Last week I made my Chipotle Yam Wedges from Vive, and also my Mi-So Good Gravy from TEV for dipping!
As I've mentioned before, we call the orange tubers "yams" in Canada, while most of you in the US and other countries know them as "sweet potatoes". Whatever the name, this recipe uses the orange taters and we love 'em!!
This yam recipe is very simple, and uses Chipotle Hot Sauce (I use Tabasco brand) that you see in other recipes in Vive. Normally, I pair these wedges with guacamole, but tonight I wanted my tangy, zippy Mi-So Good Gravy from TEV.
This gravy is a cinch to make. Add all ingredients to your saucepan, whiz up with an immersion blender (or whiz in a blender before adding to your pot), and then heat up! Done!!
The arrowroot will thicken the gravy once it reaches a boil. I don't use a lot of oil in the recipe, so it is not high in fat if that's a consideration for you. Though, you can add extra olive oil and it will make the gravy much richer in taste. Regardless of how much oil you use, the gravy is tangy-wonderful from the seasonings including miso, vinegar, ginger, and a bit of garlic! As a note, this gravy is also yummy on top of veggie patties made with grains/beans, and with potato dishes!
Now, that's all my food talk for today because I MUST show you my fabu new necklace that I ordered from Leslie. I just received it in the mail on Monday and have been giddy with how much I love it!!
Leslie has other bead necklaces and bracelets, and will soon have a website to showcase her designs, but check out this post to see some of her other items (she may not still have all of these, but she has others too, so check with her)!!
Here I am wearing it... brown is not the best color to show off this necklace in a photo, but it looks great 'in person'.
Finally, I want to tell everyone about Harmonia's new Veggin Out vegan/vegetarian discussion board. I know many of you already know about it, but if not, pop over and have a chat!
Alrighty, that's all for now folks... go cook, go buy some fabu jewelry, and then go chat about it all!! :)
