Broccoli Quiche and Waldorf Salad

It's brunch for dinner! I used the Classic Broccoli Quiche recipe from Vegan Brunch and served it with a veganized Waldorf Salad over baby greens. I haven't had waldorf salad in years, but I suddenly craved it with this quiche. A bit of quick googling, and it turns out that it's super easy to veganize. Just substitute the super-tasty Vegenaise for mayo, and voila! I even used the Omega-3 version of Vegenaise, so that makes it healthy, right? RIGHT?

I admitted my time constraints this week and used store-bought crusts, but I really like this brand, so it worked out okay. They're flaky, don't leave a greasy mouth after-feel, and they're only $3.50 for two.

Both my kids enjoyed this meal, and the older went so far as to ask for the leftovers in his school lunch tomorrow. I would have gladly eaten the last piece, but I suppose my desire for easy lunch packing trumps my desire to overeat :)

Curry in a hurry.....

For my meal last week I made curried mustard greens with chickpeas and rice. I also made chocolate pudding for dessert. I like how mustard greens add its own natural spice to a dish. And who doesn't love pudding. Mmm mmm.

I'm back.....

Did you miss me? Hee hee. I am back cooking with the co-op after taking a break during the summer. It is nice to be back with such wonderful ladies and good cooks.

For my co-op meal this week, I cooked New Orleans red beans with andouille sausage, rice, and cornbread. I also made brownies. Simple yet tasty.
