Mexican NightMay 2, 2010
I apologize for neglecting to blog for so long. Fortunately, my lack of postage is not at all due to of a lack of things to post about; quite the opposite, in fact—I haven’t had time to blog because I’ve been so busy traveling, eating, and cooking up lots of exciting meals! But now I’m back in T.O. and have more free time on my hands, and so I can finally get around to backblogging all my eats from the past two weeks. Here we go!
One night in NYC, while Caitlin was out attending one of her night classes, I stayed home and cooked up a Mexican dinner. The two dishes were recipes I found in Caitlin’s newly acquired (and already much beloved) Veganomicon, and this meal alone was testament enough of the cookbook’s greatness to me (though what else I’ve tried from it has also been incredible). The side dish for the night was Mexican Millet:
This doesn’t look like much, but it’s a mighty tasty bowl of grains and vegetables. It’s not very complicated—just millet cooked with Mexican spices—but everything comes together just right to give it that perfect Mexican flavor. Caitlin and I both really enjoyed this.
The main course for the night was Yuca Tortillas, something Caitlin had tried before but which were a first for me. And what a delicious first they were…
Unfortunately, this photo doesn’t really convey these tortillas’ tastiness. Inside of these nicely toasted and crunchy tortillas shells was stuffed mashed yuca, seasoned to perfection. The result was a simple yet very effective and scrumptious dinner. Here’s the close up:
I really don’t feel like these photos did this meal justice. But let this just be reason for you to go buy Veganomicon and then make these dishes for yourself! I promise you won’t regret it.
(Also, make sure to check back here soon—I’ll be blogging all week about many other meals long past!)
Until we eat again,
