This was a quick besan scallion pancake stuffed with spinach, onions and sesame seeds. It was totally delicious. The pancake was made from leftover soba noodle, tofu and veggie soup blended in my vita mix along with fresh cilantro, garlic, besan flour and a tiny bit of baking soda. No pic of the original dish because I have been to tired and busy to take pics.
I have barely had time to take pics this last week. Life is just nuts. I've actually been cooking and we've been enjoying meals, but I don't have the energy to take the pics and blog. Hopefully, I can remedy this soon. This coming week will be full. I am teaching a cooking class Tuesday night. It's a Tofu class. I usually do 5 dishes with enough leftovers for people to take home. I'm still debating on the menu. I guess it depends on how tired I am. I have to work that morning super early and will have put in a 10 hour day before I even start teaching. I'm a bit overwhelmed.
Also, my personal life is changing a lot.
I am moving out of my house into my own apartment. My marriage has been over for a long time and I am starting over. This will happen after the 1st of November. I sign all of the paperwork tomorrow for my new place. What a difference it will be. I will be 200 feet from the beach, though... so expect a lot of pics on my photography blog!
Black bean and veggie burrito with a cabbage and spinch salad and guacamole. The beans were pressure cooked and tossed with fresh salsa. The veggies were sauted. The cabbage was marinated in lime juice, garlic and chiles. The burrito was pan fried in my beloved cast iron with olive oil cooking spray.
This morning, I decided to make some chipotle citrus spiced black eyed peas to take for luch this week (I have been packing my laptop lunches, but haven't had the gumption to photograph them before 6am).. I decided the beans would be better served turned into veggie burgers. I mixed them with tvp, flax and breadcrumbs; froze half the mixture and dry fried 14 burgers in my cast iron. Also, I have some leftover spinach and carrot noodles from today's lunch.
