Here is how he dressed himself to "brave the weather":
It was 65 degrees Farenheit. Brrr
So as promised, here is the Vegan Lasagna I mentioned yesterday:
As I said, this is literally the most time-consuming lasagna recipe the world has ever know. It IS really good though and I would have to say that yes, it was worth the effort. Just don't start it like right before dinnertime because you'll end up ordering take-out.
Basically it's whole wheat noodles, layered with tomato sauce, a mashed sweet potato layer, a thawed frozen spinach layer and then a crumbled tofu-vegetable layer containing onions, garlic, mushrooms, carrots, corn, broccoli, bell peppers and lots of fresh herbs. Is there a vegetable NOT in this lasagna? I think not. The top is covered with freshly sliced tomatoes and then ground raw cashews which make such a fragrant, delicious smell when they are baking and really do give a convincing parmesan-ish taste and texture to the top.
The gray weather made me sleepy (or maybe it was the giant trembling Labrador Retriever wedged under my bed all night who I clearly should have named Thunderphobia?) Anyway, I made myself a pot of fresh Chai and drank the entire thing.
4 cups water
1 T black tea
1 cinnamon stick
6 green cardamom pods
1 tsp fennel seeds
3 black peppercorns
pinch ground cloves
Boil everything together 5-7 minutes. Then add:
2 cups non-dairy milk (I used oat milk as in the picture)
2 tsps maple syrup or to taste
Boil a bit more, strain and drink. Yum.
Lastly, I am really bothered by the lack of a spell check button. Do I have like a ton of spelling mistakes each post?? How can there be a blog platform without a spell check? It used to be here and now it's gone. What the heck?
