It's been too long since we've had this great recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance. I'd been thinking about making it for a couple weeks and today I finally found the time. We've had it with mashed potatoes before but this time we took Isa's suggestion and had it with her coconut rice (only with brown rice). Also on the side are some collards that I've been meaning to do something with since I got them at the market last weekend. That's the thing about buying things fresh from the farmers' market - they've just been picked and they'll often keep in the fridge for a week. As for cooking the greens, we've tried various methods but tonight they came out really good with just a little onion and garlic and Spike seasoning. We'd never tried the Spike before but we had some excellent greens at the Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival recently and we asked the woman at the booth how she made them. For one thing she used a wide variety of greens, but she also put us on to the Spike seasoning and I have to say, that stuff's pretty good. We found it in our local mainstream grocery store so I would think it's pretty widely available.
