Whew, another week past…only two more weeks until my winter break and I am in dire need of a vacation already.
I’m not sure why but I was craving curry. I was not even sure if I even liked curry but for some compelling reason I decided to give one a try. So I found a recipe in Veganomicon that sounded intriquing. It called for cauliflower and parsnips. I’ve always ingnored cauliflower. You rarely hear anyone praising it and a certain junior high school health class had really turned me off of cauliflower. Similarly with parsnips, growing up there were never any parsnips on the dinner table and I’ve always assumed that they weren’t the vegetable for me. But I was craving curry. And Veganomicon has yet to fail me. So I made this Red Lentil-Cauliflower Curry and it was good, it was damn good. It has just the right amount of heat and the cauliflower and parsnips really make it particularly texture wise.
After a way too long hiatus, Lost finally returned last night! Such an occasion calls for something sugary and Coconut Heaven Cupcakes from Vegan with a Vengeance with their tropical island essence would be perfect. Aren’t they pretty in their Martha Stewart Crafts cupcake liners I scored at Michael’s on clearance?
And finally, tonight I made another dish out of Veganomicon–Chickpeas Romesco. This was really good as well, the sauce was wonderful with it’s hint of roasted red pepper and its creaminess complimented the texture of the chickpeas quite well.
So that was my week, have you all have a great weekend!
