Today's meal is Lebanese Maghmour that I love so much. It's from the cookbook Tables of Lebanon. I adapted the recipe a bit by using a 16 oz can of tomato sauce instead of 1/2 cup tomato sauce and water. I like saucy! Henri loves this on top of fluffy couscous.
This large juice was part of my dinner last night an hour after a bowl of cucumber salad with tahini miso dressing. It has carrot, Apple, orange, lemon, ginger, cucumber, kale. So good. Henri drank the last 1/4 cup.

My second time making the moussaka from Veganomicon. I used zucchini, and potato for the sliced vegetables and in the sauce, I used red and green bell pepper, celery, red and yellow onion, mushrooms AND I revamped the lentil Bolognese I made the other day! Threw it in here along with another can of tomato sauce and seasoned with oregano and cinnamon like in the book. The cream is made from 70% cashew and 30% tofu. Came out delicious and so flavorful!

Still going strong with Lauren Toyota's book Vegan Comfort Classics. This morning I made this terrific egg sandwich using tofu. It's the first time making a tofu batter that fried up successfully.

Had a salad for dinner tonight and the dressing I whipped up was so good.
I don't measure so the spices were probably around 1 tsp each. The ACV and Braggs was about 1 tsp each as well. Only use a tiny bit of agave like 1/2 tsp. I would normally use raw sunflower seeds but all I had were roasted, unsalted which worked out fine. As for the water, I say about 2-4 TB? It was mostly to help it blend easier as well as cut some of the acidity from the lemon.

Happy New Year all! Today I made epic nachos using the nacho cheese sauce and sour cream from Vegan Comfort Classics by Lauren Toyota. This book is amazing. Get it!
On the nachos there are chili beans, soy crumbles that I cooked with taco seasoning, avocado, tomatoes, olives, jalapeños. It was so good. The best cheese sauce I've had so far!
