This week has flown by! I’ve been making a lot of soap (catching up after Christmas) and we’ve been enjoying some post- holiday socializing…. so I haven’t been posting much. But don’t think that I haven’t been cooking and baking! Here are some highlights.
Up top is the BBQ Tofu Chopped Salad from Real Food Daily. Amazing, absolutely amazing. I can tell you that it wasn’t because of how I made it, it’s simply the recipe. Every single thing I’ve made from that book has been delicious. Look closely at that tofu. For the first time ever, I had really good grill marks. Pretend you can tell, just to make me feel better. I was crushed that I had to chop it up. This salad is a knock-out and perfect for winter!
We also really liked the Spicy Yogurt Tempeh and Indian Spiced Chard from One Chubby Vegan. That tempeh really absorbs the marinade and the spices in the chard put it over the top. This is a quick and easy meal, too. I don’t do much Indian food (I think this is the first time ever), and it was great. I’ll have to expand my horizons. What fun!
Check out these cookie testers from Autumn Vegan and Garrick: Tiramisu Cookies, Rum Raisin Cookies and Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. The Tiramisu Cookies disappeared in record time. And they go great with wine, in case you were wondering. That’s double your fun. The Rum Raisin Cookies were a big surprise. We like raisins, but not rum and we loved these cookies! Somehow I think they should put Pirate in the name. Maybe that’s just me.
Apparently I don’t have a picture of it, but we also had the Mac and Cheese from Yellow Rose Recipes. It is my husband’s favorite version so far. I think I’m a little partial to the noochy sauces, but this was delicious and would really please omnis. Hopefully that picture is still on the camera.
Tonight’s dinner: Tofu Marsala with Hashed Brussels Sprouts. I’m trying the YRR marsala recipe. After falling in love with Tofu666′s, it’s going to be stiff competition. I’m hungry just thinking about it.
