Where did this weekend go. And Christmas is just two weeks away! Are you ready? I guess I am. Friday I headed to a very special celebration after work for the ribbon cutting and tasting menu of Vegan Fresh 2U, a new vegan restaurant from the founders of Pho Fresh! Chef John Van Huynh, who I had the pleasure of talking to awhile back, has been serving such an amazing vegan menu and consistently winning the Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenges that he and his family decided to open a new dedicated vegan restaurant.
We sampled Tofu Puff Bite-Rolls, Crispy Faux Shrimp Rolls, ADB Banh Mi Baguette, OMG Rolls, Steamed Gyoza, Kaffir Tom Yum Soup, Eastern Burger Slider, Seasoned Grilled Asparagus, All Day Breakfast Fried Rice, and a Coco-Ball for dessert.
I am ridiculously excited about having another great vegan restaurant and making frequent trips to this new location, everything we sampled was amazing and the restaurant is set up to be a great event venue option for weddings, parties, etc.
Such great dishes made my eats at home look a less exciting, but I was craving warming comfort foods in multiple soy curl noodle soups, a tofu and broccoli stir fry, and turmeric potato and soy curl stir fry.
But there was another trip to Amy’s Drive Thru for an interesting combo of vegan tortilla soup and vegan chili mac for lunch for a tasty cold weather lunch combo.
For dinner last night, I made a veganized version of this recipe for Potato Leek Soup, but subbed the milk for Miyoko’s Pourable Plant Milk Mozzarella and added a touch of liquid smoke for a wonderful blend.
It was thick, delectably creamy, smoky, and savory for a perfect cold weather treat that I recommend.
Back to it tomorrow for a busy week at work. Hopefully a good week for everyone starting with the list.
