Food, glorious food!

Oh man, it is so good to be back among the normal people again, eating!!

At nearly 16 weeks, I still feel nauseated in the morning, and am still keeping those crackers near the bed for a little munch just before getting up. But I feel like a different person from just a couple weeks ago.

Last night I made a cauliflower and mushroom potpie, one of my favorites from Veganomicon. So yummy- it has tons of veggies and spices, and is low in salt. I highly recommend this book to anyone vegan, veg or otherwise looking to eat healthy, delicious, comforting meals (and desserts!).

Today I am going to make spring rolls and peanut sauce. I make mine with tofu (browned in the skillet in a little olive oil), romaine, cucumbers, carrots, scallions, avocado and rice stick noodles. My peanut sauce changes each time, but has these basic ingredients:

  • crunchy peanut butter
  • tamari
  • toasted sesame oil
  • German mustard
  • ginger (I use the powder)
  • rice wine vinegar
  • red chili paste or flakes
  • warm water
  • agave nectar
  • hoison sauce

Here is a very similar recipe from Whole Foods.

The end result? Noms.
