a cross between vegetarian chili-cuban black bean. basically make a sofrito out of onions, carrots, garlic, celery, sweat it out with olive oil, add 2 cans of beans, add a big can of peeled tomatoes, along with 1 tb cumin, 1 tb chile pepper, 2 tb oregano and let simmer. Serve with rice, chopped scallions, and very good cheddar (we had a lovely 8 yr aged cheddar that was just divine). We also served it with roasted tofu cubes, but I want to give them another try to perfect the recipe (the inspiration is from Byrant Terry’s Vegan Soul Food)

not pictured: cinnamon raisin bagel, buttered and toasted. It was defrosted from the big bag of bagels I brought back from a NYC trip- I cannot believe that it is still so very good.

I finally opened the can of oven roasted tomatoes that I grew and made last year, peeled the soft tomatoes, and put them in a tomato-and-cheddar omelette. Oh. my. word. I am so growing these tomatoes and preserving them again, along with tomato jam.

udon with carrots and cabbage, with seasoned tempeh crumbles on top.

The nice folks at Toast have shared their incredible Calabrian tomato onion soup, which I heartily recommend with your finest grilled cheese sandwich, or their eggs-with-taleggio-and-chives sandwich. The soup is like a rich tomato version of the french onion soup, and I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed.

Uhm, how is it Friday already? Gotta post this now!
