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.
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.
