clockwise: warm butternut and chickpea salad | butternut stew | sweet potato oven fries | guacamole | vegan lasagna | polenta pizza | fall foliage lemon grass soup | no bake cookies | white bean and vegetable stew
man, i always get the stomach growls when i write these posts. is it wrong to crave lasagna first thing in the morning? i have to admit that i’m a creature of habit. i’ll find a recipe and just make it over and over again (as i’m sure you’ve noticed!). i always try to throw in a few newbies though. this week i cooked with lemongrass for the very first time and hope to do so more and more, it’s so yummy! i also discovered a new favorite recipe- this scrummy warm butternut squash and chickpea salad (thanks for the recommendation, jessica!).
monday: polenta pizza topped with seasonal veggies
tuesday: butternut stew served with sweet potato oven fries and homemade guacamole
wednesday: fall foliage lemon grass soup (left out the rutabaga and cilantro and subbed with potatoes and parsley)
thursday: white bean and vegetable stew served with a warm butternut and chickpea salad
friday: vegan lasagna with basil cashew cheez and no bake cookies for dessert :)
