I had to play truant for a couple of days, but now I’m back at VeganMoFo with my traditional CSA (b)log post and menu plan.

Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 41, 2012

  • Red, yellow & chioggia beets
  • Silver beet
  • Lollo Bionda lettuce
  • Hokkaido pumpkin
  • Doyenné pears
  • Parsley

I still got last week’s runner beans and will be getting cauliflower and purple kale tomorrow from another local organic garden. So what’s up this week?

Menuplan Thursday October 11th  – Wednesday 17th

  • Thursday: homemade tomato soup, leftover pasta with pesto, and leftover saag with chickpeas made into a pasta sauce with mushrooms, leek and baked onions.
  • Friday: rice with chili (freezer stash), avocado, home-made salsa picante and steamed silver beet.
    Baking pumpkin crumb cake with pecan streusel from Veganomicon (p.255) for my friend Loes’ birthday. Will adapt the streusel to a nut mix as I don’t have enough pecans.
  • Saturday: Turkish beans (taze fasulye), carrot-walnut salad with soygurt dressing (cevizli havuç salatasi) adapted from Lokanta cookbook and pide bread or a grain dish.
  • A variation of The Green Cuisine’s pumpkin-paprika soup -another VeganMoFo inspired dish!- and beet-potato salad
  • Baked potatoes, veggiedogs and sautéed silverbeet with creamy cauliflower ‘queso’ from Cadry’s Kitchen.
  • Quesadillas with leftover cauliflower ‘queso’; autumn salad with beetroot and baked pear/apple adapted from Baking Made Easy.
  • Dessert: sugared puff pastry with pear and chocolate syrup.
  • Snack: kale chips (or this VeganMoFo spicy kale recipe from The Green Cuisine).
  • Sandwich spread: eggless salad with last week’s celery. Recipe recommendations really MUCH appreciated!

Yay for VeganMoFo! Not only did my readers suggest wonderful pear desserts, one of them ‘clicked’ with a recipe I’d just come across at one of my fellow MoFo-ers, Have Cake, Will Travel!

Here’s the pear with chocolate syrup and sliced almonds I had for afters last night. It was awesome!

It would have been lovely on a pear tarte tatin as well. ;) But that was too much work for a Friday night.

I made 1/3 of the original recipe -which is SUPER easy- and still have plenty left to experiment with this week. Ideas: chocolate milk, banana split adaptation, fruit or (speculoos) cookies dipped in chocolate, chocolate soygurt… I can go on and on! ;) A new favourite for sure. Try it!

VeganMoFo logoAAARGH. I had totally missed that October was going to be VeganMoFo: the Vegan Month of Food, a month-long blogging event revolving around animal-free eating!

Well, maybe it’s better I’m not officially participating since I would never be able to post daily, but I can still join in the fun ;)

Starting off with a short one: a picture of my current fall fruit loot. It’s just apples and pears, but what a variety!

Fall fruit

This weekend I’ll be cooking St. Remy pears into some lovely dessert and make apple sauce of the Bramley Seedling cooking apples. I wish I had an excuse to bake apple pie though! ;P

Part of the apple sauce will probably end up in some vegan baking anyway, as it is often used as egg-replacer.

All of the fruit is organic and came from my two local CSA distributors. The eating pears are Conference and Doyenne de Comice (which I like best). Accompanied by star apples, Ingrid Marie apples and two quince. I’m looking for recipes for the latter, because I have never eaten this fruit before and have no idea what to do with it! Your recommendations will be HIGHLY appreciated :)

Thanks to Eating with the Rabbits for reminding me of VeganMoFo.

We’re halfway December and the end of our CSA season is nearing. Next week’s bag will be The Last!

But you haven’t even had a chance to enjoy any of this month’s organic vegetables… So, here are my veggies of weeks 48, 49 and (freshly picked up today) 50.

Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 50, 2010

WOW, what a mega bag of vegetables we got today! Remember the Invasion of the Broad-Leaved Endive Heads? This time there were even more! It makes a nice green background for the rest of the veggies ;) And Ringo totally went for it… Crazy cat :)

  • kale
  • endive
  • carrots (not washed, so they’ll keep longer)
  • root parsley (on the left of my pile of carrots, hiding behind the…)
  • kabocha pumpkin!
  • celeriac
  • cooking pears
  • Jerusalem artichoke

I’m not planning our menus and we’ve been eating out, visiting relatives et cetera so next to this HUGE new batch we still have some veggies of the previous weeks to use up: beetroot — but like I said; I’ve got great plans for that ;) — parsnip, kohlrabi, leek and 1 small pie pumpkin. Maybe I would be wise start planning again ;)

Say, Elsje: if you see anything you’d like to use for our 24 mini-marathon dinner next Friday, just give a shout!

Bento #30 came to work on Monday October 29th and was filled with leftovers from Sunday’s mahjong date (which I won btw :)

Bento #30

On the left: veggies (cauliflower florets, radishes and carrots), fresh basil leafs, laughing cow cheese wedge and hiding underneath is a container with homemade salsa picante.

Right tier: plain nacho crumbs, little plum tomatoes, mixed nuts and edamame.

On the side some pear and kiwi sprinkled with lemon.

It was very yummy ;) A pity that the weather was grey because now my picture turned out kind of bleak as well :(

Also posted in the LiveJournal Bentolunch community for details. Alongside several Halloween bento’s because of the date… That’s not a really big festivity in Holland though.

Gnoe goes ExtraVeganza!
