Good Morning! Hope your Wednesday is going wonderfully so far and just gets better! Since WIAW is focusing on adding some extra veggies to your regularly scheduled meals this month (who doesn’t need that?!) I thought I’d show that veggies don’t have to be boring/and or tasteless! Veggies are amazing! Some of my favorite meals on our New York trip were veggie-centric and utterly delicious!
So without further ado…
I had this AMAZING veggie burger at 5 Napkin Burger in NYC. It was unlike any veggies burger I had ever had. For starters, it was bright red! Why??? One of the main ingredients was beets! It was so flavorful I did not miss the meat at all. I am headed into the kitchen to try and recreate this asap!
Also, don’t even think about telling me that sweet potato fries don’t count as a veggie!
These are tuna taquitos that we had as a little snack in the middle of our marathon sight seeing day. Not only were they packed with fresh tuna, but the guacamole was to die for! Guac is one of my favorite ways to “dress up” veggies. It goes with everything. Seriously. Plus, you can add veggies to your guacamole to make it even more delicious!
Mmmmm, looking at this picture makes my mouth water! These veg’d up crostini’s were the perfect snack after a long day of walking around the city. Asparagus and truffle, spinach and manchego, sun dried tomato and walnut pesto, and anchovy with arugula oil. Try looking at these and telling me veggies are boring!
Last but not least…
Hey! We were on vacation!! Looking for a way to add veggies to breakfast??
The pickled veggies in this Bloody Mary from Sarabeth’s were some of the best I have had. I actually am not a huge fan of bloody mary’s (I ordered prosecco!) but I love all the stuff that comes with them! I think I made my hubby a little upset because I stole almost all of the veggies from this drink…whoops!
What have I learned from this WIAW? #1 Veggies are exciting! #2 On vacation it is easy to get your fill of veggies, especially if you are creative! You don’t have to sacrifice flavor and fun for a veggie filled meal!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!:)
