We will start this week with something sweet… Let me guess, you have been super hard on yourself again this week. Sweating at work or taking care of your family or working out too much or worrying about all the things. Or if you’ve had a more relaxing week, you’ve been worrying that you haven’t done enough.

Black Bean Nachos Grandes are great as an appetizer, a light meal, or a simple accompaniment to salads and grain dishes. Use natural stone-ground organic tortilla chips for best results. Delicious served with your favor salsa and, if you’d like, some guacamole. (via vegkitchen.com)
We use the word “steak” quite loosely here, but what an awesome way to announce your veganism to the world, by calling a slice of cauliflower a steak! You can grill this outside on the barbecue or indoors on a grill pan. The recipe also works well if you cut the cauliflower into florets and roast them in a single layer on a sheet pan.

I love making smoothies. I love beets. I think it’s time I check out this. Doesn’t it look tasty?! (alessandra-veganblog.blogspot.com)
The other day, someone said to me, “I don’t like curry, so I never eat Indian food.” Indian food is so much more than curry… Indian food may be my favorite ethnic cuisine. My wife Jane makes a great Chana Masala. This dish looks even better. (Don’t tell Jane.) I’ll have to see about getting this recipe into the mix. (via holycowvegan.net)
And we will end with something really, really sweet….
Wow! Wow! Wow! Jane makes a killer chocolate mousse. It is always a crowd-pleaser. I especially like the reaction from omnivores. Invariably, after the first bite, we hear, “this is vegan?!” It’s primarily just two ingredients: silken tofu and melted chocolate, plus a little alcohol if you like. That desert is wonderful, but just take a look at this. Makes your mouth water, doesn’t it?! The recipe doesn’t look all the much harder than Jane’s mousse. (via kblog.lunchboxbunch.com)
