Cook: Jen G.
Menu: Curried Cauliflower Soup with Tamarind Quinoa
Jen G. here! I was so lucky to get two fabulous cookbooks for the holidays, Color Me Vegan and Appetite for Reduction. In deference to a mealshare member's request to stick more closely to an Eat to Live-style diet, I wanted to make something extra-specially healthy and, well, delicious...so I cracked the spines of the two books and did some perusing.
The soup (from Color Me Vegan) was straightforward to prepare and delicious but once pureed according to directions it was quite thin. The quinoa (from Appetite for Reduction) added a fantastic flavor and excellent mouthfeel.
The non-Eat to Live-ers got a chunk of seemingly lackluster (I didn't eat it myself) banana bread.
