*update*: (forgot to mention for those of you in the Vancouver area, I will be at Choices White Rock location for a book signing and recipe sampling Sat Nov 24th, 1:30 - 3pm. Yep, you get to food shop, recipe sample, and pick up a signed cookbook all at the same time!)
..to keep you going. I must take a break for a little while. For a number of reasons, including finishing my Food Network recipes, and for some other reasons that I won't go into.
I want to leave you with some recipes posts, and also get you thinking about cooking some dishes while I'm away.
First, with US Thanksgiving approaching, think about taking a different path with your main course. Try the Moroccan-Infused Vegetable Phyllo Rolls. Really, I need you to make these. With the Balsamic Maple Sauce. Yes, the sauce is a must. These rolls are not difficult. Basically, you chop and roast up all the veg with delicious seasonings, and then toss in the chickpeas once finished. Scoop and roll in a couple of sheets of phyllo. Bake and serve, drizzled with the sauce. You can even use w/w phyllo - I have, and they are still delicious.
Next, I'll be posting the recipe for Mellow Lentil "Sniffle" Soup from ed&bv. Again, I think you need to make this soup! It's a very soothing, comforting soup that is delicious and easy, and perfect for chilly winter days when you want to cozy up with a big bowl of soup and a chunk of whole-grain bread.
Raspberry Cornmeal Pancakes with Celestial Cream. I know, Celestial Cream is not one of my 'healthier' recipes, but it's a wicked good treat. So, okay, save it for desserts if you want. Or... break it out for a Sunday brunch with your sweetie and serve with Raspberry Cornmeal Pancakes. I'll post the recipe for both - including the gluten-free version of the pancakes! Yay!
With the holidays approaching, we need hummus. Hummus for us, hummus to share at parties. I had trouble deciding which recipe to post. I chose my sister's favorite, Chipotle-Lime Two Bean Hummus... for something deliciously different.
Finally, some pics from my archives of photos:
For the set of Food Network recipes, Peanut Thai Vegetable Stew with tofu, sweet potato, and spinach.
Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup from TEV
Bean and Corn Tortilla Lasagna with Avocado from ed&bv
Unbelievably Rich Chocolate Truffles from ed&bv
Savory Tofu Burgers from TEV. It had been about 4 years since I last made these. Hubby and I enjoyed them SO much. You know, when you have a recipe/food again, but like it's the 1st time? Anyhow, I subbed quick oats for the bread crumbs (used a little less), and they were wonderful.
There are probably more in my photo files, but that should keep you occupied for a while.
I will be organizing my blog some while I'm away. I want to give you a directory of all the recipes from ed&bv that I've posted about, so you can quickly link to see a photo and read about them. Plus, I have a pantry list to post that I've referenced in my book.
