Using up lacto ovo vegetarian food.

I was suppose 2 upload this post last week but I was so caught up with school, work and everything else. I had a huge midterm this week so I haven't really made anything at all but I've been trying to finish all my lacto ovo vegetarian food. I've finished a majority of them with the exception of the cream cheese, butter, chocolate chip, chocolate candy, graham cracker, condensed milk and bread crumb and morning star. Oh dear god never finish my choco candy! Too much!


Dragon Fruit

I bought some from the market the day before yesterday. It was only 3.29 /lb in comparison to the usual of 6.99/lb. I just bought two and it was almost two lb. Crazy! I haven't eaten these in a while. The one I purchased was the one with the white flesh, not the one with the red/pink flesh. The one with the white flesh are mild in taste and it is not very sweet. In fact you can say it's lacking. Both the white flesh and the pink/red flesh one contains seeds that looks similar to black sesame seed. It's quite obvious there are a lot of different species of dragon fruits. There are at least 5 different species for the dragon fruit with the red/pink and the white flesh one. There is one special species where the dragon fruit is golden yellow!! I think I'll make some dragon fruit agar agar jelly from one of the thai food blogs. Hm...These dragon fruits remind me of the exotic fruit mangosteen. I miss those. I had them when I was in China. They don't sell them here. T.T If they were too, it probably cost so much.


Choco Coffee TeaBread
Anyways I've tried using up all my sour cream by making these sour cream cookies but I modified it so that it taste like chocolate and coffee and contains no eggs but it ended up like cake/bread! where's' the chewy or the crispiness?! It goes well with tea though. Dip dip :3




Baklava

Made some baklava from PamelaCooks! The agave has finally came and the phyllo dough was also waiting for me in the freezer. I think we overcooked it because the phyllo dough wouldn't golden. There was also a proud with our measurement of the nutmeg and the allspice. We added tooo much. There was a huge nutmeg/allspice flavor. It was a bit too flakey too because the syrup cooled down by the time the baklava came out of the oven. All problems on my b/f and my behalf. Other than that, the bakalava tasted awesome. I think Ill make it again!

My mom grew a lot of cucumbers in the yard and my granny gave us a lot of her home grown cucumbers as well so we need to eat some. I also need to rid myself of the sour cream, cream cheese and my wilting scallions. I've lost the sheet of paper to the ingredients I've used so I dont have the weight of each other either. Sorry.

If you have left over cucumbers you can just eat it as it is. Hm...
* You can use vegan version of these. You can use tofutti brand cream cheese and sour cream.

Black Bean Patties


I have had these tucked away in my freezer for months. I've used a recipe from vegweb.com It tasted delicious with dijon mustard and sweet relish. I have had so many sandwiches this past week that I'm so sick and tired of it.

Spinach Pasta


I was quite proud of this recipe since I didn't modify or use a recipe :3 Yay but apparently I forgot how much of each ingredients I placed in it. Lost the paper where I wrote everything.
