*waves hello*

I had such a ball reading your comments in my post on foods you loved as a kid. I think I added about 50 more to my list after reading yours. I can’t believe some of us ate the same things- like sugar sandwiches!?! ;)  I think kids lose their teeth for a reason…

Looky who finally got some snow…

Rotini Tomato Pasta with 3 Minute Vegan Parmesan Cheese

I am not a huge pasta fan, but once in a while I do get a craving for it. One thing I have not had since going vegan is Parmesan Cheese. I was excited to find out that making a vegan version is really simple and involves just three ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes! The recipe I used is from Veg Family.

Vegan Parmesan Cheese ingredients:

Directions: Toast sesame seeds until lightly browned and then throw all ingredients into a blender. Process for 30-60 seconds. Enjoy your vegan parmesan cheese!

[Recipe Source]

I cannot even tell you how excited I am over this!!!

It didn’t taste exactly like Parmesan cheese, but I loved it just the same. It made the pasta come alive! I can already see myself sprinkling this on soups, casseroles, lasagna, etc. YUM!

You will not regret making this…trust me on this one!

Eric LOVED it…said he liked it just as much, if not more than Parmesan.

David Leonhardt from Glass Dharma recently sent me some of his hand-made glass straws to review. I was really excited to try out these straws given how many Green Monsters and juices that I drink each week.

Hello, my name is David Leonhardt.

I’ve been a lampworker (glassblower) for over 10 years. My wife, Gail & I recently moved from the Sacramento, CA area, to our dream of living on the Mendocino Coast. 

I started doing some work for a local glass shop in town and noticed that the owner had glass drinking straws for sale. I had never heard of these before and I am always intrigued by something made out of glass that I hadn’t thought of.  I was struck by the unique elegance in such a simple item. 

I immediately recognized that here was a partial solution to our “plastics problem”.  Now, granted, there are a lot more plastics in our world than just drinking straws, but bear with me a minute and let me put things in perspective … As of March 2008, McDonald’s serves an average of 52 million meals PER DAY!  (Per their website) How many of those served do you think were given a plastic straw?  I hope it is becoming obvious just how big of a problem these pesky little plastic straws can be.  Remember, this is just from McDonalds!! 

Crazy, eh?

Nothing makes me more happy than seeing people follow their dreams! Rock on David.

Today I would like to review the Beautiful Bend Glass Dharma Straw.

IMG_1379 

In the juice: 1 pear, 1 carrot, 1 cuke, 1 piece ginger…down (up?) the tube!

IMG_1376

My review:

I fell in love with the straws as soon as I saw them. They give such a fun elegance to any drink and it made my juice experience really fun. The best part about the straws is that David offers a Lifetime Guarantee Against Breakage which makes the straws risk free. They are also dishwasher safe, which is nice, because we all do enough dishes! I think these straws would make a unique gift for yourself or a loved one- maybe a Green Monster lover, perhaps?

Would you like a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Glass Dharma???

Comfort food all the way! We are supposed to get snow through the night here in Boston so we are prepping early by creating a comfort dinner ourselves. Though tonight we are going sweet potato syle! Nothin like it :)

I am just loving the Size Healthy links! Thank you for passing all of the goodness on.

Yay hockey!!! I cannot WAIT for the showdown between Canada and the US on Thursday for women’s hockey – I grew up playing with three of the girls – the Lamoureux twins and Marvin – so it’s just that much more exciting for me =).

And the glass straw is such a unique and sustainable idea! Would love to win one =)

You’re going to have a zillion entries for this! I have been ogling those straws for forever now, ever seen I saw them on Green + Crunchy. They are gorgeous! And, they would do wonders for preventing my ever present (kidding!) green monster mustache! :)

I really want to try glass straws, I have never been able to find any anywhere, and that would be such a good thing, and you dont throw them away after each use, eco-friendly, hello! I LOVE IT.

we got a little bit of snow a few days ago, but this week is supposed to warm up just over zero Celsius, I can’t wait! beautiful Sask weather

Hi Angela – longtime reader, first-time commenter.

Let me start by saying zomg I love your blog and your tweets. You are so unbelievably sweet and very “real” in what you tell people. Keep it up!

My thoughts on the glass straw? LOVE! I love drinking out of straws but feel so badly because most straws are made of plastic and can only be washed and re-used so many times. I always feel so guilty throwing them out so something like this would be a great addition to my budding kitchen.

Good luck to all!

Aleksandra

I’m so in love with these straws. I don’t buy bottled water, send my kids to school with litterless lunches…and yet I never gave a second thought to straws. I most definitely will now. Thank you for the contest and also for bringing up something I had never considered before – and once you see something, you can’t unsee it.

Hi Angela.
Love your blog (I’m on vacation in QC and still checking in daily!).
I think glass straws are a wonderful idea – I’ve made a conscious effort over the last year to reduce the amount of plastic my foods/beverage come into contact with, so these would be awesome.
Thanks for being you!
Cheers :)

That straw looks so nice. Being dishwasher safe is wonderful and frankly drinking smoothies and stuff out of straws is just plain fun. I was thinking exactly what Jil was with those huge swirly straws! I had about 5, but were so fun.

Ohh, I totally want to go visit their studio now. Sustainable and local (for me). I typically pass on the straw altogether, but there are definitely times when it’s nice to have a straw – especially with a nice thick smoothy (so you don’t end up dumping it all over your shirt – not that I’ve ever done that… of course not).

Those straws are so pretty! I love how progressive and sustainable they are. Maybe someone could create a sleeve to protect the straw so people can take them with them when they go out – it would really help to cut down on pollution! Your pasta looks delicious as well, and I was so tempted to make it tonight, but I’ve had a healthy vegetarian chili in the slow-cooker all day and I am really looking forward to it! Good tip for the vegan parmesan — I will use it to top my chili tonight! :)

I didn’t get to comment on your earlier post about things you loved as a kid. I have to add my top two favourite childhood foods: #1 was HP sauce sandwiches on wonder bread – I’d douse the bread with HP until it was almost soaked through, then top with the other piece of bread and chow down. #2 was cereal in a glass. I’d put cereal (Golden Grahams were my favourite) in a glass and top it with milk (and would add ice cubes if the milk wasn’t cold enough) and then try to drink the cereal down. It NEVER worked – the cereal always stuck to the sides of the glass. I eventually gave up trying after a few years, lol. I do still love HP sauce though, but fortunately I prefer it on the foods it’s supposed to go on instead of white bread!

Hi,
Love the fake parmi cheese. The one I make is 1 cup toasted cashews, 1/2 each of toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds, 2 cups yeast, and 1-2 TBS soy sauce that lends that salty parm feel. Then food process. Straws look SO fun!

Wow. . . the straw made of glass is so incredible! I am always in search of the ‘perfect’ straw for my healthy smoothie in the morning. I don’t mess around with my smoothie-it is a 32 ouncer!! I bought some thicker plastic ones and have had trouble with them cracking and/or getting smoothie bits stuck in the ridges. Would love to try a glass straw! Thanks for the review!

What a fantastic, wonderful idea! I always feel awful throwing my straws away – I try to wash them in the dishwasher, but after awhile there’s nothing you can do but let the sorry things go. I take a green monster with me to work every day in a (washed, labels removed) nescafe coffee jar! The lid screws on really tightly, it’s perfect. A glass straw would complete the experience ^~

Can you please please make some more heaven bars soon? I haven’t had the chance to try them yet <3

I think the straws are beautiful… but… I guess my question would be how do you wash them? I mean, my son’s sippy cup has a rubber straw and trust me… that little bugger is hard to clean!!! and that’s just juice! I’d be afraid if I were to drink my green monster with that… I’d get bits of flax and chia seeds stuck in them…

but beautiful nonetheless and I’m totally willing to be the experiment-or with them and discuss how to get them clean *wink*

The vegan parm sounds interesting. All these vegan recipes make me contemplate going vegan. (I’m not even vegetarian right now…). I know there are definite health benefits. Last night I asked my boyfriend if he would still love me if I was a vegan (jokingly, of course). He shrugged his shoulders and said it didn’t matter to him.

Are those glass straws easily breakable? Reusable straws is a clever idea, but how functional might they be in a commercial setting (i.e., a restaurant)?

Such a fantastic idea!! I’d love to have these straws!

I make vegan Parmesan cheese similar to the recipe you posted, but it uses almonds instead of sesame seeds & has a little miso added. YUM!

I would love to buy one of these straws. I have been wanting one for a while, but haven’t taken the plunge.

Oh my gosh, I have been dying to try those straws! Being a broke college student means that they’ve been pushed to the bottom of my list for awhile.

How fun! I think I’d start drinking everything from a straw if I had one of these!

I love the parm idea! I put it on stuff more for the texture than for the exact taste, so I think this would be a perfect substitute for me. What a great idea to make glass straws! I wonder how they feel on your teeth?

How cool are the straws!?! So stylish and a plus for the environment.

Love the straws!! I’m entering on behalf of my environmental conscious – I’ve worked with animals in many capacities and straws are always no-no’s in any establishment because so many of them end up inside animals! I drink a green monster everyday so these straws would come in good use… currently don’t use a straw but that means I practically inhale the smoothie… and I hear slow and steady does it?!

I already commented and I know the contest is over, but I just wanted to let you know that I made the vegan Parmesan cheese last night and it was super good! I think I’ll be making that quite often from now on. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Lol thinking I could win a contest from Feb ;)

I made this 3 minute parmesan and I have to say – I like it even better than parmesan cheese! It is sooo delicious.

My mother collects glass straws and I really loved drinking out of them as a child. It just made juice and cookies so fancy :-)

What a neat idea! I love the notion of cutting down on waste, and I have to admit that I do use straws. Smoothies just taste better when being slurped up instead of spooned. Anyway I can still enjoy the straw effect and cut down on waste is a win-win in my book!

Thank you for the wonderful recipe! Was looking for a nut free option of the cheese and this fits the bill!!

Re the glass straws….I have several….I love them. The clean easily with a little brush….they are amazing in smoothies (wide enough so your cheeks don’t cave in when you are trying to drink!! LOL) and I feel better knowing that I am not contributing to the landfill. I bought my first one a couple of years back…but dropped it, while on my way out, on my cement porch in – 40 weather…and it broke…I was SOOOO sad. So I purchased a few more. I have been extolling the straws’ virtues…and my adult children are eying them as are my friends (actually one of my friends actually bought one after trying mine!!). So Readers, if you are wondering if you should buy one….if you don’t win one…….YES!!! They are amazing! They would also make awesome gifts….I know that is my plan!

Was starting to be concious of the effect all the smoothies I drink could have on my teeth but hate the idea of throwing out so many plastic straw out there. This is the perfect solution!!!

I got your cookbook this week. Between the blog and the cookbook, I have only eaten your recipes this week. I might be converted. Stay the course, Angela, you are doing us an amazing service.

I apologize if this has been asked before, but how should the sesame seeds be toasted?

Reply

484 Barbara July 29, 2014

Do you have to cool the roasted seeds before blending?

I’ve been looking at the stainless steel straws, but I *much* prefer glass – these ones are absolutely STUNNING!!

Vegan parm is YUMMY!! Thanks so much!
Just wondering what the life expectancy is (I assume it doesn’t require refrigeration)
