Yummy winter leeks for another Monday

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

These are some things I found around that I enjoy... except for the picture of me (that'd be weird if I found that on the internet....)

Starbucks soy hot chocolates! I did say I was going to phase any soy out of my diet... but I find this to be very hard especially since I am trying my vegan endeavor at the same time. It will happen eventually...! (i'm sure once its not winter anymore...)

The guy second from the right it Brett McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords. Awesome, awesome band/duo from New Zealand. They are very funny, and their skit about LOTR is very humorous... You can see their humor in the first photo which actually has the actual members. I recommend their "Jenny" skit on youtube!

This girl is very cool! Her outfits are very whimsical, which is always very cool to see and her poetry is delightful to read.

I am also posting a recipe!! The picture doesn't show how good it is... Nevertheless! Its very a very yummy vegan dish that I make all of the time.
Simply add olive oil to a pan, let it heat but not too much (not making fried dough here...) Might want to put it on medium
2. Take one leek (or two, you can never have too much leek) and cut it so that it is facing you horizontally. Thinly! You will have little rings.Cut close to the green but not all the way up. You can rinse now!
3. Put the leeks into the pan and watch as they brown and sizzle (and now for the beans!)
4. Have a can of white beans nearby (drain as needed). Add them to the pan with the leeks looking yummy. Since the beans will be pre-cooked, you are only heating them up and letting them get a bit crunchy.. so wait until they are crispy looking (that's how I prefer them)
5. Yum yum!



  1. I love the Conchords! My fave is "Brett, You Got It Goin' On". I can't wait to see Brett in The Hobbit:D

    That recipe sounds so good, and I'm always needing new ways to work with beans, they get boring much faster than other foods. I'll have to try this.:)xx

  2. eeek amy is such a cutie!
