Blue Bowl

I seem to have an incredible backlog of photos on my computer, so today I present you a mix of dishes which have all been served up in my favourite blue ceramic bowl.  We've only got one, so it's a bit dicey when Andy is home, trying to decide who gets it.  But we've recently acquired a nice big white bowl which holds about twice as much food as a normal bowl, so that's the one Andy usually eats from now...

First up, black-eyed pea dhal.  This recipe is from Alternative Vegan and it is fantastic.  Smoky and deliciously spiced, it makes me declare my love for black-eyed peas.

Here is a seitan-ginger beer stew which is a semi-original recipe.  Served with spaetzle and more ginger beer, this is a light and zingy flavour combined with a hearty dish.  Perfect for hungry summer dinners.


Look, I'll be honest about this -- I don't even remember what it is, or when we made it.  It appears to be some kind of red lentil and chickpea dhal, but I think I see shredded coconut in there as well.  Anyways, it was probably tasty.  With brown rice, because that's how we roll.


This is a barley bowl, kind of like a rice bowl that a lot of veggie restaurants have on their menus.  Sweet potato, carrot, and green peas plus a tomato-ey sauce to tie it all together.

This reminds me of how, when I lived in the US for a year in 2007, I thought about starting a food blog called "Adventures of a Little Green Bowl", because it was my only piece of kitchenware and I ate everything from it!

I don't think I ate anything as wholesome and yummy as your dishes, though. At the first meal, my head went "Smoky - yum!", then it was "ginger beer - novelty!", and then I gave up and succumbed to guilt because I haven't had anything as healthy as your food in weeks..

Your food always looks so nice, am thinking the blue bowl may start demanding it's own dressing room if it gets any more publicity...watch out for that...x

Those meals all look so satisfying and tasty. Yay for the blue bowl.

The black eyed bean dahl looks so so good, I have some beans in the cupboard, I'm going to try something like that with them.
