Yesterday I Made:
SAMOSA MASHED POTATO PANCAKES, TOASTED QUINOA WITH RAISINS AND SLIVERED ALMONDS AND GOOD OLD FASHIONED PEAS for DINNER.
Samosa recipe from VEGAN BRUNCH.
Toasted quinoa recipe from THE VEGAN TABLE.
Samosas filling without the dough, formed into cakes and lightly panfried.
The filling is basically mashed potatoes with onions, carrots, garlic, peas.
Spiced with mustard seeds, turmeric, cumin, red chili pepper flakes, and fresh ginger.
You make the dough, refrigerate for a few hours and form into patties, then panfry.
I didn't make a sauce or chutney to go with the samosas, as suggested in the book.
Instead I used chipotle sauce and drizzled it over the pancakes.
The toasted quinoa turned out to be the perfect side dish.
Seasoned with fresh ginger, cardomom, coriander, cumin, and cayenne.
And for added crunch and sweetness, raisins and slivered almonds were added to the mix.
As far as the peas, all I did was steam frozen peas with 1/4 cup water for 3 minutes.
Drained and added Earth Balance, salt and pepper.
