The Chef: Elizabeth
The Menu: An interesting mixture of recipes inspired by The Conscious Cook! Today's recipes are "inspired by" as opposed to "made from" the book, since—in our typical Friday style—we were running slightly low on ingredients. So, we have the lovely Roasted Fingerling Potatoes, and the Vietnamese-style Tofu Heroes with Asian Slaw, and, finally, a big kale salad. Since we went with whole-wheat bread instead of the requisite baguettes, Elizabeth decided to serve our sammies open-faced, and with chopped basil instead of cilantro, which she pretty much can't stand.
The Goods: First, a big congrats to Debbie! Hers is the winning answer from yesterday's comments. Debbie, send us an email with your full name and mailing address, and we'll send your copy of The Conscious Cook right out. It's with great sadness that we come to the end of this week. It will definitely be difficult to go back to our steady diet of whatever's-in-the-fridge casserole and a-salad-is-like-a-meal-right? salad after totally feasting on the amazing recipes from our Book of the Year Veggie Award winner! So, for the last copy that we'll be giving away, tell us in the comments: Which recipe from this week are you dying to try?!
