I was sent this book from the publisher. I was really excited to receive this book because I’m guilty of spending far too much at the grocery store. While the recipes aren’t the most inspired I’ve ever seen, the book does take you back to neglected basics, and it reminds me how cheap being vegan can be. I am such a foodie that I rarely watch my budget and that’s never a good idea
I’ve book marked a few recipes and I’m going to post about them as I cook.
I made hearty potato soup with croutons I made out of leftover bread ends. The soup was delicious but not photogenic. Next I made the stir fry pictured above, adding rice vinegar, dried ginger and sambal olek to the mix, and finished with black sesame seeds as was suggested. Wes and I both inhaled this. I honestly haven’t made stir fry in over a year.
At the end is a giant oatmeal chocolate chip cookie that I got a couple weeks ago from the vegan restaurant down the street, The Wild Cow. It was dangerously delicious and seeing the picture makes me want to go see if they have them now. But….I just remembered a FiddleCakes Groupon. Oh yeah….
I hate the way stuff posts from my phone, but I’m being lazy and I wanted to share.
More to come!
