Jumbalaya

I used the Jumble-aya recipe from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan cookbook by Dreena Burton. Yum! It's incredibly full of flavor, filling, and not too difficult to cook. I made a huge pot and the results were enough for dinner and for six meals to freeze for lunch this week.

I also made some sauteed collard greens. I cannot believe how delicious greens are when just sauteed with a little bit of oil (or Earth Balance), garlic, and some coarse salt. Often people choke down the vegetables for their nutritionally value with no enjoyment, but these were to be savored.
