Teriyaki Double Take

Teriyaki double take! I made this sauce from and DR liked it so much I made two dishes with it!

First, teriyaki tofu wrap. Press, slice, marinade. Bake and wrap with some spinach. Second, I used the marinade to soak some homemade seitan (from vcon) before frying it up in a pan. I steamed some broccoli on the side and then tossed them together. Cashew bits completed the dish. Both were quick, easy, and very tasty!

Three Bean Salad

This is another test recipe for my friend's new book. I love making her recipes - easy, fresh, and she has a special talent for combining fun flavors in new ways!

This salad called for a can of mixed beans - black, pinto and another one I forget. I've never seen these in my life! Apparently upstate NY lacks mixed beans. Or I need to look harder.

Beans are a great salad addition, especially if you dress them in something tasty. These have lime as a dominant flavor and are awesome after soaking in the fridge for a couple days. This mix is garbanzo beans, black beans, and edamame.

BBQ Tofu with Mac and Kale-Shroom

This was a quick meal put together on the desire from the crew for something "tofu" and "mac'n'cheese"--a pretty standard love affair at my house.

The tofu is simply pressed and baked with bbq sauce from the store. I kicked myself afterwards since Vegan Table has a SIMPLE homemade recipe. Live and learn - at least the bottle will be fun to reuse!

Mac'n'cheese is also Vegan Table. I LOVE this recipe and my crew love the cheese sauce it makes. I like how light it is. It is also runny enough to slop up into the noodles.

Lastly, kale and mushrooms. I roasted the mushrooms in oil and vinegar and added them to the kale, which I like to make in my steamer (so easy!). Splash on a little more vinegar and you're set!
