Included in the first batch of recipes I tried is this absolutely gorgeous Tuscan Beans and Greens Soup. She has it served over garlic toast but I skipped that. This soup is a beautiful and hearty soup packed with cannellini beans, tomato, garlic, onion and greens. Chloe uses escarole in the recipe but I decided to go with spinach. I can't wait to try this for dinner tomorrow!
This recipe was the one I was most excited about! It is the Mongolian BBQ Seitan and holy wow!! This is an absolutely gorgeous dish! It has warmth and a touch of sweetness from the spices and touch of agave along with the earthiness of mushroom, heartiness of seitan and freshness of snow peas. I am so glad I tried this one!
I added some sesame seeds as garnish and it looks so good. The sauce is thick and sticky and this is perfect to warm up on a cold, disgusting day like today.
This dish is not in Chloe's books but they were a happy mistake! I was set to make the Mini Potato Skins Stuffed with Avocado Salsa but I only noticed once it was too late that we have entered mealy, disgusting tomato season so this was not happening. I had already roasted my potatoes and wanted to do something fun with them so I decided to make baby twice baked potato bites!
I scooped out the center of each potato and took the insides and mashed them up with some daiya and fresh green onion. If I had been prepared I would have had some sour supreme to help make the filling more creamy but this recipe developed in the moment so I did the best I could. They actually came out good and look so adorable! There are a ton here so I'm wondering if they would freeze well.
Anyway, that's what I've been up to today. I'll try and photograph some meals this week to keep you posted! I hope you have all been well!
