Day 2 Jamaica trip 2024

I’m writing this post a few weeks after returning to Ottawa but the next few days I wrote while I was in Jamaica. It was a very busy trip but this was a day I got to stay at the resort. Jewel Paradise Cove while my friend figured out our plans for the remainder of the week.  The resort posts the activity schedule on the app, on tv’s in the room, and on a screen in the lobby. I had seen that there was a resort tour at 11:00. I have stayed in many resorts and it usually the company that you booked with doing these tours. I liked that there was no need to wait for a specific tour rep and the hotel was doing this. My friend was out up and early for the garden tour. I slept in and went for breakfast at 10:30. I wanted my friend to come in the hotel tour with me because I have no sense of direction but we later discovered we weren’t getting each others text messages and I thought she was still on the garden tour.  I had received my friends text that she was disappointed there were no plantai

I made Vegan Hackspod mung bean vegan egg recipe with Urad dal or Split black Mapte Beans


I love VeganHackspod’s Mung bean vegan egg recipe. Here is a previous blog comparing it to Justegg-vs-mung-bean-egg-using-vegan.html

I wondered if  different lentil would work I didn’t cook lentils much myself before I was vegan but my mom always did. I only had Urad Dal or split black mapte beans a couple of times. My mom would save it for special occasions telling me it took longer to cook. I remember it being so creamy as a soup. It was only $3.99 for the bag about the same price as mung beans. Looking at the instructions they don’t take longer to cook and I looked up some recipes online they are used in pancakes. 

I soaked them after four hours they are so fluffy and expanded so much. The washing was a little more work for these than the mung lentils because it’s hard to tell if it’s skin or dirt on them maybe that’s what my mom meant by longer cooking. 

The next day I blended the lentils with some spices and plant milk. I used ripple milk and I used the magic bullet to blend so it wasn’t perfect but I liked the added texture. 

 

I don’t have a big pan right now so I cooked them in a pot to start with this took around 15 minutes. I added some vegan butter to the mix and after 10 minutes some more plant milk. 

I wanted to know if this mixture would be a good omelette so after 5 minutes of cooking I took some out to cook in my mini cast iron pan later.  It set so well I could see baking this as a quiche or vegan egg bites in the future. 

I cooked the cooked mixture with some veggies then I added some vegan cheese. I think it turned out pretty well. 


After the scrambled mixture cooled it also looks pretty good. I did find it has a slight bitter taste to it if there aren’t any veggies in it but that could be the spices I used. I like this recipe I will make it again. Let me know if you make this.
