I need to get back into these threads...they are so wonderfully inspiring!

Tonight we had hot-from-the-oven apple cinnamon muffins and banana/blueberry smoothies.

This is going back a few days, but I just typed out this recipe for someone else and it was easy to cut and paste here.

This is my favorite lasagna recipe, it is from Robin Robertson's "Quick Fix Vegetarian":

Beat the Clock Spinach Lasagna

8 lasagna noodles
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 pound firm tofu, drained and crumbled
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 (24 ounce) jar of marinara sauce
1/2 cup shredded soy mozzarella

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the noodles in a long plastic container or a tall heatproof pitcher (If your container isn't large enough to hold the noodles you can break them in half to fit.) Add just enough hot water to cover the noodles and set aside.

Squeeze the water out of the spinach and place in a large bowl. Add the tofu, lemon juice, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Drain the noodles. Do not blot dry.

Spoon a layer of the marinara sauce into the bottom of a 9 by 9 inch baking dish. Top with half the noodles. Spread half of the tofu mixture evenly over the noodles. Repeat with a layer of the remaining noodles. Top with a thin layer of sauce and then the remaining tofu mixture, ending with the remaining sauce. Top with the soy cheese. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake 10 minutes more. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

My oldest is visiting this weekend. :

I've already made her a bunch of frozen vegan soups to take back home with her.

Tonight will be yellow split pea dal, basmati rice, and spicy spinach and tomatoes. I think I'll make a pineapple upside down cake too.

Tonight is pizza and movie night. I've got dough rising in the bread machine, and I'm thinking of topping it with tomato sauce and cashew cheeze sauce, and some spinach leaves.

We'll have fresh pineapple for dessert.

And I think we're watching Penelope.

We've had tofu breakfast burritos for two nights in a row. Man they are yummy.
post #158 of 191
I'm cheating, because we're cooking big for lunch today: three-bean chili (kind of inspired, replaced 3 bell peppers that we didn't have on hand with chopped carrot, zucchini and delicata squash - should be interesting!) and some skillet cornbread. It's almost ready, and I can't wait! :
post #159 of 191
Dinner tonight is rice with chik'n tenders, veggies, and gravy with sweet potato fries and gf/df chocolate chip cookies for desert!
