I made the vegan mac'n'cheez from the Vegan Yum Yum cookbook, it turned out very good. Had that with a nice big salad. So far all the things I have tried from this cookbook are very good!

We had nigari tofu cut in cubes, fried in olive oil until very crisp; tossed mixed green & tomato salad; roasted root vegetables (yams, potatoes, garlic, carrots, & onions)

It's gotten so we eat only nigari tofu for how solid & crisp it can be made.

My odd loose meat barbecue sandwiches on hamburger rolls with cole slaw on top. When I was a kid there was a chain of local restaurants called Hot Shoppes (predecessor of Marriott corporation). They had "barbecue" on hamburger rolls made with ground beef and topped with slaw. I make it with granular TVP prepared with sloppy joe mix plus two tbsp barbecue spice. Pretty good all in all - my friend like it and ask for seconds I like a few shakes of Tabasco on the meat. Tonight served with some good root beer.

I just made the Mac n Cheese from the Moosewood Low-fat Favorites cookbook:

Amazon.com: Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites: Flavorful Recipes for Healthful Meals (9780517884942): Moosewood Collective: Books

It is "OMG I could eat the entire pan" good. I guess that would kind of negate the low-fat aspect.

We are "cooking down" or "eating down" the house as we are about to go OOT. So I made use of what I have...

Potatoes, soy milk and vegan spread = mashed potatoes.

Sauteed half a chopped yellow onion, 2 garlic cloves and a diced carrot with olive oil, added red sauce and a can of garbanzo beans.

Allowed that to cook and then served atop the mashed potatoes.


*very yummy and healthful comfort food - I have made this before but had more fresh veggies in the mix like zucchini and green beans.

Don't you love it when those "clean out the fridge" meals really come together? Those are the best!

We made homemade refried beans tonight. They were awesome.

We also attempted flour tortillas....less that awesome. Embarassiing for a native So. Californian (me) and Texan (my daughter).

Sooooo....our holy grail over the holidays will be perfect tortillas, both flour and corn. We are searching the web and taking notes and open to any and all suggestions here.

p.s. we LOVE to experiment and we have a kitchen chock-full of ingredients and implements. Recipes just need to be vegetarian (no lard!!!!). TIA!

I'm going to make miso soup and vegetable stir-fry w/ marinated tempeh. I just had last night's left-overs for lunch (whole grain rotini w/ "cheese" sauce and wilted chard w/ tahini sauce. Yum). I got a new vegan cookbook for Christmas so, I've been cooking up a storm.
