Beet and Carrot Salad + Sweet Noodle Kugel from Vegan Holiday Kitchen

First off, thanks for the 50 VegCookbook suggestions! I will announce our January 2013 VegCookbook soon. Last week, I tried two recipes from our December VegCookbook, Vegan Holiday Kitchen:

Beet & Carrot Salad from Vegan Holiday Kitchen

The Beet and Carrot Salad was soooo good I made it twice in one week.  I boiled the beets a little to make them sweeter, but you can keep them raw too. My only tip is to follow the directions, and only boil them until they are just tender. I boiled them too long yesterday, and it wasn’t quite as good.

The Sweet Noodle Kugel was also very tasty. It was so sweet, it felt like a dessert, but it’s listed as a side dish in the cookbook, so I felt justified eating it for dinner (:

  1. OK, I made the Hearty Lentil and Mushroom Shepherd’s Pie for Christmas Dinner and posted the pics on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/46393772@N00/sets/72157632345587881/with/8310897023/

    It was very tasty and pretty easy. I got to use my adorable red Le Creuset casserole too. I think using red lentils would have made the filling more attractive. Also, I find it interesting the recipe called for canned lentils. Yes, it did make it a touch more simple, but lentils are one of the easier legumes to cook (and that I have on hand), so it would have been good to have alternate instructions to incorporate fresh-cooked lentils too.

  2. I made Agave & Mustard-Glazed Green Beans; Chocolate-Orange Cake (in the shape of a Yule log); and Red Quinoa Pilaf with Kale & Corn.

  3. That beet and carrot salad sounds great. I also made hot spiced apple cider, dilled miso-tahini dip, and a pot pie that looked messy but turned out to be delicious.
