Day 6 It’s time to recreate a restaurant favorite! Have I mentioned I like cabbage? I did huh? Okay, I promise I won’t make cabbage the theme of this whole month but today's post does include sauerkraut. My first non-babysitting job was at this great little deli; Marie's deli which is owned by a wonderful cook Victoria and her husband George and the name of the restaurant was gradually changed to Victoria's Kitchen.
They serve a wide variety of Lebanese, Finnish, and a surprising amount of Vegetarian dishes. Everything is homemade and delicious! They aren’t like other restaurants who claim to have homemade soup/bread etc when it actually comes from Sysco…. (YUCK! ) They are the real deal so if you're in the Houghton Michigan area you need to check them out! I do not live in a vegan or vegetarian friendly town but the owner is a Vegetarian and has been as long as I've known her. Which is pretty rad if you ask me. The first time I ever had hummus was at Victoria's kitchen and to this day all other Hummus pales in comparison. Her soups, muffins, baked sandwiches (fatayer and pasties) and breads are amazing and she makes a killer falafel and Middle Eastern plate! Also her breakfasts cannot be beat.
One of my favorite meals was her sauersuds spiced with her famous seasoning blend, fried with onion, sauerkraut and served with a side of(or drizzle in my homemade case) of Russian dressing the humble potatoes becomes outstanding. When I don’t have a bottle of her spice blend I’ll use: WEBER Grill Creations N'ORLEANS CAJUN Meat Grilling Seasoning. Her blend is much better but this works!
**There are many great meaty meals also but Vegan blog so we are focusing on the veg.
