Split-Pea Soup with Seitan Sausages
Parsnips St. Jacques
(from Urban Vegan)
Chaussons aux pommes
Winter and Split-Pea Soup is a timely match given all the snow we've had here lately. The pressure cooker took care of the green split peas which was added to sauteed onion, garlic, celery, diced carrots & parsnips. The soup was topped with fried seitan mini-sausages (from the earlier batch).
For a side dish, we made a batch of this wonderful parsnip dish from Urban Vegan -- Wait, what? You don't own this book yet? Go get it now!
For dessert Liz whipped up a quick batch of chaussons aux pommes (French apple turnovers) using leftover puff pastry and Gala apples that were hiding in the back of the fridge. Sub out earth balance & Liz used a tiny amount of a flour & water mix in place of the eggwash.
I'd eat that -- oh, wait, I did ;)
