A New Food Project?

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

For a year ending last May I created a new vegan pizza every week and it was a lot of fun. I think I ended up making 54 original pizzas. I think that some people thought I ate nothing but pizza, but no, it's definitely a feast food, not an everyday food for me.

I was thinking that my next project would be all about the foods I eat every day, and that I'd use my extensive cookbook collection. Honestly, I'd love to show people how easy this can be. Very rarely do I make anything really complicated.

Here's a start: This is from the China Study Cookbook and it's just potatoes steamed in a little veg. broth and topped with chopped raw green peppers, tomatoes and green onions. I had them for breakfast with a veg-tofu scramble and tempeh bacon. No oil in this recipe!

Betty Goes Vegan is a really fun cookbook, lots of nostalgic recipes! I made the toasted ginger-tamari pumpkin seeds. They'll be great on salads, on rice, as a garnish, and yeah, you could eat them by the handful too. These are really good!

And I've been making this 'glowing green smoothie' from Beauty Detox Foods a lot. It's made with green apple, lemon, celery, cucumber, kale, and a little stevia. And like it's name claims, it really does make my skin glow. Swear!

'Bake and Destroy' is a new one by a hip vegan cookbook author. She named this one after a metal band, so it's unfotunately named 'Cannibal Corpse Crockpot' and it is DELICIOUS! It's jackfruit in a tomato-y barbecue sauce and cooked in a crockpot until it falls apart. I forgot to take a photo of the book, but I had it on flatbread with some cashew 'cheddar' and steamed kale, and some bean-veg. soup.

I just got the new Eat To Live Cookbook and this is a stunningly simple and delicious recipe. No oil in this one either. It's the Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad. Just shredded Brussels sprouts, garlic, pepper, currants, toasted walnuts, and a little nutritional yeast to round it all out. I'm thinking of adding this one to the Thanksgiving feast. Hint: you can buy those shredded sprouts at Trader Joe's. This recipe came together in 5 minutes.
