Faux Parm (Protest Kitchen)

Hi everyone! Yet another Protest Kitchen recipe this week, and the simplest of all of them so far, the faux parm was super delicious! 

I used it as a topping for spaghetti with Tofurky sausage, as well as for crescent rolls. 

Here’s Daisy, soaking up the sunshine… 

It didn’t take long before Cringer plopped down next to her, and right on her tail… 

Peace. :)

Eggless Salad with Black Salt (Protest Kitchen)

Hi everyone! The new recipe I tried this week was again from Protest Kitchen. The eggless salad was super simple to make, and I made slight modifications, using a can of chickpeas (which came to around 1 ¼ cups instead of the 1 cup the recipe called for) and only ¼ cup of vegan mayo. It was delicious, and I’ll definitely make this recipe again!

Five-Spice Baked Tofu (Protest Kitchen)

Hi everyone! For dinner last night, I made the five-spice baked tofu from Protest Kitchen; it was my first time using Chinese five-spice powder, but it certainly won’t be my last! The tofu was good, though quite salty, so next time I will use less soy sauce than is called for in the recipe.

Three Sisters Soup (Protest Kitchen)

Hi everyone! Last night I tried another recipe from Protest Kitchen – the three sisters soup; it was simple and certainly tasted good, but it was not very filling. Today I added a cup of orzo to the leftovers, which helped improve things! 

Here’s Leela, being her cute little self...

Bang Bang Tofu (Connoisseurus Veg)

Hi everyone! After hearing about it on My cat loves Daiya!, I knew I’d have to try the bang bang tofu from Connoisseurus Veg, and I’m so glad I did, because it was awesome! (I baked the tofu for 20 minutes at 425°F instead of frying.) 

with rice and mixed vegetables and some leftover sauce… delicious!

On Saturday, we got to meet Colby, the sweet cat being fostered by Zach’s family; he’s super cute and loves playing with yarn! 

And here’s Daisy, helping me meditate… 

Peace. :)

Creamed Spinach (Protest Kitchen)

Hi everyone! This week I tried my first recipe from a new book/cookbook that my sister got for me: Protest Kitchen by Carol J. Adams and Virginia Messina.

I made the creamed spinach, which was super simple and super delicious (I had it as a dip with bagel chips). I made notes of all the other recipes I want to try, so you can look forward to seeing more Protest Kitchen food here in the future.

Cringer takes her turn at the top of the cat tower; she was a little annoyed that I interrupted her bird-watching to get a pic, haha! 

Peace. :)
