Field Roast sausage and veggies

This was delicious. I love broiling vegetables and decided to add Field Roast apple sage sausage to the skewers. I brushed on a balsamic/soy sauce/olive oil/garlic marinade. So flavorful! It was good on rice. I imagine it would be great on a roll or in a pita.

I prepped cheese sauce and cashew sour cream from the Hot For Food cookbook yesterday to make these delicious nachos today. It also has refried beans, black beans, fresh pico de Gallo, guacamole and jalapeños.

I forgot to post this yummy potato leek and white bean soup that I made from the Vegan Goodness cookbook. I really love this book so far. It’s got basic stuff in it and it’s just the kind of food I want to cook.

Peanut noodles.

I made this easy peanut sauce noodle recipe from the Fix It And Forget It Vegetarian cookbook. I love cookbooks like these. The noodles were yummy. I recommend adding about a Tablespoon of agave syrup and half a squeezed lime to the sauce.

Another Buddha bowl: madras chickpea curry with quinoa, chickpea pasta salad (still not into the texture), steamed broccoli and roasted sweet potato and tahini sauce.

Perfect potato wedges!

These were so perfect! I used a recipe from The Viet Vegan blog. I believe she called them fluffy potato wedges, which they certainly were. My boy gobbled up a ton of them.

Noodle Stir fry

I made the noodles stir fry from Madeleine Olivia’s blog. I used veggies that I already had and followed the directions as written. It was pretty easy. Mine required more than a splas of water to cook/steam the noodles. I think my nests of noodles were bigger.

Red lentil coconut curry

I made a very easy red lentil curry which has coconut milk for a different flavor. Normally Indian style curries would not have coconut milk in it (that would be Thai curry). But it was delicious.
Recipe below. I based it loosely off of one Of Madeleine Olivia’s curries on YouTube.

2 Tb Oil
3 cloves garlic minced 
Thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled and minced
1 small onion chopped
1 tsp garam masala
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp chili powder (the Indian kind, not the southwest kind)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup red lentils
1 cup coconut milk
1 can diced tomatoes 
1 zucchini chopped
2 cups chopped spinach 
1/2 lime
Salt, pepper and soy sauce or tamari to taste

Heat oil in a pot and sauté the garlic, ginger and onions until softened. Add the spices, stir them around a bit then add a splash of water to loosen. Stir in the lentils, coconut milk, tomatoes and enough water to cover the lentils. Add the zucchini and bring to a boil. Then lower to simmer and cover for 45 minutes or until lentils have softened. At the end add spinach, lime juice and seasonings. I personally like adding about a tablespoon of soy sauce to my curries! Stir until spinach is wilted. Serve with rice.
