{Kale} Saag Paneer

So remember when I told you about the Harvest Party Fresh Feast a couple of posts ago? Well this is one of the dishes from that night. Please forgive the poor lighting - there were two bottles of wine and lots of cooking and we just couldn't get it all done before the sun went to bed.

This dish was all PaleoChick. All I did was write down what she did and taste test for her. DAMN! I sure did taste test. It taste tested the shit out of this dish. I don't even know if anyone else even got any.

Oh well. I asked her to do a guest post and she agreed but she's super busy being a paleontologist, a college professor, and an all around bad ass; so here's a link to her previous guest post

P.s. The kale, onion, and garlic were from her garden.

2 tbsp coconut oil
12 oz tofu, cubed
2 tbsp tandoori seasoning
2 bunches of kale, de-stemmed and chopped
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 can coconut milk
2 tbsp cashew cream sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Heat your coconut oil until it's all melted. Toss your tofu in tandoori seasoning and get it in that hot skillet. Let it cook until it's all golden. Remove from skillet and set aside. 
  2. Start cooking your onion and garlic in that ex-tofu skillet. When the onions start to get translucent add in your kale and let that start cooking down. When the kale cooks down low enough to add in the remaining ingredients do so - except hold on to the water. Only add water if the cream isn't creamy enough. Don't forget about your tofu either. Let that all cook together. 
  3. Fall in love with the flavor.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
