For those food lovers among my readers, or those who wonder what it is that vegans can eat, I will describe my dinner today, as I am very proud of it.
I knew I had to do pasta to use up the tomato sauce that had been opened a while ago, so I put it in a pot to heat it up. Then I looked at the produce I got at the farmers' market today (leeks, scallions, collard greens, carrots) and decided to use the carrot tops (the green stuff). So I put that in the tomato sauce.
Then for the pasta I found the spinach linguini and broke it all in half (because I hate long pasta). I diced some scallions and cooked them in oil, adding some dried parsley at the last minute. Then I filled the pot with water and added the pasta, along with half of a vegan bouillon cube.
To finish it off, I cut up some vegan sausage and put it in the tomato sauce (with now well-cooked carrot greens) to heat up. I added some spinach to the pasta while I waited for the water to boil out. I melted some vegan butter on the dish I was going to use and then stuck it back in the refrigerator, so it was ready when the pasta was done. The sauce went in a separate bowl because it was more like a stew.
For dessert I had some raspberry sorbet with wild blueberries I picked over the weekend...which is a good segway into that upcoming post about what I did over the weekend (hint: it involves wild blueberry-picking). There's also that post about linguistics research I need to do, and the one about all the shops and museums I've been to.
So, stay tuned...
