Tonight’s post will be short because I’ve got my mind on curling up with a book, but I just had to share my cozy dinner. I can’t remember the last time food actually made me feel warm and fuzzy, but Vegan on the Cheap‘s Comfort Loaf (page 154) did just that. And as if the loaf itself wasn’t cozy enough, I made the Creamy Mushroom Gravy (page 31) to drizzle over each slice.
The vegetable loaf didn’t take long at all to prepare, with most of the time going to 50 minutes of baking. The flavor was simply perfect. After the meal I was already thinking of what a perfect late fall meal this will be for getting cozy with the family. The gravy was very creamy and rich, definitely for more than just vegloaf! I would definitely use this with anything savory gravies benefit from: casseroles, potatoes, noodles, vegetables. Vegan on the Cheap quoted the comfort loaf at under $1 per serving and the gravy at under 50 cents per serving, making this a whole meal for less than $1.50 per person. Now that’s fabulous!
I’m not sure what I’ll make from Vegan on the Cheap tomorrow, but there must be something else in there I have all the ingredients to make. So far, everything has been not only affordable, but delicious as well, so I don’t think I can go wrong. Well, I’m off to read… which probably means I’ll end up folding laundry, picking up toys, and cleaning various surfaces. That always happens somehow!
What dishes make you feel all warm and cozy? Are you ready for autumn or wishing the summer would live on forever?
