Those of you who've known me long enough are aware that I stopped eating meat many years ago. I think it's been about 9 years now, and about 4 years that I've been mostly vegan (traveling and eating out sometimes has its challenges). I have lots of standard dishes I make at home and whenever I try something different, my husband likes to say I'm "experimenting".
I'm trying to use what we've got on hand rather than running to the grocery store all the time, so over the weekend I made daal, potatoes with green beans (made from leftovers) and for my husband. I also made a cucumber greek yogurt salad. No recipes, but I know what tastes I like so a pinch of this and a dash of that until I get close to what I'm looking for.
Something I've started doing recently is making my own tortillas, flatbread, whatever you want to call it -- every culture has their own take on it.
I halved this recipe (2 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp of salt, 3/4 cup water, 3 TBS olive oil) to get 4 portions (sometimes I add other spices like cumin, garlic powder, etc).
Roll them out and then spray your pan and cook a minute or two on each side.
So quick and easy. I don't know why it took me so long to make my own.
This meal was obviously Indian inspired; one of my favorite cuisines.
Have a great start to the week.
