One pot fajita pasta.


In celebration of falling victim to my first Pinterest fail, I've prepared a no-fucking-fail one-pot pasta dish that feeds six.

Ingredients I
3 1/2 cups water
1 x 28oz can crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp sriracha
1/4 cup oil

Ingredients II
16oz pasta
1 cup bell peppers, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 red onion, sliced
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper

In a large pot, bring to a boil all of Ingredients I. Slowly incorporate all of Ingredients II. Stir slowly, and often, while this cooks through in 12-15 minutes.

Thanksgiving poutine.


Rough on the eyes, easy on the belly.

Ingredients
French fries

1/2 cup cranberries
3/4 cup / 10 brussel sprouts
1/2 cup chopped turkey-seitan (homemade seitan, Field Roast, Tofurkey, etc)
2 tbsp white sugar

Mozzarella style shreds - I used Daiya

3/4 cup brown gravy



Bake fries as directed. Prepare your gravy and set aside.

In a frying pan, sautee cranberries,brussel sprouts, and seitan. Sprinkle the sugar on, and squish the cranberries once they're cooked through enough to do so.

Once the fries are done, layer the sauteed mixture, cheese, and pour the gravy on top.



Minestrone.


Easy peasy minestrone soup recipe. Maybe a little sad I'm posting a recipe for this, but maybe you forgot all about making a vat of soup on the cheap.

2 carrots, peeled + sliced
6 stalks celery, sliced
2 zucchini, sliced
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 onions, chopped
40 oz canned diced tomatoes
15 oz canned, drained white kidney beans
1 cup mini shell pasta
2 litres (~8 cups) water
1 tsp basil 
2 tbsp oregano
Celery salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Bring water to a boil. Stir in tomato paste and tomatoes. Add in everything but the shell pasta. 10 minutes before serving, add in the shell pasta and serve when the pasta is cooked to your liking. Be prepared to add a little more water, if the starchiness of the pasta soaks up a heap of the liquid.
