ain't no ful

I thought I could do it, but I did not succeed in locating any fava beans here in Iowa City. We do actually have an Ethiopian restaurant (sort of) and they serve ful, but they apparently get their fava beans elsewhere because alas, my search didn't turn any up. Surprised the heck outta me.

What's up next?

oh, good question! trying to make injera so late in the week made me forget we had another one coming! i picked so recently so i'll wait for others, though it would be super to know before going to the farmer's market in a coupla hours! going there with a plan is always the best!

sorry you couldn't find favas! i think i have extra dry ones and could mail them to you if you wanted them...though canned are way easier, of course!

Thanks for the offer, but I think I'll just go to the restaurant and have theirs--way easier. I don't have a burning desire to make it, now it's week has passed.

when?

i was thinking we could make something with peppers...i bought 6 bell peppers, 1 poblano, 3 banana peppers and some cayenne! pepper season!

how's about peppers stuffed with rice and ground soy...?

some kind of stuffed pepper recipe sounds good. any weblinks or recipes?

i think it was veganknitting who mentioned the muffins, around the time of the peach cobbler or the coffee cake (i forget which one). muffins are also good.

well if veganknitting emily has a muffin recipe, that would be great! i don't think she's suggested something yet so of course that would be cool, too.

i have some stuffed peppers in mind if we don't hear back about muffins, but i'd totally be into making muffins. i just had blueberry streudel muffin yesterday that was so excellent!

and I just had a spelt walnut apple muffin from Urban Herbivore, it was great too! But stuffed peppers would be good too.

hmmm, i still have enough peppers for stuffed peppers i bet, but i just put some in the oven to roast (roasted red pepper hummus and muhammara). i'm thinking muffins now more than stuffed peppers. have you guys ever been over at Domestic Affair? She has a zucchinni muffin I'd like to try...

it's sunday, people, let's do this thing!

yeah, i feel the same way! so, stagflation and anyone else still checking in here, let's say we'll keep with the idea of muffins that was suggested earlier by veganknitting (though i admit that i don't remember). how bout zucchini date muffins? all of jae's recipes are cool, and she actually recommends the apple one more (she just wrote me an email) but as i have a big zucchini and we have more time on apples than zucchini in the growing season, i'm gonna suggest those.

i would just post it, but i have this nagging feeling that it's not "my turn"...

so? so?

the way i see it, if it's sunday and nobody else has posted yet, then they've forfeited.

also, i like the sound of those zucchini date muffins.

cool. then i'll post it! thanks stagflation!

Maybe next time someone can suggest a recipe that is both vegan and wheat-free/gluten-free and soy-free...I'm not kidding, that's the challenge I'm up against...that way I can join in too :)

couldn't you make them with a different flour? i bet you could substitute chickpea/fava, brown rice, or any other gluten free flour and still get great results. i do that all the time, even though i'm not gluten-free.

Thanks!
