Vegan MoFo Day 4 (for me) - Lemons
On our weekend trip to SLO, we collected a huge bag of lemons from my Aunt and Uncle's crazy lemon tree. It seems to always have lemons, no matter what time of year we are visiting, and lots of them. Athena loved helping fill up the bag with our freshly picked lemons. So, now we are home and I've already gone through 6 lemons. Now, what to do with the rest? What do you do with lemons when they are in such abundance? Here are my top lemony recipes, feel free to share your own since I may need a few more ideas:
1. Lemon Garlic Pasta from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan. Don't forget to double the recipe and cook some seitan with it.
2. Lemonade with stevia from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.
3. Random raw sandwich filling. Today I used the juice of 3 lemons, a mixture of sunflower seeds, pepitas, and walnuts, 2 celery stalks, 1/3 of a red pepper, flax oil, and coconut oil. Pretty tasty and filling.
4. Hummus, of course. I've been making the hummus from Veganomicon, and I actually thought most hummus was created equal. Wow, I was sure wrong because this stuff turns out better than any standard hummus I've made.
