In my fantasy head, I keep thinking I'm being so organized about my theme for MoFo this year, but the truth is I usually have no idea WTF I'm going to cook until around 1:30 or so. I'm really not a big plan aheader in the cooking department, unless there's an event or party that I have to be put together for. Usually, it really has more to do with, "What can I make without hauling my tired ass to the co-op?" So when I started rooting around in the zines today, I was pleased to discover I had ever'thing I needed to crank out Potato-Broccoli soup from Kitchen Witch--Vegan Magic. This zine's title is pretty self-descriptive; along with recipes you get info about "Alchemical Arts," "Recipes for the Revolution," Wicca talk, pro-boob feeding info and stuff like that. It's all good, clean fun, nothing weird to look at here.
|Sorta plain Jane, but sometimes that's A-OK.|
Sometimes a simple recipe can mean there's more room for creative play and personal adaptations, plus it can also be good for both beginner cooks and newer vegans.
I was hungry while the soup was cooking, so I plowed through the zine to see if I had ingredients for anything else. With a few changes, I realized Red Cabbage Salad was well within my reach. I do love cabbage slaw, and I was able to put this together in about five minutes. Man, but was this good! I gobbled through the entire bowl while watching the last of the first season of Breaking Bad.

|Look at all that healthy stuff.|
