Recently I joined the Vegan Mainstream Cookbook Club on Google+. The ‘Let’s cook together theme’ this month is herbs. Although I didn’t do much about this yet, I did prepare the challenge recipe of the week, which was ‘Lemon Cashew-Basil Pesto on Pasta’ from Dreena Burton:
Name: Lemon Cashew-Basil Pesto on Pasta
From: Eat, drink & be vegan
Author: Dreena Burton
Comments: Delicious fresh tasting pesto
Not immediately world’s best picture, but this was so good I really want to show it overhere:
roasted tomato-fennel pasta with pine nuts & capers (recipe from Eat, drink & be vegan)
plus marinated & oven baked tofu
I really like that title of Dreena Burton‘s latest cookbook. I bought it last summer but hadn’t used it to much. So last week I decided it was finally the time for it, watch these delicious results:
Teenage girl is having exams again. That means for me that it’s that time again to spoil her on food.
I decided on the ‘Cacao-coconut chili’ from ‘Eat, drink & be vegan’. What girl wouldn’t like a dinner meal which contains a chocolate flavour? Well, it looks like she wasn’t that found of it at all. Probably because it has coconut in it, and teenage girl doesn’t like that too much. For me I was crazy about it. I almost felt like eating a ‘bounty’ for dinner. One of my favourtie candies, but for obvious reasons, haven’t been eating it for a long time.
I changed the recipe a little bit. I only added black beans and didn’t add a pepper, allspice or corn kernels. Instead I served it with tortilla chips. This dish is quiet heavy on the stomach.
PS: In dutch we say CACAO for COCOA. Very confusing!
