Cumin-infused Vegetables and Chickpeas over Quinoa from Fat Free Vegan (full recipe in link) – WIN! I love it when I see an ingredient in a recipe list and think, “Really? That? In there?” and then it totally works. The raisins made this dish. I couldn’t stop eating it.
And the rest are all from Everyday Happy Herbivore since I’m still trying to go light!
Andrea’s Puttanesca – Lose. It looked pretty enough, but it was pretty bland. Won’t be repeating this one.
Sweet and Sour Tempeh – This wasn’t a favorite either. I’ve made a very similar dish using her teriyaki sauce from the same book and it was muuuuuch better.
Chili-Sweet Mango Noodles – I hate mangoes. Not their flavor. They’re freaking delicious! But I HATE, HATE, HATE cutting them! They’re so damn juicy and sticky! But DAMNIT they were good in this! To be honest, I wasn’t overly impressed by this one either when I ate it right out of the skillet. But when I ate it cold out of the fridge for lunch the next day? It was a completely different dish. If I make this one again, I’ll definitely make it ahead and eat it cold!
Indian Spiced Chickpeas and Kale – Mmmmmm, kale. Big win! This recipe says it serves two. Yeah… about that… not if I’M one of those two people. Haha This was crazy good. I love the flavor of garam masala, so this was right up my alley!
