So today was yet another stressful one, and I didn't manage to get home until late. Hence, dinner at 8pm. Again. However, tonight's dinner (as in "quick meal before I get on finishing that lab report that's due tomorrow morning"), simple as it was, afforded me another opportunity to try out a recipe from Eat, Drink & Be Vegan:
The goddess garbanzos has so many of my favorite ingredients in it, so I was really excited to try it: garbanzos, tahini, Vegenaise, lemon juice, celery! I'm not a die-hard goddess dressing fan but all doctored up like this, it's amazing. It tastes a little like mock chicken or tuna salad but so much more diversely flavorful (and, obviously, cruelty-free).
What made the sandwich all the more fantastic was the homemade whole wheat bread that JP made last night! Ooh it's so delicious. It's a simple recipe from Joy of Cooking, substituting soy margarine for the dairy, and it bakes up in no time. It's wheaty and delicious and thick. And there's NO. GODDAMN. HONEY! Damn right. Fuckers putting honey in my bread...
And what's dinner without dessert...probably a few inches on my thighs (boo), but I only had a tiny piece of the
It was a little sweet for my taste, but then again, I'm not a huge fan of 'cream' or 'silk' pies, but it was good enough to eat a piece last night AND today. I also kind of cheated, the crust is a store-bought organic one. :/ I know, way not environmentally-friendly but I was cranky and in a hurry. The pie needs three hours to set, which I kind of didn't take into consideration - we tried our first slices at 9.15pm, after only two hours of setting. It was a little runny, I recommend the full 3 hours if not overnight.
One last foodpr0n. JP made dinner for me last night (I made the pie)! It was the cashew ginger tofu from ED&BV. HOLY CRAP was it amazing. Lightly gingerified and so CREAMY! We served it over leftover brown rice, some broccoli, and the last bit of some mixed frozen veggies that we REALLY needed to use up. It was scrumptious. I want to try making it with peanut butter instead of cashew butter, and maybe put some chili powder in it as well, spice it up!
Incidentally, sorry my photos suck. My camera is not very fancy-schmancy. I will try to get better shots once the fucking SUN returns to Oregon.
