Leftover Love- Spicy Lentil Gravy in Milano

Too many days of pasta and pizza lead to this delicious leftover lunch with KM, hearty mashed potatoes topped with a spicy brown lentil and red pepper curry with a green salad on the side. Here, leftover lentil curry performs the dual function of adding savory flavor and much-needed protein to an otherwise plain favorite.

Many new photos have made their way onto the tumblr, along with this one of KM in her lovely borrowed kitchen in Milano! Keep your eyes peeled for more in the coming days.

A Sandwich at Lake Como

KM and I were lucky to find tempeh in a teeny organic store in Milan. We were overjoyed! The marinated strips made their way into these pocket sandwiches stuffed with spicy arugula and vine-ripe tomatoes. It was the perfect sack lunch to accompany our day of adventuring, making new friends, hiking pilgrimage routes up steep cliffs, and swimming in clear, cold, deep mountain lakes.

This stuffed pocket is a tight contender with my favorite cucumber and sun dried tomato sandwich for best trekking sammy! The added tempeh packs a protein punch necessary for long journeys and Italian arugula is extra spicy and tender.

Dutch Pancakes

I've just returned from a whirlwind two week trip across the Atlantic! It can be quite a challenge to eat vegan while traveling abroad (especially if your language skills are limited) so I was glad to have many borrowed kitchens available for use! These pancakes were the delightful product of a bewildering trip to a grocery store in Jordaan, Amsterdam. Applesauce and soya milk made these golden moons a light and spongy addition to a pile of gloriously fresh farmstand produce.

Many more to come!
