"Barbeque" etc

January 23rd, 2017 at 05:37 pm

These ads are really annoying.

Last night I made "Barbeque" for dinner using soy curls. My DH, mostly a carnivore, gave it a thumbs up. We also had beans and Brussels sprouts - all made in the InstantPot.

DH's car is having break issues, so I came home from work and walked outside instead of going to the gym so he could use my car. My phone didn't die until I got home and took it out of my pocket to end my walk. It was cold, but I got home before it was dark.

He has an appointment on Wednesday. That cheap car isn't so cheap - plus its annoying having to change my plans so often. Ugh!

I made whole wheat spaghetti tonight for dinner so I could use up the sauce. There's enough for dinner tomorrow, unless DH eats it not realizing its whole wheat. Smile

It was so nice today not having to take pictures of my food for Pact. I may continue the workout and myfitnesspal pacts, but I think I'm done with the veggie pact. (Although that's the one that makes the most money ....)

    How are the beans prepared? They look yum!

    Thanks Ceejay.

    *soak beans overnight
    *cut up an onion and mince some garlic - sautee in IP in a smidge of olive oil and veggie broth
    *Add the rest of the veggie broth to IP
    *Add a healthy dose of turmeric, paprika, oregano, etc *tiny bit of salt
    *drain and rinse beans
    *add beans to IP
    *Put the lid on and make sure it's not venting
    *put IP on manual for 25 minutes and go take a nap. Smile I just kind of made up this recipe - is Great Northern Beans. DH eats seconds - which means he actually likes them.

    Awesome! I'm gonna try this (altered for stovetop cooking).

    Looks good to me! I've never tried soy-curls. Are they sort of like noodles?

  6. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Me too VS!

    Awesome Ceejay. Hope you like them. Smile
    Fern - kinda? You have to re-hydrate them before cooking. It's a fairly unprocessed soy bean.

    Looks yummy!

    I'm with fern...I have never tried soy curls.

  8. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    I only learned about them after getting the InstantPot and joining a vegan IP FB group. This is my second bag. I bought from Amazon

  9. Amber Says:

    Dinner looks great. I never even heard of soy curls

  10. fern Says:

    Oh, which vegan FB group do you belong to? I belong to two; maybe we're on the same ones and don't even know it. Smile One is Dr. Greger's group and the other is Earth-Friendly Food Choices.

    Thanks Amber

    Fern - no, the group I'm talking about is InstantPot Vegan recipes. I may be in Dr Gregor's group though. Will have to check out the other one.
