Recipe Dump, Spring Break Edition
Spring break apparently now means, “let’s spend too much money at Seward Co-op all week! WOOO FOOD PARTY!”
Woo, falafel! Baked falafel! Which is much easier than fried falafel. This recipe is pretty genius because you throw a bunch of stuff in a food processor, shape it, and bake it. Loved the falafel. Loved the salad, which really doesn’t even need a recipe. Tahini sauce was meh, but this is because I still don’t really like tahini. Will I ever be converted? Grade: A-
I went to yoga on Thursday and it was chilly with impending snow so I spent the whole class thinking of soup. SOUP! Coconut water soup! Which is basically what this is: throw a couple of cans of coconut milk in a pot with some other stuff (ginger, shallots, water) then add some veggies and serve with noodles. It wasn’t awful, but it initially tasted very bland and I was sad that I had spend so much money on ingredients for something so boring. (Next time: halve the recipe. But really, next time? Probably not.) Grade: C+
I put this cake in the oven and left, instructing my dude to take it out with the timer, which should have happened while he was home. But instead it ended up in the over probably longer than it should have been there, which is why it was dry, I’m guessing? The batter was delicious. The cake was also delicious, but would have been best with lots of whipped cream or ice cream. No matter, since I still happily ate it for breakfast. Grade: B- for baker error, will try again with proper techniques.
