Potato and Kale Enchiladas with Roasted Chile Sauce
For those of you who are not vegan I will tell you about two of the many people who made my transition to veganism a lot easier. Those two people are Terry Romero and Isa Moskowitz. These two lovely ladies are the writers of my favorite cookbooks. Today, I made yet another amazing recipe from their book VEGANOMICON. Here's today's story:
Joelle came over today! I am not even kidding when I say that I haven't seen her in about 3 months. 3 MONTHS!!!!!! We don't live very far from each other, (roughly a 10 minute drive... I know, pathetic) we just both have severely busy schedules. Today was the day that we set aside all else and planned to hang out. It was so good to see her, not only because she is one of the most amazing people in my life, but because she LOVES TO COOK WITH ME! So, we went grocery shopping. I brought my VEGANOMICON with me because I was still unsure of what I wanted to make. I decided on the Enchiladas! So! We shopped, we bought, we made. I must say... these were some of the most amazing enchiladas I've ever had.
I have had a lot of good food, but these really made my day/week/month. I am also very lucky to have good friends to share it with. I took some of these to the set of REEL MEN, a weekly video podcast starring Dean Pizzoferrato, Langley West and Edwin Colon Jr. They are good friends of mine and asked me to guest star on the show today. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! I got to sit in with them, talk about movies and got really good feedback on my food from the guys. I think Edwin described them as "Fucking delicious." Langley, a fellow vegan, was quite happy with them as well. Dean seemed a little iffy at first, but also complimented. It feels goo to hear nice things about a dish you prepared. It must have taken us 2 hours to get everything prepared but it was worth it!!! I probably wouldn't have been able to make these without you Joelle! There are 2 left and I want to eat them but I am saving them for my roommate. Thank you to Joelle, Dean, Langley and Edwin. It was a good day.
