I haven’t had nearly as much time to cook recently as I did a year ago. I used to be able to claim that I cooked dinner 3-4 times a week, with the remaining days being split between a quick convenience food and leftovers. These days, I feel like I’m making dinner less and less frequently, but when I do, I appreciate the results of my efforts that much more.
Last night, I tried the Chuckwagon Stew recipe from Vegan Vittles, a book put out by the Farm Sanctuary. I haven’t tried too many of the recipes from there, but I think I’ll give a few more a shot in the near future. The stew was easy to make and I had everything on hand. It was nice and thick (especially after adding the whole wheat pastry flour) and was hot and filling. If you’re not a fan of tempeh, another meat-like substitute work probably work as well, or just add more potatoes.
