Lazy Non-Chicken Parm

I took vegetarian chicken patties, microwaved them for half of the time prescribed on the package, then added storebought chunky tomato sauce and Daiya shreds and finished microwaving them.  Took less than 5 minutes.

Here they are, served up with creamy chive mashed cauliflower.

What convenience veggie foods do you enjoy?

Baby Taro

I love boiled baby taro. They are tender mini versions of the large root vegetable. They're quick, easy, and so filling and satisfying. Just boil the taros until fork tender (like a potato), peel, and enjoy with a little salt. So good!

Here they are in the pot:

Here they are peeled and ready to eat:

How do you like your taro cooked? Do you prefer to mash them, or make chips, or something else?
