Back to the round up of Vegan Planet recipes... I still have so many more photos to post as well! Let's see what I have been cooking up...
Layered Polenta-Chili Casserole is a delicious way to use up some leftover chili. I had leftovers from one of the VP chili recipes - but I don't remember which one! The recipe called for a 9x13 inch baking dish but I found that this was too big for the ingredients called for so I used a smaller pan. It is delicious layer of polenta with a layer of chili and topped off with melted Cheezly - yummy!
Tempeh adds delicious protein to this Pappardelle Cacciatore - nom nom nom! I couldn't find any pappardelle pasta that didn't contain eggs, so I used my favourite spinach fettuccine.
This is ridiculously good! It is Grilled Portobellos with Rosemary-Roasted Vegetables. A simple combination of red onion, zucchini and tomato (I left out the capsicum) roasted and piled on top of a grilled portobello (which I grilled in our George Foreman grill). I served it with Wild Rice Pilaf from The Complete Vegan Cookbook and a green salad. VP suggests a variation where you add a grilled veggie burger on top of the mushrooms and under the vegetables for a more substantial entree. To be honest, I think this would really take away from the glorious fresh flavours, and I love it just as it is!
Red Bean Cakes with Creamy Coconut Sauce are a pretty dinner. The red bean cakes are so amazingly tasty and would be great as burgers made in their own right! The coconut sauce is nice but a bit bland. I served it with some brown rice and some sauteed broccolini - I think a nice salty vegetable side definitely picks up the whole experience.
Tempeh Goulash is full of fermented goodness - tempeh and sauerkraut... delicious! It has a very interesting flavour, but it is damn tasty!

Sahara loves a really intense head rub, here she is with my mother's hands encircled around her face giving her a nice scratch/rub/pat. Her little face is all squinched up in happiness. She was purring super loudly with her rattle purr!
