Baked Sweet Potato Hash Browns

Lately, I've been eating some real simple ass meals. This is the exact reason I haven't been posting any new recipes. Y'all don't need me to share 40 different ways to air fry your tofu and steam some broccoli, now do you? Didn't think so.

The holiday season is upon us. For a lot of folks this means lots of get-togethers, eating out, alcohol, parties, shopping, brunches (hopefully), and not a lot of time to take care of your house and yourself. I mean it takes a lot of convincing to get me to go grocery shopping and honestly it's the absolute last thing I want to do when I've worked all day, shopped, wrapped, and office partied. So it often gets put all the way off and so does laundry, sweeping, etc. 
Anyway, this is a great little brunch potluck bring-along for those of us who need to pinch pennies and schedule time to take a shower or dust the living room. This morning me and my long ass to-do list tossed these ingredients together and popped it in the oven…

Green Tomato Curry

There's a big long explanation on my previous post about why y'all are gonna be flooded with green tomato recipes for the next few days and I'm not really in the mood to rehash the whole thing; so if you're curious about the "why" behind this click here. Otherwise welcome to another in a long series of green tomato posts.

This curry is pretty much the perfect weeknight meal for the busy family. It's cozy, tasty, quick to throw together, and uses up those little suckers you've just pulled from your garden. Did I mention that it's tasty? Oh yeah I already said that. My bad.

Green Tomato Gratin

Y'all! Vegan MoFo was so fun this year. I took a few days off after the month long post-a-thon and now I'm back. You can expect a new recipe at least once a week until MoFo 2019.

During my blog break post-MoFo, my band played some out of town shows (which is why I missed the last few daily prompts). After driving through the night to get back to work the next day, we slept for a couple of days and 4 days later, we played another show this time in our home city (don't worry this totally ties into the recipe below but I hate long monologues before recipes so it's also a short story).  My friend Chance showed up at our recently rested home turf show with like 15 pounds of green tomatoes. This has got to be my fave time of year. It's that time of year when all my friends are pulling their gardens and don't know what to do with all those green delicious morsels.

I know what you're thinking: "just google it." Great idea but have you actually googled &qu…

Roasted Broccoli Radish Salad

I'm that annoying person who always brings veggies to the potluck. Mainly because vegan potlucks are usually filled with vegan junk food and non-vegan potlucks usually don't have anything I can eat and honestly I can't consider something a meal if my plate isn't mainly greens. I'm not going to lie to you though I do love me some vegan junk food. I just love it more if there is nice big salad accompanying it.

This is one of my fave flavor blasters to bring to the potluck zone. 

Roasted Broccoli Radish Salad 3 heads of broccoli, broken down into florets 2 bunches of radishes, quartered 1 c grapes 1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced juice from one big ass lemon 2 tbsp rice vinegar 2 garlic cloves 1 tsp stone ground mustard 1/4 olive oil 2 tbsp minced mint salt and pepper to taste Roast up that broccoli and radish at 400 until it's tender af.Mix together the lemon through salt and pepper and set aside. When the veggies are tender, toss them up with the remaining ingr…

Chickpea Gnocchi with Faux Pesto and Raspberry Sauce

Hello and welcome back to yet another Vegan MoFo post. This week is my fave so far because I live this week every week. I'm frugal AF and challenge myself daily to make meals out of nothing because I'm just not a big fan of the grocery store.

Today's prompt is Frugal, but Fancy. In keeping with my self imposed daily challenge, I created this entire dish from what I happened to have in my kitchen and some of the components were actually food gifts (my fave kind of gift btw) from my friends and family. Now that's frugal.

Gnocchi is almost always fancy especially when it's homemade. This gnocchi is gluten free and is served with my cheap version of pesto (pestfaux?) and my fave savory raspberry sauce. Also I made this for breakfast today. What a fancy Saturday morning.

Homemade GF Gnocchi 8 oz of potatoes, skinned boiled mashed and cooled
1 c chickpea flour
1/4 c nutritional yeast
1 garlic clove, minced
Mix all the ingredients together to form a dough ball. Quar…

Chameleon Chickpeas

No there's no chameleon in this recipe. You know better than that.

I call this dish Chameleon Chickpeas because it can disguise itself for any occasion all year round.  Did you party too hard last night and forget to make something for your vegan brunch potluck this morning? This shit is done in 30 minutes and when you serve it on a baguette it's the perfect brunch. Did you totally space that you invited a bunch of friends over for dinner but don't actually have any money in your bank account (that's me)? Don't worry this dish serves 6 people and checks in at a cool $.85 per serving.

I call them Chameleon Chickpeas because even though they are quick to make, the flavors mingle so well that you'd swear someone was attached to their stove top for 12 hours putting it together. I call them Chameleon Chickpeas because the rich flavors are actually cheap as hell and guests would never know it. I call them Chameleon Chickpeas because this dish works for breakfast, lun…

Leftover Curry Burgers

Ok. I accidentally took the last two days off from posting on this blog but that doesn't mean I was skipping out on Vegan MoFo. If you run on over to my IG account you'll see I was participating over there. Mainly because Monday, September 17th, my cool ass band, Sun Blood Stories, had a cool ass show with another cool ass band, OHMME. Luckily, the prompt was Cheap Sweets and earlier this month I went to my fave restaurant, Mai Thai, and the owner gifted my family a beautiful (and FREE) Mango Sticky Rice (and what's cheaper than free, amiright?). I feel like I nailed it.

Yesterday, the MoFo prompt was to make a dish with the intention of using the leftovers to create a dish the next day. Well, last night my amazing husband, Ben, made a delish curry for dinner. If you've ever made curry at home you know that literally every single time you make curry you've got leftovers for days and after awhile I can totes see folks getting bored of eating curry for a week in orde…
