Best Breakfast..

Mexican Potato and Black Bean Hash

This is a picture heavy start with is the breakfast I made for myself and Peter on Sunday. We usually go out and get us some baked goods from Whole Foods. I've decided for New Years to start making us more morning meals on the weekends.

I created this meal in my head the night before. It just sorta came out of no where and I amazingly remembered it the next morning. I think I originally wanted to make a tofu scramble but didn't want to use tofu (?). I'm pretty sure that's what happened and I'm pretty sure Peter wouldn't be open to tofu scramble. I used potatoes instead of tofu and the rest just seemed to naturally flow and happen.

ingredients: yukon gold potatoes, bell pepper, onions, garlic, jalapeno, tumeric, cumin, cayenne, chile powder, black beans, spinach, salsa, avocado, scallions, salt, pepper and olive oil.

Chickpea Noodle Soup from Veganomicon

There is sickness going around. We haven't caught it yet and we are trying to keep it that way so I made some Chickpea Noodle Soup from V-con with extra garlic and miso. I used Barley Miso because I bought it by mistake and tried to use it for pesto which didn't work out well. The miso did however work out well in this soup recipe.

A Pretty Salad

Peter demands salads for "the vegan challenge". Peter gets salads.

Chocolate, Banana and Peanut Butter Milkshake

Before the vegan challenge Peter enjoyed Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshakes from the like of Magic Fountain and Stone Cold Creamery. I made a vegan version for us and went one step further and added banana. It was soooooooooooooooo good I wish I had bought 2 large containers of soy chocolate ice cream so we could have it again today and then the next day...etc..etc..

Love the hash! I make something similar, but it has a looser consistency. Try it over polenta, it's the best thing on a cold day!
