VeganMoFo: Top 5 Yellow Rose Recipes

I’m elbow deep in zines, so I didn’t make anything today. I ate spaghetti with leftover sauce from last night and some oreos and that’s it. So I decided to do my top 5 favorite recipes from the upcoming Yellow Rose Recipes! These are in no particular order.

1. Guacamole – I had never made my own guacamole before, but this stuff knocks the pants, shirt, shoes, and granny panties off of store bought guac. When you get the book I recommend at least doubling the recipe if more than one person is eating it, because I was able to devour an entire batch in one day. The picture to the right has pita chips, but it’s really good on sandwiches too. Or a spoon. I’d probably eat cardboard if it was smothered with this stuff.

2. Refried Black Beans – Normally, refried beans make me sick. I don’t know why, and it’s not because I accidentally eat lard-filled beans because it happens with the canned vegetarian kind too. A few months ago I ate a Burrito As Big As My Head and hurfed it back up less than 20 minutes later. Pleasant story, eh? Anyway, I really liked these because I didn’t feel sick and I really love black beans and wish that everyone would use this instead of standard refried beans.

3. Minty Summer Fruit Salad – It’s a damn shame that this book is coming out in the late fall, because you’ll have to wait a good six months to try this salad. There’s not a lot to say, there’s lots of fresh berries and mint and pure yum. And yes, I set the bowl on top of a block of tofu. It’s not gonna press itself!

4. Oatmeal Cookies – I used to have a really good oatmeal cookie recipe when I was younger. Soft, but not super puffy. Full of raisins. I’ve tried a lot of different recipes over the years to try and find a similar recipe, but no such luck. Not a problem any more, because these cookies are so dead on.

5. Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna – One of the few recipes I tested that took a lot of time to make, but it was more than worth it. Obviously, you roast a squash. Then there’s a homemade white sauce, and tofu ricotta…i’m getting hungry just thinking about it. The best part is, I was able to feed it to my tomato sauce and green vegetable hating husband!

  • Not to be nosy, but do you think you might be allergic to pinto beans? That might explain the hurfing.
