Teenage Vegan

So, what's on the menu for this week?

Seitan piccata in a white wine and caper sauce, served with grilled oyster mushrooms and grilled (or maybe steamed?) asperation

Caramelized fennel and shallot risotto with fresh tarragon and a nice big salad on the side

A nice and "plain" meal that I'm desperately in need of: Brown rice, adzuki beans cooked with kombu, steamed kale, roasted squash, and beets, maybe with a tahini miso dressing drizzled over all of it.

And for our raw meal of the week (from my new "cook"book Rawvolution): collard green wraps filled with seed cheese and a variety of veggies

Midweek Munchies, a veg*n meme!

I wish I could afford to buy 90% organic! That's awesome. Food is already expense enough (for my parents- they pay for it) buying mostly conventional!
Are those first two recipes from cookbooks?

Hey! It's great to hear from a fellow teenage vegan! I did get really lucky with parents who choose to buy organic, and also with this great natural food co-op by my house that has reasonably priced organic produce. Plus we go to a lot of farmers markets during the summer, where stuff is practically free!

The first recipe (for the seitan piccata) is from the Candle Cafe cookbook, and the second recipe (for the carmelized fennel and shallot risotto) is from Fresh and Fast Vegan Pleasures. I haven't made much out of either book, but the things I have tried (especially from the Candle Cafe book) are amazing!
