Pasta Sauce

I recently began making my own pasta sauce using tomato paste because I don’t like the chunks of tomatoes that come in the store bought jars. I’ve never written anything down but have just added ingredients ‘to taste’ as I’ve gone along, here is the general recipe:

Thai Panang Curry with Kale and Tofu

This is my famous Panang curry recipe with kale, which has a slightly different twist and lots of veggies – resulting in a huge pot of steaming, nutritious joy.

Italian Hot Dog Spaghetti

Holiday “Meat” Loaf

A holiday meat-free loaf made from silken tofu, walnuts, vegetables, and bread crumbs.

Mock “Turkey” Slices and Dressing

Vegan dressing topped with seasoned tofu slices.

SDA Mini Meatloaves

Pack mixture into 8 lightly-sprayed muffin or custard cups. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 25-30 minutes.

Oven-Roasted Tom Tofu

A delicious, vegan main dish for your holiday celebration.

Pan Fried Tofu and Mushroom Gravy

This is my traditional Thanksgiving turkey substitute, adapted from the New Farm Cookbook:

“Meat” Loaf

This was posted by Faith on the McDougall list, and several people made it and liked it.

Deviled Tofu

Chickenless “Chicken” Salad

The trick to this great salad is the marinating and baking of the tofu.

Summer Tomato Salad with Citrus Tofu

1 (12-ounce) packages firm tofu, drained
1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice…

Black Bean Tofu Patties

Black Bean Tofu Patties for dinner, served with rice (spiced to a golden yellow color) and a selection of colorful, fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables, will look good enough to eat!

Polenta Lasagna

I often make this without the fake meat and cheese and add more zucchini (about 2 med.), peppers, and mushrooms, just to increase the veggie servings and keep it simple. It is good both ways!

Mixed-bean Casserole with Sausage

This comes from the McDougall newsletter. I made this in the crockpot last Friday, and we are STILL eating it! It makes an enormous amount. The taste is similar to baked beans–we’ve been calling it “Sweet Beans.” It’s good, but it’s more like a side dish, so don’t make it unless you are feeding a crowd, are planning to freeze some, or can figure out a way to halve the recipe.

    • Crispy Fat-Free Spanish Potatoes
      Lately I find that much of my cooking inspiration comes from going out to restaurants with few vegan options and being forced by hunger to order something I wouldn’t ordinarily eat. Last Saturday, after a long day of marching and standing at the Women’s March on Jackson, I wound up with some friends at one... […]
