Welcome to WE EAT

Fuel your body and it will fuel you.

I love food and I eat a LOT!  I can eat as much as most men.  I don’t hide it either.  My friends can’t believe how much I can put down.  A whole Chipotle burrito, down to the last grain of rice that fell out on the tin foil, no problem!  They shake their heads.

Burgers & Beer: The Buddha Burger

Delicious blend of Middle Eastern flavors atop a roasted cabbage foundation.

A Masterpiece Almost Too Beautiful To Eat

Veggie burgers are often thought of as discs of fake meat or pressed vegetables designed to resemble a hamburger. If you’ve been following my Burgers & Beer series, that just ain’t so! Most meat eaters are exposed to vegetarian burgers at restaurants that cater to a meat eating crowd. The veggie burger on the menu is an afterthought to satisfy the occasional veg head that arrives with their carnivore pals.

This burger was inspired by a blog I stumbled upon called Vegan Richa.com. Wonderful recipes and photographs. She takes vegetarian food and turns it into 5 star restaurant fare.

I put a few twists on the recipe and eliminated the bread. I love buns but I wanted to appreciate the full flavor of this burger without the distraction.

I served this gorgeous, easy to make burger on top of roasted cabbage. Recipe here. This time I used purple cabbage. You can follow the same recipe but reduce your roasting time by 5 minutes or so unless you like the edges really crispy (I do!).

Thank You Martha Stewart

The Goddess of home entertainment goes meatless!
A vegetable metamorphosis you have to eat to believe!

A vegetable metamorphosis you have to eat to believe!

If there’s one person on the planet who can prove plates full of veggies aren’t just for veg heads, it’s Martha Stewart. While far from a vegan manifesto, the title alone of her new book, meatless, can influence the masses to think outside the slaughterhouse.

Bill Clinton showed the public it’s possible to reverse illness by way of your mouth. Martha Stewart is showing the public that meatless meals can be decadent, trendy and impressive to the eye.

“Ladles”- Drifter’s Chili

If there was a Chili's Anonymous, I'd be a lifelong member!

Shutterstock Ladle-Welcome to “Ladles”, an ongoing series of healthy soups, stewps and gumbos!

Given the fact I can’t draw any better than a first grader (if that), the only way I can relate to an artist staring at a bare canvas is when I stare into my pantry ready to create a new homemade chili!

I’ve been accused of having tunnel vision when I run, well… if they only could see me in the kitchen building my chili! Like a witch over her cauldron, I won’t let anybody near, let alone taste, my special potion until it has simmered and the flavors have matured over a low flame.

(My resume includes First Place Winner of the best chili of Boy Scout Troop 222! How many years ago?…..not sayin’):)
