I made this to use up stuff in my fridge. Primarily four green tomatoes that I couldn’t figure out what else to do with. It turned out well, a bit too hot at first, but mellowed when I let it sit. Don’t tell anyone, but the green curry paste I used had been (and still is) sitting in my fridge since 2007, or so. Yeah, I know. But I didn’t die from botulism, so whatever.

Recipe after the jump.

I’ve been craving a hearty black bean stew lately. I don’t know what it is about black beans, they just seem more lush and filling than any other bean.
Terry Hope Romero’s Viva Vegan is full of recipes I want to cook, but the Portobello Feijoada was calling my name extra loud. I just got a new CSA load and it was one of those things where everything aligned and I happened to have all the necessary ingredients to make exactly what I was craving (minus the Portobellos, which I bought at the store today).

You guys, this dish is fucking delicious!

One of my “empty out the freezer” meals was this:

Seared green beans, Mexican millet and raw butternut squash salad

I had a few more chickpea cutlets to eat, so I stuck that in here. I had some old millet in my pantry, I paired that with some of my fresh tomatoes for Veganomicon “Mexican Millet”, then there was an opened, half-full pack of frozen green beans far back in my freezer that I’d totally forgotten about. Must have come from my winter share last year. Ehh… yeah, I know.
I seared the green beans with garlic and olive oil, inspired by Terry Bryant’s Vegan Soul Kitchen recipe. To round it all out I grated a butternut squash and tossed it in salt, olive oil, lemon juice, a dash of red wine vinegar and a dash of cayenne pepper.
