Zucchini Bread

Our Vegan keeps us on our toes with delicious concoctions Happiness Spotter S

This summer has been my first foray into gardening, and I haven’t been sure that we are going to get much except some herbs. To be honest, I am not a great gardener anyways – I planted them and water the veggies, but I don’t weed enough and tend the plants (I don’t even really know what it means to tend the plants).  BUT, we have been lucky enough to get some cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, and humongous zucchini! The zucchini has by far been the winner – we have gotten tons of them and I am not really sure what to do with all of it! So this week I made zucchini bread and its perfect. I added white chocolate chips to give it some extra sweetness, and I have been having it for dessert every night (which is slightly healthier than chocolate chip cookies or ice cream I usually…

Summertime Macaroni Salad

Our Vegan Queen Spotter S

What’s better than a summertime grill-fest and a side of macaroni salad? In my opinion, pretty much nothing. Last night we grilled up some tofu using a barbecue marinade and I made this salad. VERY easy to put together, but it came out great so I thought it was worth posting. Our garden is finally giving us some veggies, and I got to use some of those in this recipe too.

Next time I would sub in some greek yogurt for all or some of the mayo since that would make it a whole lot healthier, but since I had never really made macaroni salad before, I kept it basic (and full of mayo). We did add some vegan sausage to amp up the flavor and I made tons extra so I can eat it for the next few days!

Crispy Kale Chaat

If you have been to an Indian restaurant in Washington D.C., then you have seen either a “crispy spinach chaat” or “crispy kale chaat” on the menu. Its a twist on a popular Indian street food – chaat – which is basically a loose term for a collection of sweet/savory dishes that are usually found in roadside stalls in India (but is usually found in restaurants both there and here all prettied up!). I think chaat is kind of hard to explain unless you have had it, since the flavors are a real explosion of sweet/salty/tangy/crispy all in one. I love it. Chaat nights where we just eat a bunch of different types of chaat is up there with my favorite meals of all time.

I tried to recreate the crispy kale chaat I love so much at a restaurant here called Bombay Club. I am not sure its as good…
