Today I got home from work like so many other people in western civilization – very hungry. My stomach was growling the whole way between work and home. It was at this moment that it made so much sense to me why so many people eat at fast food restaurants. As a vegan, though, I am lucky enough to have very few options in the world of fast food and, therefore, am never tempted to put such gross “food” into my body.
So instead of eating at a greasy fast food restaurant, I made my own fast food! It’s quite different from most fast food, though. Last week I bought a whole bunch of leafy greens, including collards and swiss chard. I thought that steaming them would be pretty tasty and fast. At the last minute I found a red pepper that I also steamed with the greens. Then I found some brown rice vermicelli that I bought a whole ago as well. I boiled the water, threw in the noodles, and put the greens on my handy-dandy steamer thing that sits in a regular cooking pot. While that was working, I made a tahini dressing using a couple of cloves of garlic, some lemon juice, and some Braggs. The end result was filling, tasty, fast, and super nutritious!
It just goes to show that sometimes fast food can be awesome and healthy! Here is the photo of my concoction:
