Okay, after yesterday’s Pot Roast, I just wanted to prove that I can be open-minded and versatile and am just as comfortable eating the “non-meat” meals as any respectable Vegan!
I don’t think I have ever had as many vegetables in one meal at one time as we had last night!
Please indulge me as I try to recall the list:
- Beets ( red and golden)
- Brussels sprouts
- Onions ( red and white)
- Peppers ( red and yellow)
Add to this, three kinds of lentils, two kinds of nuts, couscous and rice!
The meal started with a salad trio:
Roasted beet, thinly sliced red onion, walnuts on a bed of mixed lettuce
Arugula bundles, tied with chives, topped with pine nuts and a lemon & oil dressing
Shredded brussel sprouts with thinly sliced red and yellow peppers.
The next course consisted of:
Mushrooms stuffed with couscous, carrot, mushroom stem, carmelized onion and roasted garlic
Roasted asparagus topped with carmelized onions and sliced red and yellow peppers.
The main course was: stuffed cannelloni and spaghetti and “meat balls”
cannelloni “shells” of rounds of steamed leek stuffed with black, red and green lentils with carmelized onions and couscous. Baked and then topped with organic tomato sauce.
Spaghetti and “meat balls”
Roasted spaghetti squash topped with “meat balls” made of black Thai “forbidden rice” , carmelized onion, roasted garlic and rice flour to bind.
See, TOTALLY Vegan and not a DROP of tofu in sight!!!Veggies do not have to be boring!
