a nice walk around the neighborhood and some quality time with the bf has left me in a much better mood 😀
we even got some laundry done which is always a good thing!
and to further cheer me up, tommy took me to the korean market cus he knows how much i love grocery shopping! i took the opportunity to stock up on tofu. they always throw free little yogurt drinks in the bag. 🙂
when we got back home, i shared this little guy with tommy and got started on dinner…
this is the steamed pumpkin after a quick blend…part of me wanted to bake a PIE…
but i knew veganomicon’s pumpkin baked ziti with caramelized onion would be even better!
doesn’t that just sound really good? it also has cashew “ricotta” in it…
served with a “simple arugula salad” as suggested in the book.
this meal was SO delicious! it tasted like “fall.” super creamy and comforting. i especially loved the caramelized onions throughout- next time i will make my own breadcrumbs though (which the book recommends)- the crunchy bits were perfect with the creamy ricotta.
i made tiny changes to the recipe according to what i had, but nothing major (for example i used cashew butter instead of raw cashews for the ricotta) and will definitely be making this one again.
