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

PURPOSE of Midweek Munchies: Put together by a small group of Veg Women, we hope to spread the word about healthy vegetarianism while obtaining idea starters for meals, recipes, learn about new products, and meet other female veg*n bloggers. Visiting and commenting on other participants lists are encouraged but not required.
Have fun and Go Veg!
