Thread Starter 

So far this week;

 

Sun--GF pasta with "creamy" (used cashew cream) tomato sauce and broccoli. Turned out really good, even though I was making it up as I went and ds ate a ton.  I also made a GF bread pudding with coconut milk and it was fabulous!

 

Mon--stir fry with bok choy and tofu and br rice

 

Tue--Greek salad

 

Now I don't know what I'll do for the rest of the week. I have some veggie sausage that I need to use Got our CSA box today and there are two bags of fava beans. I have never cooked with them before. Anyone know something yummy to make with them???

Last night we had Salbury seitan, mashed potatoes, and green beans.

 

Tonight was Greek salads with hummus and tofu "feta"

 

Tomorrow will likely be spagetti with sausage, or atleast pasta of some sort since it is park day we always get home late and need somehting quick.

Yesterday was a fabolous salad with a fantastic dressing. (Mayo, sweet/strong mustard, juice of a lime and currypowder.) 

 

Today is my favorite pastadish: WW pasta (just a little for me, sadly) with a TON of fresh brussesprouts and parmesan. :D Found the recipe at Rachel Ray`s site. There is bacon in it, but I just make that on the side, and serve it to my son. :)

M: chick-pea patties, mashed red potatoes peas and gravy..soo good!

 

T: Pesto bread with lactose free cheese and hummus w/ carrots and baby cucumbers (was a late and last minute meal)

    Spinach and chick-pea stir fry with cashew sauce and brown rice for lunch

 

W: Spinach, walnut and lemon pesto with rainbow linguini

 

Th: Spinach red sauce with ww spaghetti

 

Fri: Pizza w/ left over spinach red sauce and chick-pea topping

 

...you may have noticed a lot of spinach in my meals.  That is because I bought a huge box of organic spinach at Costco and knew that I would not be able to eat this in salads!

Tomorrow I am making some vegan waffles and vegan bacon after I get back from my 5k race!!!joy.gif

lunch- will probably be something simple since I will be tired and will do peanutbutter sandwiches or grilled tofutti sandwiches

dinner will be some type of salad since it gets soooo hot here already!

 

 

Sunday breakfast-  apple with peanut butter  and orange juice or soy milk to drink

lunch--- vegan chicken drum sticks with vegan stuffing cut veggies and some black iced tea

dinner---- we dont usually do a big dinner usually this is movie night so it is popcorn and drinks (not healthy I know but it is still vegan without nasty butter) oh and we will have soy icecream neopolitan mmmmm yummy!

Mmm pesto sounds good. Going to have to make something with it next week! We've been eating throw together meals bc my daughter had surgery this week. Back to cooking tonight though.

 

Tonight is the tempeh with apricot jam recipe. Been meaning to try that recipe for a while now. Serving over rice. Also doing sauteed rainbow chard with figs and pine nuts.

Hoping to make bbq quorn tenders, asparagus, and a baked ziti with brocolli for my husband to give us some meals for the week ahead...

post #69 of 88

That tempeh with jam sounds sooo good would love the recipe... If you care to share it. praying.gif

I've been sick for a week now and do not feel like cooking so dinner tonight is

Quorn chicken nuggets, sweet potato fries, frozen vegetables and a small salad

 

Tomorrow night will be grill out night- corn on cob, "burgers" (black bean for me, reg for family) and watermelon

 

Finals are next week also, so I'm sure we will have some more meals from the freezer :) I bet the family will be glad when I actually start cooking real food again.

 You could try this: http://bonzaiaphrodite.com/2010/07/recipe-farmers-fava-bean-dip/  (btw~Sayward, if you read this-I love your blog!! Um, I kind of feel like a stalker now...)
 

 

Can I just say that you ladies are so creative with your meals!! I have been in Iraq since I switched to a veg*n diet and haven't been able to cook anything...I love these threads for all the inspiration and ideas I can make when I get home. I have about 50 pages of recipes and meal ideas to try! Back to lurkdom :)

Thai curry tonight. Before that, I think it was strawberry spaghetti.

post #73 of 88

I have made lots of miso soup with soba noodles, tofu and fresh veggies from our CSA  it seems to be dinner a couple of nights a week now. I've also been big on curry stir frys this month as well. I have made vegan pizza every weekend since the begining of April which my DD loves, I haven't made one yet this week and don't feel like running out in the rain for mushrooms and olives so itll have to wait for monday. Maybe I will get the dough ready tonight though. Yesterday we had pinto bean, chorizo, brown rice, avocado and salsa burritos. Right now I'm about to bake some bagels to use our tub of vegan cream cheese on before it goes bad.

PS I love this thread!

post #74 of 88

Great ideas - do you bake your bagels vs boil them ?  Ive always wanted to try.  I loved miso soup all winter- is it cool where you are or do you not mind hot soups in warmer weather?

Not much of a recipe. You slice a pound of seitan about 1/2 inch thick, brush with dijon musturd, dip in corn meal and fry. Take them out of the pan and make a brown onion gravy. Add the seitan back in and simmer a few minutes til warm. YUM!

 

Tonight we had ribz, corn on the cob, and cole slaw. Too bad I forgot to check if I had bbq sauce 1st. They just aren't the same without sauce.

Sausage and sauteed spinach over mashed potatoes (last Friday)

 

Yam and kale coconut curry (Sunday)

 

Stuffed bell peppers (stuffed with black beans, quinoa and corn), yesterday

 

Tonight I am making chili and cornbread since it's a cool, rainy day here.  Tomorrow, I will be out for dinner-time so I'll probably just leave some spaghetti for DH and DS, since that is one of the meals DS will reliably eat.

 

I'd love to try the chickpea cutlets people keep mentioning here. . .maybe for Friday night, since I try and make a more special meal that night.

Made some home made ww bread today.  YUM!

post #78 of 88

I also made ww bread yesterday- rainy and cold here.  Also a miso soup with quorn chicken.

post #79 of 88

corn on the cob, fried zucchini, cantaloupe and sunflower bread with raw milk lactose free cheese aged cheddar.  Tastes like summer!

post #80 of 88

We're having a summer meal too. Partially bc our oven is broken and the people can't get out here to look at it until Wed! Dinner tonight is chickpea tuna salad, caprese salad (heirloom tomato and avocado slices instead of cheese, topped with basil) and artichokes with vegan garlic aioli.
