Cooking the Post Punk Kitchen way

Made a couple of interesting recipes from the Post Punk Kitchen over the last few days.  The Post Punk Kitchen website and Facebook pages are operated mostly by Brooklynite Isa Chandra Moskowitz, a pioneer of fun, creative vegan cooking - beyond veggie burgers and lentil stews.   With long-time collaborator Terry Hope Romero she has written several cookbooks including Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, Vegan with a Vengeance and more recently Veganomicon, which I use all the time.

The last two recipes I tried were  chickpea piccata and quinoa and broccoli with a raspberry chipotle sauce.  As is the case with most PPK fare it was good and healthy, not too difficult and relatively quick from 'mise en place' to food on the table.  Here are some photographs:

Quinoa and broccoli with raspberry chipotle sauce.  The purple cauliflower is from the Farmer's Market at Rice University - check it out every Tuesday afternoon.
