{Today’s Lunchbox} Accidental Cookies

by Valerie on February 3, 2011 · 2 comments

Wednesday Lunchbox

Today’s lunch and two snacks:

  • Leftover vegan white bean gratin and raddichio salad
  • Kale and banana smoothie with cinnamon
  • Spicy bean dip with quinoa crackers

The crackers really should be called accidental cookies.  I made them from leftover quinoa and sweet potato, and used coconut oil and chia seeds and sea salt to bind and season them.  Upon tasting them, I realized I could have just added some stevia and probably ended up with something completely dessert-like, instead of ambiguously sweet.  That said these crackers work well with the spicy bean dip.

The white bean gratin was a veganized version of a recipe I saw in this month’s Vegetarian Times (see here for a copy of the recipe).  I made the recipe vegan and gluten-free with several substitutions an adaptations, and also reduced the oil in the recipe quite a bit. I will be sharing the recipe this week, but right now, all I can think of is time with my planner and journal so as soon as this lunchbox is posted, I am off for some reflective time.
