Today is my wonderful husband's birthday! Happy birthday, my Love!
Rob is not a vegan, but he does eat vegan most of the time. We joke that he's a vegan like Samuel L. Jackson was vegetarian in Pulp Fiction.
Rob has veganized a number of his recipes for me, but when I asked him what vegan recipe should be featured on the blog for his birthday, he said he wanted to make vegan Bloody Marys.
Regular Bloody Marys are not generally veg, Worsteshire sauce usually contains anchovies. A no-go for vegans and vegetarians alike.
Rob's bloody mary recipie for 2 drinks:
10 oz. Tomato or vegetable juice
3 oz. Vodka
3/4 oz. Lemon juice
<1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
> 1/4 tsp celery seed
6 dashes hot sauce
6 dashes soy sauce
Mix all of the above in a pitcher with three ice cubes. Strain into glasses filled with ice. Add about 1/4 tsp prepared horseradish to EACH glass, stir with a celery stalk.
Add three olives to each glass and serve.
Bloody Marys are Rob's specialty on Sunday afternoons during football season!
While Rob was mixing up drinks, I made up brunch to eat! Pumpkin biscuits, Lightlife vegan sausage, sautéed mushrooms with chives and lavender, and some vegan brown gravy (from the Happy Herbivore cookbook).
