Worknight Wednesday: Leftovers, a New Grill, and a Giveaway!


I am not cooking tonight.  I shall feast on leftovers, because this girl is pooped out.  I started working this morning at 5 am and after I got off work at 2, I drove an hour to return a flat top grill I bought myself (an early birthday present?) last week.  This is not the first time I have returned it.  I returned it once already, because the flat top warped and flipped out within minutes of me turning it on.  This time I returned it for the same reason.  That thing was just junk.  Expensive junk, but junk nonetheless.  All is well, because check out what I got instead!

Vegan Taco Party anyone?  
I cannot begin to convey the excitement I am feeling about this thing of beauty.  My head is swirling with new recipe ideas.  What should I make first?  Leave a comment telling me what you think I should make on this bad boy, and I will pick one of your ideas to make on Saturday afternoon!  And the person who comes up with the idea that inspires me most, will receive a copy of any of my books!

(Please leave a comment below.  I will choose one winner on Saturday at 1pm Pacific Standard Time.  YES!  I will ship internationally.)

Contest now over...Congrats to COCONUTANDBERRIES and Dawn from VEGAN FAZOOL!  Please send me your mailing address and which book you'd like to receive!

Wowza that thing's amazing! I would so go for a brunch party :) You can cook pancakes, tofu scramble and sausages all at once..and maybe some grilled fruit for the hell of it! YUM!

I like traditional tofu kabobs! I have also started grilling okra. It is delicious!

Grilled tofu with coconut and mango and avacado on top of lightly sauteed spinach

Grilled Pita Pizza party! I bet that thing would cook fresh pita or pizza dough perfectly... Everyone can put different toppings on their own. And grilled fruit for dessert.

Shannon said...

Oh man. I bet that would cook french toast pretty evenly! I say some stuffed french toast!

Pizza Party!

Apple-filled crepes with spicy chutney? Seared Asian tofu with gingery dipping sauce? Curried lentil sliders?
Or just pancakes...stacks and stacks of pancakes. :)

we had a grilled pizza party recently (http://veganeatsandtreats.blogspot.com/2012/07/grilled-pizza-party.html) and the whole thing was so damned fun. Plus, the pizzas turned out totally great. Still, do you know what my favorite thing was from the whole evening? That grilled pineapple. I could NOT stop munching it. So I'm gonna have to say go with the pineapple. It's so fun and special and different. If you put it on the pizza - well, that's just twice the fun.

I appreciate that you are doing a giveaway actually based on the content of the comments--make us use our noodles for once, right?

Gotta go Philly and say do a Vegan Philly Cheesesteak Party for your MoFo friends! Marinated Seitan or tamari touched Portobellos for the "meat," with the caramelized onions, peppers, mushrooms, whatever toppings you want right on the grill, and maybe add some grilled avocado (I've heard good things) top with your fave vegan cheese if you dig it.

XOXO!

I think you should grill some autumnal fruit for dessert, serve it topped with coconut ice cream, and say to hell with dinner. But that's just me ;)

TACO NIGHT! No contest! I would be a pig in mud with that flattop! A different filling in each corner and one in the middle! All diy - soyrizo, jackfruit, lentils, potatoes, corn! OMG I'd feed anyone within earshot just to keep grilling! And you probably shouldn't pick me anyway, because I have to have Vegan Food Gifts stat because I'm so freaking excited for it I can barely wait for powells to deliver it!

Sophie said...

I would totally try grilled falafels! With grilled pita and tahini sauce, yummy!

radioactivegan said...

Grilled pizza! I've never done it, but it look so good!

Dawn said...

Yeay! Awesome, thanks, Joni! Let me know if you don't get my email. I just sent it now, if you don't see it, check your "junk" folder, sometimes my email address is funny that way!

Thanks again!!

XOXO
