Are you tired of seeing veggie burgers in these posts? Sorry! I never realized how often we make them until I started blogging. But they’re easy and filling and if the purpose of these posts is to document what I’m eating (and maybe give you some meal ideas?), well, we eat a lot of veggie burgers. And most of the time I top them with caramelized onions too. Or hummus. I really need to come up with some new ideas, huh?
Well anyway! Here’s what I ate this week:
Sweet Potato & Tofu Enchiladas with Mole Sauce // Okay, I know, these aren’t pretty. But they’re really good! The cumin-spiced sweet potato filling goes well with the flavor of the mole sauce.
Spiced Squash Pancakes // These were not a keeper. They turned out slimy, nothing like the picture in the magazine (although it’s entirely possible that it’s my fault!), and way too gingery for our tastes. These three turned out the best–you don’t want to know what the others looked like.
Fat Elvis Pudding Pops // I had to make these this week because it was exactly one year ago that I won a recipe contest for them. My husband has decided that I need to enter more of these contests and he’s appointed himself my manager. I’m not quite sure what that means, but it sounds good to me.
Roasted Cauliflower & Kalamata Olives + Israeli Couscous // I love Israeli couscous! I think it’s the chewiness. And then I made my favorite roasted cauliflower recipe on the side.
Veggie Burgers with Caramelized Onions + Sesame-Ginger Steamed Broccoli // The broccoli recipe is from Vegetarian Times, but I can’t find the recipe on their website, so I’ve linked it from another blogger. As you can see, we didn’t have sesame seeds. But that’s okay! Because it was still delicious. I want to like steamed vegetables, but I usually don’t–I was surprised that I liked this broccoli so much.
Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie // I bought a pastry bag and a bunch of tips and I was all excited about using it to pipe the mashed potatoes onto this. But then I did it and it looked weird, so I swirled it around with a fork like I usually do. And then I spent the rest of the night wondering why I’m such a miserable, worthless failure. Just kidding! Kind of!
