Ginger Peach Tea
Willie's Colossal Confetti Salad
Terry Walters' Silky Sweet Potato Pie
Terry Walters' Baked Maple Mustard Tempeh
I did take things a little bit easier today. Instead of spending 5 hours in the kitchen, I only spent 2. Also, everything was much healthier. Barely any oil was used at all. Flax and sea veg was abundant. Willie over at Until We Eat Again makes a really badass salad. the first time I had it, it was made by the man himself. The first time I put it together it wasn't nearly as good because I didn't put enough stuff in it. This time, I loaded lose kale leaves up with so much goodness, hoo-boy. Willie, thank you for this salad, it completes me.
I've had both of Terry Walters' books - Clean Food and Clean Start - for awhile and have only managed to use it once or twice. I doubled my usage out today when I made her sweet potato pie and baked tempeh. Both were delicious. I especially loved the crust for the pie because it didn't involve a rolling pin. Just smushing of dough into pie dish. Of course I couldn't find my glass pie dish and had to use the tin version but, a win's a win. I chose the tempeh because the recipe called for maple syrup, something I was already using in the pie. Everyone found it super flavourful, I'll definitely be making it again.
