Yum! Everyone eats so well. I'm making gallo pinto soon too, Love Child. I pressure-cookered some small red beans recently and made a point of reserving some of their cooking liquid for gallo pinto.


I loved gallo pinto, will definetely try it with red beans! This time she used black ones, which she tells me is Costa Rican style, while they use red beans in Nicaragua.

I made a crockpot of seitan yesterday. Planning to coat it with an Egyptian spice mix called nile dukka (hazelnuts, sesame, cinnamon, etc) & have it with some moroccan spiced carrots.

Also doing take-two of baby protein muffins, some colby uncheeze and creole stuffed peppers.

Made an enormous omelet (recipe from VB), filled with vegan chee, Smart Ground- Mexican style, onions, and peppers. It broke up when I tried to flip it the first time, so it wasn't pretty, but it still tasted awesome.

Mental note: Don't make the omelet so big it's impossible to flip! oh, and respray the pan with you flip it the first time. Stupid, silly mistakes.

Post Script: Breakfast for dinner RULES!!

I'm making a variation of this with white beans, romanesco, kale and roasted butternut: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/dave ... index.html

I'm hoping I can find the garlic bread I know is in my freezer somewhere...

I roasted some acorn squash stuffed with kale and chickpeas. My filling turned out really good, but the squash sucks! I think maybe I just got old ones or something? They are stringy and flavorless, and they never really got soft, even after cooking for ages. Anyway, it's very sad because I planned for those to be dinner for 4 days this week. Now I'm probably just going to scoop out the filling.

I also underbaked a pizza yesterday. This is not my week for cooking.

I wasn't home to do my big cooking on Sunday. :( But I have yellow split peas soaking for pot pie stew, and I need to make upside down lentil shepherd's pie before my zucchini goes bad. I hope I have time.

I did make a big crockpot full of pumpkin steel cut oatmeal last night. Mr. Spork is really excited about it. I still have baked tofu for breakfasts and washed salad left over from last week, so I won't starve or succumb to TOO much convenience food, but I'm not as set for the week as I'd like to be.

I'm finally cooking regularly again after moving back to CA! I'm so thrilled to be back in the kitchen. This week we're under rent is due austerity measures, but I made a big batch of zhug (aka my favorite hot sauce from Israeli falafel places in NYC) and a giant pot of brown rice and red lentil stew, so we're eating really well, if repetitively, for like $10 :)

Love this thread! So much cooking inspiration!

My crazy work hours don't leave much time for cooking and I usually get home after midnight. Every free cooking moment has to yield good results.

For now:
Joanna’s Autumn Vegetables and Tofu Roast
Broccoli Bistro Chowder from Appetite for Reduction
Julie’s Smoky Pumpkin Hummus

For the freezer and quick snacks later:
Vcon’s Black Bean Burgers – made into mini-burgers
VwaV’s The Best Pumpkin Muffins (they definitely are !)
Steamed Ginger-Molasses-Fig Pudding (frozen in individual servings)

It's Saturday afternoon and I just finished my grocery list. I'm trying to get my asparagus to the grocery store but I've been conveniently finding other things to do. I'll probably start cooking this evening.

This week I'll be making:
Beefy Seitan for Pho
Faux Pho Bo
Cucumber Wasabi Bun w/ Crushed Peanuts
Spring Rolls with vermicell filling (leftover bun) and avocado
Stuffed Green Peppers (brown rice & lentil filling)
Falafel from AFR

and some random snacks and staples:
Banana Walnut Muffins
Granola
Kale Chips
Roasted Chickpeas
Kimchi
Rice Milk

Next weekend I'm thinking about making black bean soup and lentil burgers.

I will be eating leftover pumpkin baked ziti for a couple of days, then I'll make the Korean fried rice/tofu scramble/broccoli dish from World Vegan Feast (I can't remember the exact name of the recipe right now). Friday is my birthday so then I'm thinking of making something fancy, maybe the moussaka with pine nut cream from Veganomicon.

I made this casserole-y thing with bulgur wheat, barley, frozen veggies, fresh mushrooms, a sweet potato, and mince. All things I just had and could use. Baked it. It's pretty good. I have heaps of it.

Black Bean and Chipotle Stew from VwaV to freeze for quick meals--I haven't made this particular stew since I first got the book back in 2006. I remember it being hearty and delish and I love anything chipotle.

I should also make Homestyle Potato rolls to go with above stew. Those potato rolls go with everything, as far as I'm concerned!

Swiss Seitan which is a recipe I clipped from a newspaper. It's one of those quick weeknight recipes. I have a loaf of Viva Vegan's red seitan thawing in the fridge to use in this and I have to make more because I need more seitan.

So, making a fresh batch of red seitan from Viva Vegan to use in the Swiss Seitan recipe above.

I'll probably make some sort of cookie or desserty thing as yet undecided. Probably peanut butter cookies as I haven't had them in a while and have been craving lately (gigantoids from VwaV). Or Peter Berley's chocolate chip brownies in my brownie edges pan because I haven't had them in an age...
