I am continuing my quest to make more of the delicious recipes from Veganomicon this week with two casseroles.The girl will probably not be happy (she doesn’t like her food to be touching!), but I am really excited about these recipes. The menu only goes through Thursday this week because the kids are going to their dad’s on the weekend, and I get paid on Friday. I will probably eat something out on Friday, then do a new plan on Saturday.
Sunday: Carmelized Onion-Butternut Roast with Chestnuts, roasted Brussel’s sprouts, cranberry sauce
Monday: Mole Skillet Pie with Greens, steamed broccoli, orange/blackberry fruit salad
Tuesday: Tempeh noodle casserole, steamed broccoli/carrots/snap peas, pineapple
Wednesday: Lentils and rice with carmelized onion tahini sauce, beets, steamed sweet potatoes
Thursday: Peanut noodles, steamed green beans, green smoothies
I am going to use up some of the turnip greens that are still going strong in my garden despite the frosty nights, and the butternut squash I still have from the garden, so I am still using some garden produce! You can also see how much I love carmelized onions in this menu. I tried to add plenty of plained steamed veggies and furits to the menu so that the girl doesn’t starve, but I know she will also be happy on Tuesday and Wednesday–even though the main dishes on those nights aren’t plain foods, she still likes them. I am going to wear her down eventually on the casserole thing, I am sure of it!
