I’ve sort of been slacking on the cooking. We’ve eaten pizza. We’ve eaten fast food. We’ve eaten crap I wouldn’t feed my dog! I’ve been trying to drop some weight and have been exercising at the gym at college, however, eating horribly will do no good! Counter productive I say! So, back to cooking as vegan/vegetarian as I possibly can. Not to mention I love trying to see what I can make without animal products.  This dish has no name, and its sort of a concoction of my own. I found this AMAZING roasted potato recipe for oven potatoes, but, I didn’t have any time to do such a thing in the oven, so I threw some canned potatoes in a pan with the seasoning of the oven potatoes, added some mushrooms and veggies and sauteed them in olive oil.

So here’s the jist:

1 can of potatoes
1 small can of shittake mushrooms (watch the brand! These had MSG in it, yuck.)
3 pieces of bok choy
1/2 cup of peas
About 3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of each – oregano, basil, paprika
A dash of salt and pepper

Heat the oil and add potatoes (be careful, the oil might spatter since these were stored in water) let them cook a bit since you want the potaotes crispier than the other items. Add the bok choy, I did mine whole because I like the way it looks, ha ha. Then the mushrooms. Add the seasoning, and flip the bok choy after a little while.  Keep stiring the veggies so the potatoes get nice and golden on all sides.

You could probably add some tofu or tempeh to this to add some protein, possibly some nuts? I’d think this would be yummy with sunflower seeds!
