So, tonight we had the Pasta con Broccoli.

Not a fan. First real disappointment I've had from AFR. :-(

Oh well, it's only one dud out of the the first twelve recipes we've tried so far.

I haven't checked the recipe so no idea for substitutions, but you can make your own. Here is one recipe (if you can find dried chipotles - my Coop Forum has it so check any decent sized supermarkets). You can also order chipotles in adobo and other Latin goodies from extremefood.se (I haven't tried them yet, but I want to and sorry about the grossness on the site).

Thanks! Doesn't seem too hard to make your own.

Hottie Black-Eyed Peas & Greens for dinner last night. It made my belly feel so nice and warm. So simple, so good.

I made the zucchini black bean tacos and the lemon garlic yogurt for lunch today. They were amazing. So many flavors. And so filling, too.

Made the lots of lentils and veggie soup for dinner, and it was great as usual. All I had were red lentils, so I used those and man did it take this soup up a notch! The red lentils kind of broke down and expanded a bunch which made the soup real thick and extra filling.

This is what we had tonight, too!
http://reductionproject.blogspot.com/20 ... -soup.html

This weekend I'm visiting a friend (omni) in another town, and she's game to try out one of the recipes with me... does anyone have a suggestion that would be sure to impress? I'd hate to choose another dud like the pasta con broccoli.

This is my favorite lasagna recipe. I put some italian sausage seitan in it, which isn't as healthy, but hot damn it's awesome.

Scarlet barley with cannellini paprikas was excellent! it ended up being haricot paprikas because I though we had cannellinis and we didn't but still, wow! we popped a bit of sauerkraut on the top.

I just finished my grocery list for the week and will be trying the caulipots with the chickpea cutlets from Vcon, the Creamy Mushroom Pasta and the Black Bean, Zucchini, Olive tacos.

We have tried the 40 Clove Chickpeas and Broc- loved it! The Pasta Con Broc was good too! Unfortunately, we only had red wine (I did not see it needed white wine) and although the dish was pinkish in color, it tasted great. Have also made the Buffalo Tempeh, Cool Slaw, Sushi Roll Edamame Salad, and the Everyday Chickpea Quinoa Salad and they were all winners!

I made the chili verde con papas for a dinner thing last night. Pretty good! Instead of (I think) 2 jalapenos for the spice, I used one jalapeno and two serranos. Perfect spice level. Mmm. I also added broccoli and a bunch of seitan.

Is Easy Breezy Cheezy Sauce supposed to turn into flubber when refrigerated? I used arrowroot instead of flour in the amount specified, and the consistency was fine at dinner. But I just popped in for a snack and to pack my lunch for the morning and it turned to flubber. I nuked it for a minute and a half and the consistency improved slightly, but not terribly so. Help! I was really looking forward to this for lunch tomorrow.

I've had this problem with every noochy sauce that I've ever tried.

We made the Caulipots last night for the first time and they were SO good! We doubled the recipe and have a ton leftover so I am thinking we will have Caulipot patties one night this week.

that's just what happens to things thickened with starch. It's basically a nooch pudding. add a little water or broth and reheat on the stove or in the microwave and it'll come back to normal.

Made the Smoky Split Pea Soup last night. SO GOOD! We added potatoes to it too, and OmniBoyfriend added ham. He was impressed and so was I! And now I want to put smoked paprika in everything.

I made the hottie black eyed beans and greens again and didn't have sweet potatoes to go with them, so I made caulipots but used apples instead of the cauli. Prob not as high a proportion, but it still rocked.
