I just want to thank AfR for making me love cauliflower. I used to hate the stuff, but I am now convinced that the act roasting is some sort of magical event that summons flavor into even the most unlikely of places. I actually get excited when I find it on sale now.

Seriously! I was so happy when it was cheap this week. Went home and roasted that baby for lasagna. Even better is the herb roasted cauliflower with breadcrumbs, it really is addictive like Isa says.

I've determined that, before I write off any vegetable, I have to try it roasted.

This week for lunches - 2nd Avenue Vegetable Korma. I made the recipe exactly as stated and it came out delicious! (if I may say so of my own cooking). I added the suggested dry-fried tofu to add some protein. I'm not serving it over rice - just eating as-is. So good. And lots of cauliflower! The cauliflower and all the veggies soak up the yummy sauce. I can't believe the only real fat is coming from the light coconut milk because it tastes very rich and satisfying.

I've had this cookbook for a few months now and haven't made ANYTHING out of it. I have made so many things out of all of the other cookbooks. I was in my first trimester when I got it and absolutely nothing looked appatizing to me, my hormones were all out of whack. I'd really like to give the book a try this weekend though.


Same here, mostly--I haven't made much because I'm doing the opposite of reduction right now! HOWEVER, the recipes are amazingly nutrient dense, so that's good - so far my faves have been the roasted cauliflower lasagna and the nicoise salad...though I'll admit I used olive oil instead of water in the salad dressing.

I'm guessing I'll be hauling this one back out and making a lot more out of it post-baby.

We had Braised Cabbage and Seitan last night. It was deelicious! And easy! And cheap! And a bunch of friends (omnis) stopped by right after dinner and said the house smelled great..."what did you have for dinner?!"

Me too! It really turned me on to Cauliflower which I never liked before. In fact, last night we had mac & flowers because we were out of broccoli and I think I liked it even better than mac & trees!

Just finished some 2nd Ave Korma. LOVE. I could eat all the veggies by myself.

I've decided to cook my way through the 'bean' section of AfR, and only have a couple left to do - Unfried Refried Beans, Mango BBQ Beans, Velvet Mole Black Beans, and Carribbean Curry Black Eyed Peas. This week I'm making the Unfried Beans and the BBQ Mango beans (because even though I hate mango, there's been so much positive feedback about that recipe here that I gotta do it). Next week will be the black eyed peas and the mole.

Lunches this week include the Hottie Black Eyed Peas and greens. They're great! I could probably triple the hot sauce because that's how we roll at the sneakers residence, but it's a great and nutritious recipe that I feel great and fulfilled eating a serving of instead of two (because that's also how we roll at the sneakers residence). I made roasted butternut squash that I mashed up with a little veg broth and some cayenne pepper because we were having sweet potatoes with something else and I didn't wnt a repeat.

Regarding the lasagne question, I didn't cook my noodles. And the packet told me to specifically.

Pre boiling lasagne sheets is for SAPS.

Thumbs up for the Roasted Cauliflower Lasagna. I am not a fan of nooch and I can't even taste it in the recipe. Win!

I made the smoky split pea soup tonight. I blended it with an immersion blender because that's how I roll. I really liked it! My usual method with split pea soups is to use curry spices, but I liked the change.

I made the tempeh helper for lunch/dinner today (I woke up at 3, so I'm not really sure what meal it was). It was really good! I think I'd like it better with frontier broth powder, because I currently use some veggie broth powder.

I should make Mango BBQ Beans again, that was really good.

I made "Quinoa puttanesca" two weeks ago. My MIL liked it and asked for the recipe.
I translated it to her and she made the quinoa puttanesca for some church party. Now the recipe makes its way round the church going housewives in our town.

I really liked it, too. When I was making it I was thinking, "why am I making boring old split pea soup for dinner?" but then of course it was fantastic.

We made the Hottie Black Eyed Peas and Greens last night (served with grits, mmm). One of my favorite recipes from the book!

I made the Bhutanese pineapple rice the night before last and it was delicious. Oddly enough, the only things I didn't have on hand were the red onion and cilantro (I don't think most people have red rice and fresh pineapple just hanging around - at least not in my culture/region). I was too lazy to do any tofu so I just threw in some canned mock duck (I love Food Fight) that I cut into pieces. If I do use mock duck for this again I would marinade it. It has more of a Chinese flavor that didn't seem to match the other flavors in the dish. Don't get me wrong, it was still really good and very addicting. My boyfriend got up in the middle of the night to have more of it and got mad when he found out I already ate the rest.

Haha I love this!

I have the Butternut-Apple Soup on the stove right now and it's making my house smell amazing.

I've come in here to announce that I've had caulipots for dinner for the past three meals. Might make it a fourth tonight.

I have had this book now for a week and have yet to decided what to make! I am so glad to find this forum and find like minds. I have yet to meet anyone near me.

I think tonight I will try Chickpea picatta with the caulipots. I will let you know how I like it.
