Last week I solicited your advice about what to make as a filling meal for myself and a friend who had very different dietary restrictions. You all gave me a ton of amazing suggestions, and I am so appreciative. The food blogging community rises to any challenge!
Inspiration struck after my friend replied to my request for a list of well-loved veggies and cuisines. I turned to a couple of my favorite cookbooks to whip us up an Indian-inspired feast!
I had a ton of beets and lettuce from my box, so we started off with a not-at-all-Indian salad of red leaf lettuce, roasted beets, and spiced candied pecans in a citrus vinaigrette. Then I served a couple of my favorite easy curries – Aloo Gobhi (cauliflower and potato) from Vegan Express and Sweet Potatoes with Mustard Seeds from 5 Spices, 50 Dishes – accompanied by white basmati rice and a little spiced cabbage condiment, also from 5 Spices, 50 Dishes. It was an altogether delicious, healthy, and filling meal that satisfied our different diets and our taste buds! Plus, I had so many leftovers I got to eat Indian lunches for nearly a week. That’s my kind of feast!
