African Peanut Soup

My Aldi had an amazing sale on sweet potatoes, so I pinned this recipe...but when I got to the store they were all sold out! Not to be deterred, I bought a butternut squash instead to substitute. I didn't have the Ethiopian Berbere spice mix (which is a shame as I'm sure it would be amazing, I love Ethiopian cooking) but I did use the soy sauce for a bit of umami.

When I first tried it, it was okay, but seemed to be lacking a little something. I thought about it and realized that with using squash instead of sweet potato and natural peanut butter (no sugar added) I'd cut a lot of sweetness out of the recipe. So I sprinkled in just the barest touch of agave and all of a sudden it was alive with vibrant flavors.

Delicious!

I've made something similar to this in the past, and yes, it's scrumptious!

Mushroom Stew

Delicious! And just the kind of thing I want in the winter...so comforting and warming, especially over a helping of garlic smashed potatoes.

And it was cheap, too. Total cost including wine and potatoes: $4.92. Made enough for 4 hearty helpings of stew and potatoes.

I made creamy chipotle lime bean salad using this recipe: https://itdoesnttastelikechicken.com...me-bean-salad/

Then I mixed it with pasta and turned it into pasta salad, amazing! I'm having it for dinner with a green salad and baked potato and it'll be my lunch for the work week. Meal prep!

I've been eating a lot of vegetable fried rice lately, homemade version of the Chinese takeaway stuff - but better. Today I'm doing tofu and vegetable fried rice.

* I boil up some short grain brown rice. I cup dry volume. Drain and put to one side.

* Then finely slice (almost) everything in the fridge (today it was: two onions, a bulb of garlic, half a white cabbage, three bell peppers, handful of mushrooms, one big carrot, 1 cup frozen peas).

* Next I crumble up the tofu (I press this for a while first, then pat dry) into a bowl and sprinkle over some nutritional yeast, black salt and vegetable boullion powder to flavour.

* Then fry up the tofu in a nice hot frying pan, so it goes good and rubbery.

* Then fry the veggies in a big pan till just tender.

* Add in the rice and tofu and heat through.

* Season with soya sauce and serve.

At home this past weekend, I cooked some white beans (great northern) and blackeyed peas in my crock pot (after soaking and rinsing them) with water (and then some potatoes, after the beans has cooked a bit- I didn't want the potatoes overcooked). At work I cooked some couscous and chopped frozen spinach in the microwave and had my beans and potatoes with that.

Oohmahgord! This is yumshious.

Made it for tonights tea. Perfectly set, savoury, excellent all round (though I did add extra salt and oil).

Served it with a can of ratatouille and soya-buttered baguette - perfecto.

Instead of boiling the potatoes, I sliced and steamed them till tender.

Next time I'm going to add other veg, like red pepper and peas.
