... to make Snobby Joes from the Veganomicon:
Well, maybe not the very last ... but definitely toward the bottom of the list. For those who don't know, the Snobby Joe is the Isa and Terry version of a sloppy joe. Instead of using tofu or TVP (like many vegan sloppy joe recipes), these call for lentils seasoned with chili powder, diced green pepper, onion, garlic, and a bit of maple syrup.
It's the maple that really sets the taste apart. They're not at all sweet, as you might expect using maple syrup. Instead, the maple brings out the hearty chili flavor.
I served the sandwich open-faced on two halves of a sprouted grain bun, alongside these Roasted Garlic Potatoes:
I actually bought these new potatoes at the farmer's market about two months ago. But they stayed fresh in my Debbie Meyer Green Bags, which purport to keep produce crisp far past the date.
I quartered the potatoes, tossed with a bit of olive oil, chopped garlic, and Sonny Salt (a locally-produced seasoning blend) and roasted them on 500 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes.
