For some reason I didn't realize until about noon today that this upcoming Monday is a holiday in the US, which means most businesses, including my job, are closed... YES! Free day off! I decided quickly that I'm going to take the extra time on this three day weekend and do a little cooking and baking stock-up and try out some recipes I've had on my radar for a while.
My lovely great-aunt gifted me a copy of the The Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health: More Than 200 New Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes for Delicious and Nutrient-Rich Dishes
a while back. I've found that it contains a couple pretty good sounding recipes for homemade veggie burgers that are freezable. We've been sort of hooked on MorningStar Farms and I'm hoping to find a homemade alternative. Going to start with Spinach-Tofu burgers and see how it goes.
I also am going to try another one of Camilla's awesome snack bar recipes. The Clif bars worked out so well that I can't wait to try black bean power bars too.
We've been on a big Greek-kick lately (when I say we, I mainly mean me; I cook it and Dan eats it). Earlier this week I tried some new Greek Style Veggie burgers using couscous and made my own tzatziki sauce (with a bit of inspiration from Stephanie) (more on both of these later, I hope, when I make them again), so building from that theme, I'm also going to try to tackle pita bread (Cooking Light recipe) and hummus (recipe from a friend).
Lastly, I made some bean and bell pepper fajitas last week.. those have been requested to make and encore appearance on our menu this weekend. Hope to have a full post on this awesome, quick, easy and so tasty recipe for you as well.
I'm thinking I want to make some kind of vegan baked-good... like a
cupcake.. anyone have a good recipe for a simple vegan cupcake with
frosting? We'll see if I get that far.
