Cabbage and Onion Pierogies, Potato and Smoked Mushroom Pierogies, Roasted Pear and Brussels Sprouts Salad, Flaky Dinner Biscuits, Baklava

Dinner 12/24

Cabbage and Onion Pierogies

Potato and Smoked Mushroom Pierogies

Roasted Pear and Brussels Sprouts Salad

Flaky Dinner Biscuits



It's time for our annual family holiday dinner, and as always we made two kinds of pierogies -- cabbage/onion and potato/smoked mushroom served along side a Roasted Pear and Brussels Sprouts salad...

...along with these Einkorn flour flaky biscuits. I didn't want to put them on the plate with Pierogi shot, so you can see the mushroom design on the dinner plate.

For dessert, Liz made her family recipe for Baklava.

That'll do it for 2013, see you next year!

Chanterelle Mushroom Banh Mi

Dinner 12/22

Chanterelle Mushroom Banh Mi

Post-Holiday Party meals are always simple, but these Banh Mi were awesome -- sauteed chanterelles with crisp red onion, cucumber, radishes and cilantro with Vegenaise and Sriracha on a bun that Liz made earlier in the week for just this occasion -- always thinking ahead! ;)

Holiday Party XVII

Holiday Party XVII 12/21

They Came, They Saw, They Ate.

The 17th annual Holiday Party was another fun blowout, with 50 or so friends stopping by for tasty vegan food. Both kids had a large contingent of friends this year, which added to the amount of food prepared for our (secret) vegan outreach project ;)

Here's some of the dishes we served...

Stuffed Mushrooms

Olive & Sun-Dried Tomato Palmiers

Paella with Green Beans and Pecan-Smoked Tofu

Pasta Salad with Broccoli

Of course, the Triple Tofu Salad Sandwich Tower has to be included.

6:30pm: The calm before the storm at the Table...

...and in the kitchen.

also made, but not shown, BBQ Lollipops, Bourguignon, Cassoulet, Tapenade, Hummus (as required by law at any gathering of vegans) and Artichoke Dip
