Just Another Meatless Monday #52 Giveaway Post

Hey What's For Dinner



It's time to celebrate, I've been hosting Just Another Meatless Monday for 52 weeks! An entire year of inspirational meatless meals from around the world. I love the friends I have made and all the delicious recipes that have come my way. To celebrate I decided to have a little giveaway. There was a hint in yesterday's post:

Did you figure it out? Yes, I'm giving away and brand new copy of one of my favorite cookbooks of all time, the Moosewood Cookbook. It is full of vegetarian recipes for all cooking abilities and it will inspire you again and again. I love this book, which is why I bought it for the giveaway. To be entered to win you MUST:
  • be a follower and
  • blog roll Hey What's For Dinner Mom? and
  • link up a recipe to this post
Do all three and you will be entered to win the cookbook. Multiple entries of past recipes will be accepted. I'd really like to hit at least 52 recipes this week! I'm also working on getting Mollie to sign the book for you, we'll see how that pans out.

This week I made this very simple and delicious Curry Sauce, it reminds me of the Curry Sauce in Bridget Jones' Diary, at least in the way it looks. I served it over hot brown rice, it was so good I wish I had made more rice so we could have eaten more of the sauce. As it is, I have the leftovers tucked away in the fridge for a some wonderful leftovers later this week.

Curry Sauce
2 TBSP good cooking oil
1 TBSP butter
1/2 a large sweet onion, chopped
2 TBSP curry powder**more or less depending on how you like it
1/2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
1 cup vegetable broth
1 13 1/2 ounce can coconut milk
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
dash of fish sauce
salt and pepper to taste

heat the oil and butter over medium low heat in a 10 inch skillet
when melted and warmed add the onion and cook until soft and translucent about 10 minutes, don't brown them
add the curry powder and ginger stir for 30 seconds
add the broth and stir, scraping up and crispy bits
add the coconut milk and whisk to incorporate
cook until reduced by half
add the basil and fish sauce cook for two minutes more
strain through a sieve
add salt and pepper to taste if desired
serve over rice, bulgar, french fries(!), baked potatoes or anything else that needs a dash of delicious







Oh and I will be checking to make sure the chosen winner has followed the directions, if they haven't I'll draw a new winner.

Peace and Love--

  2. All three things...done (blogroll is my linklove tab at the top of my page). This is such a great giveaway, Laura...I've been cooking with Moosewood often lately and I don't have this particular book. Thanks for the chance!

  5. Thanks for the link up. Congrats on one year - can't believe this is the first week that I've been here, but glad to have found you anyways. Will try to stop by and share (and read!) each week.
    The curry sauce sounds good. I love all the inventive stuff those Moosewood cooks come up with - I've never had anything bad out of one of those books! :)
    Have a great week, see you next Monday! :)

  10. If I win, could you give it to someone local to you with my compliments, please? I already have it, and that'll make a smaller carbon footprint than your mailing it to me to give away. (Note: Yes, this means I did all three things just because I love your blog, not because I wanted to win. :-)
