I made an easy Indian lentil dish, fast and tasty.

I'm lazy and food has to be very easy to make:

cooked lentils (I buy cans in France and drain them, I'm lazy and my lentils are never perfect, these are)
veggie ghee
onion
can/jar/fresh tomatoes
fresh coriander (cilantro)
garam masala
cumin

Everything to personal taste.
Heat it all up and it's great.
If you like it creamy, and I do, add some greek youghurt, or drain regular youghurt and add.

A quick stir-fry at our house tonight.

Leeks, celery, carrots, yellow bell pepper, broccoli (basically, whatever I had in the fridge) and canned water chestnuts. Stir-fried in peanut oil. sesame oil, mirin and a bit of rice vinegar. I then added a bit of a paste I had mashed up in the pestle: cilantro, garlic, lime, ginger. Plus a dash of tamari and some sambal oelek (sriracha would work too).

After tossing the veggies in a bowl, I stir fried some tofu (frozen, then thawed, then drained and pressed) in peanut oil and tamari. Set that aside and did a quick swirl of some pre-soaked rice noodles in the left-over oil.

Piled everything together (noodles, then veggies, then tofu) in a bowl, served with tamari, sambal and cilantro on the side for those who wanted add-ons.

Sounds wonderful!
I never considered using more than one oil, but the combo of peanut & sesame oil and mirin sounds great.
I add a lot of vinegar to things. There's a Korean vinegar with onion and pepper that's just grand.

I weeded my garden and put together this dish using dandelion greens. Glad I didn't through them out, they were so tasty!

I cleaned and washed the dandelion greens. Simmered them along with a thinly sliced leek.
Added two packaged of extra firm tofu, cubed
one minced garlic clove
one head of escarole
Served with Yukon gold potatoes roasted with olive oil, fresh parsley and dill.
Really good!

Sounds good, Sheena. When I was young, my friend's mother made dandelion greens. It was always a treat.

I bought some cheap eggplants recently and before they went bad, I decided to use them up in a new (to me) attempt at a low/no carb meal that turned out surprisingly delicious.

I used a dry heated cast iron skillet (one of my favorite tools in the kitchen)

I sliced eggplant into 1/2" thick rounds
Laid in single layer on low heat, covered (about 10-15 minutes each side).
When just about done on the second side...
I placed a small amount of pesto on the top, covered by a thin slice of goat's cheese...
Let the cheese and pesto melt in the covered skillet.

I added a thin slice of tomato and piece of onion that I lightly fried earlier in the day.

Scrumptuous.

Your awesome post made me wonder how many on the veggie forum "forage" for food.

I'll start another thread...

Made me hungry again, darn you!

LOVE eggplant.

Tonight, after a loooong day in the car, I just did a quickie noodle stir fry (leeks, garlic, ginger w/ soba ). I tossed in sesame seeds for crunch.

I wish I could find something better too. I don't like Thai Kitchen but usually that's all the supermarkets have.
