Vegan MoFo VI, Day 2 - Cookbook Challenge - Vegan Diner
As I mentioned yesterday, this week's book is Vegan Diner by Julie Hasson. I hate to say it, but for some reason, though many of the recipes struck my fancy (because Lard knows I love diner food), I've hardly made anything from this book.
Tonight I made the Smoky Potato Scramble, because brinner is the best meal of the day. The only mods I made were to slightly decrease the oil and slightly increase the nooch. I'm super particular about my scramble, so I'm always pretty reluctant to try new ones. And this one didn't have any cumin, so.
As it turns out, this was really, really good. It suffered a bit health-wise by having onions as the only veg, but it was super tasty. It was really easy to make, too, though slightly time-consuming due to having to first boil potatoes (which she does mention you can do the day before). I think I'd make this again, though I'd maybe add some spinach or something to make it a bit healthier.
I had planned to make the Blue Plate Special - this scramble, cornmeal waffles, and gravy - but I didn't have the patience for it. But I'm not firmly committed to my project for tomorrow (since we already have a pretty sizable amount of leftovers), so I think I'll make the other components tomorrow.
