Sorry for the dry spell. I’m currently in Los Angeles dealing with life and family, spending important moments with my father while I can. You know how it is. And if you don’t, you may be able to imagine. But here’s my way to relieve stress: talking about food.
This particular delicacy is something I used to make all the time, my go-to food while both in a hurry and being conscious of my waist line. In the last few seconds I’ve decided to call it the lazy crazy taco. I know, me and tacos, right? Can’t get enough.
The lazy crazy taco is named this because it involves smashing ingredients together that might not necessarily belong together in a lazy way. This particular taco has sauteed mushrooms and asparagus, chopped up veggie burger patty, spicy hummus, shaved parmesan cheese, avocado and lime squished together in the comfort of a warm tortilla. It was pretty darn tasty.
And it really is that simple: you chop up your veggies and saute them in olive oil with some salt and pepper until the mushrooms are soft and the asparagus is tender. You heat up your patty on the same pan. Hell, heat up the tortilla on the same pan after that. Lather on the hummus, pile on your goodies, top off with sliced avocado, parmesan and lime. Simple, vegetarian, relatively healthy unless you have six of them– be reasonable, I know they’re good, but two is enough.
I guess the picture has mustard, but I don’t think that was involved. I
was thinking about it.
This is such a good lunch/snack/dinner/breakfast, and it really can be prepared in under fifteen minutes, maybe even ten. So get crazy, and I’d say get lazy but that’s bad advice. Unless you’re stres
sed. In which case, take it easy!
