Aren't you glad I don't have surgery very often?

Tight pants, time to hit the low-fat vegan cookbook: Appetite for Reduction. I looked and looked, but there is absolutely no bacon in there anywhere. I actually got it because I figure if anyone knows how to use up a giant box of vegetables, it's a vegan, right? Look what the CSA membership is driving me to! First recipe: braised cabbage with seitan, which I served over roasted yams. Oh, and also? I MADE that freakin' seitan. Out-hippie that.

Added bonus: nice and mushy for my still-compromised jaws.
It tasted good, probably because it was about 50% garlic and soy sauce. Works for me.

Next up: Ethiopian millet, greens, and mushrooms. Yeah, mushrooms, again. They weren't even in the box, I put them in a bag at at the grocery store and bought them on purpose! I have no idea what's happening to me, you guys.

You may have noticed that, like all smart and lazy people, I tend to favor one-pot meals. Any time I attempt three different dishes that all require more than one pot/pan I'm basically going to be angry at the meal before I even eat it. I would say that was definitely a factor here. Also, there were about 20 spices involved and they just came across as "generically spicy," not "complex and exotic" like I was hoping.

Also, the millet kept getting caught in the DISGUSTING HOLES in my mouth.
Anna is helping my efforts by reorganizing the kitchen for me.
