Menu B: Recipe List
This is more ambitious than Menu A, mostly because it just plain makes a lot of food: 66 servings total. If you’re cooking for 2, you’re covered for a solid month, and if you’re cooking for 3 and have a few spaghetti nights/dinners elsewhere, it should still work out.
Also, since Menu A requires two sometimes hard-to-find ingredients (the nutritional yeast and vital wheat gluten), this menu won’t use either one.
- Pinto Beans & Rice (crock pot)
- Eggplant Pomodoro
- Tortilla-Black Bean Casserole
- Delicious Pakistani Dhal
- Ethiopian Spicy Tomato Lentil Stew
- Moroccan Vegetable Stew with Herbed Couscous
- African Peanut-Potato Stew
- Caribbean Beans & Quinoa
- Barbeque Tofu (crock pot)
- Cumin Rice with Eggplant & Peas
There was almost an accidental world theme where every recipe would have clearly been from a specific country. I ended up ditching a French Lentil Soup recipe (okay, I don’t think that’s actually from France, but still. Cute.) and an Enchilada recipe because they were too similar to other things, but I’m much happier with what I replaced them with, and hey – now there’s no accidental world theme! I love international food, but I think that’s one of those things that sounds great until you actually announce it to your roommate (“Hey! Guess what? Every dinner you eat for the next month will be a recipe themed on a different country!”) If I tried that stunt, my sister would either kill herself or me – not sure which, but I don’t like my odds.
Of course, if you’re into the world cuisine idea, the last two recipes still give you enough latitude to claim it.
