My muffins went wrong and so did some cookies and both went in the bin - baked goods have to be seriously pants to go in the bin in this household so that tells you how epicly (word??) I failed!! I had another go at the muffins with some tweaks and they're still not right, however they're at least edible - just not postworthy!
I was walking round the supermarket last week and I found a bottle of Reggae Reggae Sauce. Now I didn't know much about this stuff, except that subway do a really gross looking sandwich (that I LOVE the advert for! Hence post title) with it in and I think the guy who invented it was on Dragons' Den. Anyways, it is a sauce that is a cross between barbecue and jerk seasoning and it is GOOD! Plus it's vegan. So I basted some thick wodges of tofu with it and baked it along with some roasted veg (and a salad made of the last of the cherry tomatoes) and it was seriously rockin!! Hot hot!
Today I had this great idea to make some VCON chickpea cutlets, but I didn't have any chickpeas. And my copy of VCON is at work cuz someone is copying recipes. So I decided to wing it with some sweetcorn patties - with some Reggae Reggae sauce in them! They are not quite right but I think they have potential so I'll post the recipe when I get it right.
I served them with some maple & ginger roasted carrots, peas and some white bean mash (AWESOME stuff).
This soup was inspired by my current love of Jerk spice. It is black bean, brown rice & sweet potato soup with a big kick from jerk seasoning. It's not very photogenic I know, but it is super warming and filling (and ace with crusty bread). I still think it needs tweaking though so I'm holding off posting the recipe for now.
And I'm not feeling any more grown up cuz tonight, all I really wanted to do was watch daft films and eat cookies. I saw Becks' post about Dreena Burton's cookies and they looked so good that I had to make them too. With my baking failures this week, I've been feeling a bit like I've lost my mojo, but hurrah - a success. Unfortunately not my recipe but these are damn good cookies, nonetheless. I just wish I wasn't dieting so I could pig the whole friggin batch instead of just one!!
Oh and I nearly forgot - Happy Thanksgiving American bloggers & bloggettes! xXx
