I finally buckled down and cooked again. It'll be nice to start school, just so I can get back to my regular routines of cooking and exercise.
From Looneyspoons I made the "Canajun" rice and beans, a mix between Canadian and Cajun flavours. I'm not posting the recipe because I didn't really need to change any of the ingredients, it was in the vegetarian section. I really like this dish, there's some spice but not too much.
From Cooking for the Rushed, I made the chicken pot pie. I adapted it by using fake PC chicken strips, Earth Balance and soymilk, and instead of using prepared Pillsbury biscuits, I made mine from scratch, using the baking powder biscuits from La Dolce Vegan. This dish is amazing!! I love the idea of placing biscuits on top of the pie, instead of spreading a crust. And the biscuits are phenomenal!
I had a craving for fried foods last night after work, so I decided to try my hand at cheesesticks. They actually turned out pretty good. I cut up Follow Your Heart Mozza cheese into mini sticks, and then dipped them in a flour/arrowroot mix, an egg replacer/water mix and then a breadcrumbs/ Italian seasoning mix....and then redid that. I fried them in oil for about 30 seconds and then sprinkled them with a bit of salt and parmesan. They really hit the spot! I want to refine the seasoning a bit, but they're a great occasional snack.
Back to school Tuesday, better hit the mall for some school supplies.
