Where Has Alicia Been?

Hi everyone! You are probably wondering where I have been. Life has been hectic are my house and I have had very little time to spend on the computer. I have been cooking though and have quite a few recipes to get posted for all of you.

Sue and I finally got together today and make our first three dishes from “Ad Hoc at Home”. We had no difficulty making them both vegan and healthy. We made Cream or Cauliflower Soup, Chicken and Sausage with Peppers, and Broccolini Salad. Needless to say there were many changes to the recipes to eliminate the animal products and reduce the fat. Some of the original recipes called for copious amounts of olive oil. We recreated every recipe with 1 tablespoon of oil, or less (total, not per serving).

Since I have only been home for an hour tonight and have an eye doctor appointment early tomorrow morning I don’t have time to post the recipes tonight either. Sorry! I thought I would share some sneak peeks of what you can expect to see in the next few days, as I get caught up.

Pictured above: Baked BBQ tofu on Spinach Salad, Barley Risotto with Beet and Beet Green, Cream of Cauliflower and Leek Soup with Torn Croutons and Beet Chips, Seitan Cutlets and Sausages with Peppers Rustica, Broccolini, Broccoli Rabe and Broccoli Salad.
