Cooking projects from the past few days . . .
First, Sunday night dinner:
Sometimes, all you want for supper is a big bowl o' whole wheat pasta with a little rehydrated TVP and jarred marinara tossed in. The simplest foods are sometimes the best.
Next, pumpkin part I:
I used Vicki's pumpkin muffin recipe, altered it a little bit, added some pecans and dried cranberries, baked it in a loaf pan, and voila! Yummy vegan pumpkin bread. Mmmmm . . . (and that's an asian pear on the side -- breakfast yesterday morning. With coffee, of course. I'm trying french vanilla Silk creamer this week -- not as awesome as the hazelnut, but still yummy.)
Last, for lunch today, a Teriyaki Lentil Burger:
This is a recipe I've been thinking about for the cookbook for ages and ages, and just now got around to testing. I was pleasantly surprised this first time round! The seasonings seem to be spot-on, although the texture is ever so slightly mushy. I'll try baking them next time, instead of pan-frying!
Oh yeah -- and that asian style cole slaw on the side? Totally made-up, totally fabulous, and totally WAY too much cole slaw for one person. If you plan on stopping by my apartment sometime this week, prepare to take cole slaw with you when you leave! I don't want to turn into a giant cabbage! (Although, that would be a convenient Halloween costume . . . !)
