March MiniMoFo

Hi everyone! “Go green!” is the theme for the March MiniMoFo, and all the new recipes I’ve tried so far this month have included spinach – Brown Rice With Lentils, Mushrooms, and Spinach Stir Fry (AfroVeganChick); Marinated Tofu with White Rice and Spinach; and Creamy Raw Spinach Sauce (Vegan Vittles). This week I tried making the creamy spinach dip from Vegan Vittles, but it didn’t quite work out (*shakes fist at my food processor*), so I gave up and just threw all the ingredients into a saucepan with a bit of water, heating it up and mashing the beans as I stirred, ultimately mixing it in with some fettuccine. So, both a recipe fail (didn’t work as the dip it was supposed to be) and a recipe redemption (was very tasty mixed with pasta). 


Cringer loves using her sister as a pillow…



Peace. :)

  1. That's great that you were able to re-purpose the dip into a pasta sauce! It looks great and I bet it was so tasty. Kitty snuggles!! I love so much!

  3. Kitty pillows are the best pillows!
    Again I missed MiniMofo. I kind of tried to sneak one in at the very last minute on Instagram, though it was a green smoothie that was more brown than green. Oh well, I will try again for April!

  4. I love discovering ways to salvage failed recipes and your pasta sounds really good! Your other green meals look great too, especially that lentil dish. And aww, the cuddling kitties are adorable. :)
