Eastern European Casserole and “Chicken” Fried Tofu

I made a couple recipes from the Passionate Vegetarian this week, one of which was a great success…the other…not-so-much.  I knew one of two things would happen with a “casserole” that included egg noodles, saurkraut, onions, apples, and apple sauce.  It would either be REALLY good, or pretty bad.  This wasn’t as bad as it [...]

Kung Pao Tofu

I’m not entirely sure why a cookbook is necessary to make a stirfry…and that’s what this was.  A GOOD stirfry, sure, but a  stirfry nonetheless.  The oven-baking method for the tofu was pretty good, but that’s the only part of the recipe I’d really save and go back to.  The portion pictured is over rice, [...]


Breakfast for dinner is ALWAYS exciting…and somehow seems to be so much more delicious than breakfast in well…the morning.  I had some leftover tempeh bacon from the BLT, so I figured I should make some “sides” for it. The waffle maker hadn’t been out in awhile, so I went back to the banana waffles from [...]

Pomegranate Molasses Tofu

The people at Pom Wonderful were kind enough to send me a box of their flagship Pomegranate juice to try out, along with some information about the benefits of said juice.  (Although I must say that being Middle Eastern…I already KNEW pomegranate is awesome for you) and I couldn’t wait to get cooking.  (Although a [...]

Persian Pilaf and Lemon-Cashew Tofu

I made Persian Pilaf in honor of those in Iran who were outspoken about their beliefs and jailed for it…so they can’t enjoy such dishes.  This was probably the most time consuming rice dish I’ve ever made start to finish, and that even included risottos.  Unlike a risotto, a lot of the time with this [...]

Mango-Ginger Tofu and Sesame-Ginger-Miso Dressing

I never thought I’d say this, but there is such a thing as “too much mango”.  I’ll go head and admit it, the Mango-Ginger tofu from VwaV was too much mango for me.   I could only handle a small helping of this stuff because it was just so overpoweringly sweet and mango-ey.  There was no [...]

Tofu Curry with Peach Chutney

We’re calling this meal Indian Fusion since I didn’t actually reference any recipes, and I’m pretty sure anything that I create by grabbing “this and that” can’t be any closer to traditional Indian food than fusion.  It was delicious though, so fusion or not, I’ll call it a success.  There were a couple peaches heading [...]

Dry Rubbed BBQ Tofu

This idea came from Vegan Dad although I think I went a good bit heavier on the dry rub then he did.  I also used the bottled Malaysian Pineapple BBQ sauce in the fridge rather than making my own from scratch. My spice rub was a combination of paprika, sea salt, shallot-pepper, cayenne, onion powder, [...]

Sundried Tomato-Asparagus Quiche

Oooooh YUM.  Sometimes I feel like I need to draw a family tree for recipes by the time they make their way to me.  This one actually started it’s life in VwaV, a book that I OWN, but somehow missed it in.  As far as I can make out, this version went from VwaV—>Pink Stripes–>Yeah, [...]

First Grilling of the Summer

The grills below my apartment officially opened last weekend when I wasn’t around, so I finally made use of them today.  I was scared people would be lining up with the gorgeous Saturday weather, but apparently I was the only one with grilling on my mind, and I didn’t have to share with anyone. I [...]
