Lazy Saturday

I think today was the first Saturday since August that we didn't have something going on. No soccer games, no dinners to attend or host, no commitments whatsoever. It was wonderful.
The girls and I went to the asian market and stocked up on all kinds of good things. Tonight's menu ended up being:

Mushroom pecan burgers from Dreena Burton's "The Everyday Vegan." Hubby ate them with a very hot Indian pepper relish, I had some spicy mango chutney with mine and the kids ate them with sweet and sour sauce. We loved them. It was quite similar to the recipe I make for vegan kebab -really good.

Chinese long beans with cracked black pepper and -

Crackling Cauliflower from the Whole Foods Market cookbook. This recipe is a favorite of the whole family.

Everything got eaten - there were no leftovers :-( Everything was a definite keeper!

These look really mouth-watering! I don't have the WFM cookbook, but had borrowed it from the library once. Time to revisit it, I guess!

Wow, everything looks delicious! I have to dig out my WFM cookbook again. I'd forgotten some of the tasty recipes inside!

Thanks! I like the WFM cookbook because they have the vegan recipes marked as such - and usually the vegetarian ones are easy to veganize. It does have some errors though so it pays to be careful :-)

GREAT looking dishes! I've eyed that crackling cauliflower too at Whole Foods. I'm also very motivated to make a note of the burger recipe.
