Made this pizza for myself tonight after a pretty rough day. I used Trader Joe's vegan mozzarella which is interesting. It got sooo liquidy when it melted. It was sloshing out the sides of the pizza as I cut into it with a pizza wheel. Wacky. I like the taste. It has a very cheesy salty flavor. Pizza from school cafeteria comes to mind. It's not bad at all. Quite good actually but way too liquidy when hot out of the oven. I didn't give it a chance to cool so maybe if I had, it would have firmed up a bit. I'll see tomorrow as I have stored the leftovers for lunch. So far, Follow Your Heart is tops as far as vegan cheese goes.

Stir the cashew sauce into the leeks and spinach. It'll be very thick. At this point you can add some unsweetened soy or almond milk to thin it out, or even hot water. Add the 1/4 cup of vegan cheese. Season with salt, pepper, a squeeze of lemon, red pepper flakes.

I opened up RIVER COTTAGE VEG today and picked out the chili recipe because I had similar ingredients and it sounded like it would be good with baked potatoes and corn tortillas. Mmmm! The recipe calls for pinto beans and zucchini which I substituted kidney beans and carrot. It came out delicious. First time I've ever added red wine to chili. I added a bit of chili powder because I felt like it needed it.
And because I can't live without cake, I made a fat free cake which I got from The Fat Free Vegan blog. I've been making so much cake for the past few weeks/months that my dresses are fitting kind of tight lately! I've made this recipe probably 8 years ago when I first went vegan. It uses pineapple and apple sauce for the fat and has much less sugar than a normal cake. It was good then and it's good now. It's got a 'chewier' consistency than normal cake (probably because I used tapioca flour for the egg replacer) but it is a nice sweet treat without the guilt!

Armenian Lentil Soup recipe from The Happy Pear cookbook. It's got red lentils, potato, carrot, swede (my addition, it called for celeriac which I didn't have) onion and dried apricots. It's lovely and smooth after it gets blitzed in the blender. Very tasty!

Went to Tender Greens today to celebrate our 3 day weekend. Haven't been here in years which is sad because their food is very good!

Made a perfect veggie soup and dumplings today. I've been out of sorts lately and needed some comfort food. The soup is just my "fricot" recipe which I omitted tofu and added broccoli. I love dumplings in a soup!
