It was a busy weekend - soccer, study sessions (it's finals week for the kids), etc.
One night I made lavosh sandwiches for hubby and I. I spread the bread with "better than cream cheese", dijon mustard and smashed up avocado. Then put sliced tofurkey, thinly sliced tomatoes, pepperoncini and kalamata olives. I rolled it up and let it set awhile in the fridge - it turned out to be a great sandwich. I'll definitely make it again.
Sunday we went to a dinner party where they were serving traditional Persian food - lamb kebab and rice. So I made my vegan kebab (made with mushrooms, celery, walnuts, tofu, etc) and not only did we enjoy it but several of the other people tried it and liked it. I mean, no one would ever mistake it for lamb but it tastes good!
Last night I made calzone with a spinach and tofu "ricotta". I loosely based it on a recipe from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. I sauteed spinach with garlic and onion and added some nicoise olives, waluts, capers, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. I added this to crumbled tofu that was seasoned with some nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, lemon juice and basil. Alongside I made a greek salad and added the leftover kebab. For my greek salad dressing I use plain soy yogurt, red wine vinegar, a little olive oil, salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Tossed with romaine, olives, tomato, red onion, cucumber and tofu feta it makes a great salad.
Tonight was a busy night so we had a simple dinner - crunchy tacos, refried beans, sauteed corn and fresh mango. I usually make tacos with TVP or beans but tonight we used the Smart Ground taco and burrito flavor to keep it easy. We always have Mexican food on Tuesdays :-)
It started raining again today so I hit the cookbooks looking for soup recipes. This weekend I'm going to try the Palak Shorva- Curried spinach soup recipe from Fields of Greens. That's the plan anyway...we shall see.
