Friday Foodie Favorites: The “Bookmarked” Edition

in Friday Favorites

“Friday Favorites” is a popular blogging concept featured throughout the healthy living blogging community.  This Friday (though I normally do not post on Fridays), I decided to do my own version of my Friday Favorites.  This list of favorites includes several of my favorite recipes that I have bookmarked in the past (some many months ago!) and finally cooked, and a new favorite from one of my go-to cookbooks.  I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Friday Foodie Favorites: The “Bookmarked” Edition

Curry Egg Salad Sandwich

It is no secret that I have a major thing for anything curry!  So when I came across this recipe for Curry Egg Salad, I knew I had to make it!  Boy, am I glad that I did.

The original recipe states to serve it on a bed of Romaine lettuce, but I chose to eat mine in the more traditional sandwich form.  It was super delicious.  I really enjoyed the curry flavor, and I already have plans to make it again soon!

Spicy Eggplant and Okra Bake

I made my own version of Heather’s Spicy Eggplant and Okra Bake for a healthy and satisfying vegan dinner.  I left out the hemp seeds and almond milk, and used part of a jar of leftover curry sauce that I had in my fridge instead of the spicy ketchup.  Though it was an adaptation from the original recipe, the results were fantastic!

Mexican Barley Salad

I mentioned on Wednesday that I made a Mexican Barley Salad.  To make this salad, I followed Anne’s recipe, but made some slight adaptations.  First, I made a smaller batch since I was only cooking for myself.  I also decided to use black-eyed peas in the place of the black beans.  The vegetables that I used included red onions, corn, and red and orange peppers.  This was one tasty and filling dish.

And finally…

Masala Burgers

On Tuesday night I made Masala Burgers from the Everyday Happy Herbivore cookbook.  I absolutely love all three of the Happy Herbivore’s cookbooks, and cannot recommend them enough.  Like every other dish that I have made from these cookbooks, these burgers were fantastic and wonderfully seasoned!

So there you have it!  A few of my foodie favorites from the past couple of weeks! 🙂
