pizza perogies. omg.
ok so i eat a lot of perogies. i buy a big bag of generic brand frozen potato and onion flavour perogies (check for no cheese)
boil them with a splash of oil in the water for a couple minutes, just til they start to float to the top of the water.
meanwhile heat up a bit of oil in a frying pan. toss in some chopped onion and mushroom, and green or red bell peppers if you have them. and a veggie burger patty or some veggie ground (i use a frozen veggie burger patty and just break it up into small chunks as it cooks)
toss in a bit of minced garlic if you have it, or else just some garlic powder. oregano and basil work well too. toss the boiled perogies in the pan with the veggies and seasonings. when they start to brown up a bit toss in about 2 tablespoons of a spicy tomato sauce. you can buy a big jar of chili and tomato sauce, or use pizza sauce, or i've even used ketchup and a bit of tobasco.
mix it all up so it's all coated and then you're done. it's quick and easy and very good. it's my fallback meal cause this is always stuff i have in my house and i don't mind making it even if i'm tired/lazy.
i also make a lot of meals with canned potatoes. you can get whole, sliced or diced. they're good fried, or i'll use the whole ones with lots of garlic, onion and mushroom and a bit the water from the can, and cook on medium with the lid on, flip them over now and then. they taste like roasted potatoes. goes good with anything. i'll usually just have them with a couple of veggies.
i really like glazed carrots. i've simplified my mom's recipe, i'll cook baby carrots (right from the bag) in a pot of water on medium-high until you can stick a fork in them easily but not too easily. turn off the heat, drain the water. then spoon in some vegan margarine and some brown sugar, and just stir until the margarine and sugar melts and coats the carrots. so good! goes good with squash. i cheat and buy frozen diced butternut squash (like $2.50 for a huge bag that lasts forever). you just heat in a bit of water over the stove, drain the water, mash with a fork and add margarine and brown sugar.
I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way
