Chocolate Mousse, Shepherd’s Pie, Jerk Tempeh & More

Print Friendly

Vegan Chocolate Mousse swirled with some amazing coconut milk "ice cream" which I bought at the store. I made the mousse and it was amazing. Very rich. I got the recipe from Heidi Swanson's book Super Natural Cooking.  I picked this book on my last trip to New York City when I finally made it to Kitchen, Arts, & Letters.  If you like cookbooks and books about food you need to go to this store.

This is the vegan shepherd's pie I made.  To make the filling I used adzuki beans, mushrooms, parnips, and herbs and spices. 

People have been asking me for this recipe and I will get it to you guys. Next time I make it I will perfect it and be sure to record everything I do to share with everyone.

For the topping of the shepherd's pie I made mashed potatoes with kale in them. Talk about taking mashed potatoes to the next level. These were actually made with no oil, no butter, no cream, no milk, but were creamy and delicious.

Jerk Tempeh. I finally got my copy of Bryant Terry's new book called The Inspired Vegan. I have been really excited about this book since I found out about it's upcoming release last year. First day I got my hands on it I made this jerk temped recipe. Holy cow. This blew my mind. I will be making this again very soon. 

Curried tofu and spinach scramble. A solid breakfast any day of the week.

I never seem to be able to use the whole bunch of cilantro before it goes bad.  I don't know if I am the only one that has this problem but it frustrates me because I hate wasting greens. What I did here is put the coriander into a mason jar with water, cover it with a airated ziplock and store in the fridge. The cilantro lasted weeks! Amazing. The other solution I have come up with is to use more cilantro in my green smoothies.

Some lentils that I sprouted. I actually made sprouted lentil falafel that had arugula in them, Pretty, pretty good as Larry David would say.

My all-clad 12 inch frying pan that I bought at Sur la Table in NYC a few years ago. A wonderful addition to any kitchen.

That's it for my round for this week. I hope you guys get inspired and decide to try making a new dish at home this week made from whole plant based ingredients. The possibilities are endless.

I am happy to hear about your kitchen experiments so please share in the comments section below.
