Homestyle dinner

Last night I felt like making a simple, homestyle kind of meal. I was home in the afternoon, so I threw a pot of beans (pink beans and white baby lima beans) on the stove and simmered for a few hours. Even though I hadn’t presoaked them, they turned out fine. Near the end, I added a few diced up Tofurkey franks. I also made some fried potatoes, with cajun seasoning.

I wanted to make some kind of zucchini patties, but couldn’t find a good recipe. So I improvised one, and it turned out fine– but the taste wasn’t quite right. I’m not sure how I would change it, but it definitely needed something else. I used grated zucchini, carrots, and tofu, along with some salt, pepper, nutritional yeast, and Spike vegetable seasoning. I added just enough chickpea flour (the only kind of flour I have on hand right now) to be able to soak up some of the moisture and hold it together. I fried it in olive oil, and served it on top of pea shoots (yum, crunchy!). I think maybe next time I would add some paprika, or garlic salt, or something… it was just lacking somehow.
