I live out in western mass where asparagus is queen ("hadley grass" is what some folks call it) and I've been trying all manner of methods of preparing it recently. I tested out the jerk asparagus recipe the other night, and I have to say, that shii was tasty! the seasonings are flavorful and hot without overpowering the delicate asparagus taste. that recipe is definitely poised to become a regular part of my a-gus consumption.

pictured below: mushroom-chickpea burger with homemade guac and better than sour cream, jerk asparagus, corn cobbies, and tomatoes.

I made the Balsamic Vinaigrette because I'm planning to make Quinoa Chickpea salad tomorrow and I CAN'T SHOVE THIS LETTUCE INTO MY FACE FAST ENOUGH. I don't even like balsamic vinegar.

That looks wonderful ... colourful! I had a friend who told me once that he returned from work to find dinner prepared by his stay at home wife ... they are/were meat eaters it was - a piece of sole, boiled potatoes & cauliflower ... all white ... a plate (a white plate no less) of white ... the colours on your plate make one want to seize it and dance about ... being careful of course, not to spill any of it.

Yesterday I made the Forty Clove Chickpeas, but with cauliflower instead of broccoli. It's awesome for such an easy dish. The hardest part is just waiting for it to cook, honestly. It's great with tahini sauce on it.

That dish helped my non-cook sister go vegetarian! I posted it on her fridge and she makes it like 4 times a week. She told me she made it with Brussels Sprouts recently and acted like she was a genius for thinking of it. She is adorable. I'm trying to convince her that there are MORE recipes in AFR, but she is in that weird camp of people who can happily eat the same thing every day.

Just recently made the Curry Laksa, it was delicious! Even my tofu hating die hard carnivore of a sister polished off an entire bowl and informs me she does after all like tofu. Isa must have superpowers!

Hrrmmm. I loaned the book to somebody, about a month ago, who I reckon isn't going to make anything from it. I'm not sure whether to ask him for it back (may require an email, as I might not seem in the office for a while) or give it up to the vegan leprechauns and buy another one???

Ask how the recipes are coming along and when is he going to be serving an Isa AFR dinner for six.

I made the Mac 'n' Trees today. So quick and easy. It was my first hot meal (besides plates of chips) since last Friday and it was sooooooo good. Perfect comfort food.

Ooohhh, caulipots, have mercy! I am not going to say how many servings of these I made and ate last night. Such a brilliant platform, I caramelized some onion to put on top. Yump!

I really liked the lentil burgers. My can of lentils were an ounce less than what the recipe called for, but they came out perfect!

I finally got to try the trattoria pasta salad. I really liked it. I don't like arugula, so I subbed baby spinach. I kind of wish I had tossed the spinach with still warm pasta to wilt it a smidge, so I'll do that next time. Also, I don't like the raw onion taste too much, so I soaked my shallots in cold water for 30 minutes. That mellowed them out so they were perfect.

Lunches this week: Vietnamese Rice Noodle salad
Dinners this week: Miso Udon Stir fry

Both are so good! I actually made involuntary "yummy" noises when eating dinner.

Although, how does anyone manage to mix stuff into rice noodles? I feel like they team up and exclude the veggies.

Toss everything around as well as possible with a stir-fry spoon and a mixing spoon, but mostly just end up getting a pile of noodles and then scooping up a pile of veggies into the bowl.

This inspired me to finally make that cheezy sauce tonight since I had to use up some quinoa and veggies and DANG. Good thing I halved the recipe because... I ate all of it. Whoops. Still glad I wasn't slurping up tons of margarine though, which is what my usual made-up cheezy sauce involves.

Made pot pie stew with red lentils instead of split peas, plus added about a cup of white rice and extra broth. Yumm.

I've made that stew with red lentils too, they're a great sub. Nice idea about adding the rice! I'm still so smitten with the miso udon stir fry. I'll definitely be making that again soon too.

This week:
Lunches: Sushi Roll salad
Dinner: Smoky Tempeh & Greens Stew with brown rice, salad with Balsamic dressing

I'm doing a 30 day challenge at my Bikram studio, so staying hydrated and eating well is going a long way to feeling good in the hot room. I'm so happy to have AFR so I don't feel confined to boring salads and flavorless dinners. I sound like an infomercial...
