Vegan MoFo Day 2 – Junk Food Forever!

Junk food! In the Fake Meat and True Love household, it’s like a religion. We have a Friday night tradition – we eat a bunch of junk food and watch movies that are so bad they’re good. It’s a fantastic way to spend a night! Well, tonight is Monday, but there’s still room for junk food.

One of our favorite junk food meals is the fish and chips taco. The beauty of junk food is that it’s often prepared from prepackaged food, which makes preparation a snap. In this case, the tacos were filled with Gardein fishless filets, a bag of fries, Leahey’s cheese sauce, and some malt vinegar. It’s uncharacteristic for us to use so much prepared food, but we tend to make an exception for junk food night.


Convenience food makes perfect junk food!

Another junk food staple is the jalapeno popper. For tonight’s dinner, we got all fancy business and deconstructed them a bit. We took some fresh jalapenos from the Farmer’s Market, cut them in half, and filled them with a mixture of Kite Hill cream cheese, Wayfare bacon bits, and garlic. We topped them with a little bit of panko, and got them into the oven at 425 degrees for about 35 minutes.


Using more prepared foods!

Last but not least, we had a little bit of street corn. We’re a bit past grilling season here the Pacific Northwest, so we gave the corn a quick boil before topping it with some Just Mayo and a bit of chili powder. What a treat!


Photography and steaming pots don’t mix, but I assure you there’s corn in there somewhere.

Another great meal is in the books – happy eating, friends!


All put together – such a delicious meal!

  1. Fish and chips in a taco seems so strange to me – at once really familiar and really strange, as I grew up with fish and chips and only had a taco for the first time a couple of years ago. I’m intrigued enough to try it! Gardein products have just arrived where I live, so I’ll have to keep an eye out for some fish.
