I have long been a fan of the Skinny Bitch empire. Kim and Rory are crude-ass, potty-mouth bitches on a mission to veganize the world. And seeing as how I'm pretty vulgar myself, their approach is right up my alley. So needless to say, I have all their books and exercise videos (I even have that silly Skinny Bitch journal that I never use). So of course, I asked for Kim Barnouin's Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook for Xmas! But I got so many books for Xmas, I'm just now getting around to cooking from it.
The glossy full-color, hardback is full of mouth-watering, healthy vegan recipes. But I'm always a sucker for a simple pasta dish, and this Spaghetti with Spinach in a White Wine Garlic Sauce was begging to be made:
It may not be all that pretty, but it was damn good. The sauce is made from olive oil, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, garlic, white wine, and vegan parm. The wine was Orleans Hill Alexandria, an organic, vegan white blend I purchased at my favorite vegan-friendly wine shop, The Corkscrew.
I served this with a big ole green salad topped with fresh corn, carrots, bacon bits, and Italian dressing. Washed down with more white wine, of course. You have to make use of the rest of the bottle or it will go bad, right? ;-)
What sort of recipes do you gravitate toward when you break open a new cookbook?
