Pregnancy- Vegan Dinner p.255: Kung Pao Tofu

Vegan Kung Pao Tofu

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Last night, I are a slice of tofu. If you can make anything out from that wonderful piece of blackberry photography, you will see that I browned it into oblivion, but that is beside the point. I ate it. If you recall, my first big tofu dish was [...]

Pregnancy- Vegan Dinner p.257: Vegetable Tofu Stir Fry

Tofu Stir Fry

Once upon a time, a semi-spoiled-but-mostly-not-snotty girl disliked Asian food. When her family would go to the Chinese buffets, she would be ever so slightly grossed out, enough that the only things she deemed edible were on the American side. You know, the greasy chicken and bland pizza. In an effort to keep her from [...]

Pregnancy- Vegan Dinner p. 236: Tofu Enchiladas

Vegan Enchiladas

My mom’s enchiladas are world famous. Okay, maybe midwest famous. But they are very simple. Let’s just say they involve lots of meat and cheese and NO seasonings in the sauce. This was my enchilada world. Don’t get me wrong…I love them. But that has really jaded my experience with enchiladas. I never, ever make [...]

Pregnancy- Vegan Side p.178: Sesame Carrot Quinoa Pilaf

Sesame Carrot Quinoa Pilaf

Typically, I’m a one pot meal kind of person- casseroles, soups, crock pot wonders, etc. So, when I find something like the Baked Ginger Orange Tofu that my family loves but that is not exactly a balanced meal, I’m in foreign territory. Everything looks strange and wonderful and intimidating, and I am afraid of insulting [...]

Pregnancy- Vegan Dinner p.206: Tofu-Vegetable Pot Pie

Tofu-Vegetable Pot Pie (crumbled crust)

For the past few days, I’ve had a summer cold. Maybe allergies. Whatever it is, I’m playing “big baby” and am pretty sure I’m dying. Runny nose, ears hurting, throat hurting, eyes burning…Yeah, all pretty much the last signs of life when you are mid-summer with a growing baby belly and entirely too much to [...]

Pregnancy- Vegan Dinner p.243: High Protein Pasta

High Protein Pasta

You probably can’t tell much about this from the picture. That’s because the “high protein” part of it is sneaky.

Pregnancy- Vegan Dinner pp.239-240: Fajitas

Fajitas in a Cast Iron Skillet

Thanks to this cookbook, I am coming to believe that I have been very shortsighted in my meal planning and didn’t even realize it. Asian food meant a simple stir fry and fried rice (egg rolls if I was adventurous), southern comfort foods meant fried-anything and mashed potatoes and Mexican food meant tacos or maybe [...]

Pregnancy- Vegan Dinner & Side p.258 & p.193 : Baked Ginger-Orange Tofu with Cabbage Zucchini Saute

Orange glazed tofu with cabbage, squash and brown rice

As time goes on, I am gaining confidence in tofu. Something I have learned of late is that tofu must be drained. For this one, I put a plate on top of the tofu to squeeze the water out. It really, really helps. Since we started eating frugally, I have made a lot of bulk [...]

Pregnancy- Vegetarian Lunch pp. 94: Egg or Tofu Salad Sandwich

Egg Salad

I love eggs.  I won’t sing the song that you now have in your head (you’re welcome) but they are quite yummy and chock full of nutrients. During the pregnancy with Fuzzy, I was pretty shortsighted on variety, and I almost wore myself out on them. Almost. Anyway, this stuff is fantastic. When I’ve made [...]

Pregnancy- Vegan Dinner pp. 143: Miso Noodle Soup

Miso Noodle Soup

While I love making soups, especially in the fall and winter, I always envision them taking a lot of chopping and hours of simmering before they are really good. Those soups are wonderfully delicious, but they don’t make for great last minute meals.
