I want to make the chili verde con papas again but apparently there are no tomatillos to be had in my town so I bought some tomatillo salsa instead. The recipe calls for 1 lb tomatillos so if you were me would you 1 lb of the salsa? I will be leaving out the jalepenos the recipe calls for since the salsa (although mild) does have some heat.

Made the Arabian Lentil and rice soup today, it is amazingly nice, I love the lemoniness (that's not a word but you know). Love it. And so little calories for so much fillingness.

So I made the chili con Papas - I subbed a whole jar of tomatillo salsa for the tomatillos, jalepenos, and garlic. It came out great! Had it with the cornbread which was also very moist and tasty.

I also spent the whole evening making the various parts and pieces for the Sanctuary Salad. I have made everything before, but not all at once - took quite awhile but I am excited for lunch tomorrow!

Mostly made the hottie black-eyed peas and greens - I accidentally started making the garlicky kale and mushrooms first before realizing my error so my beans and greens also had triple the garlic and mushrooms, but it was delicious!

Page turning problem? That has happened to me before.

I made buffalo tempeh and cool slaw last night for the adults. 40 clove broccoli and plain pasta for the toddler. We were all happy. I had made the tempeh before and didn't like it. I think I had the wrong kind of sauce. Everyone seems to rave about that tempeh so I tried it again. I'm glad I did! The serving size is small, though. I had to eat two servings. Next time I want to try it with Mac and trees.

I tested this book so made a lot of recipes from it then, but I decided to make a couple of recipes from it I haven't tried yet. It really helps that this book has healthy stuff that's simple to prepare, because I've been really busy lately.

Anyhoo, making the Moroccan Chickpeas and Zucchini (with couscous) to use up some leftover mint I have from a tabbouleh last week and if I can get tomatillos, I'll make the chile verde con Papas.

Also, the Lotsa Veggies Lentil soup, which I made as a tester and really enjoy. Yum!

Just found this book in my local library. I honestly have no idea where to start! I've had a skim through (trying to find the cheapest recipes :p) and it all seems rather nice.

vixki: You're gonna love it. The recipes are amazingly cheap too as most of the recipes don't involve any 'special' ingredients and use wholefoods. I especially love all the recipes in the bean chapter. I think I've made them all now!
Have fun!

I'm making the buffalo tempeh and cool slaw for dinner tonight, but am especially pumped to eat them in a wrap, as suggested in the sandwich appendix! Also making two new ones: moroccan zucchini and chickpeas and curried chickpeas and greens (probably not the actual titles...). I'm not too too keen on chickpeas, but they're cheaper than other proteins and I'd already splurged on the tempeh. Pretty excited about both, actually, because it's been chilly here this week and they seem nice and warming.

The buffalo tempeh and cool slaw in a wrap is awesome. Now I want it, even though I already have dinner in the oven.

I have been trying to make recipes I've not made out of this book as I tend to stick to my favourites all the time.
So in the last few weeks I've made
Green beans with thai basil
Red thai tofu
Chilli-lime rubbed tofu
Classic black bean & veggie chili
All delicious!

I've got Lentil & Eggplant Chili Mole simmering away, and I was going to make the corn & scallion corn bread with some polenta, then remembered I'd bought blue corn meal to try a recipe for blue corn empanadas, I'm trying the corn bread with that.

Just made the onion rings for the first time this weekend. So good!

First batch we followed the recipe exactly. Second batch I used Panko bread crumbs and added 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp cayenne to the dry mix and they were amazing!

I don't know why I still haven't made those onion rings!! Maybe tomorrow is the day!

I made the tandoori baked tofu and curried cabbage and peas for dinner tonight. Both good and easy and I'm looking forward to eating the leftover tofu on a bagel tomorrow :)

oooh, good ideas! I still haven't made these either, though I really want to.

Also, I finally made the Nicoise Salad: AMAZING. Loved it soooo much.

I forgot how much I love it! I made it back when the book was being tested and of course loved it then and made it again for the first time since testing this weekend. I'm something of a Nicose salad conessieur (sp?) as it was always my fave salad as an omni so finding a vegan version was very important to me and I love Isa's version! So far, I've made it only with the goddess dressing but since I'm reminded how much I love it now, I'll try it with the alternative balsamic vinagrette suggestion next time I make it. Also, I up the potatoes to 1 lb because 1/2 lb is not enough for me! It's still fine with the dressing to cover enough, even with the extra taters. If you run short on dressing you can also water it down a bit as it's full of flava and thick. Yum!

My favorite is the Caesar Chavez.

It's kinda a hard call...there are many really good ones. For bowls, I love the peanut one. And the basic balsamic is also excellent.

Caesar Chavez, Green Goddess, and Sanctuary are my top 3, in that order.

I'm trying to make recipes I haven't done before, so yesterday I made the Tamarind BBQ Tempeh (but I used tofu as I'm not too fond of tempeh). It was delicicious! I kept sneaking into the fridge to eat the marinade with a spoon.

The romesco red pepper one. Tastes like Annie's only cheaper and tastier.

Sundried tomato and walnut is good too.

I am currently eating leftovers of Caribbean black eyed pea & plantain curry - delicious! THough I think I would double the beans and maybe reduce the plantains and/or add the sweet potato Isa suggests as an option.

In a few minutes I will be making everyday quinoa chickpea salad to take to work for lunch this week.
