In an effort to keep posting things, as well as to clear out a folder of food photos from a while ago, I present you with a random mish-mash of meals with minimal wordage from me.
favourite fritters, we attempted a giant, frittata-like cake. A base of corn, spring onions and tofetta was topped with a spinach-laden batter and baked before being flipped over to serve. Kind of like a corn upside-down cake. This didn't work as well as we had hoped -- the batter was too thick to run down into the veggies -- but it was still yummy.
Smashed potatoes (boiled whole, then smashed and baked) with some kind of fried rice. I have a vague memory that this is Thai-Style Pineapple Fried Rice from The Tropical Vegan, made with a fresh, beautiful pineapple. This reminded me of my trip to Thailand and we both loved it.
This is our variation on "Potato, Leek and Sea Vegetable Soup" from Vegan. We didn't have a leek, so it's potato, onion and sea vegetable. Also, we swapped Atlantic sea weed for a combination of nori and wakame, because that's what we had. This was absolutely amazing. Something in it combined to create this fantastically morish soup that we both thought was the bomb diggity. Andy loved it, and he usually hates soup.
Upon finding bean sprouts and noodles reduced to clear, and capsicums and snow peas on special, we obviously had to make som Pad Thai. We love "Brooklyn Pad Thai" from Vegan with a Vengeance with double the sauce and the addition of tomatoes (Vegan Planet style).
I shall return with more sporadic and disjointed posts soon...
