It's not uncommon for me to walk through the front door after work to a warm house full of delicious smells and the sounds of stirring, blending, or pots banging. My boyfriend loves hanging out and creating in the kitchen as much as I do. I feel so lucky to get a nourishing home cooked meal after a twelve hour work shift, but also to have left-overs for an awesome lunch the next day!
This gorgeous meal of brown jasmine rice with saffron and black sesame seeds is not just pretty to look at, but the taste is incredible. Pan fried apple cider vinegar soy curls are on the side, which are crispy, chewy, salty and tart. This combo is perfect on a bed of spinach. I love taking food this beautiful and vibrant to work because I get a lot of questions about it and I can spread the word about tasty vegan food.
We usually don't eat fake meat products because they tend to be hard to digest and often have ingredients that we're not into, but soy curls have been going down just fine for both of us. Our favorite way to make curls is to rehydrate them in warm water then pan fry with seasoning and vinegar to taste.
I've had a long, busy, exhausting week and I'm really looking forward to a beautiful weekend and the opportunity to go for a long run by the river. Happy Friday to you!
