Another cookbook we've added to our collection recently is The Convenient Vegetarian by Virginia Messina and Kate Schumann. I'd never heard of it and I might not've sought it out and/or bought it new but we happened upon it at a used book store last week and it was $3.50 so we figured we'd give it a shot. It's all vegan and is mostly all about quick and easy meals. This spinach recipe came together quickly with onions & garlic, frozen spinach, silken tofu, veg. broth, sun-dried tomatoes and a few seasonings. We had it over cous cous with some toast on the side and it was quite good. It'd also be good with pasta. This came from the "planover" section of the book, which is about taking a basic recipe then making a new meal on another night from the leftovers. So what would you do with leftover creamed spinach? We'll be taking a cue from this book and incorporating the leftovers into another meal soon so stay tuned.
