Last week was probably one of our best week’s yet for sticking to our meal plan. Surprise hits were the ginger-scallion noodles with tofu and the seitan stir-fry, which Rick gobbled up like I’ve never seen him gobble up seitan before. The other big hit was the one-pot salmon with snap peas which ended up being Rick’s dish to cook, so I guess Rick is really acclimatizing to my penchant for Asian flavours.
The sweet potato burgers were also consumed without much protest, but I think the fact that I let him put bacon on them helped with that. Actually, if you’ve not strictly veg, I would highly recommend the addition of bacon. That smoky-crunchy hit rounds out the creamy avocado and soft-sweet burger patty absolutely perfectly.
