Given that my afternoon destination was the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival, there was a certain irony to what I had for lunch:
Canadian bacon and broccoli mini quiche. In my, drumroll please, RAMEKIN! No more making EVERYTHING in muffin tins!
This bad boy contained 2 pieces of canadian bacon that I browned up with a bit of onion and about a cup of broccoli, then tossed in the ramekin with 2 eggs, a splash of milk, and a sample of applewood smoked cheddar (!) I got at the grocery store and saved, cheapskate that I am.
Baked at 325 for 20 minutes and broiled for 2 until ridiculously golden and gorgeous on top
I tried to keep lunch on the small side, since I knew I’d be doing “a bit of sampling” (or so I thought) at the BVFF. HAH. THERE WAS SO MUCH DELICIOUS FOOD! This is a tiny, TINY sampling of various deliciousness available.
There were a squajillion veggie burgers, a ROCKIN’ “veggie pate”, falafel that was nummy…
And in general fake meat like you would not believe…
There was WONDERFUL ethnic food, including this AMAZING Indian vegetable stew and halavah…
There were a gazillion things that are super hot in the blog world- crazy camel dessert hummus which was as RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS as everyone says it was (the inventor was actually there!); Pure bars (actually didn’t care for those); Amazing grass (not bad); aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand…
PB and Co! Their flavors are as amazing as everyone hyped them up to be- I tried the honey one and the dark chocolate one and the maple one (seriously- ate a LOT today!)
Another hot blog item- SO delicious coconut milk ice cream- UNBELIEVABLE line for this one but it was tasty
More coconut ice cream, also scrummy:
A plethora of cool stuff involving kelp:
And finally vegan chocolate hazelnut ganache that was basically the best thing I’ve ever tasted:
And yet… of course I took all the swag I could get my greedy little hands on.
Oh man. Good times. If you get a chance, Bostonians, check it out! It’s still going tomorrow!
