It's frozen treat day! *happy dance*
I was feeling a little fruity again today, so I made some instant raspberry "ice cream" and topped it with some mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries).
I don't have a recipe for this one. It was a major wing-it job. I took some frozen banana slices (about 1 banana) and a bunch of raspberries (about twice as much as the banana), and ran them through the food processor until they became a dark pink thick (but chunky) cream. Then I poured some silk soymilk through the food processor's chute until it had the consistency of soft serve. I also added just a tiny bit of brown rice syrup for a little extra sweetness.
Moving on to the quinoa paella. It's not quite a paella, but it's a close cousin. It's a pae-ish. I got the idea for this from two different blogs: the Quinoa Vegetable Paella from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen, and the Everything But The Kitchen Sink Burritos from Small Space Sweets. I gathered all the veggies that were in the fridge and needed to be used up before they went bad; sauteed everything in a little olive oil; added one part quinoa and two parts vegetable broth; and cooked (covered) for about 15 minutes. We had the quinoa paella with roasted asparagus, and sweet potato hash. Much like the pae-ish, calling plain shredded and sauteed sweet potatoes a "hash" is a stretch, but if I call it "Sweet Potato "Hash-ish" like the "pae-ish"... it could get dangerously confusing!
