I've got Spinach Calzones in the oven. They smell delicious! I took a package of Trader Joe's whole wheat pizza dough and divided it in half, and stuffed them with chopped squeezed frozen spinach, mozzarella soy cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and black olives.

They should be filling enough so I didn't make any side dishes.

The calzones sound excellent! And super easy...my fave!

Thanks to my awesome neighbor, we had pistachio basil pesto with sundried tomatoes and artichokes over fuselli pasta. Delicious!

Yum! I tried making something similar last month (with TJ's WW pizza crust), but I used WAY too much crust per calzone, so they were really heavy. I'll have to try again.

They came out really well. What I did was I divided the dough in half and rolled out each piece pretty thin (1/4 inch thick), about the size of a round small to medium pizza. Then I spread the whole thing with pizza sauce but just put the toppings on the bottom half. That makes it easy to just fold it in half and then seal the edges with the tines of a fork. It makes 2 large calzones.

I used to make them all the time when I was eating cheese, but this is the first time I made it with soy cheese. It was still delicious.

When I did calzones the last time, I did a bunch of small ones. I had a feeling that that was my problem. I've done big ones before with little problem. I'll try big ones next time. Thanks!

What brand of soy cheese did you use? This is one area that I have been afraid to explore due to fear of disappointment.

I used the mozzarella kind from Trader Joe's that is in a block. (I grated it). It contains casein, so not totally vegan, but I am a bad vegan.

Last night turtle made this amazing millet loaf, served with spicy spinach and whole grain toast. SO good.

Update on the masaman: She's still perfecting the recipe, but I'll share it with you once she's got it down.

Wednesday night we had a big salad with spinach, avocados, heirlooms , tempeh (soaked in wine then baked), cajun seasoned cashews, peppers, and we used salsa as the dressing.

Last night we had sexy potatoes again with a side of orzo mixed with avocados, salsa and roasted garlic. I also made a vegan strawberry rubharb pie.

Thursday night we had Shepherd's pie using morningstar crumbles, topped with garlic mashed potatoes.

Friday was Quorn chick nuggets, Alexia fries and apples.

Last night was homemade mac and cheese- the sauce was kind of half dairy cheese and half nutritional yeast. Really good! Served with roasted asparagus, sourdough bread, and salad.

Happy Mother's Day!!

I haven't been cooking a lot. Last night we went to El Torito's and I had the veggie fajitas. Yum! I had my leftovers for lunch today.

Tonight I made a lovely ceasarish salad with quorn bits, and super sweet pots, smashed. Totally filling and yummy! The kids really gobbled, I guess they WERE hungry!

Monday: I think we'll do a tempeh thing with chips .
Tues: Chocolate chili and baked potatoes
Wed: Something delicious with avocados, maybe some pasta.
Thurs: unsure...
Fri: Maybe we'll try the calzones! Those sound awesome.

post #77 of 223
There must be something chili in the air. We've got lentil chili planned for tonight.

We're having spring asparagus minestrone with crusty bread :-). First minestrone recipe I've ever seen that doesn't include tomatoes. But, it looks and smells wonderful!
post #79 of 223
Yum- that asparagus minestrone sounds great. Can you share the recipe?

Tonight we'll either have peanut butter pasta with peas (thank you to someone on this thread for the recipe!) or butternut squash ravioli from the freezer. And tonight I'll prep African Style Sweet Potato Stew to put in the slow cooker tomorrow morning. Yum!
