Hodge Podge Lunch
Eggless Broccoli Onion Frittata w/ Long Grain Brown Basmati Rice and steamed Siracha Beets all topped with a homemade Tomato Basil Sauce.
And Miso Soup
Yes, it was a weird combo, but it was really yummy. Mmmmmm
Besides making the chocolate doughnuts I posted about earlier, I also made
Chocolate Zucchini Muffins and Granola Bars
Yep, sweets abound!
So, I tweaked (a lot) the cornbread recipe in HH
Here’s the recipe for the bread pictured above:
1 c cornmeal
.5 c corn flour
.25 c whole wheat pastry flour
.25 c whole grain rye flour
1T baking powder
.5 t salt
1 c Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (Trader Joe’s) w/1 tsp lemon juice
.25 c butternut squash puree
.25 c maple syrup
Raw sugar for the top.
Mix the dry in one bowl, mix the wet in another bowl (make sure you mix the milk and juice ahead of time and let sit for a couple of minutes). Mix it all together - but not too much, if you beat your batter too much, you’re gonna get a brick. No brick! Anyways, put in a pie dish (or anything else you want) and put in a 400degree F oven for 20 min.
The end. Yum!
Ode to the Cornbread:
I crave the cornbread, I make the cornbread, I eat the cornbread.
Vegan it is, no added fat it has, raw sugar sprinkled on half
Because sometimes sweet bread is nice.
Root Beer Float Cupcakes (a la Happy Herbivore)
First time making these and I’ll be damned: they do taste really root beer-y.
Sundried Tomato White Bean Dip w/veggies, TJ’s Woven Wheats, and TJ’s Baked Lentil Chips
Dinner from the HH meal recipes. Yum! This week’s recipes are turning out extra yummy.
Oatmeal Cookie Granola Bars
I used a couple of different recipes for oatmeal cookies, veganized them, and made a couple of substitutions and augmentations - kind of made it up as I went along. And, it worked! They are really good!
What in ‘em:
Whole Wheat Flour, Whole Rye Flour, Oats, Shredded Wheat Cereal, Raisins, Chocolate Chips, Sunflower Seeds, A Flax Egg, Raw Sugar, Cinnamon, Almond Butter, and Peanut Butter. Oh, and little baking soda.
Yep - snacks for my son.
Cooking This Weekend:
I had never made the beer bread before - it is *really* good.
