Jeni’s comment on my previous post about her to do list gave me an idea for a VeganMoFo post. First of all, how do you guys keep track of the food inspiration you get from other blogs and websites? I keep up with blogs using Google Reader to subscribe to their posts. So when I see something I want to make, I just star it. Then I can go back and look at my starred items later for inspiration. If it is something on a website, but not blogged, I’ll bookmark it. Eventually, I try to put all of those into MacGourmet recipe software. Try.
So that brings me to the post idea. What is languishing in my starred items list in Google Reader? No, I’m not going to post them all. But let’s see what kind of things are hanging out in there:
Sweet Potato Falafel with Yogurt-Tahini Sauce: Sweet potatoes are so tasty, cheap and healthy that I’m always looking for new ways to use them. These would probably freeze up well for quick meal options.
Chilli Tofu with Beans and Bok Choy: This doesn’t look like your average stir-fry. That little bit of tamarind is going to give it a nice sour note.
Samosa Soup: It’s officially soup season and this one sounds amazing. Who can’t use another potato soup variation?
Seitan Chorizo Crumbles: If you don’t have a local source for veggie chorizo or you just want to save a few bucks, make your own!
Sweet Potato Pugliese Bread: Have you got a bit of leftover sweet potato? Make some bread!
Tunisian Spicy Breads (Touarits): Wouldn’t these make an amazing appetizer? Just replace the egg with your favorite egg substitute and it’s vegan.
Frosted Orange Cream Cupcakes: It’s always a good idea to have gluten free recipes on hand should you need them.
African Peanut Soup with Red Beans: I love a whole meal in a bowl. This soup has got you covered nutritionally.
That’s a good start. I probably could have had a long post just on sweet potato recipes I’d saved. Maybe I’ll do one of these a week with everything I’ve got saved up.
