I made this in the Instant Pot-
Super easy and good, I doubled the recipe. It's more for tomorrow, as I love pasta the next day.
Any other Potters besides @Mel ?
Today was more picking at things from the freezer and a lot of watermelon

Oh wow that looks good!
I used no boil lasagna noodles from Aldi (not sure if they're a regular or not) but any pasta that's a wider type, like campanelle, or bow tie, or if you can find the kind that look like doll sized lasagna noodles, will work. I can't find those anywhere anymore!
As long as the liquid covers the noodles and you stir (before adding the chopped tomatoes) it comes out great. Tomorrow I may add a small jar of pizza sauce if it's too dry.
I used onion, mushroom, peppers and zucchini

Warning about the new Beyond Burger- it's soooooo much like what I would think a hamburger is like! I just had one a week or so ago of the original- that smell reminded me of canned dog food. Another store had a sale so I got another pack. It's clear that it's a new formula "more meaty", it had specks of fat, and smells quite different-although not like a beef burger! But the look and taste! Wow. I am quite familiar with my reaction to when I bit into meat by accident, and these definitely didn't trigger that, but it really seemed very realistic

Oh, same store had the Beyond Meat ground. :yuck: :shrug::yuck::shrug:
Looks awful! In a sealed plastic just like meat comes in--but I have a high curiousity level, and do like the burgers.....
It's like I'm trying to pack in all the processed food before giving them up, but then I don't give them up :oops:

I'm meeting up with a friend for dinner at the plateau which is a 15 minute drive from my place.
We are going
to have a picnic so I've made a vegetable & quinoa salad plus some chickpea puree. Apricots & cavaillon melon for dessert. I
may also take a margarita in the ice box. We'll see.🍸

A Jersey Royal & cauliflower salad served warm with vinaigrette and sliced frankfurters.
Cavaillon melon.
A margarita.
:lick: That's a funny coincidence, but this morning, i've had a cauliflower salad too (with yellow tomatoes and raw shredded beets). But the cauliflower was raw as well...

I prefer cauliflower to be lightly steamed for salads.🥙
Indeed, it's a matter of taste, because, i have to admit: cooked (in any way) cauliflower and raw one - are like two different flavours, even two different veggies (at least, that's how i feel). I used to love cooked cauliflower in my younger years, but i had a feeling that it can taste even better, so, relatively recently, i came to the pure delightful taste of raw cruciferous veggies (all of them). The only exception is raw brussel sprouts: i haven't tried them raw yet, because they cost like gold.:iiam: Moreover, they say, they may be slightly poisonous (i have no clue if it's true or not).:shrug:

Vals chili looks so good :lick:

I'm gonna try a Thai place that's right by me! It gets great reviews, has a specific vegan items. I think I got the veg Pad Thai once and was disappointed in lack of veggies :shrug:, they have a wonderful menu!

We had the two types of vegan ravioli that Aldi had for sale this week. We ate the spinach filled one with a basil tomato sauce, and I made pesto to top the eggplant and pepper filled ravioli.

The vegan sour creme is pretty good- can taste the starches, but it was really good in mashed potatoes.
The ravioli is too expensive and makes me want to try and make it!
Have to get their chik'n strips - my son loves the Beyond Meat ones
