Does anyone else have a big cooking session at the weekend to make sure they have some yummy stuff in the fridge for the next week? If I'm not working I love to spend Sunday in the kitchen. This weekend I have made the following to see me through:

 

Cashew-cream, broccoli and spinach quiche

Mustardy potato salad

Chandra malai kofta with rice

Nut, seed and oat bread

Marbled banana and chocolate loaf

Cinnamon-walnut granola

Big tub of fruit salad

Seitan (to make jerk seitan later in the week at a friends house)

 

If I have time later, I might make some hummus. There is already lots of bean and seitan chilli in the freezer that I can top some baked potatoes with too. 

 

What are you making this weekend?

Mine is relatively boring.  I just made a huge batch of black bean and veggie soup for lunches for the work week and also a big batch of winter squash as a lunch side for the week at work.  I added cayenne and red pepper flakes to the soup to make it spicy and extra warm since this week is going to be brutally cold.  

 

Nooch, your stuff sounds wonderful!

I'm eating food next week, but I don't know what, yet. :cool:


Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Oh Nooch that sounds wonderful!

That list kinda took me down a notch--I'm making a huge pot of hot-sour soup I'm really proud of! It's got carrots, baby bok choy, tofu, sprouts, and since the fresh bamboo shoots were only sold in big quantities I tried a bag of soy marinated shoots. They taste really good, but are coated in veg oil. All in a mushroom ginger garlic braggs chili broth!

I also made some delicious  patties with okara and oats and some gluten to bind with a bunch of spices. They're gone already!


Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

I like to make casseroles and pizzas, or a big container of nut-cheese or other tasty dips to eat with bread-like things throughout the week.

 

I tend to lean quite heavily on my blender.

 

But I don't have enough refrigerator space to store a whole week's worth of food, so I cook every couple days.

My 'big batches' tend to just be soup and seitan which then go in the freezer *is boring*

 

When I make pasta or rice dishes I do enough for two days and keep it in the fridge.  I haven't mastered the art of making a sensible amount of coleslaw so that lasts me at least 4 days!  Anything else is mainly cooked/prepared fresh.

I had made a wonderful vegan stew a few days ago, which will be going into my freezer later today. I love to make huge batches of soups or stews, eat it for a few days, and freeze the rest for when I'm in the mood again.

 

I'm on a HUGE (homemade) ramen kick ATM, and this will be my first time making vegan ramen. I'm so excited! I'm also going to be picking up the ingredients to make tofu summer rolls, and vegetable stir fry. Other than that, I'm not sure.

Home made ramen? ^_^  Sounds great!  

 

Please post pictures when it's done, if you can.

 

 

I haven't done a lot of bulk pasta making, but that sounds like a great thing to prepare on the weekends for eating during the week.

Some delicious-sounding meals going on! We are lucky in that we have two fridges so plenty of room to store containers of food (though bf sometimes complains that I'm taking too much space in his beer fridge). I get really hungry at work so once I'm home and have walked Max again its good to have something to reheat or that can be pulled together quickly. Planning a big cook up also helps me to write the shopping list so I am more likely to only buy what we need. I'm working this weekend so Monday will be cooking day, plus some omni friends to impress that evening...
