Can't wait to make it again.

I've been busy this week, so only cooked once so far for 2012. :/
Had MorningStar veggie steak strips sandwich & "beef" ajoius (sp?) to dip it in.
Tip: You can purchase for a great price "beef" & "chicken" broth powder from http://www.frontiercoop.com/.

Really like this salad I just invented: coleslaw mix (white and red cabbage with carrots) with veganaise (original blue), mixed with a lot of organic spring mix + tempeth. Takes a couple of minutes to put together and is very satisfying and filling!

Rustic Potato Leek Soup! It was so delicious after my long run in the cold.

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil*
1 cup chopped yellow onion
3 large leeks, white and pale green parts, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons salt
3 medium red potatoes, chopped
1 bay leaf
4 cups vegetable broth*
2 cups rice milk*
1 tablespoon chopped dill
Salt and pepper to taste


Heat oil over medium heat in a large soup pot. Add onions, leeks, garlic and salt and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until translucent and softened. Add potatoes, bay leaf, and broth and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, cover, and cook until potatoes are tender, about 35 minutes. Add rice milk and dill and simmer, uncovered, for 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Discard bay leaf and serve.

The yummiest thing I've had so far this year is Braised Sweet Potato and Pecan Pasta from a cookbook that I received for Christmas, Big Vegan. It was delicious!

Best Vegan Meal so far? One of my kickass salads

Sliced up Dinosaur Kale
Cut up: Broccoli
Cauliflower
Carrots
Radishes
mushrooms
avocado
pumpkin seeds
tomatoes
sprinkle of nutritional yeast
drizzle balsamic vinegar on for dressing

Boom! Delicious and nutritious. Much more tasty than any salad I'd get in a restaurant.

Best Vegan Meal this year...
Yesterday I had a sandwich especially made for me on gluten-free bread with lettuce, tomato, avocado, sprouts, and tempeh (YUMMMY)...with sugar-snap peas and hummus. It was light, tasty, and filling! I know it is not outlandish or inspiring to most but it sure hit the spot for me! Sometimes simplicity tastes so gooood!

Homemade pizza!

Have cooked a lot more than normal this week, which means we haven't had anything too interesting. ;-)

Don't forget to be awesome.
