You’re all still VegCooking like crazy through our July VegCookbook, Eat, Drink and Be Vegan, by Dreena Burton. I’m loving all of your photos and comments, especially on Instagram, where folks are using the hashtag #vegcookbookclub.

Last week, I made the “Hide the Lentils” Tomato Sauce, which was very tasty. I forgot to take a photo at dinner time, so this snap is of my taking the leftovers to work for lunch. When I make this again, I’ll add some olives and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to give it some zing.

I also made the Drink Your Greens  Smoothie, which was super yummy. I just used a regular blender, not a Vitamix. It took awhile to puree the frozen bananas and the kale, but it happened eventually.

  1. I don’t have much luck blending kale into smoothies with my blender! After a minute or two, it smells like rubber and I feel it’s overheating, like if the engine of too powerful for the rest.

    I really like that tomato sauce. I should make it again when I don’t know how it put more lentils into my diet.

    • Hi Babette,

      I’ve finally figured out how to blend greens into a smoothie with a blender: slowly. I blend it on high for 20-30 seconds, and then turn it off, and let it rest for a minute. Then try it again. I also found that making sure you have enough liquid in the blender is key. I’ve had the burning blender problem too : (
