V&V What's for Dinner? - Spring!

Thought I'd start a new thread now that it's April. What have you all been eating?

Recently, I cooked Stir-Fried Oyster and Shitake Mushrooms and Twice-cooked Chard from Fuchsia Dunlop's Every Grain of Rice. Enjoyed both, especially the mushrooms. Served with jasmine rice.


Steamed Artichokes with Melted Butter, Twice Baked Potatoes, and Buffalo Tempeh.

How about ya'll?

    Ideas in Food omelet soufflé and
    butter lettuce/frisee salad with April Bloomfield's lemon caper sauce, which was a little too strong for such a simple salad

    I had mild technical difficulties with the omelet, but it was kinda awesome.

      We are having the cottage cheese rhubarb omelet from Bittman's HCEV for a late lunch. I've never made other fruit omelets, but that one is a winner.

    2. Corn, tomatillo, & avocado salad with grilled zucchini & grilled pita (first grillin' of the year!)
      Panzanella (bread salad with tomatoes, olives, etc)
      Pasta with cabbage, carrots, soy sauce & sesame oil

      1. Tonight it's TLTs (tempeh bacon, lettuce, tomato) for the main, and an improvised side salad of edamame, corn, and roasted zucchini.

        1. moroccan chicpea and barley salad with apricots and pistachios.

          1. World curry night.

            Trinidad style curried mango from Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian, tamarind flavoured chick peas (Bengali style) from Bharti Kirchner's Health Cuisine of India, and a quick mushroom pilao inspired by Gurpareet Bain's Indian Superfood.
