This recipe is perfectly healthy, filling, and satisfying (you know, when you crave that cheesy, unhealthy mexican food loaded with guac…). For Catholics during Lent, we don’t eat meat on Fridays, so I made this when my boyfriend drove up from Austin for the weekend, knowing he’d need something hearty and healthy … and meatless. (He also makes THE BEST guacamole, so it was my plan all a long to make mexican food as an excuse for him to make a big batch of his magic avocado mash)
**I THOUGHT I ruined my pan and the vegetables when I heated a teflon pan and added the peppers (I smelled something foul and saw everything turn black and curl up like burning rubber) … but I’m pretty sure that was the pepper skins now. To avoid this, I would only preheat the pan for a short time. Whatever it looks like is happening to the pan came off really easily once I let it cool and cleaned it.
because my assembly skills are quite below par (I know, even I’m not perfect) the casserole was not my most photogenic meal ever. But definitely top with mounds of fresh guacamole and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise
And huge brownie points to my boyfriend for 1) making the guac (should I mention that just one more time so everyone is clear Andrew makes the best guacamole?) and 2)!!!!!! He gladly watched frozen with me while we dined on the fruits of our labor
You know those people who cannot stand to have their food touch? I am their worst nightmare. And lately I have just been throwing everything into a bowl and topping it with either avocado or hummus or tzatziki (but usually all three). And then with the fried egg on top, the yolk oozes out and covers the tender vegetables… mmmm
Several weeks ago I saw a post hopping around tumblr “like a beach ball at a Nickelback concert” of a vegan bowl - just all of the roasted veggies and quinoa and hummus and raw veggies…. that was the point of no return. I have been addicted to these veggie bowls and there is no going back now.
I would say “vegan” bowl, but (as mentioned in my last post) I have been so addicted to throwing an egg on/in everything that they’re no longer vegan bowls. But they could be! sans egg.
Ingredients: roasted diced sweet potato, brown rice, grilled mushrooms, grilled asparagus, steamed kale w. garlic. topped w. a fried egg and avocado slices
I think it’s funny that people often reply to the suggestion of becoming a vegetarian that they just couldn’t give up bacon … or burgers …
But that’s how I feel on the thought of becoming vegan. I simply could not live without eggs… or cheese… but I am ok with that.

Spending the week in Austin for spring break, SXSW being the same week was just a lucky bonus.
Las night by boyfriend and I went to G’Raj Mahal… again. This place is hands down my favorite restaurant. I’d be down to go back there tonight. Or today for lunch and then again tonight. It’s too good.
If anyone is in town for South by … you need to get to Rainey Street right neoow and go here.

I can’t say it’s the most photogenic food…
