This makes about 5 servings. It's sort of like vegetarian harira, which means I'm going to be disappointed in the way the frozen portions turn out, I suspect.

I made these for dinner tonight (well, actually, I made twice this amount and we'll have lunches to pack all week.) Simple, hearty, and healthy.

I made what I consider a delicious batch of vegetarian friend rice for supper tonight, and since I was writing it up anyway in the hope of being able to reproduce it in the future, I thought I'd share it here as well.

Dietary note: I made this with egg, so it's not vegan, but it would probably be pretty tasty without egg, with extra cabbage, or with some crumbled tofu.

Accessibility note: This dish involves several preparation steps including pre-cooking the rice and pre-making the sauce. It also requires chopping (although you could use pre-chopped or grated carrots and pre-shredded cabbage to cut down on that) and ten to fifteen minutes of standing over a hot wok or skillet stirring.

The sauce I used come from my favorite cookbook, Audrey Alsterburg and Wanda Urbanowicz, ReBar Modern Food Cookbook, and it's great for general stir-fry purposes too. Here's the recipe:

Here's the recipe for the rice:

1 large or 1.5 med onions, diced (about 2 cups)
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 28-oz can chunky tomato sauce
3 Tbsp molasses
~1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped small
~6 oz canned pumpkin
~1/2 package Quorn grounds
1 bottle porter beer (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder

1. Saute the onions in olive oil until translucent. (Optional; I prefer my onions cooked more than they get in a crock pot.)
2. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on high 3-4 hours or until done. (Spice quantities are estimates; adjust to taste.) (I assume you could do it longer on low.)

Serve with pumpkin spoon bread. (This is why there's a remnant of canned pumpkin in the chili, you see.) Bake the spoon bread toward the last hour of cooking, and it'll be nice and hot in your bowl.

This is a very nice soup for autumn, with its vibrant orange colour, and if you dial the ginger up like I did in the options below, you have a perfect meal for someone with a horrible, nasty cold who needs all the natural lurgy-fighting essences she can get. With the ginger at the normal level, in my experience, it's also a soup for kids.

Accessibility Notes: You will need to be able to chop veg, stir in a pot, and blend either with an immersion blender or by transferring to a blender and back to the pot.

Enjoy!

This evening I had planned to make the autumn vegetable roast from easy vegetarian one-pot, but I had some white wine and a craving for Tarragon Chicken Tray Bake - but neither tarragon nor chicken. A bit of googling, the vague process outline from In the Kitchen's spicy vegetable bake, and this happened:

Ingredients and method )

This works perfectly well as a one-pot meal. If I were serving it at a dinner party, though, I would accompany it with something... I'm thinking of my mother's cold rice and apple salad, which doesn't seem to be duplicated online but is not entirely unlike this rice salad here. Chronic meat-eaters might find baked vegetables like this a good accompaniment to roast chicken (stuff with sliced apples? Or is that overkill on the apples... lemon might counter-balance the sweetness nicely).

** I haven't worked out the ideal temperature / time ratio. An hour was nooot quite enough at 180 degrees. Either up the temperature or extend the time! I have this problem with the spicy vegetable bake, too.

It's getting cooler out, and I love a nice curry in fall. A friend shared a link to a recipe for homemade curry roux, and we tried the basic recipe once. It was fine, but I thought about the various other flavors of curry I've gotten in the boxes at the Japanese grocery store, and I decided to try something a little different.

3 Tbsp butter
1/4 c flour
1.5 Tbsp garam masala
0.5 Tbsp hot curry powder (or to taste)
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp pureed ginger
1 Tbsp molasses
1 Tbsp tonkatsu sauce

1. Melt the butter over medium low heat.
2. Mix the flour, garam masala, and cinnamon in and stir until they form a thick paste.
3. Stir in the ginger, molasses, and tonkatsu sauce, and cook until it starts to crumble. (This takes 5-10 minutes, so don't fret.) Set aside.
4. Add roux to curry as directed in the original recipe.

Oh, and here's the vegetables & stuff I put in the curry (in order): onions, mushrooms, Quorn tenders, sweet potatoes, kabocha squash. The wonderful part of a curry is that you can use whatever vegetables you like best and/or are in season.
