What Did You Cook Lately?

I thought a thread with links to recipes that we've tried and liked might be nice.

It's not quite New Year anymore but today I cooked Black-eyed beans from this recipe at Fat Free Kitchen:

http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2008/01...eyed-peas.html



Mine was more soupy than the one pictured so I added shredded greens to it. Gonna have it later with some brown rice.

I also recently made a split-pea version of these Butternut and Lentil Patties which were really good served over a bed of shredded salad greens. They're more like veggie cutlets than burgers suitable for putting in a bun:

Did you cook up some vegan goodness recently?

I baked two loaves of cinnamon-cardamom swirl bread and strawberry-banana smear.

I just made refried beans using pinto beans using a mash-up of a these two recipes:

http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...ied-beans.html

http://thepioneerwoman.com/food-and-...refried-beans/

I put all the ingredients except oil into the slow cooker and cooked them for a few hours. Then I drained out the cooking liquid and reserved it. Heated the oil in a big pan and fried the beans up a bit before adding back in a cup of the cooking liquid and mashing with a potato masher.

They've turned out fabulous and we'll be having them later with fajitas. I will use a milder tasting oil next time as I only had EVOO in the house and it's imparted its distinctive flavour to the beans which probably isn't very appropriate in a Tex Mex context.

Next time I may try reserving the spices and onion and frying them up before adding in the cooked beans.

For which one, the bread or the smear? I got the bread recipe here, and the strawberry banana smear came from pureeing a banana in some frozen strawberries.

Thanks! I had meant the bread recipe. Definitely going to try that one soon! Pretty sure the crew in my department at work will love it!

Eggplants have been very good here!
After my -meh- curry, I got another one and made it with carrots, mushrooms, onions, peppers
in a miso broth with lots of ginger, garlic some rice vinegar and a spoon of brown sugar
That was delicious!
Then I made rice with coconut oil and it was very, very good with that!
One cup rice (I used jasmine)
simmered in 1 3/4 cup water with
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Simmered about 10-12 minutes covered

carrot hummus (chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, fresh squeezed lemon juice, steamed carrots, ginger, garlic, cumin, allspice, s/p).

After I blended it to a creamy hummus, I added it to a batch of cooked millet and threw in some steamed asparagus (cut into 1/3s). 2 hours later and I am still in a state of post hummus bliss. (oh my that is way too close to "posthumous" lol).

Yesterday, I made a lentil ratatouille which turned out really tasty.

onion
garlic cloves
water, with a corresponding amount of veggie bouillon
canned fire roasted diced tomatoes
brown lentils
carrots
potatoes
eggplant
basil
parsley
oregano
bay leaves
nutritional yeast
red wine

Tonight I made this, and for a change, I followed the recipe exactly: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-...-with-spinach/

It was very, very nice, and my sister loved it also. I think the next time I might omit the cayenne though, since the underlying flavor is so nice. I can see all kinds of applications for the sauce, which is rich and creamy - using it for a cheesy sauce over broccoli, in lasagna, perhaps even on pizza....

I think Naturebound makes something very like this with sweet potatoes, if I remember correctly.

I also made this, which was O.K., but not as good as the sweet potato mac and cheese: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-...paprika-glaze/

Last night I had to use up some green pepper so I made spaghetti with fried peppers and mushrooms, it turned out really good! It's kind of a Vegan Stoner recipe, just fry up some chopped mushrooms and peppers with vegan butter, add to cooked pasta and canned tomato sauce with whatever spices you desire and boom! Dinner in 15 minutes.

Looks good, I must get some nutritional yeast in!

I love pepper and mushroom in red sauce. I use onion and/or garlic too, lots if I can sneak it by the other 2 vegans here who aren't fans.

In my search for an alternative filling to cheese in my toasted cheese sandwiches I came up with the idea of using slices of potato alongside the tomatoes and onions.

Then I discovered this: Aloo Sandwich
Turns out that toasted potato sandwiches are a popular Indian street food.

Anyway I roughly followed this one without the curd ketchup stuff and it worked for me. For ease and speed I steamed the potato in the microwave before slicing:

Grilled Tomato, Onion & Potato Sandwich

Yep, it was pretty good! Potato isn't exactly cheese but it does make a good satisfying filler. I'm going to steam some potatoes to keep in the fridge for when I fancy a toasty in the evening - or it might even become my go-to breakfast. I think I'll spread a little Dijon mustard on the toast next time to make up for that cheesy tang.

I used to hate cauliflower before I was vegan and didn't pay it much attention after going vegan but recently tried cauliflower wings. I loved them so much I've made em 3 times his week ... Simple to make and I swear I'm addicted to a vegetable I used to hate. I want to try and make it with barbecue sause next time.

This chocolate pudding recipe is wonderful: http://hellyeahitsvegan.com/vegan-chocolate-pudding/

I use a little bit less cocoa powder and less sugar, and stir in a whole bunch of semi sweet chocolate chips right at the end. Plus, I add in amaretto as I remove it from the heat. It's really rich and lovely.

I made this today: Fajita Seasoning Mix

1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Tastes pretty good (raw anyway). I won't need to bother with the ready mixed blends anymore. I don't bother with meat subs when making fajitas, just thickly sliced peppers and onions. Sometimes mushrooms too. Then I make a quick tomato salsa with tinned chopped tomatoes, tomato ketchup, chilli sauce and finely chopped onions. We have some refried beans on the table as well as some shredded iceburg lettuce.

I make a pudding just like that. So simple and easy and yet it tastes fab!

That also has a link to vanilla pudding which is the recipe I started with. It gives the very helpful advice of not messing with the pudding before it sets! DON"T TOUCH- it won't thicken!

You can use instant pudding mixes if you heat the soymilk and wisk it in. I don't know if you can use almond, but I have a soy milk machine and sometime use instant before it cools. I use 1/2 cup less milk than the box calls for

I made a Tuscan White Bean Stew today from a bag of pre-cooked cannellini beans that have been in my fridge for a couple of days now. This recipe almost exactly matches what I cobbled together (just without the chicken broth or parmesan): http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...up-recipe.html

I got organic chili beans from Aldi and had leftover corn tortillas, peppers, and onion.
I opened a big can of chopped organic tomatoes (also Aldi) sauteed the peppers and onions, and just did layers of tomatoes and some ketchup with chopped canned jalepanos, tortillas, veggies and two cans of beans-etc, till the 9x13 casserole was full. Covered with foil and baked for 30 minutes then topped with a half bag of moz Daiya and baked for 15 minutes more
I used ketchup just to thicken the tomato juices. Really really good and quicker than the enchiladas I usually make.

I've seen that kind of layered dish called a 'Mexican Lasagne' I wonder if it would be something I could cook and then slice up once cold to take into work? I get so bored of sandwiches and salads!

Last night my mom and I made a pizza! We topped it with pineapple and olives. The flavors together were amazing! Very easy to make if you have a craving for something not super healthy.

I've never tried olives and pineapple together. But it sounds good!
I love that kind of salt / sweet combination.

I made this recipe, for which Carolt originally provided a link: http://thevedge.org/tofu-popcorn-chi...n-gluten-free/

It has a really nice flavor. My sister loved it, I loved it, and the tofu-lovin' macaw loved it!
