No Meat, Some Potatoes is over two years old. My child, already mobile, can form short sentences now, yelling them out even when inappropriate. It won’t be long before it can sort objects by shape and color.
A year has passed since I wrote this post in which I expressed interest in making freelance writing a bigger part of my career. That didn’t work out exactly. At least now I have a full-time job and new shoes. There will be much more exciting updates in the next few months, but for the meantime I can only say that I’m hanging in there and have been playing a lot of Online Tichu.
In celebration of my blog’s and my own infantile progress I figured it was time for a listicle, the laziest writing format. These are my favorite vegan or veganize-able recipes from the past two years. I hope you consider cooking and eating them.
My Top Five Favorite Vegan Recipes:
Rich, flavorful, and “meaty,” this chili will be made for years to come. The most recent time we made it was for the Super Bowl and it was a bigger hit than Justin Timberlake. Even without cheese and sour cream this chili is so good…not that I’m not tempted.
I’ve been in and out of the #pastalifestyle for many years now. Just thinking about this recipe makes me want to dive back in. The roasted vegetables get super sweet in the oven, an ideal contrast to the red pepper flakes and lemon juice. Wow, I’m going to make this for lunch next week!
One of my healthiest recipes, this soup is delicious and perfect for the remaining cold weeks of winter. It’s true, I’m not the biggest lentil fan, but when they’re in a flavorful broth surrounded by sweet potatoes I manage to choke them down. Bonus: this post features a picture of Natalie prior to when she became my roommate.
This post is the first and only recipe I made at the request of one of my Patreon supporters, who has since stopped supporting me. It’s alright, I’m gainfully employed now and these tacos rock. (Ignore the sour cream.)
This miso soup captures the simplicity and poor photo-quality of the earlier days of NMSP. This was posted when I still lived in a dank basement and needed any form of comfort I could get. I still make miso soup regularly, and plan to until I die.
Thank you for your continued support Mom, and enjoy!
