As much as I love cooking and baking, it sure is nice when someone else does the work. I was invited to A’s for dinner Monday night for what I’ll call a Pan-Orthodox vegan dinner.
Here we have a very fragrant basmati rice with fennel seeds.
Lentil dal: onions sautéed in vegetable oil, garam masala, coconut milk – and of course lentils.
Curried veggies: cauliflower, portobello mushroom, carrots, red skin potatoes, and peas tossed with turmeric and curry powder, and red pepper infused olive oil. Roasted at 400 for 1/2 hour.
I’m trying to remember this ingredients for this….um…prunes, for sure. Walnuts, bits of chocolate chips and, I think, cocoa powder. I might be forgetting something (maybe honey, judging by the other recipes I just peeked at).
The taste of this reminded me of a delicious chocolate covered jelly I had a few years ago. REALLY good.
Thank you, ladies, for the excellent food, and both ladies & gents for the good company.
