The last few weeks have been a total whirlwind. after leading an incredible vegan tour of italy with @vegjauntsandjourneys , i was back home in lisbon for all of nine days before taking off again on another adventure. 🇵🇹 .
i had a few lovely meals in that short time, including this flatbread with sweet potato fries from @juicy.lisboa . 🍠 .
and now i’m on the other side of the world 🌎, in a place that i’ve been dreaming of returning to for more than 20 years. i studied abroad here at the tender age of 19 and fell completely in love with the place. can you guess what country i’m in?? ❓#nomadicvegan
I wanted to make a simple but delicious pasta for my daughter, and i must say this might be the best pasta i’ve ever made. smashed fresh cherry tomato sauce, garlic, with a little butter and parmigiano. simple, fresh and vibrant. watch story for sauce progression 👏🇮🇹🇺🇸
📍murphy's pub; champaign
murphy's is a beloved campus bar with the typical bar food - burgers, wings, mozzarella sticks. but the best item they serve is the irish nachos! you need at least four people to finish this giant platter. or a really hungry college student haha
they use waffle fries as nachos. cheese is sprinkled all through out and melted in the oven/microwave. topped off with bacon bites, jalapenos, diced tomato, and olives. served with salsa and sour-cream on the side. the waffle fries are golden, crispy outsides and fluffy, soft insides.
for a year, i had weekly meetings here over irish nachos and beers. best meeting location ever.
