Sweet Potato Stuffed Shells with Cashew Alfredo | RECIPE OF THE WEEK


This week I stumbled across this wonderful recipe
thanks to the social-media sharing by Laurent DUBET and Matt Baker. Thank You! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It looked so yummy, and the ingredients so simple and easy to get my hands on 
(seldom the case in many recipes I stumble across), I just HAD to try it for myself! ๐Ÿ˜€

Quite a while back, I came up with the idea (RECIPE OF THE WEEK) 
of trying out new recipes I find online, weekly.
But I've been very preoccupied and also having a hard time finding recipes I find interesting,
that don't contain hard-to-get ingredients.

Hopefully, this will be the first post of many, 
on my quest to vet out good recipes to share with you all! ๐Ÿ˜Š

So how did it go?

The recipe itself was very easy to follow and easy to make.
Unbeknownst to me, unsalted cashew nuts are insanely expensive ๐Ÿ˜ฎ (at least where I live)
so I made due by making half of the amount listed in the recipe.

This worked out well, and I got two filling portions for my mother and I out of it!๐Ÿ‘

Tastewise it was SOOOO GOOD!
The flavours of the cashew sauce and sweet potato stuffing, paired with the tomato sauce were on a whole new, restaurant quality level, I gotta say!

I'm giving this recipe a strong 7,5 out of 10.
Would I recommend? YES!
This is a recipe you do not want to miss out on!๐Ÿ˜‹

Do you have any suggestions to recipes I should try out for this segment?
Or did you try this recipe? Let me know your thoughts!

Taco Taco Burrito Burrito! | ORIGINAL RECIPE


TACO TIME!

I'm a HUGE taco-lover, always have been; so of course, coming up with the ULTIMATE Taco Recipe
has been a priority of mine.
For some time actually; a lot of trial and error๐Ÿ˜‚.

I recently came up with this recipe, after a session of experimentation;
I feel it makes for a very round and savoury taco-flavour.
Even my Non-Vegan Boyfriend LOVES IT!


So, shall we get started?๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ingredients:
1 Red Onion
2-3 Large Garlic-cloves
300g/10.58oz Vegan Meat-Replacement Farse
2 bags of Santa Maria Taco-spice
Smoked Paprika spice
Nutritional Yeast
Vegetable Cooking-Oil
Salt and Pepper
Water

+
Tortilla Chips
Taco Hot Salsa Sauce
Tomatoes (chopped into small cubes)
Taco Wraps
+ and whatever toppings you may desire


How To
Chop Red Onion in two, then into thin half-moons.
Finely chop the Garlic.
Heat up a pan, add cooking oil.
Add Garlic and Onion into the pan.

Fry them in the oil on medium heat, until the onions look semi-translucent and shiny; 
make sure they don't start to colour or burn.

Drizzle 1-2 teaspoons of Smoked Paprika spice, and stir it in.
Then add ca. 2-3 teaspoons of Nutritional Yeast, and stir that in.

Fry it all on high-medium heat for a good 5 minutes; then add the Farse.
Stir it together thoroughly.
Season with sprinkles of Salt and Pepper, and stirfry for a good 5-10 minutes;
feel free to add more Smoked Paprika spice.

Now add water (ca. 3-4dl/10.14l.oz)
(enough to make it stop making that sizzling noise, when it's in the pan).
Then add 1 bag of Taco-spice, stir it in.
Then add the other and repeat.
Feel free to add a little more water as it bakes in it's own juices for a couple of minutes.

Place the Taco Wraps in aluminium foil and heat in the oven for a couple of minutes.

Spread the Salsa Sauce in a thin layer on your wrap, add farse, crush Tortilla Chip into crumbs on top, then the tomatoes, then wrap it up; and VOILร€!

BON APPร‰TIT!

TIP! 
My boyfriend likes to put his wrap in a hot pan, for a few secs, to fuse the wrap shut, 
which is very nifty!

Recipe of the Week | NEW SEGMENT!


RECIPE of the WEEK

I've been flirting with the idea of trying out a new recipe every week, for a little while now.
Like most people, I am a creature of habit; once I find something I like, I keep doing it.
And when it comes to cooking, it can get a little stale eating the same dishes over and over again.
Therefore, each week, I'm going to go on an online recipe quest for new undiscovered faves.
And the best thing is; you don't have to scour for new recipes, I'll be doing it for all of us;  I'll find new recipes; try them out, tell you what I think, and if you see one here that sounds delish, the recipes will be readily available through direct links!
I'll be your personal recipe bloodhound!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

If you have any recipe-suggestions, that you think should be tried out, and enjoyed by more people,
do leave it in a comment below!
And tell me what you think of this little recipe-adventure of mine!๐Ÿ˜Š
