See Food

In addition to my miso soup, here are a couple other seaweed-y meals I've eaten recently:
Nori roll ups filled with raw "tuna" (soaked sunflower seeds, lemon juice, celery, onion, carrot), sriracha, and spinach.


and deconstructed, as a salad. You can get a better look at the "tuna" here:


Those macro rolls I love so much: (well, actually, they're filling, cheap, and easy to find - but they are really good)


They're filled with forbidden rice, daikon, tofu, carrot, and kale.
And, well, that's all for now. Gotta get that iodine.
Anyway, Shen asked and I do want to continue the curtailed vegan tour of NYC from MoFo (which, oddly enough, would have been called off due to Hurricane Sandy even if I hadn't lost the camera.) I thought I had my notes saved but apparently not. I have a bunch of ideas but I'll ask you, dear reader, too: So, is there anything you guys reccommend visiting in particular? (AbbyBean, I'm looking at you!) Or is there something you'd like to see? A veganized New York food or cuisine, a restaurant yr curious about, or what? I aim to please. Just don't send me to Guy Fieri's restaurant in search of vegan options.

  1. 'Curtailed'. Hey, who am I to judge? I actually lost a digital camera on a previous NYC trip (when we came up to see 'The Colbert Report'. I think I lost it in the waiting room area for the show when they searched my bag).

    Anyway, whatever you choose to highlight seems to work out. I especially enjoyed reading about that one bar in Brooklyn where you can bring your dog.

    1. Was gonna use the word "aborted" but politically declined. Actually pulled out a thesaurus for "curtailed."
      New York eats cameras for breakfast and craps them out for the afternoon matinee!

  2. I love those macro rolls too! They are soooo good!

    Hmmm there is so much in NYC to see, it's so hard to narrow down! There's no way to take pics in the Union Square WFs is there? I remember (from a LONG time ago) it was really overwhelming, not sure if you'd be able to get away with it. Hmmm... oh maybe Astoria?! Oh man I love Astoria :)

    1. I remember you said that last time! Good call! It's a really cool area. I can try to get to WF USq early and take some pictures. It's not actually as big as yrs sounds but it could work.

  3. I'm glad you got a camera again. I've never lost one and would have a pretty big freak out if I did (I haven't been without one since I was 12!).

    The rolls both look great. I'm especially intrigued by the sunflower seed "tuna". Such a great idea!

    I'm not familiar with NYC at all, so I have absolutely no ideas for you. Anything you post about will be interesting to me, though!

    1. It shows that you are really comfortable with a camera. Yr shots are great. Yeah the tuna is super easy and really tasty - I should make it more often.

  4. That raw 'tuna' looks so good, I might have to have a go at making it. Tuna is the only non-vegan thing I really get cravings for but I think it's more the vinegar flavour that went with it rather than the fish. The Nori Rolls look good too, I've never tried them but they always look nice :)

    1. You should; it's really easy to make. This preparation isn't really vinegary but I love the texture and taste.

  5. I have some kombu in my cupboard that I bought to make dashi, but I have never bought nori (as an ingredient), although I'm sure I've eaten it. Those macro rolls look yummy too. I love the name forbidden rice - hee!

    Although I think you have covered some bakeries before, I'd be glad to see more of those. They may have already been covered when you posted about Babycakes, but vegan cupcakes are always fun.

    1. I like nori - I find it to be one of the more versatile seaweeds.
      I'll be sure to find some vegan cupcakes for you! (SIGH) The things I do for people.... ;)

  6. How did you know I loved that NYTimes review of Guy's inevitably crappified restaurant of fatty, disgusting, SAD food?

    Your post has me daydreaming of Beyond Sushi again...did you hear they have soup bowls now? Let's see who can try them first ;-) Also, I highly recommend Hangawi for you...

    1. That review was incredible. A work of poetry, really.
      Oooh, I really like sushi but I REALLY LOVE soup bowls. However, I still think you will beat me too it, haha.

  7. Oh, are those the Macro Vegetarian/Karen and Sisters sushi rolls? I miss their Soy-tein with Spinach and Veggie Turkey with a passion that almost hurts. REALLY HURTS. Fo' shiz hurts.

    Yours,
    The Melodramatic One.

    P.S. If those are an entirely different type of macro sushi, then I feel stupid, but my above sentences still stand.

    1. I don't know if they're Karen & sisters but they look similar: http://www.flickr.com/photos/flyingturtle/3511217007/
      I think we all get a little possessive of our food...

  8. I love your nori roll lunches. Mine are often stuffed with salad, pumpkin seeds and sriracha. Maybe fried tofu if I have some. I'm usually too lazy to make fake tuna, but lately I've been making cashew cheeses and they're good for adding a punch of flavor.

    1. Do you proccess the pumpkin seeds? That sounds really tasty. I should try that. I got out of the habit of greens wraps but those are great too. Cashew cheese is so delicious in a collard wrap with bell peppers! It's been so long...

    2. I add the pumpkin seeds whole and raw.

  9. Raw tuna certainly sounds interesting. I love the nori roll ups.

    I would like to see anything and everything NYC, through the lens of Maud. :)

    1. Gena from Choosing Raw really opened my eyes to how much variation you can cram into a nori wrap :)
      She also has a great lens on NY...even though she doesn't live here anymore.

  10. I say this to myself every time you eat it, but I have to make some of that sunflower seed pate...looks really good, especially paired with the nori. I love the look of those macro rolls too.

    Any glimpse of NYC you come up with will be good in my book!

    1. Thanks, Rose. The sunflower pate is really tasty and adapatable. I want to try to make the sunflower mac + cheese from the PPK next!

  11. Mmm, those macro rolls look very awesome. I guess I'll probably learn how to make stuff like that in Texas (they have a macro segment)! And raw tuna is always a good time.
