Hello,<br><br>
I'm new to vegetarianism and I still don't know many recipes featuring seitan or tofu... So, I'm hereby asking you for some suggestions. I espeacially would like to know quick and easy meals to make, because, since I'm a student, I don't have much time to prepare very time-consuming meals :s<br><br>
I'll be waiting for delicious recipes *.*

I'm not much of a cook so I can't really give you any recipes. But do you know about <a href="http://vegweb.com/" target="_blank">http://vegweb.com/</a> yet?

I second this, vegweb is a fantastic resource. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"><br><br>
Also, silken tofu is fantastic in desserts. I have gotten rave reviews of this chocolate peanut butter pie: <a href="http://vegetarian.about.com/od/desertrecipes/r/tofupie.htm" target="_blank">http://vegetarian.about.com/od/deser.../r/tofupie.htm</a>

@Teresa I've never heard about vegweb.com but it seems cool, thanks ^^<br>
@Werewolf Girl I'm sure silken tofu is great for desserts, but before getting to them, I first need to know how to prepare some quick easy meals, but thanks anyway (I adore chocolate) ^^<br>
@PR_Deltoid I, indeed, got inspired to make some Udon Noodle Stirfry in the future <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> It reminded me of a restaurant that I love to go to, Wok To Walk *.*

Only successful outing I've had with tofu... granted I'm hardly a tofu connoisseur, but I was well pleased with these.<br><br>

My standard fast meal when I need to eat and get back to work is chickpea tacos. Open and drain a can, mash the beans, fry them, then add taco spices and veg broth. It's ready in about 8 minutes.<br><br>
Another one, which has a short prep but a longer cooking time is mashed potatoes, roasted vegetable and sauteed onion/mushroom/seitan/soy sauce.<br><br>
Stir frys are good too. I cut up everything in advance and keep it in containers in the fridge.<br><br>
Miso soup is fast. Boil the water and add the vegetables and noodles, then add the miso paste right before serving.

I like to make dips using silken tofu as a base. Put the tofu in the blender with just enough liquid - almond milk, veg broth, etc - to blend it thoroughly then add whatever. Last weekend it was roasted tomatillos, poblanos, and garlic. It's good with spinach and artichokes too. You can eat these cold or room temperature with chips or raw veggies, or heated over rice or pasta.

This sounds really good. I've made mashed chickpeas with vegan mayo for sandwiches but I'll have to try this.<br><br>
Here is a blog I really like though he doesn't use much tofu. Good basic recipes though. <a href="http://www.myvegancookbook.com/blog/" target="_blank">http://www.myvegancookbook.com/blog/</a> List of recipe categories on the left.
