Everyone gets lazy, right?
Or is it just me and my circle of friends?
We all have our moments when we just don’t want to do certain things.
Today I didn’t want to go out to buy fruit and I had pretty much nothing left in the kitchen, but I think I managed pretty well for someone who had nothing. I had 5 leftover cucumbers, some cabbage, a few tomatoes, a red bell pepper, 2 calamansi and some seeds, nuts and spices in the kitchen.
What did I make? I peeled the cucumber and made some cucumber noodles by just peeling it and peeling it until I reached the core. Repeat that with all the cucumbers. After that I chopped the cabbage really thinly. Chopped the tomatoes and mixed everything. I also made a really simple dressing using sesame seeds, some water, 1 bell pepper, 1 tomato, 2 calamansi, some nutritional yeast and a pinch of salt. Poured that over the salad and topped with with chili flakes and I was pretty much set. It would have tasted better with more calamansi though, but at times like these, you gotta make due with what your lazy vegan bum has.
If you look at it though, it’s not too bad for a “whatever is left in the kitchen” type of meal, right? Whenever you are left with few options, your creativity and skill gets put to the test.
What are the things you’ve made at times when you pretty much had no food? I’m sure there are much more creative dishes out there than mine. I’m quite proud of what I created though with what I had.
Peace and Love,
