Old Reliables

I love experimenting with new recipes, but at least a few days a week it's nice to have some standbys that you know will come together and everyone will eat. It helps if they're based on pantry staples, too. These two were dinner last night and the night before.
Lentil Soup with Barley based on Nava Atlas' recipe in The Vegetarian Family Cookbook, which is, by the way, a great crossover book for vegetarians looking to cook more vegan meals.
Another serious favorite around here, especially with Ben, is Chickpea Cutlets from Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. These are good in lunches the next day, too, or so they tell me. Here they're served with a simple whole grain mustard sauce.
Tonight the experiments begin again!


  1. Yeah those cutlets rock. They are so easy and so delicious and are a great quick meal to put together. I'm loving the soup too. How chunky and gorgeous is that!

  2. That lentil soupd looks amazing. And that mustard sauce!!!

  3. I love lentil soup. We always have it Christmas Eve..
