jessback <div class="cooked">Vegan with a Vengeance taught me how to deal with tofu, I really suggest everyone look that book up.
Lately my go to food has been a simple Indian-ish style dish.
It’s a simple recipe:
  • Red lentils
  • A mix of beans
  • Chopped onion and garlic
  • Minced tomatoes
  • Coconut milk or cream
  • A whole lot of spices, from curry to pepper. Experiment with these
Just put them in a frying pan. If you want to spoil yourself prepare some raita and Naan bread in addition.

For dessert I would like to have creme brulee. Does anyone know of a sous vide vegan creme brulee recipe? I have found vegan creme brulee recipes for cooking in the oven, but since the recipes rely on thickeners (like agar agar, locust bean gum, and tapioca starch) I don't know how I would adapt that for a sous vide Recipe. Any thoughts? I do have torch 9one of these ones )

Knowtions In Motion Night before last, was wild rice stuffed acorn squash and succotash.

Last night, was carrot/ginger/kale soup and grilled chao brand tomato cayenne cheese on artisan rye bread.

Tonight, will be a big salad made with romaine/kale/sweet red peppers/carrots/red onion/celery/kalamata olives/spinach-artichoke hummus and topped off with maple mustard dressing. Dessert will be home baked g/f vegan pumpkin/non-dairy chocolate chip mini-loaf quick bread, likely topped with some non-dairy nice cream.

Yum....and then some.

blue_green_gold Aloo matar in the electric pressure cooker.

A pile of quartered baby red potatoes sauteed for a few minutes in a tablespoon or sesame oil with fresh turmeric, fresh ginger, sliced jalapenos, whole coriander and cumin seeds, garam masala, black pepper and salt. All ingredients organic, except the turmeric.

Then set the pressure cooker for 7 minutes, at which point I'll add a bag of frozen peas for 3 minutes.

Wish me luck, this is an experiment, but so far every experiment with the electric pressure cooker (Fagor Lux) has been a huge success. I love the thing.

Easiest to use a rice cooker or electric pressure cooker (which do live up to their hype once you get times right!)
If you don't have either, look up Alton Browns oven baked brown rice. I used to use that method and it is really foolproof, and very good and fluffy

Proportions of brown rice to water do vary, and I recommend going a little over, even if you drain the water out.

My Instant Pot is 1 cup brown rice (rinsed) to 1 1/4 cup water. Set manually for 10 minutes, natural pressure release. I use a pyrex dish on the rack for the rice/water, set over 1-2 cups water in pot itself

Ferncat I'm going to make veggie noodle bowls tonight. I marinade the tofu, bake it and serve it over soba noodles with fresh veggies and throw some of the marinade on for sauce. I have extra sweet potatoes to use up so I am going to slice them thin, bake those with the tofu and see how that is.

Mmm, I love that. We're having chana masala (chickpea and tomato curry) with another vegetable curry later (he'll be making it as I'm working - I may suggest aloo gobi). We'll also be having chappatis (Indian wholewheat flatbread) and Indian pickles.

Thalassa Went to the vegan street fair today and got a hot dog from a vendor with sweet chili sauce, pepper relish and sautéed onion. Also had a sample of vegan chow mein in a tiny cup with a square of tofu, and a Kuli Kuli Moringa green energy shot, and a vegan fortune cookie.

I probably should have waited in the long lines for a more exotic meal, but I'll do that next month at VegFest, haha. Just went today to walk around a bit and people watch.

Knowtions In Motion It's clean out the fridge night....gonna throw together a salad with some romaine, kale, carrots, celery, sweet mini-peppers, purple cabbage, and cucumber, make a cream of celery soup (made creamy by blending with stick blender), and some steamed locally grown curly and red Russian kale, and there's a couple slices of leftover g/f pizza with no cheese, extra sauce, garlic, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, sliced tomato, and extra oregano. Buffet night, apparently. ) Tomorrow has a good chance of being leftover night. I love it when that happens. lol

jaskins Tonight I'm making a stir fry! Tofu in a black pepper-tamari sauce, with baby bok choy, red bell pepper, and a shallot. Serving it with basmati rice with coconut, pineapple, and sesame seeds!

Needless to say I am counting down the seconds until I am off work and in my kitchen

Beets&Beats This thread is super inspiring! I LOVE it!

Tonight here is pretty boring/awesome. As in... I keep coming back to my favourite and very simple meals that others might scoff at but I never fail to savour to the last bite.

Basmati rice, kimchi, stirfried greens and smoked tofu, with avocado. Followed rapidly by homemade crumble (GF so almond flour and whatnot) and coconut yoghurt/cream. Yum.
