Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

Yeah, the ultimate rainy-day-comfort-food.

Mashed Potatoes and some leftover gravy from yesterday. Awesome!

OMG! Chickpea Cutlets..... you're my new boyfriend!

I just made these:

from the Chickpea Cutlet recipe in the vegan bible:

paired with the gravy recipe here I subbed earth balance for the margarine, and arrowroot as a thickener.

I took so long trying to decide just how I was going to eat these babies......over rice, noodles, on a bun, with a side of spuds...... that I gave up and just ate one plain. Even my 14yo son likes these.

This is a keeper!

Veggie Potstickers

I made the best potstickers yesterday. They were filled with leftover stir-fry (broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, spinach, garlic, onions, ginger), and dipped in Garlic Teriyaki/Soy Sauce. I'll probably be making these daily for the rest of this week.

Spicy Chickpea Sammie

WOW! This is so tasty. I found the recipe at Happy Herbivore I didn't have any spicy dijon mustard, so I used yellow. Also I'm not a big fan of cumin so I just added a dash instead of 1/4 teaspoon. I loved it! Not only is it a good sandwich in and of itself, I think it would make a great spread for a veggie sandwich, too.

Broccoli Potato Soup

Found this recipe at VeganDad . It's pretty good considering I didn't have any coconut milk on hand.

And, yep, I'm still using my Christmas dishes :) .
