I just had a dinner of chick peas (soaked overnight and cooked) and steamed carrots, served over tri-colored quinoa.  Yum!

Oatmeal, cooked in water and soy milk, spiced with cardamom and cinnamon, sweetened with blackstrap unsulphured molasses.  Oh, and I cooked it with a bunch of raw almonds thrown in.

Mejadra for lunch today (http://www.seriouseats.com/2012/11/mejadra-from-jerusalem.html).  It was recommended by a friend, but a bit involved for me to make.  Although tasty, it won't be happening again anytime soon :)

This is what I'm eating right now: http://www.theppk.com/2012/12/hoppin-john-bowl-with-red-hot-tahini/

Except I don't like parsley, so I'm using cilantro instead. And I didn't add the smoke stuff either.

That looks good!  And I would also use cilantro instead of garlic and skip the smoke stuff.  I can't do spicy (hot) stuff, so I would have to tone down those ingredients some as well.

Best veggie bean chili: http://vegfrugalhousewife.com/2007/11/15/miss-lilacs-veggie-bean-chili/

Nom.

Looks good.  I could totally go for some chili right now.  I should have made a huge batch of it before I had shoulder surgery on 12/22.  Next time!

Just for the lolz, last night I made an effort to pay attention to what I was putting in my mushroom risotto, and see if it still turned out just as well when I made it completely vegan. It sure did! My version of the dish has more mushrooms than rice, so it's very hearty.

I sauteed some garlic and cumin seed in olive oil.  Then I tossed in some diced tofu and browned it.  Then I added some chick peas that I had soaked and cooked.  Then I added some kamut that I had already cooked.  Then I tossed in some frozen corn that I had taken out from the freezer to thaw earlier today.  Yum.  Can't stop eating it!

Last night I had dahl makhani with yoghurt flatbreads. The dahl makhani was amazing, probably due to the large quantities of butter I used in my make-it-up-as-you-go-along "recipe". Yoghurt flatbreads were less tasty than last time, possibly due to not adding enough salt to the dough. They're fried in butter, so... it was tasty and not all that healthy.

The yoghurt flatbreads were from the cookbook Plenty by Yottam Ottolenghi and it is GOOD. Full of awesome vegetarian recipes.

Yum--sounds delish!!

Assuming that was about my vegan mushroom risotto, I'll make it for you when you come to Perth (I assume your itinerary will consist mostly of eating delicious food with the Perth MMMers, correct?). But I'll add parmesan to my bowl ;-)

Yes, it was in response to your risotto.  I thought about asking if there was any leftover and invite myself over.  ;-)

Oh, yes, sounds like the perfect itinerary for my Perth visit!

And I wouldn't say no to Parmesan either--I am usually but not always on a vegan diet.  But I do tend to put on weight by just looking at cheese.

This morning...and now afternoon I've been enjoying "eggy breakfast bread" (sort of tastes like French toast, super easy to make and no eggs! http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/10/11/eggy-breakfast-bread/) with some chai tea. And browsing these forums for hours. I'm enjoying relaxing on my day off but it is probably time to get off my butt and get outside!

I eat 98% vegan, hard to be perfect, but this mostly whole foods plant based diet makes me feel a lot better than how I used to eat. I'm also trying to cook a lot more this year. I've been working my way through a decent batch of garlic soup this week. I'm desperately trying to recreate the garlic soup I had at a Christmas Market in Vienna last year. My version was okay but too potato-y and...needs more garlic!

Homemade bread for breakfast which is made of all kinds of yummy, nutritious things (rolled oats, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, psyllium, flax, olive oil...) spread with butter from happy local cows and honey. The honey, sadly, was neither local nor "homemade".

Another pot of dahl makhani, but this time I modified the recipe to be even lazier (just dumped everything in the slow cooker!) and I included a whole bag of frozen, chopped spinach. Tastes great.

For a work morning tea on Monday I made vegan chocolate loaf which was very popular :-)

It turned out wonderfully, and I really enjoy it.  I might change the recipe slightly and make a different batch.  My wife used the celery so it was a bit short in the crunch, but I love it anyway.

Made some Naan to go with it, which wasn't quite as good.  turned out like a big biscuit.  Not entirely vegan though, as there was an egg and some yogurt in the bread.

Had some spanish-style brown rice for lunch (I'm all out of beans and other good stuff, so it was just the rice, lol).

Planning on some curried lentils topped with a fried egg for dinner.  Or maybe some vegetable-lentil soup, if I'm not that hungry.  Can you tell I like lentils?  Haha

I should eat more lentils.  Do you favor a certain type of them?  I hate to say it, but I am getting a little tired of chick peas.  Garbanzo fatigue?

I'm not a big fan of chickpeas, unless they are in channa masala or the crunchy-snacky-sriracha ones.

As for lentils, I haven't really tried out all the different kinds; I usually just end up with green lentils because that's what's available at the store, haha.

In my supermarket I can buy both whole green lentils and split red lentils.
When I make soup, I use both. After 15 minutes of cooking, the red ones become a puree, the green ones don't, so you get a soup with a nice texture.
