After yesterday's raw food detox, I was hella craving some mashed potatoes and gravy today. In fact, I literally drooled over Jesse's mashed potato and tempeh post on Happy Vegan Face last night. So today, I finally tried the Mashed Potatoes with Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy from Vegan with a Vengeance:
Also on my plate are Granny's Rape Greens with Turnips (thawed out from the freezer) and a Gardenburger Chik'n Grill Patty (that I also ended up smothering with punk rock gravy).
If you haven't tried the chickpea gravy yet, I can't even begin to tell you how good it is. I seriously could have eaten a bowl full of the gravy by itself. But it was wonderful on the mashed skin-on potatoes (I like mine a bit chunky, as you can see ... no whipped taters for me).
As for the greens, my Granny makes the best greens ever! She usually uses rape greens (although sometimes she cooks turnip greens instead). I've never seen rape greens in stores, but she always picks hers from a friend's garden. They seem to have a milder taste than turnip greens. She also tends to throw in chunks of fresh turnip. Super yummy!
