In my kitchen

I had a lot of fun in the kitchen last week, playing with the new blender and trying a few new recipes.

Raw Cashew Dip

Spicy Shiitake Mushroom Roll

Tortilla soup from VitaMix cookbook

Notes on last week's recipes:
Portobello and Zucchini Tacos - We really liked the mushrooms and zucchini by themselves but the tacos were bland. We used vegan Daiya mozzerella cheese and it didn't add much flavor.
Garlic Sesame Soba Noodles - Fantastic! Definitely a keeper recipe.
Raw Cashew Dip - We've discovered we don't like plain hummus. I'm sure the recipe was good; it just wasn't to our taste preferences.
Spicy Shiitake Mushroom Roll - FANTASTIC! This was the overwhelming favorite from last week (pictured above). It was so good, I am making it again tonight.

New recipes to try this week:
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Roasted Chickpea Tacos - carryover from last week
5 Minute Wrap
Crispy Fried Tofu with Sweet Chille Sauce - for Judy's What's Cooking challenge.

This post will be linked with Menu Plan Monday.

I like my hummus with lots of garlic :) Roasted Tomato is currently my favorite, and it's so quick and easy to make :) :) I would love your recipe for the rolls! ((HUGS)) Shana
