Week One of VeganMoFo: Eating From the Garden!
Today's seasonal meal: Hummus plate with fresh veggies. Yummy, super quick, filling, and beautiful. I always feel like I digest better when my food is beautiful.
The purple beans and the tomatoes are from our garden (and everything else is from the farmers' market). I love those beautiful dark purple green beans... aren't they incredible!? Just looking at this picture reminds me that I need to go pick them again, we've had a modest but steady crop from our 3 little bush bean plants. Also, the plants have the most gorgeous purple blossoms, pre-beans.... so they're decorative, and food-making. The best!
I usually use the recipe for "Creamy Hummus" from Vive Le Vegan, but over time I've come to play it by ear. I love how quick and easy and super nutritious hummus is... oh, and delicious too. I eat a lot of hummus, and I never get tired of it.
Both of these big plates o' hummus were created as humungous lunches for yours truly... and I think I managed to put it all away... except there may have been some cucumbers left over from that top plate!
My plan for VeganMoFo (Vegan Month of Food) is to break the time down into 4 weekly themes... stay tuned for more! To check out all the blogs participating in VeganMoFo this year, click here (over 350 blogs participating this year!!!).
