We've all heard it a million times from unimaginative omnis when they first hear you're vegan. It's such a boring and predictable cliche that I feel dirty just typing it.

To answer the question, I thought it might be kind of neat to start a thread where you show off what you had for dinner.

The only ground rules are that it:

a) has to be a vegan

b) you have to include a picture

c) it has to be a home cooked meal (something, you know...with ingredients)

and

d) include a description or recipe.

Great idea TJ, why don't you go first?

Well, okay. Since you asked, tonight I had a toasted focaccia sandwich made with Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese, sliced avacados, roasted red peppers, tomatoes and mixed greens served with a baked potato with olive oil, celtic sea salt and Tofutti fake sour cream.

(The rosemary is just for garnish.)

So, yeah.

What do you eat?

Cheers!

TJ

PS. I know this is more food related but I'd like to keep it in the vegan forum as I'm only interested in vegan dishes.

Great thread - we've had a couple similar and never had many posts... (I'm weird, I ALWAYS take pictures of my food...)

We had seitan cutlets with mashed taters and gravy and lots and lots of corn on the cob which I didn't get a picture of (but you all know what that looks like anyway).

The seitan recipe is this one:

and then I breaded and fried (YES! FRIED!) and made a simple brown gravy and mashed taters to go with...

No recipe or anything, just some random stuff.

(Rice, Veggie Crumbles, Tomato Sauce, Corn, Onion) on a bed of Romaine Lettuce with an Okra side.

Was yummy.

You are weird. But you probably have faults too.


You guys have already proven wrong a coworker of mine who said just yesterday, and I quote:

"Oh yeah. You eat all that bland vegan food."

(She said "vegan" to rhyme with scum.)

This is the same chick who brings some sludgy brown meat and pototo looking thing to work for lunch at least twice a week. In fact, I don't think I have ever seen her eat food that actually had a colour. She's a brownivore.

Cheers!

Nothing too exciting tonight I'm afraid-breakfast burritos with a bit of mixed greens and some steamed carrots. Just 'cuz that's the way I like to rock my burritos.

The burritos are made with shredded fried potatoes and Yves breakfast links fried in one pan. In another I fry up some tofu scramblers which is basically just crumbled tofu with turmeric and onion powder.

I put it in a whole wheat wrap with tomato, Tofutti "Sour Cream" and salsa. Also a slice of Tofutti cheese.

The best part is it makes four, so, you know-lunch tomorrow.


Cheers!

There isn't really a "recipe" per se for the eggplant dish. It was inspired by some food "porn" posted by Isa Chandra Moskowitz on her website, the Post Punk Kitchen.

Basically what I did was slice 2 eggplants very thin, covered them with seasoned flour, dipped into soymilk, and then back into the flour again. Then I fried them in evoo, made up a batch of tofu ricotta, mixed it up with a package of thawed frozen organic spinach (time saver), and then spread some on each eggplant slice and rolled the lil babies up. I had some spare cheddar fyh so I decided to top each roll with a sprinkle. They were baked (covered with foil) for about 30 minutes at 375.
