Tonight was definitely a chili night. So I made some!

2 medium onions
3 cloves garlic
2 T vegetable oil
1/2 cup chili powder
1 can red kidney beans
1 can black beans
12 meatless meatballs
1 T Tabasco chipotle sauce
1 large can crushed tomatoes
2 T molasses
2 T honey
salt and pepper for seasoning
1 bay leaves

Sweat/saute the onions and garlic in the oil.
Add some of the chili powder and a little salt and pepper and continue to sweat.
Wash the beans, and add them to the mix. Add a little more chili powder.
Crush up and mix in the meatballs, and add the chipotle sauce.
Add the crushed tomatoes, and use about half a can of water to rinse out the can and add that to the mix.
Simmer the chili, add the molasses and honey, and add in two bay leaves.
Chili is ready when the bay leaves are flexible, be sure to take them out!

1/3 cup soy milk
2/3 cup rice milk
3 servings egg replacer
2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 (1/2-inch) slices day-old or stale country loaf, brioche
4 tablespoons margarine

In medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the soy, egg mix, honey, and salt. You may do this the night before. When ready to cook, pour custard-like mixture into a pie pan and set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting in a sheet pan, and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.

Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit.

I was inspired by an episode of $40 a day where Rachael Ray goes to Florence, Italy - there was a restaurant there that made a "bread soup" dish. Very earthy, hearty, peasant food.

I had half a loaf of stale oatmeal bread, and I had sauteed some peas and onions, so I figured "what the hell" and made an experiment. It turned out pretty good, and I made a lot of it!

3 c vegetable broth
1 can tomato sauce
2 cups sauteed peas and onions
1 can cream style corn
2 cups parmesean cheese
salt and pepper to season; extra pepper to taste for authentic peasant flavor
half loaf stale oatmeal bread
2 cups water

Break up the oatmeal bread into chunks, combine all ingredients in a dutch oven and simmer on low. You'll get a very thick, hearty stew.

1 carrot, chopped
3 T canola oil mayo
1 t molasses
black pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!

Yesterday I made stuffed vegan cabbage (aka "glumpkies"), fried tofu, cole slaw, and pasta with garlicky collard greens.

The stuffed cabbage came out great - I probably could have made the cabbage a little more tender, but there was a great cabbage-y flavor to them. The cole slaw has an oriental flavor, and there's a nice fresh jalepeno in there that gives it just a little tiny bit. I made my own teriyaki to fry the tofu in... and the pasta came out SO tasty.

Mmm. :) :)

Great for a salad with slightly bitter greens (and you don't have any other veggies to dump in).

1/2 c olive oil
1/2 c rice wine vinegar
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
splash of vanilla

I've been making bread in my bread machine instead of buying it... I love the smell of fresh bread. Today I am also using my crock pot for the first time, and I'm making a soup with a bunch of greens in it.

Many Greens Soup )

I love it. I love cooking. I love keeping house.

Anybody out there looking for a housewife...?
