First, I wish I’d known about this: VeganMoFo (Vegan Month of Food)! I could have blogged. About food!
|I knew right here that I would not be disappointed. I am disappointed
that my camera acted quite wonky this session though…
In any case, October is Vegetarian Awareness Month, which kicked off with World Vegetarian Day yesterday. So, you know. Be aware of Vegetarians. Heck, become one. I think you’ll enjoy the health benefits… and you can win cash. Or you can always do the Weight Watchers/Doctor Oz Transformation Nation. I think you’ll enjoy the health benefits… and you can win cash.
|I burned at least 2 Weight Watchers Points Plus Shaking
the muffin tin to get the muffins level. What’s this,
blaming the camera?
|The Sesame-Spinach Salad with Mango was – hey, you can’t
blame a camera for your bad photography skills!
The thing is, I had a fancy dinner with The FiL and The Husband all set and ready to go, except then we all went out shopping and did many things that made fancy dinner highly unlikely to have until next Thursday. So I dipped into my new score of Quick-Fix Vegetarian for a quick-fix rescue!
The Sesame-Spinach Salad with Mango came together in a flash. I think the tang of the tahini/tamari dressing was balanced nicely with the sweetness of the mango (thank goodness we got a good mango). Also, there was spinach, so you know I was happy.
|Baked Beans and Rice. Added garnish of Cilantro.
Not an add for Cutco… but they are good knives.
Then, Baked Beans and Rice. As simple as it sounds, but it came together lightning fast (the secret was veg in the form of salsa). I liked it, though The Husband thought it was too salsa-y. I think really though a few shakes of Liquid Smoke may be in order the next time around.
|Dinner, with ease, served!|
3) To have dried cranberries and chia involved.
I could even tell this was something special… sweet without being too sweet, moist, incredibly dreamy and pillow-y with bursts of dried cranberries… and, of course, full of pumpkin-y goodness.
|They grew in the oven!|
The only thing I’d do over likely is to swirl the chia seed onto the top. I sprinkled it on, but some loose seeds fell off when removing them from the pan. Not a lot though… and still wound up moist and tasty. Please try if you can, I think you would not be disappointed!
Mix dry ingredients: Flours, baking powder, salt, and spices.
|Okay, I can’t make things look cool with a camera.
I wish you could smell and taste these though.
