Vegan Dad's Scalloped Potatoes & Butternut Squash with Roasted Chestnuts
That said, if you don't own The Kind Diet, and you have any interest at all in simultaneously delicious and healthy food, you should buy a copy ASAP.
I gave my own copy away, and took too long to replace it. I finally bought myself another, and am once again inspired and sooooo ready to get back to simple, yummy, really good-for-me food.
And that second thing said, a couple nights ago I made scalloped potatoes and butternut squash with roasted chestnuts, recipe courtesy Vegan Dad. Not exactly the lowest in calories, but obviously healthier than its dairy-laden, all-potato counterpart.
Honestly, I was underwhelmed. And I am a big fan of many of Vegan Dad's recipes. It could be I messed up the recipe, but either way, I think I prefer all potatoes in my scalloped dishes. I felt confused; was I eating scalloped potatoes or sweet potato souffle (not that squash is sweet potatoes but you see the resemblance)?
Still, I definitely recommend his blog for a plethora of good vegan recipes and ideas. In particular, I LOVE the tempeh meatballs.
Alright... enough rambling from me.
