I am not sure where the oat & wanut patty recipe came from, but I have changed it some anyway.

oat-walnut patties:

2 C water
1/4 C Bragg Liquid Aminos
2 tbsp olive oil
2/3 C chopped walnuts (you can substitute pecans, but I've never tried it)
2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp "beef" broth powder
1 tsp poutry seasoning
2 C rolled oats (I like to use 1c quick oats & 1 c rolled oats for better texture)

Put all ingredients except oats in a large pot, still well, bring to a boil. Remove from head and stir in oats. Cover and let cool. Preheat oven to 350F. Form mixture into 3 inch patties and place on an oiled baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes on each side.


As for the orange ginger tofu, I have a seasoning packet thing that I've had for a while so I am going to try it as a tofu marinade. I hope it works.

We will be eating a lot of soup and bread this month. I have a lot of lentils in the cupboard so I am thinking a few meals of dahl and rice and papadums would be nice too!

Tonight the plan is Indian - I froze some chana masala "gravy" a while back, so that's defrosting. We have leftover basmati rice needing to be used, and I picked up some Garlic Naan at the store yesterday. Yay!

Saturday was pizza night. MIL and I split a cheeseless veggie pizza while DH had spicy ground beef.

Last night was homemade mac & cheese.

Tonight was quinoa and roasted broccoli, with grilled chicken for DH.

I slipped with the chili powder when making the chili. It was very spicy. We will have leftovers another night this week but I'm going to add another can of black beans with the hope of diluting the heat.

Tonight was cauliflower and green beans in Trader Joe's yellow curry sauce. Steamed Yukon gold potatoes on the side. Dinner was a hit with ds - especially the chocolate pudding I made for dessert.

Last night was mac and chreese from a box, but stretched a bit to make more by adding pasta and some nutritional yeast. I also added some sauteed veggies (onion, carrot, summer squash, mushroom, peas, tomatoes) and boca crumbles. And a few spices to jazz it up. We had that with cole slaw and bread. A little lame, but the fam gave it rave reviews.

I am completely at a loss as to what tonight will be. Possibly General Tso's tofu. We'll see.

I love this recipe and make it all the time! Good idea. I'll do that next with some cornbread on the side.

Tonight's dinner is Pasta, Lentils, and Artichoke Hearts from the low fat Moosewood. Dh and DD#1 will have feta on theirs, oh how I wish I could on mine. I will just eat it as is or sprinkle a little nutritional yeast on it. We are also having broccoli. I am always so boring when it comes to veggie sides. The most creative I get on a regular basis is sauteed greens with garlic. Otherwise it is just steamed veggies for a side

Later this week we will have Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burritos, also from the low fat Moosewood. I will use rice tortillas (can't have wheat). That is the night of my exciting side veggie mentioned above

I am focusing some on this cookbook because I can't have dairy because of dd#2 and the low fat Moosewood seems to make the cheese not an integral part of the meal.

And if I don't have enough leftovers later in the week I will make the chili burgers from this same cookbook for myself (dd#1 and dh will have pizza later in the week).

Last night we had black beans and rice.

Tonight is macaroni & cheese (again!) - actual cheese for the kids and DH, and nutritional yeast & EB for me. Oh yes, and peas. Not my most creative night!

tonight was "soul burgers" with homemade whole wheat buns and sweet potatoes. the burgers were only okay. the buns were great. dd is either slightly sick or massively teething and very clingy either way so it's a miracle i cooked anything (my mom stopped by to try to distract her for an hour

tomorrow is honey roasted lentils with squash and rice (usually i make bread when i do those lentils, but i'm keepin it simple until she feels a little better). question for those who have added veg to the lentils: do you need to shift around the ratio of liquids or anything?

Tonight I made vegan 5-way Cincinnati Chili. The chili is served over kidney beans, whole wheat spaghetti and topped with soy cheddar and red onions. So good! I made roasted broccoli on the side.

It was an easy meal to adapt for DS - he ate the beans, pasta with earth balance and broccoli. He declared "this is an awesom dinner, mama!"

Oh, this thread looks like fun! Can I join? I'm about to make garlicky and spices oven fries. I got laid off recently and am experimenting with lots of potatoes, because they're cheap . I made my own gnocchi (sp??) a couple times too, and it's so easy!

I am so glad that I learned about roasted veggies on this board! I can'tbelieve we every lived w/o them!

idaho chili (curried up a little) w/ left over tortilla chips
white bean and kale soup
something w/ cauliflower : not my favorite veggie
veggie stew and homemade bread

Last night we had vegetable cobbler with dumplings.

Tonight I'm going to try to find time to cut up stuff to make a red tofu curry. Love that coconut milk :.

The only other meal I have planned for this week is a crockpot ratatouille (sp??) to serve over pasta.

MittensKittens - is it really easy to make gnocchi? We like it but I've always just bought it pre-made.

chi_mama - the vegetable cobbler we had this week used a whole head of cauliflower. I prefer raw cauliflower myself but it wasn't too bad cooked in the cobbler along with all the other vegetables. Very much winter comfort food.

Last night I made the Pumpkin Ziti with Caramalized Onions and Sage Breadcrumbs from Vcon to bring to a (non-veg) potluck. My DH and friend and I thought it was really good, but hardly anyone else touched it for some reason (and they would have no idea it was vegan, so not sure what happened there). Maybe because it was at the end of the potluck line and everyone's plates were already full. Now we have tons of yummy leftovers, anyway!

Today:
Loaded Veggie Soup
Green smoothies to use up some lettuce that's about to go bad!

From that point, I don't have much of a mealplan because I've been taking each day at a time, because I have a client who's overdue. I'll probably make some Vegan Sausage again this week, because it's so freaking fantastic and I crave it. LOL I also will probably be making up a pizza soon, just because I have what I need for it in the house.

I have some tofu too, that needs to be eaten. But I'm so tired of tofu. I can't ever seem to cook it right. It's always too mushy and not crispy enough in the middle.

When I can get to the store, I will buying more seitan because I found IT'S THE YUMMIEST FOOD IN THE WORLD!! Actually, if I can make find some time, I'd love to make it from scratch.

Yeah, me too but the home made version is easy and sooo much cheaper, as well as tastier! I even made some fun shapes using cookie cutters to get my toddler to eat more

I got the recipe here (ignore the sauce thing, just look at the gnocchi making instructions) http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipes/10109?section=

I've been grilling tofu in a grill pan recently. I let it soak in soy sauce with garlic and ginger overnight, then grill it the following day. I then put a sweet chilli sauce on it.
