Thomas is coming back to life in the kitchen! Below is his dinner of spanish rice and grilled vegan ham (tube). Perfect grill marks! The ham tube is just too fleshy for me, but I still give it's flavor credit.
Resting and not going to the store soup: Tomato, Vegetable, Red Wine & Chickpea soup with veggie and kamut noodles. Plus, the weather has cooled down and I'm going to pretend it's becoming fall...ahh
Another clean out the cabinets and fridge soup: Carrot and Roasted Red Pepper Bisque.
It's a variation on the VWAV recipe, with red curry.
Low and behold, there's tempeh in the freezer!
I defrosted some overnight, and baked it in a marinade of agave, liquid smoke, mustard, tamari, ginger, garlic and water. Probably more that I'm forgetting..
We had some with breakfast, and then I encrusted/baked the rest in ground dry roasted almonds, herbs and nutritional yeast. It's served with melty Follow your heart mozzerella and garlic roasted romanesco, broccoli and asparagus.
A triangle of baked tempeh, fresh orange, lowfat lemon cornmeal muffin , and a rosemary & cayenne roast of red potatoes yams.
Leftover kamut and veggie pasta (free at VegFest), dished up esme's style. Mmmmmiso.
I finally tried the chocolate chip cookies from Vive Le Vegan! I must say, whoa, these are the chewiest cookies I have EVER made. I cut the fat with some applesauce, and added dried blueberries, chopped almonds, almond extract and coffee grounds.
Speaking of Voo Doo Donuts....
We picked these up a couple days *before* the Seattle trip. Chic-o-stick topping! Sprinkles! Sugar rush!
