Cookbook Week: Pierogi with Fried Onions

The Chef: Sara

The Menu: A perfect plate of pert pierogi! These cute little dumplings were stuffed with mashed potatoes and fried onions, and they were just about as tasty as can be. Sara's spinach side salad was a stupendous supplement to the savory main.

The Goods: Whoa! Did you know that the holidays are heavily breathing their candy-cane breath down our necks? Yeah, they are. What with all the frenzied gift purchasing, it's nice to be able to give something away for free every day. Here at the VNHQ, we've so far had a bunch of great lunches from 1,000 Vegan Recipes and today's was no exception. Congratulations to yesterday's giveaway winner, Josiane! Josiane, send us an email, and we'll send your copy of the book right out.

Now, today we had the pleasure of dining with Ms. Laura Beck. This lovely lady just returned from a whirlwind trip to NYC and Chicago, and still found time to spoil us with treats. She brought a box of S'mores Bars by Sweet Fritsy, and, um, wow. Incredible. Gooey marshmallow layer on rich fudge layer, topped with graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips. We are in love. Here's our new sweetie:
Now that you've met our latest obsession, for today's copy of 1,000 Vegan Recipes, tell us in the comments: What are you totally in love with right now?

I'm totally in love with love! But, if you mean a food or beverage, then the answer is Synergy's ginger kombucha. :)

With the bitter cold weather we are having, my current love is soup, any veg soup really, but mostly a vegan version of my nonny's (grandmother) minestrone.
ooo, I think I'll go make some now.

Haley said...

Honestly? I'm totally in love with my boyfriend who recently went vegan!

Talk about a x-mas present! <3

Oh, but if you're talking about food, I'm falling more and more in love with "raw foods." Although I don't imagine myself going "raw," I can definitely see it becoming a big part of my life!

Candy cane Joe Joe's from Trader Joe's. Glad they're only in stock once a year.

I am totally in love with winter produce. I've been loading up on squash, sweet potato, citrus fruit, and kale. So hearty and delicious!

Right now I'm totally in love with Pangea's caramels. I buy them with the intention of attempting to create a vegan version of the Whatchamacallit candy bar, but then I eat them all plain because they are so good. They taste like a softer, butterscotch hybrid caramel: totally delicious. Thanks for asking!

Right now I'm enjoying way too many oranges. Well, maybe not too many! They are so good at this time of the year! :) -Eve

Josiane said...

Raw chocolate peanut butter banana ice cream. The food processor works wonders!

New Belgium Brewery's 1554. It's the perfect dark beer on a cold wintery night.

Carla said...

Ajii Panca and Ajii Amarillo. These are tasty South American pepper pastes that I was introduced to while testing for Terry Hope Romero's upcoming Viva Vegan - I use them in everything from Salad Dressings to hot sauces to stir fries!!

The Ordinary Vegetarian said...

I'm obsessed with soup, it's practically coming out of my ears. Although I'm pretty sure I'd be obsessed with those pierogies if given the chance!

Food: Thai Papaya salad! I could have this night and day.

Not Food: My 8-month old kittens, and the love of my life.

I modified the Happy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and made the most amazing double chocolate espresso cookies a few nights ago. I am SO totally in love with them!

PodPiper said...

I'm totally in love with Daiya cheese at the moment. A little sprinkle of it on different foods... like a big bowl of chili... transforms the dish to a gooey masterpiece.

vanessa said...

I am OBSESSED with squash right now, in any form! I even eat it for breakfast, as what I like to call Squash Porridge: puree squash with coconut oil, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt, heat up in a pot, and top with almond butter and maple syrup. Mmmmm....Or soup (onion, garlic, pumpkin pie spice, and asqueeze of lime juice). Or roasted with sage, or sauteed with apples, or, or, or...;)

Wintu's World said...

Corn and black bean salsa with obscene amounts of cilantro and lime juice. I've been eating it like a fiend for weeks! I just can't get enough. Yum!!
