More recent meals. We seem to be eating really well lately, with new recipes that are a hit and old favourites that turn out well, so I am collecting a backlog of photos. So I'll just put them up here without too much word-age from me...
Falafels (made from a just-add-water packet) with avocado. Bulgur salad with lemon juice, raw corn, loads of parsley, cucumber and green capsicum. And sesame-soy green beans and asparagus.
Mexican lasanga (aka "deconstructed enchiladas")--a mexican-ish sweet potato and bean mixture layered between tortillas and baked. Smashed potatoes, which didn't work out perfectly but were still yummy, method stolen from BrisVegan. Roasted garlicky green beans. And avocado-coriander salsa.
Twice baked potatoes. The filling is blended up potato and chickpeas with roasted nori, sauteed onion and spinach. Roasted garlicky green beans with cherry tomatoes. And in the back a salad of leafy lettuce, avocado, and raw corn. You can also see Andy impatiently stabbing away at a cherry tomato as I take my photo.
From La Dolce Vegan, 'Stuffed Cabbage Rolls'. I mostly followed this recipe, but subbed seitan for the mushrooms and sunflower seeds for the walnuts. Also, I doubled the recipe because Andy and I have huge appetites. These were really freaking good. The cumin-orange glazed sweet potatoes we served them with were only okay. Look at the steam!
During a seitan-making extravaganza, Andy wiped his hands on his bum, leaving floury fingerprints all over his boardies that I thought were cute...
For dessert one night I whipped up a half-recipe of Vegetation's mother-in-law's self-saucing choc pudding. This was the perfect amount for the two of us and the saucy chocolately goodness was the perfect end to a meal.
While we keep warm with oven food, Nacho keeps warm by napping next to the fishtank light. This sleep-spot has an added bonus--no need to go anywhere if she gets thirsty.
