I wasn’t feeling quite 100 percent Sunday, so I relied on Urban Vegan’s test recipes for our dinner. (Thanks for all of your get-well wishes!) And of course there is still this:
What should be 3 feet of lighting on my kitchen ceiling. Someday…..
The testers arrived, quite serious and hungry.
The most fabulous Hearty Adzuki Bean Soup
Mini Rice Croquettes with a super delicious Wasabi Miso Dipping Sauce
A refreshing Jicama Salad
And fantastic Balsamic Roasted Vegetables
Here is our table full of yummies. I found it interesting to see the soup bowls with varying degrees of DIY garnish.
I made myself a nice plate to go with my soup.
I sometimes wish I had the time to write a cookbook, but it’s much more fun to test and eat and let someone else do all the work. We will all certainly enjoy The Urban Vegan: 250 Street-Smart, Animal-Free Recipes when it’s released!
Now for cake! I must have been out of my mind sick to have waited an entire day to cut into the Daring Bakers Caramel Cake. It is totally delicious and so moist. The crumb is tight, yet the texture is light. And we all really really liked the frosting, which we don’t normally like, and even dipped into the frosting shot I made! Look how lovely.
