Wow, congratulations! I toyed with making my wedding dress but decided I was setting myself up for trauma. But now I'm envious of your effort. It looks wonderful.

that's such a great idea! i've been teaching a friend to knit...slowly...and these would be a great next step.
great idea!

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: help! celery and broccoli overload on: September 18, 2007 06:32:35 PM
Um, celery is hard...juice? With carrot, apple and mint?

with the broccoli, maybe try a dip. georgians (as in the former soviet republic, not the us state!) make a walnut veggie dip called pkhali which can made with just about any veg; try subsituting the green beans in this one http://www.recipezaar.com/227450 with broccoli. just make sure it's the broccoli isn't wet -- i'd suggest steaming it -- as your pkhali should be like a paste, not sloppy.

6  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Anyone have any good kale recipes? on: August 21, 2007 07:46:52 PM
i like kale sauteed with cooked french-style lentils (lentil de puy, though cheaper brown/green ones would work too), sometimes also with sliced mushrooms. and this is nice tossed through pasta as well. i haven't tried it like this, but i'm sure it would be good replacing broccoli in a classic olive oil-caper-garlic-chilli-lemon juice type pasta dish

yum, love reading through all these great ideas!
we had people over last night, so i fancied it up a bit --
mushroom, sweet potato and blue cheese pie
sauteed french lentils (my new fave side dish)
sauteed leeks, brussels sprouts, beet greens and cabbage
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm if i do say myself

9  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: What can I do with a Butternut Squash? on: February 11, 2007 08:25:09 PM
or you can peel, cube and roast it and make a salad with spinach and parmesan

or peel and cube it, make a smooth soup with southeast asian spices and coconut milk, and at the last minute throw in a few handfuls of spinach

or make a squash and chickpea curry

10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: I bought some Temph...now what do I do with it? on: January 17, 2007 02:19:37 AM
wouldn't you know it the site with my fave tempeh recipe is down?

anyway, two suggestions. one really easy: make a regular tomato sauce for pasta (with olives and chilli i reckon). blend a block of tempeh til it's all crumbled and add it to the sauce -- you don't have to brown in first. i was very skeptical about this, i'll admit, cos i like my tempeh well cooked, but it was really good

slightly more complicated, and less healthy. dice the tempeh. fry til brown and crispy. drain. fry up garlic, onion, tomato paste, chilli, salt (tempeh needs a good amount of salt in my salt-loving opinon) other indonesiany kind of spices (something sour or citrusy is good), till this is a thick yummy looking paste. stir the tempeh back in and cook up. should be quite hearty and spicy and rich, so serve just a couple of spoons with a big mound of plain (brown) rice and a stack of leafy greens, and if you're going all out, some indonesian bitter nut crackers (like prawn crackers but not). yum.
 let us know how you find it.
