minced garlic or pressed? Give me a little something to go by. Dry mustard or yellow or brown?

Camembert is good. Not sure it pairs well with tabouli & humus, though.

To continue with the cheese theme, I plan to do a crab & shrimp au gratin with gruyere next week. Very rich but is delicious.
That sounds great, what time?

I should warn you it also contains bacon in case you became a mooslim during your travels to exotic lands.

Yes, you should mince or press the garlic.

I just whack everything in the food processor. Dijon mustard. Lots of cilantro.

I just took some lobster tails out of the freezer. For those who turn up their noses at frozen lobster - I live an 18 hour drive from the coast!!

Will likely steam them and serve with lemon beurre blanc for dipping, asparagus, and rice. Or pasta.

I have some red snapper filets I'm going to cook on my new outdoor griddle. A little seasoning, olive oil, butter & lemon. It's going to be like a Waffle House at my crib with the new griddle.

That's a pretty good reason not to eat lobster, wherever it is you're at.

I made a really good squash, potato and eggplant stew last night. Ate it with homemade bread I made on Saturday.

Been vegan all weekend. Need some chicken asap.

I'm about to make a ginger/herb/soy marinade for chicken thighs which I'll BBQ. Also bought a ton of Swiss Chard which I'll cook using a recipe Vinny provided to try to boost my neutrophils.

That looks really good, EMG. I would love to have the recipe, I'm constantly pitching banana blossoms in the compost pile.

It's very simple, Led. You just chop up the soft inside of the banana blossoms, fry in oil until brown and crispy, set aside on an paper towel to let them crisp a bit and the oil drips off.

In a skillet with a bit of oil, stir fry some diced onion, garlic, and coarsely ground black pepper until the onions are soft, then add a shot of cane vinegar and a shot of soy sauce, toss in the fried banana blossoms, and stir it all together until it sucks up the adobo (soy and vinegar).

That's it. Eat with rice. Or as a side.

The crispy fried banana blossom is also very good just as an addition to other dishes or to snack on with a bit of salt.

I found brussels sprouts! Frozen, but whatever, I haven't had them in probably 7 years or so.

Steamed then pan fried with garlic, rosemary, olive oil and eaten with vegetable pasta

They were good. I like sprouts.

I thought about roasting them but wasn't sure if it would work out that well since they were frozen. Figured steaming and then searing in a pan would be roughly the same. The GF had never had them before. She didn't seem that impressed, other than thinking they looked cute. She declared them to be small cabbages.

I have to be honest. I don't think either of those look very good. I liked it better when you were posting pictures of non-vegan food you make.

I think it could be a colour thing. There are certainly vegetarian dishes that you've posted pictures of previously (and so have other posters) that look good. I wonder if it's the lack of butter or something that makes them look a bit dull.

I'm also in a funk with food right now and not motivated to make anything. So it could just be me.

Lovely friend with hunters in her family, just gave me a humongous side of Venison!!! *it´s delicious!* enough for a month!

Last night I had traditional deer stew (used some of the blood to thicken it)

Tonight= venison steaks with baked potatoes. I can´t believe how tender this venison is too:)
