A Fresh Dille

too many apples.

Posted in FOOD, VEGAN by clairedille on October 14, 2010

No, I am not really apple-d out, but I am a little tired of baking with them. Since I promised myself that I would attempt a pie or galette, I got to it yesterday in the midst of not feeling well. I went with a galette recipe from Nicole’s blog to really showcase the apples. Unfortunately, I chopped way too many in a hurried manner, which meant I was left with a big pile of extra slices covering my cutting board. The recipe called for 5 apples, however, I simply could not fit that many into the middle of the dough and made a crumble as well. The only other change was that I used a combination of whole wheat pastry flour and spelt flour. Although the galette was not so beautiful, V found it pretty satisfying.

I didn’t even get a chance to take a photograph until after it was half eaten.

I’ve said it before, but I am not really a pie person, and enjoyed the upside down cake more because of the complex texture and flavors. This, however, was wonderfully simple.

The veggie cravings have been abundant.

Yesterday I threw together  both the raw and already roasted veggies in our fridge.

The baby spinach was topped with the leftover black bean-corn-onion-green pepper mixture from the stuffed spaghetti squash, mung bean sprouts, roasted broccoli, beets, and brussels, our garden tomatoes and radishes, and avocado. I then drizzled on some balsamic vinaigrette made with dijon, balsamic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. This was exactly what the doctor ordered.

Now, I am off to Ikea but I have more to share from yesterday featuring this lovely lady and a new-to-me vegetarian restaurant.

Other things:

-Do you like baked fruit? What is your baked fruit of choice?

-Did you stick to a running plan when getting back from an injury or starting fresh? Or did you go with the flow and create it as you went?
