Eggplant Bacon - yeah you heard me

The Ceasar Salad with eggplant bacon was a total success - i can't print the recipe cos it's from a cookbook (Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz) but basically slices of eggplant were baked with flavorings to make it bacony like soy sauce & liquid smoke, then a dressing called Ceasar Chavez Dressing was made using amazing things like cashews & miso & lemon juice. De-effin-licious

I made the Spaghetti Squash  using the recipe that came with the Greenling Local Box - roasted with olive oil salt & pepper. Then sauted shallot (had some STILL leftover from a box a couple of weeks ago) & garlic & red pepper flakes. When the squash is ready, fork scrape it into the spaghetti, add to pan with onion & garlic and toss, serve with fresh basil & vegan parmesan - i also added some shredded follow your heart vegan mozzerella. Ummmmm i ate the whole squash... that should give a hint into how it was :)

I didn't make the okra & greens recipe mentioned in the last post - the sweet potato greens kinda looked like they needed to be used fast so i sauteed them up with some garlic and used them in these black bean tacos. I also sliced up one of the peppers, they were pale yellow and therefore very mild, so they added a delicious fresh crunch to the tacos!

The okra i roasted again, it really is just too delicious and easy.
