Two small nut roasts ; one for tomorrow as I'm invited for lunch and the other one for tonight's dinner.

I made Sicilian-style broccoli (basically sauteed in veg broth with some garlic and raisons thrown in), mashed potatoes, and marinated tofu. I was happy to see my parents eat the tofu and actually like it. They used to make fun of tofu. Oh how far they have come :D

A batch of white seitan.
Steamed French beans and cauliflower.
That's good that you mentioned French beans.:) I'm craving green beans these days, and i love romano beans, but our pathetic local shop temporarily doesn't sell them any more (they are sold in that shop only:iiam:), but i know a place where French beans are sold. I might try them: anyway, i'm subconsciously looking for a taste that would remind me of Armenian beans' taste (i haven't seen them anywhere except Caucasus,- and romano beans have very slight similarity). I know: the real reason of my bean escapades - is that i merely miss Caucasus and i miss Armenians.<3

I made banana-peanut butter ice cream. I usually make it with other nut butters, but I'm out of everything except peanut butter. I will have it with chocolate sauce on it for dessert tonight.

I wish I liked banana flavor- they're such a good texture for ice cream

You should try this :p Chickpea Peanut Butter Ice Cream (Vegan/Gluten-Free)
The chocolate sweet potato thing was pretty good--the two people who tried it said so too--but not the kind of thing I'd make again. Healthy 'desserts' sure don't have any "cravability" :rolleyes: :dismay:
I may try it again with some nut butter added. Or freeze it? :ignore:

I have found a tasty combination: pre-soaked, and pre-boiled (not enough) red beans are sauteed with red and orange bell peppers. The sauce consists of yeast seasoning, sumac, cayenne hot salsa, etc. It's so simple, but so yummy... Yesterday evening, when i was cooking that mesivo on the small electric stove, mom was sniffing and moaning: "Mmm! Smells good! ...Like something oriental!" ...Haha, i answered: "You seem to like the smell, but it's all vegan!" She said: "So what? It's the spices that smell so good and attract us". I said: "Exactly! You don't like the taste of meat itself,- you like the sophisticated mixture of spices, but unfortunately, they (spices) associate with certain meat dishes, into which they are being traditionally added!"
She sighed: "Indeed"...

I have this in the Instant Pot now-
Vegan steamed rice cheese
Love this cheese! I used 3 Tbls nooch, balsamic vinegar instead of white, 5 drops liquid smoke, 2/3 rice flour, 1/3 tapioca, dijon mustard. I messed up with the water- added 1 cup instead of 3/4. Hoping for the best. It turned into a firm cheese before, so maybe just softer :shrug:
Hadn't made it in so long because my refined coconut oil was too old. Found it at a great price at my discount store!
