Here's a Giant Salad that I had for dinner a couple of nights ago... so many goodies - raw beets, carrots, kidney beans, red cabbage, tomatoes, celery, walnuts, fresh basil, tofu ricotta, hemp seeds, and lettuce! I love the tofu ricotta in the salad so much... especially after I take the picture and get to mix it all together.
Last night my cutie nephew CW spent the night. I had a hard time fixing a dinner that he liked (sigh!)... but I hit a homerun with breakfast - pancakes!! I usually make more "hippy-style" pancakes, but CW isn't used to hippie food at all (thus the dinner problem)... so for the pancakes I just used the recipe for "basic pancakes" from the Joy Of Cooking. I used half whole wheat pastry flour, and used egg replacer instead of eggs. They were fluffy and amazing!
Tonight I made a delicious pot of veggie-licious chili: spicy and full of veggies. I just basically made it up... and I was very pleased with the results. It's got onions, garlic, chopped carrots, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, 1 big can of diced tomatoes, 2 cans of "chili beans," and loads of cardamom, chili powder, and cayenne. Plus some cilantro... mmmm!
