Curry Laksa from Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
Absolutely delicious. Spicy curry, spicy bok choy flavor, complex tasting (lime, agave!) but super easy broth.
Ginger Sesame Noodles from Quick Fix Vegetarian by Robin Robertson
Great ginger and sesame combo. My noodles fell apart a little (the recipe called for linguine but, um, no. I used Udon) but it was all still delicious. I also added more vegetables.
Almond Bulgur with black beans, tomatoes and kale from One Dish Vegan by Robin Robertson
This was so good, so cozy! I'd never cooked with almond butter before and it really added a creamy yummyness.
Manhattan Glam Chowder from Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
This one I was worried about liking while I was cooking it, but it was actually super tasty. That seaweed smell scared me a little, even though I know I love nori!
Cheezy quinoa and black bean stuffed poblano peppers in the Instant Pot
Our oven is broken and I had gotten the stuff to make stuffed peppers! I made this all up (I just looked at basic steam time and quinoa cooktimes on the internet) and I didn't know if I should count it as ~a recipe~ but Shaun said he thought it should count extra, haha. It was really delicious. Need to use the Instant Pot more!
Spicy Peanut Soup from One Dish Vegan by Robin Robertson
This was another one that I was nervous about liking. Shaun and I are both wary of peanut sauces. I'm always a little disappointed when I have one in a restaurant, but actually every time I have made one at home I've really liked it and I want to branch out and try recipes I passed over in my 30 before 30. This soup was SO GOOD. SO GOOD. I did fry the tofu because tofu just heated up in a broth is very boring. Also, my second time cooking with bok choy and I love it.
Hottie Black Eyed Peas with Kale - Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
It finally got kind of chilly out and I celebrated with black eyed peas. I've made a lot of variations on this sort of recipe and this was genuinely one of the best! Served it over brown rice.
Smoky Potato Chickpea Stew from here.
Super tasty recommendation from my friend Desiree. Definitely one to make again.
Classic Black Bean & Veggie Chili - Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
This was a very easy chili that I thought was almost as good as the one in Isa Does It! Shaun thought it was a little too limey and agave nectary so I'll probably use less of those when I make it again. It was so stuffed with veggies!
Yam & Black Bean Soup with Orange & Cilantro - Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
They were out of Cilantro which was a Real Tragedy and since I didn't seed the chilies (I almost never do) it was Almost Too Spicy and definitely too orangey (made a note to just use broth and no orange juice), it was still a solid base of a recipe and I expect it will be even better as leftovers of which there were a tonne.
