Samosa Stuffed Baked Potatoes
I don't think I've ever used a cookbook as frequently as I use Veganomicon. It actually surprises me, since my M.O. is to buy tons of vegan cookbooks, read them like novels, and return them to my cookbook shelf until it's time to re-read them (and, believe me, I re-read them often). In any case, Monday night, I decided to make the Samosa Stuffed Baked Potatoes. I added extra carrots and omitted the onion, used 3 garlic cloves instead of 2, and added the juice of 1 tiny lemon instead of 1/2 of a lemon. I confess that I let some of the carrots burn while I was hollowing out my potato halves, but I didn't mind. I packaged up the stuffed potatoes for this week's lunches with a side of plain peas (and my requisite red grapefruit) and was a happy girl. These are really wonderful and my co-workers keep wondering what smells so good after I'm done using the microwave. ;)
Please excuse the terrible photo; my camera eats rechargeable batteries like crazy, so I took this with my cell phone.
