What's for dinner? Winter thread - Page 2

post #21 of 105

Tonight we are going to have mushroom stew (think beef stew without meat...just lots of yummy mushrooms in a rich tomatoey sauce) over quinoa.

Ooh, I need to make a creamy vegan soup, it's been a while. I've been eating a lot of soup lately but the canned variety, lol. I've also been making my ziti pasta with pink saucea lot, with almond cream.

I needed this thread. I am getting bored with our standbys. Tonight I made carrot soup, which is my son's favorite. It's lovely to cook something that he'll actually eat. :) The soup is a bunch of carrots, like 2 potatoes, and onions and garlic, today I added celery. Just add water or stock and cook it til they are soft and then blend it up good with some soy milk (you may need to remove some of the broth so it doesn't get too thin) and some raw cashews, if you have them, which I almost never do.

We had potato leek soup for lunch with fresh green beans, then veggie pizza with tofu ricotta and a chopped salad for dinner.  I also made herb scalloped potatoes, homemade seitan, and tahini miso dressing today.  I wanted to cook up a bunch of stuff for the week :-)  Tomorrow I am making a big batch of rice and some chili.  Then we'll be set for a few days :-)

Do you have a recipe for this.  Right now beef stew is sounding wonderful to me--I think it has to do with the warm comfort food idea.  I would love something that I could make that would work with my new way of eating and still cover that need for comfort food.

I'm another one who's going to give this recipe a try.  Looks and sounds very yummy!

 

We have an early dinner tonight due to swimming lessons and I don't have a clue what I'm going to make.  I have a major toothache and am not hungry which makes it even more difficult.  Ds1 just asked "what's for dinner mom?"  Sigh....probably something easy like pancakes or french toast.

 

Other dinners this week will be chickpea burgers, a curry lentil, spinach dish and pasta with cashew "cheese" sauce.

post #31 of 105

That recipe looks so yummy! I'm def making it this week!

 

I made lentil soup w/dumplings last night. Tonight I made chickpea cutlets with a white gravy (I think it tastes like chicken friend steak w/the gravy) and brocolli.

Aw man, I slipped again with all this meal planning!..innocent.gif What's wrong with me! LOL

I've made a lot of soups lately due to the cooler weather now also here in Sicily..

 

I've recently gotten a few new cookbooks so I plan on taking 1 per week and planning menus from it... I just need to finally DO it! winky.gif

You're in Sicily? I expect some awesome recipes from you, fitmommy!

 

I think tonight will either be a huge salad or pasta with some sauteed veggies on top. I have acupuncture tonight so I like to make something easy so I can run out the door and go.

My little has pneumonia and isn't really eating at the moment...unless you count 9 bunny crackers and a handful of grapes and 2 sips of kefir.  Soooo, with DW working late tonight and just me to feed (I'll offer, but I'm guessing that nursing is about all he'll do this evening) I plan on ordering take out.  Khao Soi, a spicy Thai curry noodle soup with tofu and mustard greens!  Woo-hoo!  I plan on scaring away the germs with spicy food!

LOL Cindy,

I'll see what I can do! I should use Donna Klein's Vegan Italiano more often anyway! winky.gif

 

Today we're having Bountiful Burritos with refried beans that I've made in the crock pot (Kathy Hester's recipe from her blog).

 

post #36 of 105

So today I spent a few hours washing and chopping everything in sight- peeling garlic, chopping onions and mushroooms, washing and prepping spinach, kale, and lettuce, shredding cabbage and carrots, peeling and cubing winter squash, chopping broccoli, making roasted garlic, carmelized onions, quinoa, and lemon-shallot salad dressing, prepping 2 dozen balls of frozen cookie dough for desserts.

 

Now for dinners-

 

Pumpkin curry and basmati rice

White bean and kale soup

Black bean tacos with cubed roasted squash, avocado and shredded cabbage

Edamame lo mein

MuShu veggies (oops, forgot hoisin sauce)

Baked potatos and broccoli

Catnip: Your menu sounds divine! I may have to copy a bunch of it! LOL. I hate menu planning.

 

Today was my daughter's 3rd b-day. We bbq veggie burgers and had fruit salad. That was for lunch. No idea what will be for dinner though!

Today was "shocking pasta" from the passionate vegetarian cookbook.  Beet sauce (Roasted beets pureed with roasted garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil) with farfalle pasta.  

 

Tomorrow night will be red peppers stuffed with quinoa, mushrooms and blackbeans

Subbing. I am really struggling with meal planning lately. I am trying hard to be vegan but I also need to be GF as well. And I am SO sick of eating beans and lentils. irked.gif
