Calling all vegans:

My husband is a vegan, which means that 90% of the time I am too by default.

Thought maybe those vegans (or vegetarians - I can doctor a recipe) might want to share some of their favorite recipes.

Here's a great vegan coffee cake (great for non-veg's too!!)

Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups flour (org. pastry flour works best)
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup plain soy yogurt (you can also use sour cream like tofutti)
3 tsp egg substitute
4 Tbs water

Topping: 4 Tbs flour (whole wheat is fine)
2 Tbs margerine
10 Tbs brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Make topping first, set aside.
Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Add wet ingredients and beat until smooth.
Pour into 8" or 9" lightly oiled/sprayed pan
Sprinkle topping
Bake @ 350 for 35-45 minute (or until center is set).

If anyone tries it, I hope you enjoy. It's not the healthiest of recipes, but it's great on a Saturday morning!!

Okay, I'm going to try to resurrect this thread now that there's a separate veg sub-forum. I find that we get stuck in food ruts and I would love to swap some recipes/dinner ideas with others. Here's a recipe that's super easy and tasty for a quick weeknight dinner:

Goulash (adapted from my mom's recipe)

1 package Morningstar Farms burger crumble (or other substitute equiv. to 1lb beef)
3 tbs olive oil (or oil of your choice)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 28 oz. can of tomatoes (whole or diced)
1 & 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons paprika
pepper to taste
1 & 1/4 cup elbow macaroni

Saute green pepper and onion until onion translucent. Add all other ingredients. Cover and simmer over med-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 25-30 minutes or until macaroni is done and most of the liquid is reduced.

Enjoy! Now bring on some others!

I am looking for a recipe I had 5 years ago, with no luck.

You use firm tofu (or extra firm), cut it into long french fry shapes, and shake it in a few herbs to make tofu fries. I forgot wish herbs you could use. Any ideas??? I thought one was garlic or ginger.
