I'm going to try to be better about talking about what we cooked. I'm needing a little more inspiration in the kitchen these days, and why not spend the new year blogging about my kitchen adventures?
Black Bean Burgers & French Fries - We've had these garden burgers in our freezer for awhile now. I'm not sure exactly where they came from or how they got there, but I figured it was about time to use them up. I made french fries with the extra potatoes I had from Christmas dinner. I love homemade fries. They are so easy to make: just cut up the potatoes, no need to peel. toss them with some oil and your favorite seasonings, i like salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. then put them on a baking sheet in the oven for about 30-45 mins. at around 400-425 degrees. yum!
Tempeh Tacos - I love the bulk tempeh from the Alberta Coop. It's huge. Since we moved to North Portland, we rarely have it around anymore. I was recently on Alberta with a friend and stopped in to get some essentials from the coop, including a giant sheet of tempeh! I made the spicy tempeh & black bean burrito recipe from Hungry Vegan. I also made tortillas and a vegan cheese sauce, since we were all out of dairy cheese. Everything was delicious if I do say so myself.
Winter Squash Curry - We had one small squash left from the garden stored in the basement and some precooked stored in the freezer. I've been craving a coconut based curry lately, so I decided to make some with the squash. Another super easy thing to make. I used this recipe but substituted mustard greens that we had frozen from the garden for the spinach.
Leftovers - Willis had to work late, so I just finished off the leftover curry.
Frozen Pizza!! - We like to treat ourselves to lazy evenings. So we ate frozen pizza, chips & salsa, and watched Heroes. It was a good night.
