I’m loving our October VegCookbook, Chloe’s Kitchen, so far. Howabout you?
I’ve tried four dishes. The Avocado Toast was crazy simple and crazy delish. Who would think to put olive oil, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and avocado on toast? YUM!
The penne was good, but a little tart, for my taste. It needed a little sprinkling of sweetener. We had enough sauce and penne for leftovers, so on Sunday night I added sauteed peppers and an onion to the sauce, which sweetened it up.
I’ve made Chloe’s Favorite Five-Minute Salad twice. I wouldn’t say it takes five minutes, but it is quick, especially the dressing, which is just some rice vinegar, salt, pepper, and a mashed up avocado. The first one I made was better than the first. For some reason, my second try was kind of bitter. I’m not sure if it was the tomatoes ( I used cherry tomatoes the second time, and a whole tomato the first time), too many scallions, or the lettuce (I used a head of lettuce the first time, and a baby romaine mix the second time).
My favorite recipe, not surprisingly, was the Best Garlic Bread in the World. It has quite a bit of nutritional yeast on it, which I thought was yummy, but is something to keep in mind when serving it to folks unfamiliar with that distinctive flavor.
What did you VegCook this week?
