I tried two new recipes this weekend. The first was Karina’s Sweet Potato & Black Bean Enchiladas from the Gluten-Free Goddess blog. Take a look at the tastiness:

These really were very good. I love just about anything with black beans and sweet potatoes, and these were no exception. I was afraid it was going to be too spicy with all the chilies, but they really weren’t that spicy at all. This recipes definitely a keeper.

After I assembled the enchiladas, I still had a sizable amount of sweet potato mixture and beans left, so I assembled some sweet potato & black bean quesadillas—sweet potato mixture and beans sandwiched between two corn tortillas—wrapped them individually and thew them in the freezer. On a night I don’t feel like cooking I can thaw them a bit, throw them on a hot skillet, and have almost-instant dinner. Yay!

I also finally got around to making some of Katie’s famous Fudge Babies. These are amazing! If you’re a fan of Larabars or chocolate, you must make these. So fudgy and good (and healthy!). I think next time I make these I’ll throw in some peanut butter for Peanut Butter Cup Babies.

This morning I made Happy Herbivore’s Fat-Free Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls. I’d never made cinnamon rolls from scratch before, but these seemed much easier to make than I expected. They’re gooey and sweet and so tasty. I had two for breakfast, and Kevin had three. These will definitely make it into regular long-weekend breakfast rotation.

I’ll have a new recipe up tomorrow, so check back then! 🙂 In the meantime, have a lovely Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

I made the sushi bowls again tonight, but this time they’re on a plate and I added sweet potato and steamed broccoli. The results? Deliciousness!

I’m working on a cookie recipe I hope to post sometime next week. I made a test batch last night, and while they were pretty tasty, they had issues. I have a few ideas to fix them, so I’ll make another batch next week (my waistline can’t afford to have cookies in the house every night, not even low-fat vegan ones).

I’ve been trying to decide what all I’m going to make for Christmas. I know I’ll be making a few cookie tins for gifts, and I know for sure I’m making Happy Herbivore’s Soy-Free Mac ‘n Cheese, vegan sausage balls, and biscuits and maybe a pumpkin pie, but beyond that, I’m clueless.

Speaking of biscuits, here’s a quick and easy recipe for vegan biscuits made with Heart Smart Bisquick, modified from the recipe on the back of the box. I made them for dinner last night, and I was shocked by how good they were. They’d make a tasty breakfast sandwich with some tofu scramble and soy cheese (or fake bacon and soy cheese). We had them with tomato soup.

Vegan Bisquick Biscuits

1-1/2 cups Heart Smart Bisquick
1/2 cup unsweetened plain almond milk

Preheat oven to 450F. Mix Bisquick and milk together in a bowl. Transfer to a kneading surface sprinkled with Bisquick and knead 10 times. Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter (or the open end of a glass). Bake on a lightly oiled (or parchment-lined) baking sheet for 7-9 minutes.

What meat-free wonders are you cooking up for the holidays?
