In honor of US VegWeek, I am going to try to post something each day this week in the hope that it will help inspire you to participate in VegWeek. Wait – you’re not sure what VegWeek is? It’s really quite simple: it’s a week (starting today) during which people commit to eating veg for one week. For more info, check this out:
Okay, now that you’re up to speed and on board, here’s what I have to offer today:
Queenie has dubbed this plate of food “Sweet Potato Fluff and Smoky Collards,” and you can call it that, too, if you’d like. It’s really two recipes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero’s Veganomicon, a book you need to get your hands on if you haven’t already. If you have it, turn to page 111 for the “Mashed Spiced Sweet Potatoes” and to page 106 for the “Sauteed Collards.” If you don’t have it, know that the concept is sweet potatoes flavored with pumpkin pie spices and collards flavored with smoke and garlic (now go get the book!). Here’s where the magic happens: put the two together! Oh my. SOOOOOO good. We’ve been eating this a lot lately and are nowhere close to getting sick of it yet.
