I've been making a lot of other peoples recipes lately. I started to get some what of a complex about it but realized that when I was a meat eater making my own recipes I really knew my ingredients. I'd been cooking with them for so many years I knew what went well together, what seasonings worked and so on. Now, as a plant strong happy eater I don't know my ingredients as well. Some I've never met before and really need to take out for a drink and get to know them. So, I'm learning all over again. I will continue to slowly work on the recipes I feel I can master as I learn from cooking others. When I really know my ingredients I know I will truly blossom!
Saturday was supposed to be chili but we had quite the day at the Air Show so there was no time to get it done. So, I moved chili to Sunday. Cornbread and of course rice. I grew up eating my chili on rice, I always make it to go with.
Cosmic cashew kale and chickpeas with confetti quinoa. I found this recipe from a blogger I follow, Susan with Fat Free Vegan. http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2011/05/cosmic-cashew-kale-and-chickpeas-with-confetti-quinoa.html
Salad Tuesday night. Salad really does some easier when we go to get our CSA loot.
Burritos with rice and black beans. Corn and green beans on the side.
Black bean burgers and veggies we get from the CSA. All the fixin's!
Left overs. No Cook Friday Night!!
Spaghetti squash Mexicana with tropical Avocado salsa fresca. This one is out of the best named cookbook, Veganomincon.
