groar, I'm all about comfort food!

When I go to the Czech republic, I buy dehydrated tofu "meat" strips.
They're similar to Morningstar Frams frozen chicken strips but cost about 20% of Morningstar Farms, have a longer shelf life and don't need refrigeration.

I made a variation on tuna-noodle casserole a few weeks ago with this meat substitute.
Down home delicious.

My next goal is to learn to cook for less than 6 people.

Tonight I had a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich with heavy dark sunflower seed bread (whole grain) and a big bowl of the spinach-leek soup I made on Saturday.

Cold and rainy here.

I made a simple black bean soup with corn, chiles and tomatoes, served over rice and garnished with lime, cilantro and queso fresco.

Did the trick. I am warm and full.

i made this last night. i slow-cooked it for a lot longer than it said though.

BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Sandwich | Chow Vegan

the texture was awesome, but i either need better bbq sauce for the purpose or something else to flavor it. it tasted fine, but not amazing. i think i'm going to try this one next time i get a can of jackfruit:

by the way, cleaning up my slow cooker after that bbq jackfruit has been an ordeal - i'm still working on it 2 days later! the sugar from the sauce is all burnt & melded to the cooker. the cleanup has made the dish officially not worth it, but i'll still try other variations.

Thanks for the warning. I still want to try that jackfruit though. I had the same sticky problem when making sweet & sour "pork" (TVP) with canned pineapple. A few moments inattention and I had a layer of burnt stuff on the bottom of the pot. Gotta watch that sugar

Default chili

Tonight was a lazy Sunday dinner. I fried up some chopped red peppers, onions, dulce & garlic in olive oil & added it to 2 cans of black beans, 2 cans of canned chopped tomatoes. Added TVP & red chile powder for a vegetarian chili. Served with whole wheat tortillas.

When I do something like that, I take Dawn liquid detergent and fill the vessel up with water, put it aside for a day or 3 (when I remember) and it is usually easy to clean.

Worth a shot.

Tonight I made a kohlrabi schnitzel sandwich.
German bread crumbs accept a higher heat before burning.
Even I can cook now.
