I made this soup at the beginning of October. The recipe was on the back of Bob's Red Mill Black Bean Soup Mix.
Lots of butternut squash! It called for roasted corn; you just throw some frozen corn on a cookie sheet and bake it for a few minutes until browned.
I served the Black Bean Soup with my favorite cornbread from La Dolce Vegan-Wolffie's "Buttermilk" Cornbread.
These 'lovely' looking things were supposed to be whoopie pies. It was my hubby's birthday the middle of October and he loves German Chocolate cake. I had great success with my last whoopie pies so I thought I would try another recipe from Betty Goes Vegan. I followed the recipe exactly and this is what I got! I kept trying to bake them a little longer and then they just turned out chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside and the whoopie just turned to whoops! I had already made the Coconut Pecan Frosting (which was excellent) so I just filled the 'Whoops' Pies with it. They ended up tasting really good but the longer they sat the more greasy and soggy they became. So obviously, the recipe has one or two typos in it!
By this time my anxiety, OCD, bipolar rollercoaster is starting to rise so my cooking and eating goes downhill from there. I made easy meals with Gardein Chik'n Scallopini, baked potatoes and a veg; tostadas; spaghetti and veggie meatballs; supplemented by too many fast food pizzas, subway sandwiches, taco bell, and cheese quesadillas with a few meat tacos thrown in for good measure. Another comforting carb-satisfying meal I make alot is Spinach Artichoke Pasta. I never seem to take a picture after I make it. I'm too ready to dive in and eat it all up! You can find the recipe for it here.
My daughter found this recipe using spaghetti squash. It was so easy to make using roma tomatoes, basil, garlic, spinach olive oil, salt & pepper; I used Daiya mozzarella for the cheese. For so few ingredients it tasted delicious and satisfying (no heavy carbs!) You can find the recipe here.
I served the Spaghetti Squash Caprese Bake with my favorite Dijon Mustard Brussels Sprouts from La Dolce Vegan.
Last but not least, this super simple "open a can and dump together" meal!
Fireplace Chili Mac from Kathy Hester. What a perfectly yummy, carb craving no thinking required meal. I'm going to take this recipe with me to our cabin in Sedona. So easy!
Now that I've had an extended posting therapy session I feel so much better. Still dizzy and nauseous but I feel like I got something accomplished! Hmmm, what to make for supper now?!
