Look Lindsay Nixon, I know you have a husband and all. But I really think we should get married anyway. I assume this means that you would cook delicious fat-free meals for me every night, right? If so, let's get hitched!
Yes, I just proposed to the author of Happy Herbivore. Since she's spoken for, I may have to keep dreaming. But maybe I can just marry her book. I would settle for that. Why am I so very enamored with Lindsay and her recipes? Here's why — Spicy Greens with Spicy Sausage:
It's simple really. Just Lindsay's homemade spicy steamed sausages (made in the Julie Hasson way) sliced up in collards with red pepper flakes, onion, garlic, and hot sauce. But as a Southern girl, I've never been all that crazy about collards that weren't cooked for at least 40 minutes. I've tried the quick-cook methods, but they always leave something to be desired. For some reason, Lindsay's simple preparation is just as tasty as if the greens simmered on a stove for hours. And there's no oil! Just blows my mind, really.
Did you notice that sexy macaroni peeking in the background? Yep, that's a Happy Herbivore recipe too. There's two variations on vegan mac & cheeze in the book — one is baked and the other is made on the stovetop. As a former fan of boxed macaroni and cheese, I opted for the latter — Easy Macaroni & Cheese:
It's made with Lindsay's creamy-as-hell vegan noochy sauce. Ridiculously good, y'all.
