Pot pie.

Yummy! I needed to use up a frozen pie crust, a box of puff pastry shells and a bunch of veg. I made this pot pie and it turned out delicious! When I was cooking the filling, the gravy was a bit thin so I thickened it with a couple spoonfuls of Bisto Gravy granules. 👍🏼

Jambalaya with airfryer tofu

This was delicious. I seasoned the tofu with salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, soy sauce and liquid smoke before air frying. Then added to the vegetables diced tomatoes, spices, broth and rice and let it cook for 30 minutes.

Soup beans, pickled chow chow and cornbread

 I was intrigued by Appalachian cooking and made soup beans, chow chow and cornbread. I found recipes Here

Because it’s vegan - no ham hock or bacon in the beans. Instead I cooked the pinto beans in the crockpot with sautéed onions, garlic, celery, cumin, coriander, paprika, chili flakes, black pepper, liquid hickory smoke, water, olive oil.

African Curried Coconut Soup with Chickpeas

Recipe here

The Tropical Vegan Kitchen cookbook is really easy to use and filled with amazing recipes. I made the African Curried Coconut Soup with Chickpeas. It’s warming, delicious and very similar in flavors to Thai coconut soups. I added zucchini, mushrooms, poblano peppers, much more garlic, more curry powder and a tiny bit of sugar to help meld the flavors. I used tomato purée instead of diced. I also didn’t add the rice when it was cooking, instead served it with cooked jasmine rice. Definitely making again.
