Once again, the magic of mashed turnips and sauteed turnip greens. Crazy. And a big batch of kale chips of awesomeness. I wonder if my new mizuna "trick" will work on rabe, too. May give it a try. [ETA: It does! Awesome!]

Meanwhile, two of the butternuts turned into an awesome soup and last week's pumpkins gave themselves up for the honor of being kaddo bourani. Not a healthy dish by a long shot, but wow, that's good stuff. It was less work than the cassoulet, but took more time because it sits in the oven for over three hours. And now I have a jar of pumpkin syrup which makes for some nice soda.

Pictures! (&recipe info)

Recipe from Helmand in Cambridge via SFGate.com. I veganized, of course, so the major mod was TVP in place of the ground beef. I also made some minor mods based on what I had around.

This was off-the-cuff as usual. I roasted the squashen, sauteed leeks and celery, added the squash mush along with some stock and water. Also added some curry powder and cumin (and of course salt). Blended the whole thing. Lastly, I mixed in some lite coconut milk.

(So what do you think about spoiler tag versus cut tag?)

I like the spoiler tag. It allows readers to look at comments without looking at the material that is being cut.

What's in that topping for the kaddo?

I just added a recipe link, so it's basically that, except I used TVP in place of the ground beef.

I like the spoiler tag. Also, THAT KADDO BOURANI IS SCREEN LICKING GOOD. And I just jotted the recipe. I bet I could use nuts instead of the beef (I dn't like TVP)

I am not much of a fan of TVP (though I think it works in certain circumstances) which is why I still had the remainder of an old package in the house, so I used it. :) I think Lightlight crumbles or Gimme Lean or any number of other options would probably work better. It was still really good, though. (And actually the "meat sauce" was even better a couple of days later.)

Spoiler tag? I guess friends' posts aren't the only thing I need to catch up on!
