Do you like food?

Chickpea cutlet (again from the upcoming PPK book) with bbq sauce, garlicky chard, a nutritional yeasty/garlicky/eb twice baked potato and corn on the cob. Mushroom medallion - another test recipe. This was obviously Thomas' dish with carmelized Walla Walla onions on top. You can't really see them, but this was served with VWAV Cajun oven fries.One of our old favorites that we hadn't made in ages - bbq tofu with local red bell peppers. On the side is short grain brown rice (finally restocked that since the move) and a simple side salad. I think Consorzio recently discontinued the 'spicy' version of this sauce I adored because I can't find it anywhere, so we've been using the original one. I should get around to making my own again..Trip to Fubonn. Vegetarian chicken patties, silken tofu, firm tofu from Washington (used in the bbq tofu), lychee gummy candies, coconut essence, coconut cream and coconut milk.Yo - I've really been loving my food processor. I've used it for dough, pesto, salsa verde and a caponata type spread. Pictured above is the pesto from VWAV, made with pine nuts instead of walnuts.Pesto rolls! With pesto, earth balance, pizza dough and FYH mozzarella. These were really tasty, bizarrely almost sweet, but I used a little too much oil in the pan so some bottoms had to be forgotten. Oh well, I learned my lesson. Isa pizza from VWAV, minus the tofu ricotta, plus red peppers. Make this.PPK coffeecake with Italian prune plums. Made with Michelle for a vegan cook-a-long post - check out this group, it's really neat and something a lot of you guys might be into~

I wanted to link to Susan's Fatfree vegan blog, because it's really inspiring me to eat big lunch salads with tofu. I'm penciling in hummus and grilled veggies as well to go on top. Thank you! Plus, keep an eye out on this bagged spinach fiasco.

I'll be in PA and NY next week, for a busines conference and then a few days of vacation. Ahhh.. This time I will not upload my trip photos to Jenny's computer so I can actually share the meal experiences on the blog. I might post one more before I go.. Any suggestions, dining/travel for Philadelphia or King of Prussia?

I picked another HUGE bowl of basil today and am going to be making another few batches of pesto. So... I definitely see pesto rolls in the near future. They look so friggin good. They kind of remind me of these garlic basil rolls we used to get in Orange County that were REALLY good. I can't wait to make these. I think I'm going to make a bunch and then freeze them.

This all looks amazing Jess. I had no doubt how much you will use that food processor. I would have subbed the pine nuts as well.

Big concern: are the chickpea cutlets baked or pan-fried? (please say fan-fried!).

Leslie - they can be baked or fried - those are baked !

Oh droooool. All your pictures look so good, but I know I can't be getting hungry, because it's 2 in the morning right now. I have to rescue some basil before the cold air kills it, so I'm definitely going to steal your pesto rolls idea, that is one of the prettiest things I've seen in a while.

Kate said...

Wow the pesto rolls look so good. I love the coffee cake too, I think I have to add that to the "recipes to make in the future" list. I added you as a link on my blog if that is okay.

glad you're enjoying the new processor -- i really dig that vwav pesto recipe, i've only used walnuts --- so delicious, and i'm not even a big walnut fan -- go figure.
ps -- i just preordered isa's cupcake cookbook -- can't wait 'til oct!

Mmm,I never know where to start. I'll just say I want it all. Isn't the food processor fabulous? I adore mine, and I can't believe I used to try to make hummus and other things in my blender. Ugh.
Have a good time on you trip!

I know you posted this forever ago, but I searched for the recipe for the chickpea cutlet on the PPK website and I could not find it. I would like to try these, they look DELICIOUS! Also, the pesto rolls look a-maz-ing! Do you have a recipe for those too. Also I wanted to ask you if you know a great blueberry scone recipe? Thanks, moonmotel@gmail.com
