Yesterday I splurged on two new vegan cookbooks: Vegan With a Vengeance, and Vegan Planet. I already have Veganomicon, so I guess I'm a little out of order just getting VWAV now, but I couldn't resist any longer. I initially walked into the bookstore looking for Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, but alas, it was nowhere to be found. I've had a raging sweet tooth lately, so I'd love to get my hands on that book at some point. These two books are awesome, though! So many great recipes that I can't wait to try! Hooray!
One recipe in particular that I'm dying to try is from Vegan Planet: a lentils and rice dish with crispy shallots on top. We had this at a local mediterranean restaurant several weeks ago, and absolutely loved it, so I was excited to see it in Vegan Planet.
Here is my menu plan for the week:
Sunday - Gnocchi with herb sauce, spinach salad, french bread
Monday - night class, so we will forage (as much as I love this class, I will be so glad when it's over. I hate having class in the evening!)
Tuesday - Middle Eastern lentils and rice with caramelized shallots
Wednesday - Minestrone soup, french bread
Thursday - Leftovers, apple crisp
Friday - Dinner out with Brad's family before he goes to his drill weekend
Saturday - Mac & "cheese", broccoli
