Happy Herbivore's Chana Palak Masala

Happy Friday!  Did I mention that I finally got my copy of The Happy Herbivore in the mail the other day?  If not, I did...YAY.  I just saw where Lindsay posted on facebook that Amazon is almost sold out of her cookbook again.  I can see why it goes so fast.  It's loaded with great recipes.  I can already tell you that this cookbook will be used very often, and I have a very strong feeling that it is going to be my favorite.  Heck, I even thought about pulling a Julie and Julia with it.  :o)  Every recipe in it sounds awesome.  If you don't have this cookbook, you should really get it.

I made Lindsay's Chana Palak Masala last night for supper.  This was a very fast and easy meal to put together.   I think it took 30 minutes from start to finish, and that included chopping the onion and garlic.  It looks like most of the recipes in her cookbook are very simple.  There's not a lot of ingredients that you've (I've) never heard of, which I LOVE!   The Chana Palak Masala was exceptional!   It was made up of canned tomatoes, chickpeas, fresh spinach, veggie broth, onion, garlic and some spices.   Very yummy!

I hope you have a GREAT weekend!  I hope to be planting some veggies and flowers this weekend.  :o)

  2. I might have to check this one out. I like that it has low & fat free recipes!

  3. Nice try, but I'm not buyin' it! Pretty dinner though.

  4. That's awesome you got the book! I haven't tried this recipe yet but seeing your pictures, I want to! When you want to have a real treat, make the Queso Sauce. It may be my favorite recipe, but warning that it's hard not to eat the entire recipe at once!

  5. Have fun with the recipes. I look forward to seeing what you make.

  6. I love easy recipes - prep and chopping seems to take up so much of my time. Hope you are having a great weekend!

  7. Looks like a great book, look forward to more recipes on you blog then!!

    Happy Sunday!


  8. this looks really yummy. I have to confess, I purchased Happy Herbivore as soon as it was published and haven't really cracked it open. It would be CRAZY fun if you went all Julie and Julia on it! Please do! Please do!!!!!!
