Ok, so for Christmas I got the Veganomicon cookbook written by the good folks over at the PPK. I've been looking through it but finally got around to making something. Having an Indian craving, I started with Samosa Stuffed Baked Potatoes and sauteed spinach and tomatoes. Can I just say, OMG!
Basically, the potatoes are samosa stuffing (potato insides, corriander seeds, mustard seeds, cumin, peas, onions, carrots) put into carved out potato skins and baked again. I love samosas but am on a trying-to-eat-healthy kick which makes their deep fried goodness a little bit too much of a splurge. But, these totally do it! There is one flavor in there (maybe the corriander seeds? or, I also put whole cumin seeds in as my own addition so maybe that is it) that is absolutely the thing that makes samosas taste like samosas to me. I'm thinking its the corriander seeds but I'm not sure. Along with them, I had the sauteed spinach recipe from the same cookbook except this time I added chickpeas for some protein. Holy delicious dinner, batman. This was fantastic! Yowza!
