I'm now on week 2 of being mostly vegetarian and I must say, it's been surprisingly great. I've had a couple of dud meals where they were fairly tasteless. (Thank you, Siracha.) And I've craved meat once or twice (and was able to satisfy the cravings with adding a chicken breast for Nagisa and I or with adding something to my lunch.) But Lena has been a most grateful veggie-child for all my efforts -- good or bad.
I've been the lucky recipient of 3 great new-to-me cookbooks from Value Village: vegetarian slow cooker, a Thai and an Indian. And I've found a number of great websites and/or blogs. But of course, with many of these dishes, you have to get your pantry stocked in order to prepare the food. In the meantime, I experiment with what I have.
This weekend when I did my weekly cooking, I prepared a chocolate chili, a shrimp curry and my daughter's adapted beet burgers. We all love tofu, and Saturday evening's Citrus Roasted Tofu (Food Republic) was a huge hit.
|The julienned carrot/almond side was delicious as well.|
An excellent recipe. And even if you're not a tofu lover, this one may convince you! Give it a try.
