Dinner for my Mum

Last night my mum and dad came over for dinner for my mum’s birthday.  Her birthday dinner consisted of greens tossed maple balsamic dressing, Thanksgiving Tart from Vegnews and rutabaga and turnip toss.  For dessert we had peanut butter mousse pie topped with peanut brittle and chocolate sauce.




Balsamic Dressing:

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 3 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 T Dijion mustard
  • 1 T maple syrup

Whisk together.


Rutabaga and Turnip Toss 

  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 2 small rutabaga, peeled and sliced
  • 5 purple topped turnips, peeled and sliced
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 t cumin
  • 1 t chili powder
  • 1 t thyme
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t pepper
  • 3 T nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1 T earth balance

Heat oil over medium-high heat and add the onion, rutabaga and turnips.  Cook for 7 minutes until slightly soften.  While the onion, rutabaga and turnip cook mix together cumin, chili, thyme, salt, pepper and water together.  After the 7 minutes add the cumin mixture to the rutabaga mix and toss.  Cook together for 3-5 minutes until all cooked through.  Add the nutritional yeast and earth balance toss to coat.
