try the butternut alfredo on the site. i don't know how long it's been since you've had alfredo, but if you just want a super rich, creamy sauce it will totally hit the spot. it's so crazy good.


I've been eyeing that one! My little local grocery store usually has bags of frozen cooked butternut squash, but they haven't lately and I keep holding out to avoid roasting one myself. Talk about a lazy reason to avoid a recipe, but I think its time to suck it up and just buy a whole squash already.

There's a mushroom-tofu stroganoff in Isa does it, that looks delicious. (there's also the same butternut alfredo that's on the website)

The Tofu Mushroom Stroganoff is more than delicious! Love, love, love it! Its going to be a regular here at my house. The New England Glam Chowder is also creamy and delicious from that book!

I always forget this is supposed to be a low fat book. Like with accidental vegan food, it feels like all the food in here is "accidentally" low fat since it never feels like something is missing.

I made the hottie black eyed peas again today. I have finals coming up so I didn't even do the onions and garlic and subbed powdered versions of both so I would have enough time to eat before class... And it was still super delicious! I wrapped it up in a corn tortilla because i have do many leftover feom the IDI enchilada casserole. Actually I also always sub black beans instead of the peas because I'm convinced I don't like black eyed peas even though I haven't properly tried them.

I made the eggplant kibbeh and was a little disappointed .. it seemed to be lacking something. Not sure what. I've made it before and liked it, though, so I'm not sure what was wrong. Maybe not enough flavor in winter tomatoes and eggplant?

I also made the ethiopian collard greens with CSA collards and they were delicious.

I just had a comedy of errors with the Sanctuary Chef Salad. I bought everything I needed (or so I thought) and got home and started making the eggplant bacon, roasted cauliflower and baked tofu. Everything was going well. Then I realized I didn't have the silken tofu to make the dressing. And I don't have any dressing type stuff at my house. So I brought all the components (or so I thought) to work the next day and got dairy-free ranch dressing at Whole Foods. Then at lunchtime I realized I forgot the lettuce at home. Then I brought everything home (or so I thought) and realized that I left the dressing in the refrigerator at work. So then I bring everything to work this morning (or so I thought) and realized that I left the eggplant bacon at home.

I am usually sooo careful with this kind of thing! I think I have too much on my mind with Christmas coming up. I've been eating the "salad" anyway, but I haven't gotten it right once! This recipe takes a lot of effort, it's too bad I couldn't fully enjoy it. But I got some laughs out of it!

Oh, you must try it with black-eyed peas! Their flavor is very different from black beans. Love this recipe!

Anyone else making hottie black eyed peas for New Year's Day? I know it's traditional to serve rice, but I really do like it with the gingery mashed sweet potatoes and apples. Some cornbread (from Vegan Diner) won't hurt either...

I made it, thanks to your reminder! It turned out great, and was pretty easy. I reduced the hot sauce because I'm a wimp, but it was the perfect use for my slightly overcooked black eyed peas. I'm glad it turned out well, because I have a ton leftover...

I'm making the peruvian purple potato soup for lunch today. Except I don't have any purple potatoes. Or beetroot. So it will be peruvian white potato soup! haha. Smells good. There's a crepe tonne of taters in there, I'm exited!

I did forget to wash my hands after I chopped the chilli though and rubbed my eye! OWW-EEEZ!

Last night I finally made the Tortilla Soup. It always seemed such a basic recipe to me I think I just overlooked it. Yes, it was quick to throw together but the flavors were not lacking, the flavors were awesome. I'm sorry I waited so long to make this one. I ended up skipping the jalapeno but roasted the poblanos first before adding to the soup. Used black beans instead of pintos as we finished the pintos a few nights before. I had some red hatch chili flour tortillas from a local mexican store so I baked them to make chips and added them to the soup. I loved this addition. I almost skipped that part too thinking it was a bit odd. Not sure why I was so hesitant with this recipe but I'm looking forward to making this again in the near future.

Made the Forty Cloves Chickpeas with Broccoli. So simple and dayum, so super good! I served it over a quinoa/millet pilaf. Perfectly yummy.

I always forget about this recipe, but love it when I make it.

We made the pea soup yesterday. As always, it was the perfect comfort food, especially given the weather. It's so filling.

Made the pasta e fagioli last night - delicious! It was even better as leftovers in today's lunch.

I've made most of the recipes with the exception of the pasta chapter as I'm not a huge pasta person. Time to remedy this.
