What Vegans Eat: 2013, Week 18, Part 1

Spring! We’re continuing slowly and totally unmethodically cooking our way through our two Ottolenghi books (Plenty and Jerusalem).

Seems our styles are the same—where Ryan loves simple, hearty, one-pot meals, I like dishes that take a little love and a lot of spice for a spin on creative comfort food. Thus I slaver over Ottolenghi.

I’m a little late on this, but this last Sunday, Ryan whipped up a creative chickpea creation (and infused his phalanges with capsaicin in the process). I went with Ottolenghi.

  1. First lunch: Roasted pepper and chickpea salad
  2. Second lunch: Chicken with carmelised onion and cardamom rice, from Jerusalem

    Are you eating chicken now? Or is that faux?

    • Super awesome faux!

      Gardein chicken scallopini—it’s fooled even omnis into thinking that I cooked something separate for them that included chicken. (Clearly these people don’t know me well enough…)

        Love it! Nicely done as always!

        BTW every single time i make beets (which is a lot these days) I think of you 🙂

        • Because beets are awesome. =) And the best campfire dessert (except s’mores).
