Thanks again to everyone who entered and a special thank you to Nava Atlas for so generously offering to personally sign a copy of the book for our winner.
And since we are talking about Vegan Express today, here is a picture of another great meal I made from the book (which has quickly become my favourite out of all the recipes I've tried in Vegan Express) - Chana Masala and Curried Cashew Couscous:
I love chana masala regardless of how fancy or simple you get with it, but following along with the "express" theme of this book, I especially love how quickly it comes together. I have had chana masala many different ways, but I anytime it can be done with next to no work, I love it even more. We tend to like things to be extra flavourful so I doubled the spice amount: I put in 2 teaspoons of garam masala and 2 tsp of regular old curry powder (not something I recommend if you like things to be more mild). The coucous was amazing as well; the conflicting textures of the grain, the cashews and the raisins I tossed in made for such an interesting accompaniment to the chickpeas.
Sit tight dear readers, there will be another This is Vegan giveaway coming up soon!
