The sweet potato biscuits induce total bliss. I needed to make a little something to stretch the leftover gravy, veggies/beans and millet in the fridge into a meal for 4. The recipe came together fast and baked even faster. Happy Happy !

I got mine in the mail today. I can't wait to start making things. I'll admit a little sadness for no desserts, but I know it is for the best.

I grew impatient with Amazon since they still haven't shipped mine, so I went out and bought a copy at Powells tonight. I am going to let my omni mom pick some things to make while she is here visiting this weekend. Then I can send her home with the book (or if she doesn't want it I will bring it to the next PDX meetup to giveaway since I still have my copy coming from Amazon). Hooray!

I am currently munching on a bowl of salad covered in the balsamic vinaigrette. Soooo good.

Also, a word to the wise. You know when Isa says to use store bought bread crumbs and precooked lentils in the Chipotle-Lentil Burgers? Yeah, she's not joking. We didn't have any normal bread crumbs so we put panko in and while these were intensely delicious, they were also suuuuuper squishy and just not quite right.


yeah, you definitely have to use store bought fine ground crumbs! those burgers are SO GOOD!

I bought this yesterday- thanks Borders coupons! Everything looks great but I am dying for the pad thai and Vietnamese salads. Those are both getting made first.

No kidding. I ate FOUR of them (sans buns, because I don't want to waste my WW points on fluffy bread). And a big bowl of broccoli. And then I lolled about the couch feeling fat and happy and yet not having really overindulged at all.

This book is magical and I love it more with every recipe I make.

This week we're making:
An epic feast of Shaved Brussels, Silky Chickpea Gravy, Caulipots, and Basic Baked Tofu
Red wine & kalamata tempeh on a bed of whole wheat couscous with kale or chard on the side
Caesar Chavez dressing on a quinoa-kale-black bean bowl
Buffalo tempeh with collards and sweet potatoes
Jalapeno-cilantro hummus with whole wheat crackers and a huge bowl of raw vegetables
Potpie stew! Probably with brown rice

I've been seriously needing to make the lettuce wraps, but found my mirin was expired by about a year. I couldn't find any mirin at the international market, but I grabbed some regular rice cooking wine (I got the reddish one, there was also white) would that work, maybe with some sugar thrown in?

I have made this about 1 million times and I haven't gotten tired of it yet. Get an extra block of tofu, save the marinade and make it twice. Use the extra for sandwiches and on salads and in sushi and straight out of the fridge in the middle of the night.

I made the black eyed peas & greens tonight. I had some slow-cooked black eyed peas in the freezer from a few months ago, and I used kale instead of collards because I'm not a real southerner.

I realized 5 minutes before it was done that I should've been making cornbread to go with it, but I was too hungry to wait at that point. So if you make this, DON'T FORGET TO MAKE CORNBREAD.

Oh yeah, it was reeeeeeal good.

I used to think you needed cornbread with black eyed peas and greens, until I made that recipe along with the mashed sweet potatoes and apples. Cover the peas and greens in hot sauce and take a bite of those with the sweet potatoes together on the fork - oh my gosh, you will never go back. I want some right now.

I made the curried scrambled tofu with arugula tonight. It was nice! It made me realize how light I go on the curry when I normally make things. I am dying to make the Goddess Nicoise next.

Cooooool, I was hoping I could reuse the marinade! I made it the other day and didn't save the marinade and instantly felt like a dummy.

bekki, I think the best thing to sub mirin with is some kind of booze. A little bit of white wine, or sake, or cooking sherry. I think in a pinch you could probably do a light vinegar (white vinegar or rice maybe) with a pinch of sugar. It won't come out exactly the same, but will still be edible!

+1 to the curried scrambled tofu love. We had that last weekend and it was tasty.

Since I'm still sick and we're all tired, tonight we used our random meal (we only plan out 6 dinners a week) and tossed together the Easy Breezy Cheezy Sauce and put it on brown rice pasta, cauliflower, broccoli, and kale. It was delicious. It's as good as my old go-to recipe for cheezy sauce, but uh, without the 1/4c of oil

I was just thinking about the Tortilla soup today, it is sooo good. I highly recommend it. Also Arabian lentil and rice soup.

I made the roasted cauliflower with herbs and bread crumbs last night. I had it with lasagna and it was so good!! The perfect side dish for an italian meal.

ha it was the first thing I made yesterday, saved the marinade, and bought more tofu this morning. I sat at Wegmans for like 45 minutes meal planning out of this book and am so excited for the recipes I'll be making thi week. I even brought it around with me yesterday to have show n tell with my buds. Everything looks soooo good!

Just got this yesterday and I want to try just about everything (except the one or two things that have an important ingredient I don't like - beets, I'm looking at you)!

We're having the sushi salad, whatever it's actually called, for dinner tonight, partly because I'm craving sushi as usual (and am too lazy to do any rolling) and partly because my kids like the rice and fillings in sushi but not the nori wrappers. I'm thinking about tempeh helper tomorrow with some form of GF pasta since I'm trying for the trillionth time to go easy on the wheat for a while.
