Top Ten Dinner

I hope you have seen the post by Erik Marcus at Vegan.com for his Top Ten Recipes of 2008. For our Sunday dinner I prepared 4½ of them. It goes without saying that they are all incredibly delicious, so I will let the pictures speak for themselves.


Nearly Instant Thai Coconut Corn Soup
Nava Atlas – Vegan Express




Chickpea Curry
Hema Parekh – The Asian Vegan Kitchen




Indonesian Coconut Rice
Robin Robertson – Vegan Fire & Spice

Plated with mixed steamed veggies with Balsamic Maple Sauce
Dreena Burton – Eat Drink & Be Vegan






Banana Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding
Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero – Veganomicon




The soup is dreamy, creamy, and corny.

The chickpeas are spicy and amazing. (Amanda, you will LOVE these!)

The coconut rice is easy to make and delicious. Dreena’s sauce over the veggies was the perfect sweet complement to our spicy dishes.

The bread pudding is also super easy to make and so tasty. I served it with a peanut sauce.


Please visit Vegan.com for all Top Ten recipes and get cookin’!

Wow! You tried so many! They all look yummy! And it's good to have a review too (I've been eyeing off that coconut rice since vegan.com posted the recipes!)

VEGAN TICKLES said...

The bread pudding looks pretty enticing.
Hope to try it soon.
Great pics.
You made every dish look better than the next.

VeggieGirl said...

I read that list of Top 10 recipes - great mix of foods and cooks/bakers on there! I LOVE how you tried a lot of the recipes - especially the bread pudding (which I have had my eye on - yum!)

I had not seen the post with the top ten recipes, but I’m going to check it out now. Oh my God, that bread pudding looks *to-die-for*

It all looks so amazing! I am going to check out the rest of the recipes for sure! Thanks for the link and the photos!

healthyceliac said...

Thanks for coming and visiting my site! All your food looks amazing :)
What gluten-free bread did you use in the bread pudding? I'm always looking for that amazing loaf of gluten-free, vegan bread. I know it has to be out there somewhere!

ChocolateCoveredVegan said...

Hehe your mom sounds a lot like my own mom. I asked her how many puddings I should order (I was thinking of ordering 30), and she said, "You may never see them again, so I'd order 200!"

Edie said...

Everything looks so yummy, I've earmarked a few of the recipes (all except the bread pudding - never been a huge fan of bread pudding).

By the way, I agree with Chase. I love saucy foods.

Happy Herbivore! said...

your4 vcon pudding looks beautiful!

and you make me want to eat everything else, too!

you are such a good photographer/cook!

aTxVegn said...

Thanks for the nice comments about my photography. I'm surprised since I took these myself before Chase even came over! The bread pudding is realllllly good!

healthyC - I used Whole Foods gf burger buns!

Teddy - Yay! I'll email you.

jd said...

Mmm... every single one of those dishes looks deee-lectable!

Thanks for the link to the Top Ten Recipes of '08, too :)

bazu said...

So that makes it official- you just made and ate the best dinner in the world! my mouth is watering- the steamed veggies, the bread pudding, the coconut soup... oh my!

Urban Vegan said...

Must have been hard to choose just 10. The only one I've made is the Nearly Instant Soup--and I can attest to its brilliance!

Your versions look professional and mouth-watering, as always.

Erin said...

What a great looking meal. You must be an amazing multi-tasker to handle 4 1/2 recipes for one meal. One recipe is enough to flummox me for over an hour so I always keep everything else simple.

Liz² said...

I want to try that banana bread pudding soooo badly now! I *love* how you plated it!

Ashasarala said...

You know, you take some great pictures. I'm gonna have to jump on the band wagon and say 'My, that bread pudding looks amazing!'

Everything definitely looks like top 10 material, I would say. :)

On a different note, I am sorry I've been so out of the loop lately. I completely lost touch with all these awesome blogs due to studio recording and moving to a new department at my job. But I just wanted to say that I am deeply sorry to hear about your father. I know how hard it is. I lost my mother unexpectedly a year ago and it's definitely a tough time. If you ever need anything, I am here. ::hugs::

I can't believe you made these all for one meal! I bow down at your awesomeness. And since they're all "Top 10" recipes, it must have been one amazing meal.

And a dessert peanut sauce?! Oh wow, that sounds like my kind of thing! I need to try the bread pudding recipe, though, with or without peanut sauce. Mmm!

Oh I am so wanting to eat those chickpeas, you know me too well :-)

And I still can't get over the color of your cabbage!!

Syn* said...

HEY! I just made that coconut Thai soup... mymommy and I made it on mothers day:) It really is delish!!!!

iwilltransform said...

Wow very nice food pictures. Makes me hungry for some vegetables -that can never be a bad thing.

I just started blogging about my diet (only on day 4) to help myself feel accountable. I am not too used to eating vegetables as the main course -but this site is helping.

Thanks for the inspirations!! Very creative and nice work.
