Eggplant Pancakes Part II

This is the final night for the theme this week, food that is round. The eggplant pancakes make a reappearance. I had planed to have them with some pizza sauce and homemade vegan parmesan cheese, but had to change plans when the pizza sauce came up moldy. So I went to plan B, which was some more of the sweet chili sauce from my refrigerator. Yeah, still trying to use that up as well. And on the sides are steamed corn and the cauliflower with Gee Whiz cheese sauce. The chili sauce worked really well with the eggplant pancakes, even though they are Italian flavored. For some reason, after sitting in the refrigerator for a few days, really dampened the herbs flavors. Or the chili sauce was just so strong that I couldn’t taste anything else. Just a simple dinner tonight to use up some things in the refrigerator for next week.

Tomorrow I am going to give you my review of Coconut Bliss ice cream, since dinner will be nothing new. And next week, I may have pizza since the only decent rice based vegan cheese (or so I understand) has finally made it to my neck of the woods. That would be VeganRella. I have checked, as much as I can; they have very little web presence; and it is not only soy free but also may be gluten free. The store I shop at this weekend had some the last time I was there and hopefully they still do, or I will be most unhappy because it will be at least a week until I can get some of it then. The other store around here that carries it is in Clearwater, but I am only close by when the oil gets changed in my car. And that will be one week from Saturday. So if no pizza next week, then pizza in two weeks.

See you tomorrow.

  1. I like the look of that dinner, I was just talking about how I don't ever buy and cook eggplant today, maybe I should!
