color us green..
Our very green dinner. Green noodles from The Vegetarian Family Cookbook by Nava Atlas. A very kid friendly recipe. Basically it is green peas, steamed broccoli, a bit of silken tofu and soy milk pureed. I used to make this a lot when the kids were toddlers. I haven't made in quite a while though. It seemed a bit bland for me, but that is probably why the kids like it. Note to self.. next time it would be awesome smothered w/ some sauteed garlic, onions and mushrooms.
The Best Pumpkin Muffins from Vegan w/a Vengeance .. and if you don't have the book (who doesn't?) the recipe is on the post punk kitchen here.
And they truly are the best! Emma and I made them this morning. Yet another classmate will be celebrating a birthday this week.Which means they will be bringing cupcakes to school. So we have to be prepared.
She was cute while making them she saw how much sugar was going in and said " these are kinda not good for you, huh mom? well, at least they have pumpkin in them and at least that's a fruit or something"
