Mr. Potato Pants

022

For supper I had the chickpea patty from Veganomicon with Road’s End shiitake gravy and some steamed broccoli. And yeah, some fingerling potatoes (steamed, then finished in the oven with a little olive oil, smoked salt, and black pepper). The gravy was a Thanksgiving tester (from a packet) and although it’s better than anything I’ve made before, I’m tempted to try my hand at something truly homemade after reading what Tofu Mom has been up to this month. 

This potato is nothing, though, compared to the Ten Naughtiest Vegetables from the Organic Authority. No, it’s not quite like the dirty dozen.

  1. Ha, I love that potato...you're right, also fairly tame compared to those other naughty veggies...very funny!

    Your dinner sounds perfectly satisfying; I love the photo too: how you highlight the taters and the rest is background.

    Tofu Mom's recipes rock! She's totally on the gravy train this month for sure!

  6. That was a crazy looking potato. I find odd looking veggies interesting too though I don't know why.

  7. dirtyduck, I am from Tennessee. I called it supper because it was a quick meal. Usually I talk about dinner as a bigger deal (Thanksgiving dinner, etc.)

    Yes, I ate the leg first! This was fun.
