Made banana and coconut muffins (based on the vegan banana bread recipe from Jack Monroe, but I use some coconut in place of plain flour) and brought three with me to have as a snack this evening as I have to travel to work. Have just scarfed the lot of them sitting at my desk. Oh well. Life's tough sometimes :-)

Panfried okra.  The okra is from my backyard, and the cornmeal came from a farmer in the next county.

One pot pasta + vegetable + protein:

1. Heat some water in a large pot.
2. When water just stars to boil, put in a few eggs.
3. When water gets to a roiling boil, salt and throw in pasta.
4. Throw veggies (green beans, asparagus, broccoli rabe: I prefer ones that are easy to wash) into same pot and parboil ~3min. I have bowl of cold water nearby; bowl doesn't really need to get washed after this step.
5. My husband doesn't like eggs, so I threw a veggie dog in after the veggies are done.
6. Remove eggs after ~11min (I like the yolks a little soft) with slotted spoon.
7. Drain pasta.
8. In same pot, melt plenty of butter and sizzle some mushrooms.
9. Pour in store-bought pasta sauce: many brands need ~1tsp of honey for my taste.

Dinner tonight and lunch for the next two days.

Dinner of green beans, pan fried with garlic in coconut oil.  Also leftover mashed sweet potatoes with coconut oil, salt, cinnamon.  I had a lot of protein earlier today so didn't have much this meal.

What is Yumm Sauce??

Now that I'm aproximately 2000 miles away from the nearest Cafe Yumm, I've been trying to re-create the Yumm factor. I started with this recipe: http://talesofanamazonwoman.blogspot.com/2013/04/homemade-yumm-sauce.html,

But for my tastes it has too much acid, so we cut the lemon juice in half, and doubled the garlic and added extra water. Really good hint is to pulverize the Almonds before hand to the best of your ability, or the sauce stays extra chunky. Occasionally we'll blend in an Avocado for extra creaminess.

Thanks!  Looks great!

Fortunately, I will be in Seattle next month, and might treat myself to the Cafe Yumm there!

This sounds delicious.

Right now I am eating steamed sweet potatoes and steamed carrots.  No seasonings.

Smoothie! After indulging just a bit too much at the christmas markets in December, I decided to declare January and February soups and smoothies months (smoothies for breakfast, soups for lunch). So far, I'm really glad I did. I do normally try to buy mostly local and there isn't much apart from apples around so to facilitate smoothie-making, I've resorted to frozen fruit. Sometimes you have to choose your battles. And much as I'd like to like green smoothies, I just don't.

I made a fabulous vegetable soup at the weekend as well, used loads more spices than I normally would and it worked out really well. Think I'll do spicy carrot and lentil soup this weekend, I haven't had that for ages.

Peas and brown rice, with black pepper and a few dashes of Bragg's Liquid Aminos (a healthier (?) version of soy sauce).  Yum.

I had some vegetarian enchiladas which were pretty awesome for lunch today (cottage cheese, garbanzo beans, spinach, garlic, onions in the enchiladas with a couple dollops of greek yogurt and melted cheese on top.)

I guess nothing at the moment, but last night, I made falafel burgers. Despite making falafel for several years now, I hadn't made them as burgers yet. Usually I just shape into balls or small patties to stick in pita bread.

It was my first time baking them instead of frying. I was nervous that they would suck, but they actually were pretty good. I defrosted my dough, turned on the oven to 450F, and stuck my lightly oiled cast iron skillet in there to preheat. I shaped the dough into patties and put them into the hot skillet. I put the skillet on the bottom rack and let go for 15 minutes. I then turned them and cooked them for another 5 minutes. The perfect browning on them - looked so much better than all the pics I had seen online of baked falafel (one of the reasons I didn't have hopes too high). I put the burgers on torta rolls with tzatziki, fresh spinach, red onion, and harissa. I was afraid the burger might have dried out, but omg absolutely not. It was moist and delicious. Husband and kid approved, they definitely want them again.

Tonight is another vegetarian dish - colcannon. To keep going, pretty sure both Tuesday and Wednesday are chana masala. Thursday I have no idea, but Friday is veggie pizza from Costco food court.

Recipe for your falafel burgers, please?  Thx.

A few years ago, I came upon this recipe for falafel - http://toriavey.com/toris-kitchen/2011/01/falafel/

It is a good base to start with and learn from. Over time, I added flour to help bind and a leavening agent, usually baking powder. I use about twice as much of the spices as she suggests, but I like the strong flavors. IME, the dough should be very wet. You can just shape balls or patties with it. You may wonder how it will hold together in oil or survive being flipped, but somehow it does, and it makes for very moist and fluffy falafel.

Most important thing is to not cut corners and used canned or otherwise cooked chickpeas. The flavor is just miles off. You can freeze part of a large batch of soaked chickpeas for later if you want to. Falafel dough and cooked balls/patties freeze and reheat really well themselves.

 I just finished off a surprisingly good high protein vegetable soup made from three storebrand cans -  one vegetarian vegetable, one mixed veggies with no salt added, and one can of chickpeas with no salt added. I dump them all in a casserole, added garlic, curry powder,  and black pepper until it tasted good, and had several days worth of veggie-packed lunches for virtually no effort and very little cost.

I guess I had a vegetarian day, mostly because of a lack of food around the house.  Mandarin Oranges for breakfast.  A PB&J sandwich for lunch at work.  Now I just finished a cheese and mustard sandwich as my dinner.

I really need to get to the grocery store soon...  :-)
