V&V What's for dinner, January-February 2013

Hi all!! I think our old thread was getting a little long, so I'm starting a new one.
A thoughtful friend gifted me Ottolenghi's Plenty for Christmas, and I have been cooking recipes from it here and there. Last night, I made Cabbage rolls and Stuffed zucchini, as well as the Kohlrabi and Cabbage Salad. Last week, I made the fried lima beans with sorrel. I believe you can find most of these online, but I recommend buying the book. I've been reading it constantly.
All have been unusual and lovely and combinations I would never come up with myself. A great book if you are looking to get out of a cooking rut!
A few mods. Mainly I wanted a lower-cal alternative to the cashew cream, so I pureed a package of silken tofu with a bulb of roasted garlic (peeled, obviously) and used that instead. Also used white beans instead of chickpeas, wild rice and spinach as the leafy green.
Garbanzos and sauteed onions in balsamic-soy sauce over wilted spinach.
Last night was sweet peppers & broccoli in peanut sauce on jasmine rice.
