Vegetarian Victory!

Every couple of weeks, I take a stab at making a vegetarian meal. To be clear: I am a dedicated omnivore with a leaning towards the “steak” end of things, so this is mainly prompted by a desire to eat more cheaply, locally, and healthfully. I can only have so many delightfully marbled ribeye steaks before they catch up with me and I die of a heart attack.

Usually, these vegetarian adventures are 100% flops, and we end up running out to Wendy’s rather than choking down, for example, barley-mushroom risotto. (It sounded great, smelled great, tasted AWFUL.)

But tonight! Tonight, I have achieved vegetarian success with the help of a cookbook that my best friend Dean Martin gave to me before he passed away. The cookbook: “How To Cook Everything Vegetarian.” The recipes: Beer-Glazed Black Beans, and Grain Griddlecakes.

Ta-daaaaa!

I must say, that looks pretty decent for vegetarian food. Especially the vegetarian food that comes out of my kitchen. Anyway, if you feel like eating lots of fiber, look these bad boys up! The whole meal cost less than $4, and all the ingredients were already hanging around my house. Not too shabby.
