I wanted to take a bunch of pics with my phone but it ran out of space so I couldn't take more than two photos. I need to free up some space! I ended up making an Instagram story with it and screenshot some pics. This first pic is frying up the green jackfruit in oil after being covered in BBQ rub.
Excuse the blurry screenshots.

We went to our annual Christmas Eve dinner at our friends and we had this curried lentil soup as a first course. It was delicious and full of flavor: coconut milk, ginger and spices and a little kick from red pepper.

Taking this pretty red and green salad to the family gathering today. Happy Christmas and Merry Holidays!
Recipe: (double if you like)
1 bunch kale torn into small pieces
Cut the following into small pieces: Carrots, Red onion, Red bell pepper.
Put all into a big bowl and add 1Tb olive oil and a squeeze or two of lemon juice. Massage kale and veggies with your hands. This will soften the kale leaves. Add Dried cranberries and Toasted nuts (walnuts or pecans are good). Then toss with dressing. Refrigerate an hour or more.
1/3 cup tahini
1/2 lemon, juiced (or more to taste)
2-3 tablespoons water
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp dried dill
pinch of cayenne
fresh chopped chives
salt and pepper
Whisk all ingredients until smooth. Add more water if too thick.

Got a chance to cook today. I wanted to make something that would be quick and would make a lot. I chose a recipe from Urban Vegan cookbook. It's the cashew curry casserole except I made some changes. I used coconut milk instead of rice milk and peanut butter instead of cashew. I also added soy sauce, lime juice and a bit of sugar, maybe a half teaspoon?

I had a bunch if bananas that were very spotty so I decided to make cake. But the question was, which one? I was bored of my go-to banana cake do I opened up My Sweet Vegan and picked out the Banana Foster cake recipe. This one is rich with margarine instead of oil, both white and brown sugar and lots of bananas, five I think. The only thing I didn't have was rum so I left it out. And I also didn't top it with caramelized bananas because laziness. So it's just a banana cake minus the foster.

1. Drain 1 can of young green jackfruit. (Unripe jackfruit) Rinse with water.
2. Put into bowl and dust liberally with a dry BBQ rub. I made my own using a recipe I saw online.
3. Heat oil in a pan and brown the jackfruit in oil. Once it's browned and softens up you can start shredding it with a fork.
4. On medium heat, add about 1/2 cup BBQ sauce and hot sauce of choice as much as you prefer.
5. Keep cooking and stirring until BBQ sauce coats all pieces mixture dries up a bit, if it's too wet/watery, keep cooking.
6. Serve on toasted buns with coleslaw of choice.

I cooked a lot but was so busy that I didn't get many shots of food. This is Trader Joes Breaded Turkeyless Roast. It was huge, so different from last year's at Christmas. I think it's from a different food manufacturer but who cares, it was delicious! Great texture and flavor.
