Menu A: Recipe List

August 7, 2009 at 1:04 am 1 comment

This menu is influenced heavily by what I had in my kitchen already, but I like that I can use tomato juice in two recipes, that most recipes had a good mix of vegetables, and none of these recipes involve scalding soymilk, making crusts, or any other cooking trickery.  The 8 oz of vegan cream cheese required for the Cheezy Lasagna isn’t something that screams ‘budget cooking’, but dude, look at the pictures of that lasagna.  I have a feeling the cream cheese will be worth it.

The Recipes for Menu A:

  1. Vegetable Curry (crockpot)
  2. Mexican Gumbo (crockpot)
  3. Best Vegan Mac & Cheese Recipe Ever
  4. Chickpea Cutlets (double batch)
  5. Raging Ratatouille
  6. Veganomicon’s Black Bean Burgers*  (or [ Black Bean Burgers ]) double batch either way
  7. Cheezy Lasagna
  8. Great Gazpacho
  9. Un-Beef Stew (crockpot)

Only about 3 people will be eating these – and most times only 2 of us will be here, so this is easily enough food for a month.  I can’t imagine it’s a month of food for most other families or groups, so if that’s your situation then either this menu will be a good start to your OAM menu, or you can use it for a bout of Once-Every-2-Weeks Cooking.  (Which, if google is to believed, isn’t actually a thing.)

*  My boyfriend and I love the Black Bean Burger recipe from Veganomicon and can’t be persuaded to go a month without it.  If you have Veganomicon, you should use this recipe (p. 97).  If you don’t, you should go buy it (it’s the vegan bible!) but barring that, the recipe in brackets has most of the same ingredients.
