What I Ate in Pittsburgh

In this post I detail what restaurants I tried, items I bought, and what I brought when I went to Pittsburgh.

The B52 Cafe

What I ate: The Cashew Cheese Wrap. On the menu it was listed as a sandwich but when I received it it was a wrap, don’t know if that was just a mistake but it doesn’t matter. It was really good; simple, made with vegetables like lettuce and tomatoes, olive oil and their delicious cashew cheese. This stuff is seriously delicious. It’s a feta and oh my, I can’t say enough good things about it. They actually sell this cheese in containers you can take home so if you go there I recommend you buy some because you’ll want it later. I also had an order of fries and again, exceptional. My boyfriend had their Kofta Tofu Scramble which was made with seitan bits, tofu and kale. It’s very good, I wish I had of gotten an order of that on the side of mine.

Basic Vegan Bowl

This is a simple, adaptable vegan bowl that’s fairly quick to make. One great thing about making bowls is almost any ingredient can be subbed for something else if you don’t like it, or don’t have it on hand. I’ve never been huge on the bowl, I’m kind of picky in the way I like to have a meal where everything goes together (like spaghetti.) There’s just a bunch of flavours combined into one and sometimes it’s a little intimidating for me, I mean whenever a blog  I follow posts a “bowl” recipe I usually skip by it. But hey, not every time.

This is a bowl I created one day when I had no idea what to make, but knew I wanted quinoa, potatoes and chickpeas for supper. It turned out super delicious and it’s not at all intimidating! Here’s how it all worked out, I love it, and I hope you do too.
