We’ll start out with the “ugly duckling” food first, and get that out of the way! These are Ethiopian yellow split peas; I prepared them as I do misir watt, simply parboiling the split peas first.
Though I know you can’t tell from the hideous photo (sorry!), this is some apple cinnamon hot cereal from Bob’s Red Mill with a dollop of honey added.
A nighttime snack for me and Matt one weeknight: roasted potatoes with garlic-cumin aioli.
Getting a little prettier! This Chocolate Crumb Cake is out of Kris Holecheck’s Have Your Cake and Vegan Too.
Matt often takes cell-phone pictures of his food when he’s on business trips and proudly sends them to me for approval, hehe. Here’s a hummus platter and soy latte he got in an airport…
…and here’s a vegan carrot-ginger muffin from the same trip.
Homemade hummus! Always good.
I made a batch of raw Classic Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (cookbook recipe!) and served myself a generous portion one night over a lightly sautéed apple with cinnamon.
I still had one scoop left, so the next morning, I made myself a treat—a “rawffogato”! I topped my usual coffee (with almond milk) with a small scoop of the ice cream and enjoyed the hot-and-cold combo.
I met blog reader Jess (of Midwest Vegan) at Whole Foods for coffee and kombucha one afternoon. She only lives a little bit north of KC, so it’s about time we met!
Matt ate the veggie quesadilla with rice and black beans.
I had a cup of their dal (lentil soup)…
…followed by the Cosmic Stir: asparagus, broccoli, bell peppers, cauliflower, onions, carrots, squash, snow peas, cabbage, ginger, and tofu in a mild soy glaze, served with basmati rice.
Yes, we still had room for dessert! We got my favorite: the Sweet Awareness, hold the whipped cream. Peanut butter, banana, strawberries, tahini, and honey stuffed in naan bread.
Wow, I think I’m actually caught up on leftovers now! Coming up soon, I’ll share with you a couple of fun recent events, a review or two, and a truly droolworthy RAW strawberry-banana cream cake. Stay tuned!
