I have the Eggplant-Potato Moussaka in the oven and oh my god, that pine nut crema. I wanted to just stand there and eat it all straight from the food processor.

What a great story!!

I made a little appetizer tray last night for some friends with the curried carrot dip, the creamy mediterranean fake tzatziki (can't remember real recipe name), and hummus. Everything was so good! I loved the non-tzatziki - that's going to be really good in a pita with veggies and falafel.

I made the Black Bean Vegetable Soup yesterday. It may be the best soup I've ever cooked. I did add a can of fire roasted tomatoes, though. My neighbors loved it. We mixed in some Tofutti sour cream and crumbled saltines in our bowls. So good.

I just made a soy-free, gluten free version of the pumpkin baked ziti. Brown rice pasta, brown rice bread crumbs, soy-free eb and 1.5 cups of navy beans in place of the tofu in the cashew ricotta. I can't believe I've never tried this before. It is delicious and perfect on this cold, rainy day.

I made the Rice and Lentils with Caramalized Onions tonight. It was delicious, cheap and easy to make! I recommend decreasing the amount of olive oil, though, and adding a few shakes of salt at the end.

this. The romesco is amazing just on it's own. I think I even ate it cold.

I made Mac Daddy for the second time this weekend and omitted all the lemon juice in the sauce (used it in the tofu mixture though). So awesome and cheezy! And it tasted even better after a few days in the fridge! Yum, yum, yum.

Finally made the banana-date scones. Had one for breakfast this morning :) So so fabulous. Soft and fluffy with chew from the dates and crunch from the walnuts. And now I have 7 more in my freezer for another 7 happy mornings. Yay!
I definitely recommend these for the next time you have overripe bananas. I'm glad I strayed from my classic banana bread.

I made the Lower-Fat Deep Chocolate Bundt Cake this weekend to shut my mother in law up, who kept going on and on all weekend about "how can you bake without eggs???" One bite and she's now a believer. I can't believe it's lowfat, either - it's so moist and delicious!

Has anyone mentioned the Muffuletta(spelling?) sandwich? It takes some work but it's worth making! Good recipe for people who don't like eggplant but got some from their CSA.

I made the White Bean Aioli today, and it's so very delicious. I've seen others mentioning it as a great mayo sub, and I can see now they are totally right.

I'm dipping fresh veggies in it for now, but I suspect I'll find many other yummy uses for it.

Thanks for yet another great recipe!

Melissa

I made the chickpea cutlets yesterday, for the fourth time (I think?). I'm finally starting to understand why everyone's raving about them! This time around I panfried them instead of baking which I've done before. The texture was so much better! I also used one whole can of chickpeas and replaced some of the vwg with chickpea flour. So yummy.

I made the lemon bars for the first time in years for a party last weekend. They are so good - even better than I remembered - and a party full of omnis raved about them. Yay!

I made the coconut lemon bundt cake for the second time yesterday. The first time I made it, a year ago, with the coconut, for a work party and it was raved over. This time I made it without the coconut because one of my kids hates the texture of coconut, and it was so good. I also used the low fat coconut milk this time and it was still great. Not as decadent as with the full fat but still an amazing cake.

I just made the spinach noodle kugel for shabbat dinner on friday for my friend who had never had any kind of kugel (vegan or no) and she LOVED it.

I know it's May and not October but I've been having a craving for something with pumpkin! So lunch this week is the baked pumpkin ziti (I don't have the exact recipe title in front of me). Super good. I made the recipe exactly as specified EXCEPT used slightly less olive oil,about half the amount of breadcrumbs, and only a tablespoon of margarine when toasting the breadcrumbs (as opposed to the quarter cup called for). Delicious and still tastes very rich with all the cashews, tofu, and walnuts in the other parts of the recipe.

Made Mediterranean Baked Lima Beans this morning. Kitchen smelled so yummy. It made a huge amount though--if I'd been smarter, I'd have cut the recipe in half.

I didn't have any fresh mint. Does it make much difference?

A while back I made a gf version of the lemon bundt as a loaf cake and recently I made the apple peanut butter caramel bars with gf gingerbread crumbs for the base instead of Graham crackers & the red lentil cauliflower curry - all delicious!

Chile cornmeal crusted tofu + southwestern corn pudding + green pumpkin seed mole = AWESOMENESS. I didn't even fry the tofu and it was so crispy!
