PPK test kitchen Black Bean Burger with all the fixings I like - mashed avocado, sliced tomato, hot sauce, lettuce and a bit of Vegenaise. Served with chilled clementine segments and PPK test kitchen blue flannel hash. The chickpea cutlets have some serious competition. These are SO easy to make.
Blue Flannel Hash (blue and purple potatoes and tempeh and more)
On Sunday I made some another pot of the Test Kitchen Roasted Garlic, Tomato and White Bean soup, and accidetally doubled the rice - I was pretty bummed about eating mushy leftovers after our first two bowls, but then Thomas gave me the idea to stuff peppers with them, so I did. I also added sauteed Italian style tempeh (soy sauce, garlic, Italian herbs, lemon juice, olive oil).
These organic green peppers are stuffed with the tomato soup mixture and topped with whole wheat breadcrumbs and nutritional yeast. On the side is a slice of organic french baguette from New Seasons with Chipotle Yumm spread (Thomas's LOVE), and a small salad with fresh lemon juice. Not the prettiest meal, but it used leftovers in a new way, and worked.
Extreme stuffed pepper filling close up!
I finally made myself buy a block of frozen multigrain tempeh from People's Coop. Quite a deal for under 10 bucks. Much nicer than buying a pack for about 2 dollars and using it all at once.
Knowing I have tempeh in the freezer whenever I want is very comforting. We're currently in a tempeh-loving phase anyway. Plus, I can finally remember to make this from LA Kitchen.
I love making my own pizza dough. This pizza is from last week, and is half whole wheat with garlic and herbs, and on top is a homemade red wine marinara with spinach, tofutti mozzerella, mushrooms and purple broccoli. I picked up the tofutti on a whim when it was on sale, recalling liking it much more than I do, but it did the trick.
Next up - Scratch my mention of minestrone. We had lunch at the No Fish Go Fish cart (mm chickpea spinach and squash soup) and Thomas had a bowl of it, and we're not doing double duty. Maybe beans and greens.
