I honestly have more meals to report, but our internet was down at home for a couple days, and it just didn't feel right not to make another post by the weekend.
For now, I'll share three meals, a big ole grocery trip and a cat.
I have some Yellowrose Recipes Lowfat Cookbook testing to report - herbed polenta - with a cherry tomato, basil and navy bean sauce I made three nights in a row (grilled and panfried) I liked it so much, but that will wait for now...
In case you missed it, check out Isa Chandra Moskowitz's recent Satya article for their final issue: "Vegan Culinary Activism in 10 Yummy Steps, where she gives a nod to Get Sconed! (don't mind the web address mistake, she knows). I'm freaking honored.
And more PPK news, brace yourself - Veganomican is set to be released October 28, 2007. I have actually tested 55 recipes myself, and that's not even half of them, for real. I have tags on some of them, but of course I forgot to do all of them. When did this post become primarily text?
Another stir fry with broccoli, tofu, cremini mushrooms, shiitakes, carrots, zucchini, cashews and sugar snap peas.
First I pan fried the drained and pressed tofu in a bit of sunflower oil and toasted sesame oil, and sprinkled it with crushed red pepper flakes. I remove it from the pan, and stir fried the vegetables and cashews with garlic, ginger, sambal olek, vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce, hoisin, tamari, toasted sesame oil, pepper, brown sugar, rice vinegar. As per veggiegirl's suggestion, I served it over quinoa~
Vegan yum yum tester - Velvetting Vegetable Soup, with navy beans
Italian influenced grilled portabella burger - with tomato/basil traditional bruschetta topping, roasted red peppers, greens, vegenaise and basil. The shroom was marinated in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, fresh basil, dried oregano and tamari.
On the side is what may have been my last local asparagus of the seasons, roasted with olive, oil, sea salt & fresh ground pepper.
A recent giganto grocery trip to Limbo in SE Portland and Trader Joe's. 50 cent organic cherry tomato pints at Limbo & again, giganto organic portabellas~
Though not local, $1.50 for a HUGE container of organic spinach, too.
Zelda says hi, by the way.
Alright, I'll be away on business for the next few days, starting tommorow morning, in Washington again (prentending to be a grown up?) - enjoy the rest of your weekend~
p.s. I finally posted the Stumptown Vegans review review for Teapot Vegetarian House review for Teapot Vegetarian House in Seattle, check it out if you're interested!
P.P.S. Webly and a couple of ours friends went blueberry, strawberry, raspberry and mulberry picking today and I am in pure sweet heaven.
