Mountain Weekend and This Week's Meal Plan

Hi folks! 

Spent a lovely weekend with friends in Saluda and Hendersonville, NC this weekend. Not always easy to find vegan meals in the smaller towns (usually a trip to Asheville is the most fruitful).  The highlight of the eating part of the weekend was a fantastic green plate at the Purple Onion - consisting of roasted turnips, carrots and watermelon radishes, braised mizuna greens and quinoa with eggplant!!  Not certain it was 100% vegan (perhaps some dairy in the quinoa), but it was fantastic!

This week we are having black bean and sweet potato burritos (throwing it together), Ethiopian lentils and greens, miso soup, mjaddarah (lentils and rice) and baked falafel from Appetite from Reduction. I will probably harvest some swiss chard from the garden as the upcoming first frost looms. I am thinking of doing something simple with it, a saute or something.

Unfortunately I missed the Vegan Brunch at Pinhook this weekend, but hoping to get there in December!

What lovely Fall veggies or fruits are you cooking with this week?


  1. Spaghetti squash steamed with garlic and onion- topped with fresh pecans and asiago cheese.

  2. Yum! I really need to do spaghetti squash again soon! Thanks for the reminder, karyatissa!
