Howdy, and happy Thanksgiving to those living in Canada's dirty beard! Maybe you will actually be spending time with loved ones, and not checking the innernerds?!? What's up with that?
Anyhow, here are a few noms I made recently. I can't say I followed a recipe for either, but they were both inspired by blog posts/actual recipes. First, these smoky potato wedges from Vegan Crunk. She doesn't give the recipe from the cookbook it came from, The Complete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions. I'll be damned if I'll buy yet another cookbook from which I use a total of two recipes, but I wanted smoky wedges so I decided to wing it! I tossed potato wedges in smoked paprika, potato starch, olive oil, and salt, and baked until crisp. They were really good.
Now, this next thing was really special albeit something I might be inclined to overlook. Beans and squash--deceptively simple! But I promise you this is really wonderful!! It was based on this recipe from the PPK. I'm sure it'd be great if you just followed the recipe, but I used way more coriander and cumin, and substituted a chipotle in adobo + tomato paste in lieu of the jalapeno.
Holy crap, this was so good!!! Make it now! Or after your Thanksgiving coma!!
