The Plant Pure Nation Cookbook – Buffalo Beans and Greens

Did you think I fell off the face of the earth? It’s been almost four weeks since I posted and I still haven’t finished with the PlantPure Nation Cookbook review.

I have a good excuse for my absence, however. I’ve been working with Nelson and Dr. T. Colin Campbell on the rollout of their documentary PlantPure Nation. It’s exciting to be a part of this project (even if it is keeping me very busy) and I hope you’ll take the time to see the film. I can’t wait for you to see the final version but the real excitement comes at the end when the PlantPure Pods start forming! More on that later; right now I want to tell you about tonight’s delicious dinner from the PlantPure Nation Cookbook.

Tonight we had Buffalo Beans and Greens and it was so good! I tried to cheat and bought vegan mayonnaise at the store instead of following the recipe in the book. The recipe calls for Blue Cheese Dressing made with homemade mayo and I tried to save time.

Well, I ended up having to make the mayo anyway because when I opened the brand-new jar I had just purchased an hour before, it had mold in it. Ick.

Luckily, I had all the ingredients for the homemade mayo in the cookbook right down to the xanthan gum! It was super easy to make although it did have a list of ingredients a mile long. The creamilicious mayo was then turned into blue cheese dressing which turned this blue cheese aficionado skeptic into a believer!

It was worth all the extra effort! Dr. D. and I enjoyed every bite! It was served with brown rice as a base, topped with steamed kale and pinto beans with spicy baked buffalo tofu on the top. I drizzled some of that dressing I made over it and we had a fantastic, nutritious meal packed with flavor!

Another winning recipe from this excellent cookbook!
