Eat, Drink & Be Vegan

Here is my first offering from Dreena's latest book, Eat, Drink & Be Vegan. I made Gimme Chimis!

This was soooo simple to make. There weren't a whole lot of ingredients and no fussy prep work. I made the filling earlier in the day and then assembled & cooked the chimis later.

The filling was delicious! I like how they were fried, then baked. That made the tortilla crispy.

I served them along with some packaged Spanish rice and Lemon-Broiled Green Beans, also from ED&BV. Because the chimis & the beans were baked on a parchment lined pans, clean-up was a breeze.

Here we have 5-Spice Almond Cookies. These are very tasty and nicely spiced , but Dreena came up with an idea to make them even better.

Add ice cream and make 5-Star Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches! The ice cream really sent these over the top. Simple, yet utterly delicious.
Now, what shall I make next?

This all looks so delicious! Your chimi looks perfectly browned & folded. Hey, you mentioned my crockpot stew, and it occured to me that it was your step-by-step post (a long time ago) that inspired my stew. Thanks again! :)
