Things I Ate This Past Week (Mixed in with Things I Did Not Eat)

  • Orange Feces

  • (Picture not available, thank god.)

  • E's Tofu Loaf from Cooking with PETA

    (along with some very sexy-looking snap-peas and 'shrooms--just look at how they glisten)

  • Mothra

  • Leslie's Chickpea and Red Lentil Soup

    • 1/2c green peppers, diced

    • 1/2 medium onion, diced

    • 3 carrots, sliced and peeled

    • 1c veggie broth

    • 2c water

    • 1 15oz can chickpeas

    • 14oz can diced fire roasted tomatos

    • 1c red lentils, rinsed and drained

    • 1t salt

    • few dashes black pepper

    • 1/2t tumeric

    • 2 cloves garlic, minced

    • 1T olive oil

    In a 3 quart stockpot, saute onions and carrots in olive oil until onions are translucent. Add garlic and saute for a few minutes longer. Add the rest of the ingredients and cover. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat to simmer. Simmer for about 30 minutes, or until lentils are soft and soup has thickened. Blend 1/2 the soup with an immersion blender or take 1/2 the soup in batches and carefully blend in a blender or food processor. Enjoy as a soup/stew or serve over a grain. Makes almost 3 quarts.

  • A Sun-Loving Zooey

  • Chickpea Broccoli Casserole from Vegan with a Vengeance

  • (Please forgive me--I've stolen this pic from someone else's page as I've continuously forgotten to take pics of the damn casserole all week. Opinion of said casserole: yummy (and surprisingly cheesy-tasting) for being so simple, though a bit too oniony for my taste. Next time I'm going with half the amount.)

  • The Franster

  • Soylent Green

  • (Because apparently, it's made of people.)
