I got it! A copy of Veganomicon is finally in my possession. It's already covered in post-it-note bookmarks.
My very first recipe was not a dessert. Gasp! I know!
I decided to make the Pumpkin Baked Ziti with Caramelized Onions. And it was a wonderful choice, as you can imagine. I wish I wouldn't have gotten lazy and skipped the homemade bread crumbs for the top, though. But hey, it did involve making a batch of cashew ricotta. The cashew ricotta was a nice, rich version of ricotta. I will probably cut back on the lemon juice a bit next time though, because I think it was a bit too strong in the dish for my taste. Feast your eyes on the delicious dish in a mediocre photography format:
We paired the ziti with steamed kale seasoned with red pepper flakes.
Ken wants to make the Veganomicon Pound Cake tonight. How exciting!
