Made up some cashew cream then poured some fresh brewed coffee into the blender to use up the leftover bit of cream (instead of scraping it out with a spatula) made a very tasty, frothy latte :)

I got some mangoes and basil from the reduced produce bowl ($.50/lb) and sliced them up, tossed them together, added a pinch of salt and had a very tasty little salad.

I made some veganized, low-sugar, whole grain oatmeal cookies today. The kids eat them to replace the overpriced and over-processed granola bars we used to buy by the truck-load.

A quick lunch: salad (mixed greens, strawberries, and homemade balsamic vinaigrette) and spaghetti!

I'm not a vegetarian, and I'm not a good cook, but last night I made a giant batch of Quinoa with Orange and Red peppers, red onions, green onions, black beans, pinto beans, jalapeno, avocado, lime/olive oil/wine vinagrette dressing.  It was REALLY good.  That's the first time someone asked me for a recipe AND the first time someone asked if they could take some home. yum  I'm about to eat leftovers for lunch.

Wow--sounds really good.  Mind sharing the recipe?  Thanks.
I got it on epicurious, but like all epicurious recipes, the recipe is not meant to be followed.  So I looked at the reviews to see what other people added and just started adding a lot of things that added color (the bell peppers, etc.)  The green onions were fantastic.  I really don't think you can go wrong.  Next time I want to add pomegranate seeds and my brother says to add diced apples too.  The only thing I wouldn't know how to improvise on is the dressing -- so here's the basic recipe as a starting point:

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Quinoa-and-Black-Bean-Salad-12245

I've had a kitchen contraption called "the alligator" that I received as a gift and never used.  That thing is GREAT for dicing up vegetables FAST & EASY.

I turned some leftover veggies and rice into a veg curry by adding curry powder and some cooked red lentils. Mango chutney on top.:)

I just had a curried pear pumpkin soup, and punjabi-style cabbage (band gobi) which I put in a whole wheat pita as a roll up sandwich.  I'm very excited about Indian vegan cooking.  I made the band gobi from this book by Anupy Singla:

     http://www.indianasapplepie.com/products/vegan-indian-cooking

Last week I made a tomato onion chutney from this book by Meeru Dhalwala:

     http://www.eatyourbooks.com/library/83271/vijs-at-home-relax-honey

Yum!  I put it on toast all week long.

Grumbly brumbles last night after a long day, ask girlfriend "WHAT DINNAR HAS U!" whilst brandishing a hefty oaken club.

Girlfriend, "Uh... I made some rice earlier?"

"AH HAH! WICE!" says I. "ME EAT WICE!"

Hunted and gathered in the fridge for some green onions (tops were a little sad, but bottom half of the stalk was good), half of a red onion (center layer was trying to do something sciency, tossed that), drained black beans, soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, salt and pepper, and threw it all in a wok. Two fried eggs on top, then smothered it in sweet red chili sauce.

It's sort of a bad Korean bibimbap, but by the end I had turned from a caveman back into a normal person. And I cleaned out half of the old veg in the fridge while I was at it.

The typical spouse is made of meat, so they're disqualified as vegetarian or vegan.

Oatmeal, cooked with water and soy milk.  With a splash of unsulphured blackstrap molasses.

I'm also steaming carrots and sweet potatoes for lunch/dinner.  Will eat them with chick peas and kamut.  Yum.

Anyone else loving kamut these days?

Kamut and pinto beans.  Nearly the end of the month, and I am almost out of groceries.  I'm trying to make pinto beans last through the week.  Come on, June!!

Me again.

I am eating kamut, white northern beans, and a steamed yukon gold potato.  With a little olive oil drizzled on top, and some sea salt and black pepper.

On the side, I am munching on some raw sunflower seeds.

My diet is pretty simple these days.  I like it that way.

Not eating it yet, but for lunch today I have a paneer curry.

The sauce is 1/2 jar rogan josh paste, two zucchini, three big tomatoes and about a cup of cashews, cooked together in the slow cooker then blitzed with a stick mixer. Then I stirred through pan fried paneer and roasted sweet potato chunks.

It's every bit as good as it sounds.

I'm always very intrigued by your diet, especially when I read your journal. Would you mind occassionally sharing photos of your meals?

Hi Happier!  Nice to know that my diet intrigues you.  I would think many people would consider it quite boring.

I'm not very tech savvy, but sure, I will try to post a photo now and then.  Too late for this meal, though.  It's already down the hatch!

Your meal sounded delish!

My SO eats paleo, and this was simple enough to substitute the broth for vegetable broth and make it vegan. I enjoy slow cooking as it saves me the time. Put the kale in towards the end, or steam it and stir it in at the end.

Just polished off a bowl of brown rice, stir fried in a tablespoon of olive oil with garlic, with about a cup of pinto beans (cooked previously from dry in pressure cooker)  and topped off with a generous amount of Chonga's salsa.

So cheap, so satisfying, so easy, and so delicious.

Sweet potato (that I baked yesterday) and kamut (that I cooked this morning).  I basically have no other food in the house.  But I'm not complaining, as it is delicious.

Right now I'm enjoying a delicious dinner consisting of a huge pile of amazing, fresh, local, organic sautéed veggies (courtesy of our CSA) and fresh tofu over organic brown rice with an ear of roasted corn on the cob.  I love summer.

Not eating it now, but dinner last night: Quinoa with black beans (just from a can, heated in the microwave with some leftover tomatoes), sweet potato, sauteed peppers and onions, white cheddar cheese (I'm mostly vegan but cheese...damn) and cilantro on top, inspired by my favorite dish at a local restaurant, a breakfast burrito with most of the same ingredients. Yum! Quinoa is so easy to make ahead and goes with everything.

That sounds amazing.  I think I'm going to add those ingredients to my list next time I go to the grocery store so I can give this dish a whirl!

I am eating a bit of a peculiar breakfast:

Kamut, chick peas, some toasted sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, a spash of soy milk, and a drizzle of molasses.  Warmed up in the microwave.  Tasty and lots of protein.

I might eat a Braeburn apple after I finish this.

Tortilla with cheese and lots of mashed avocado. Yum…had to go and make a second one. Now I'm cranking up the Vitamix for my green smoothie of lettuce, cucumber, some yellow pepper, and fresh parsley, with some water and ice cubes to make it nice and cold and liquid-y.

Big mixed greens salad topped with quinoa, sautéed yellow squash & zucchini (from friend's garden), tomatoes, chopped walnuts, dried cranberries, drizzled with poppyseed dressing. Served with a side roll. and the rest of the split pea soup i had from yesterday.

When I am not sure what to have for dinner, I just throw it all in a salad!

Veggie chili (dried black, red, and white beans, tomatoes, garlic, red pepper, onion, herbs/spices, crockpot) and skillet cornbread. Very good, and we have leftover chili which will be used as enchilada filling in a couple of days.

Another salad topped with almonds, dried cranberries, croutons, mozzerella cheese and poppyseed dressing (cleaning out the pantry/fridge). Side of Roasted corn. Two small pancakes (I make ahead and freeze between wax paper - heat in microwave for 45seconds or until warm) topped with peanut butter.

So, having read this thread, where would a 'newbie' start?

For the last 50+ years vegetables meant potatoes, canned green beans, corn and peas. Oh, and an occasional green salad (iceberg lettuce w/ dressing).

There are obviously so many things out there that are food but I don't have a clue.

Also, cooking for one.

Thanks
