I went out Monday night after work for a celebration at a pub. It was a blast, of course, but I got home much too late to make my Vegan Tuesday food. Luckily, the recipe I chose to make this week was very quick and easy. It’s from the March 2009 issue of Gourmet magazine–Tomatoey Spiced Chickpeas.
I made it before I went to work on Tuesday and packed it up for lunch and then had it again for dinner. I served it with bulgur because it takes no time to make. Just pour boiling water and let sit. I also roasted some asparagus and cashews, which lately seems to be my go-to veggie side. YUM. Once again, all before work and I wasn’t late.
For dessert I made the Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies out of Veganomicon. Although this recipe is also quick and easy, I baked them earlier in the week. I can’t make two quick and easy recipes before work and still make it on time. 😛 I subbed 1/2 cup of the oatmeal with 9-grain cereal and 1/2 cup of the raisins with dried cranberries. Very delicious.
