Vegan MoFo: All-Carb Diet

My parents used to say I never met a carb I didn't like. To this day, I don't count any carbs as enemies.

A while back a patient gave my friend (a fellow midwife) and me both copies of Vegan Planet as a thank-you gift for helping her have her baby. This has been the gift that keeps on giving, especially because Melissa and I can compare notes on recipes we've tried. She recently gave accolades to the pizza dough in VP, so I figured I'd better check it out.

A double batch yielded this braided bread, which ended up tasting more like a pretzel since I put kosher salt on top. I also made the Tuscan White Bean Pizza in my NEW BRICK OVEN. Bryanna Clark Grogan was raving about hers, so I bought one for myself. Thanks for the tip, BCG. 

Kevin made Susan V's veggeroni to go on top. We're loyal fans of the spicy PPK veggie sausage recipe, so this brought some unfamiliar flavors. I wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but once I got used to the flavor I kind of couldn't stop eating it. Good thing it's 'Fat Free Vegan' sausage. 

Note to self: wake up early, do Pilates, work off bread and veggeroni.
