mamenori, soybean wrap paper, and made the sushi tonight with the mamenori. I ordered the spinach green mamenori from Gourmet Sleuth, I am very pleased with the fast shipping and the product is fantastic.

I also found soy wraps via Amazon, you can see them here: Kosher Soy Wrappers.  Now, on to the goodies! This evening, we made veggie sushi, miso soup and edamame salad.

Here is the mamenori, or soy wrapper, onto a bamboo mat covered in plastic wrap

Here is the sushi roll with tofutti cream cheese, basil, scallions, toasted sesame seeds, avocado, tofu marinated in Bragg’s Liquid Aminos:
