Vine and Dine 2/6/2012

Over at Vegan Appetite, Tami is hosting a Vine and Dine event, and this time, featuring two recipes from Bryanna Clark Grogan's new masterpiece, World Vegan Feast
First up is the Lentil and Rapini Stew with Vegan Sausage.
It is / was outstanding. We made it using the chipotle sausages from Field Roast.
A very hearty and satisfying dish.
For a wine, we choose the Seven Daughters Red. This is a new one for us, and we came by it as a result of reading a fine discussion over at PPK. It's a very lively blend, smooth, and it's soft sweet undertones complemented the meal perfectly.

So why did I wait until now to take part in the Vine and Dine adventures?
Simple, Ms. Clark Grogan.
Bryanna is not only one of the best Vegan cooks out there, but is also one of the most generous. She shares many recipes on her site (This in ADDITION to having published 8 fantastic books), is quick to answer and advise, and keeps giving us new ideas on how to wow our palats. 
Now, if only her wonderful books could be edited so that there was a recipe per page(s)... 


  1. Thanks to you, I just popped into that thread and added my two cents.

    Thank you very much for doing Vine and Dine with us. I adore Bryanna, too.

  2. So glad you joined in this go-around. Thank you!

  3. How cool is this! I get to post a comment on your blogspot. I am so excited that you decided to join this V&D. It would so great if you continued with other books, but if this is the only one that sparked your interest, we are the better for it. A recipe per page, huh?...

  4. Welcome to Vine and Dine. This is my first BCG book. I am loving it!
