Here's a really easy salad (dressing) that Dan (my fiancé) and I have been eating literally on a daily basis:

Equal parts:
Almond Butter
Soy Sauce
Lemon Juice

Add: Garlic, pepper, 1 tsp sriracha sauce, agave syrup. Dash of rice vinegar.

Adjust to taste!

We make a salad of shredded greens (arugula, romaine lettuce, bell peppers, onions, carrots, cabbage, broccoli) with chopped cilantro, chives, and warmed cubed marinated tempeh.

SO filling!

Last night I think I discovered my new favourite dish!! Well food I guess: smoked tofu.

Does anyone else eat it? I cut it into strips and took a bite and I was overwhelmed by flavour! :D

I marinated them for about 20 minutes in a makeshift marinade of soy sauce, agave syrup and sriracha - I then grilled them on the BBQ.

It was DIVINE!!!!! :D

Jasmine, that sounds a bit like my calzone. We add a few more veggies but our "cheese" base is generally hummus made sort of like you made. Yum!

Last night one of my experiments went oddly well. In case anyone is interested here is what I made (it was SOOOOOOOO good!) Although I doubt it is very diet-friendly.

2 cans of chickpeas, drained, rinsed and coarsely chopped in food processor.
1 large jar of sundried tomatoes in oil, drained and also finely chopped in food processor (almost to a paste)
2 large onions, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic (ok I used like 4 or five but I am obsessed with garlic)
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon salt
up to 2 tablespoons white vinegar
juice of up to 1 whole lemon
pepper, black
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 box of baby spinach

flaky vegan pie crust recipe (I used earth balance shortening - 1 cup to 2.5 cups flour)

Sauté the onions until softened and add garlic and continue sautéing until unions just begin to caramelize.

Add chopped chickpeas and tomatoes, mix well and heat. Add herbs, juice, vinegar, and spinach and continue cooking until heated through and spinach is wilted and cooked. Add water and cook for longer if you like the chickpeas softer.

When ready, roll out your pie crust and either create a large pot-pie with the chickpeas as the filling, or make small individual pockets.

I made 6 individual pockets. They were SO yummy!

I also made a vegan soy-yogurt dill dressing. It was OK.

My obsession lately has been tofu fried in batter with almonds and lemon juice on top. The batter is flour and paprika. The tofu slabs are dragged through the mixture and fried in 1 tbs of canola oil. When the outside is brown, they're sprinkled with lemon juice and topped with almond slivers.

YUMMY!!!

In the recipe, it is raw. It tastes real good cooked too. Cook lightly so it still has some substance.

I also love it in green smoothies. Like spinach, it has a mild flavor. Kale has the most protein of any plant source (not including nits and legumes) so it's a staple around here. I use it as a flower bed border and eat it all summer, dehydrating anything that is left just before the first freeze.

So funny! I showed that recipe with the photo to a friend who loves quinoa. Her first comment was that the photo looked like the food was moldy. She got past the photo and made the recipe and naturally loved it. I love it too and it's easy to make with "normal" ingredients. WF has some really excellent recipes.

Talking about Whole Foods, have you tried their kale avocado slaw? It's incredible and quite easy to replicate in your own kitchen. Finely sliced kale, red onions, red bell pepper, mashed ripe avocado, lemon juice, salt and pepper. I added lime and cilantro to mine.

I did like the quinoa. And I have used dry hummus before for a coating with great results. They also have a dry bean dip/bean soup mix that is fun to experiment with. Such fun!

But on the quinoa, my kids enjoyed the texture of that coating. My parrots also enjoyed it.

Terje,
What did you think of the eggplant & quinoa? Was it too weird for you? I'm still experimenting. I found some dry hummous mix (from the health food store) I never used and used that to coat the eggplant. I liked it.

Wow! I never thought of quinoa. You just use the quinoa as is or do you grind it in a Vita-Mix or something first? Eggplant is easy to find now so I need to try your way soon!

Hi Terje,
I really enjoyed the eggplant -- what a great idea. I tried the cornmeal first, but it's degerminated (do they make whole grain cornmeal?) so decided to experiment with different alternatives. I next tried oat bran, and it tasted okay but the texture was a bit gummy. The third try was a winner. I put 2 plates in front of me. Put a pool of bragg's liquid aminos in one and a little pile of uncooked quinoa in the other. I dipped the eggplant first into the bragg's and 2nd into the quinoa. I laid the coated pieces on a baking pan and sprinkled them with Kirkland Organic No Salt Seasoning (from Costco). Easy Sneezy. They were great. Best right out of the oven -- just don't burn your tongue. In truth though, I made too much and still enjoyed snacking on them the next day. They are really filling. Thank you so much for the wonderful idea!

I bake the eggplant fries at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until crisp.

The eggplant fries sound great! What temp and time should they go for?

My favorite dish is without a doubt Squash N Onions. You caramelize an onion sliced in olive oil (careful with the olive oil). Then add cubed squash, acorn, kabosha, butternut, the harder varities. Then a pinch of salt to help break down the squash, dried oregano(makes it sooo yummy), and a bit of water. Then cover and let it steam at low heat for 20 minutes until soft. I swear it is like eating candy! I feel guilty eating it because it tastes so good.

Another dish I make weekly is whole wheat couscous with red, orange, and yellow bell peppers,scallions, garlic, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Sometimes I will add chickpeas...again another amazing quick to go food.

The difficult is done at once; the impossible takes a little longer.

Thanks, Terjegold, for that idea about eggplant. That might BECOME my favorite dish. I try eggplant all the time (I use Japanese eggplant, they are the ones shaped like Japanese Cucumbers), but it always turns out the same, kindof mushy. Not so great. I'm going to try the cornmeal/spice/bake style!

Eggplant is also really delicious when thinly sliced on put on the BBQ. Yummy! Especially if you marinate it ahead of time with either olive oil and S&P or another tasty marinade (I love a tangy mustard and BBQ sauce combo marinade).

I discovered something about eggplant. We slice eggplant then cut it into strips - looks like French fries. We keep it a bit wet or spray with olive oil then roll in cornmeal with whatever seasonings we like.

Then we bake it like French fries. Something about the cornmeal makes them bake up really crisp and great! Now I want to try that same technique with other eggplant recipes that need a crisp texture.

Hi SUEBEEDOO_12 - sort of off topic, but, how do you cook the eggplant to not be spongy? I've tried a couple times and my eggplant turns out terrible. I am tempted to admit defeat!

Another favourite dish of mine is Pad Thai too!

I love making tofu ricotta! I don't know how SUEBEEDOO_12 does it, but I take an extra firm tofu and put it in the food processor and add a sauteed mixture (onions, Italian herbs, sauteed and add a little bit of wine at the end--you can also throw in mushrooms, spinach or whatever to give you the desired ricotta filling--if you intend to make ravioli or something with them). It;s one of my DH's faves, too (he is not a vegetarian let alone a vegan). It's great like SUEBEEDOO_12 said or you can do ravioli, lasagna, manicotti, etc.

More ideas are in the Cafe Flora cookbook (where I originally got the ricotta recipe).

I have seasonal favourites and this and that, but the dish I probably can't live without is hommus. Even when I can't get the proper ingredients I'll try to make it out of something else. My life is one long ongoing hommus experiment :-)

1. Slice up 1 1/2 to 2 cups of squash. Works best if you mix your squash (i.e., yellow squash, zucchini, and butternut squash). But if you have just one kind of squash, that will do. Cut and put into your mixing bowl.

2. Dump in a 5 oz. can of stewed tomatoes, drained.

3. Cut 1-inch cubes some non-dairy cheese. If you can get 2-3 different ‘cheese’ types, that is best (non dairy cheddar, non dairy mozzarella, non dairy Swiss, etc.).

4. Add 1/2 cup of bread crumbs… mixed in with everything else.

5. Pour into your baking dish and evenly sprinkle bread crumbs over the top completely covering the squash mix.

6. Salt to taste. I prefer sea salt.
Bake in a 350 degrees pre-heated oven for about 20-25 minutes. The bread crumbs should be a nice toasty brown when done.

7. It’s wonderful.

Crumbled firm herb tofu sauteed with garlic, onions, rosemary; stir-fried with peppers, mixed with brown rice. A sprinkle of Braggs and I'm ready to dig in!

Hahaha indeed! It is a toughy to choose one! Maybe I will edit the question to plural.

I also don't know if I can really choose - I think it might be creamy-style Vegan pastas. Right now I am in love with a cashew-cream pasta (I add onions and brocolli) from The Vegan Table.

Also veg sandwiches OMG I do love them. With hummus and/or guacamole.

One dish?!? Wow...gee...um...just one?

Well, for a fancy occasion, I would have to go with Portobello Wellingtons (vegan version) from Cafe Flora's cookbook.

In the winter, it's a toss up between a tofu stew or Italian sausage soup (Tofurkey's italian sausages are yummy).

In the summer, I love a grilled tofu "steak" served with an artichoke and wild rice. Or a huge "salad" where it's five kinds of lettuces, grilled tofu chunks, all fresh grilled veggies of the season, and usually some udon noodles.

What about you?

Probably something with garbanzo beans and stir fry veggies. Then I make a sauce with Braggs, water, almond butter and hot pepper flakes and serve it over wild rice or brown rice.
