in the house sans grocery shopping.
Breakfast was simple but opens all kindsa doors in the future.
Behold! Eggless omelets:
this is my first attempt at making these crepe-like concoctions. I'd been eyeing the recipe in this book forever, but only tried it today (if you're as big a fan of nutritional yeast as I am, this book is for you! the broccoli soup recipe alone is worth the few bucks! everything is so simple but soooo yummy!).
I opted to stir in 1 tsp. of dried dill and put a little smidgen of tofutti's Better Than Sour Cream on 'em before folding 'em over and eating 'em with m'hands. two of these and an apple was really all I could put away...ok, maybe I ate three. :) I can't wait to try them out topped with veggies, various herbs, or fruits. Very easy and I always have the ingredients on hand.
Lunch was a mad whirl in the kitchen of 'what do we have left and how fast can I make it?' This was the result:
We had some leftover eggplant that had been coated with breadcrumbs, baked and then frozen. I just sauteed them in a little olive oil and piled them on a sprouted roll with some marinara.
As a side, I chopped up the last tomato, cuke, avacado, and a little red onion, then tossed with a splash or two of balsamic vinegar and oregano.
Actually, I threw that together first so it could sit while I assembled my sandwhich. It hit the spot, and I was done in a flash.
The tomato goodness lingered on my palate thru to dinner. I knew I wanted to use up some tempeh and some carrots....hmmmmm......
VwaV's sausage-like tempeh crumbles recipe always cooks up in a jiffy.
add that to the remaining marinara and a 16 oz. can of Muir Glen's Fire Rosted Tomatoes and a little organic tomato paste, simmer.....
and dish that up atop some organic whole wheat angel hair. Don't forget the Parma! (never forget the Parma! ;) I really need to start making my own.
Oh, those carrots? I LOVED them braised with garlic the other night so I did that (minus the leeks) and tossed them with a box of frozen spinach that I thawed and heated, like so
This was actually soooo good!
It was so satisfying that I'm not even craving anything sweet right now...but if I do? I know there's a couple pcs of dried mango left over that will squelch that in a hurry. :)
Not the most inventive of meals, but certainly delicious and now I can enjoy my grocery shopping excursion tomorrow (finally) knowing nothing's going to waste in this vegan household!
