This Sunday my adventures in cooking continued with 2 recipes from this vegan recipe booklet:

First I tried
I used some dried ( then soaked overnight ) black beans instead of kidney beans and I added a tablespoon of cayenne pepper to the recipe but it turned out very tasty. It made a huge pot. I have food for a few days. Very filling too, which was good, because I had a full stomach which helped my self control when I made
This was so rich even nibbling on a bit of the surplus pie filling completely filled me up and I still don’t want to eat. I have a new appreciation for the cost and time involved in making a pie. I bought my ingredients from a co-op so that added some money, but the ingredients for the pie cost the better part of $20. I used a ready made crust ( whole spelt, couldn’t find grahm cracker crusts anywhere ) so that cut down on a lot of time. All I had to do was melt the chocolate and mix the filling. All I had was a blender so I had to do it in stages. I’m sure if I had a food processor it would have gone quicker. The pie is delicious and it was worth the trouble. It was the first pie I ever made. I enjoyed the experience. To my pleasant surprise baking can be fun. It is creative like programming and like programming you get the fun and satisfaction of making something.
