Finally, some cooking

So I finally got some cooking done. For breakfast, we had "Fronch" Toast from "Vegan with a Vengeance". This was the first time we had made this, and it was ridiculously good. We used Golden Pecan Bread from our local farmer's market.

For lunch, we had a lentil soup. This is just my basic soup that I throw in whatever we have lying around. This one contained: red lentils, fingerling potatoes, carrots, celery, garlic, shallots, zucchini, thyme, rosemary, and sage.

And for dinner, I used the Marinated Asian Tofu recipe from "Veganomicon" and grilled it. We had firm tofu that is made locally, but it was still a little too soft and didn't hold up to the grill as well as I would have hoped, hence, the little uneven pieces of tofu. Despite the random shapes, it still tasted great. I added that on top of stir-fried snow peas, carrots, broccoli, and green onions and rice.

Mmm. That fronch toast looks so good. I bet it tastes even better with your farmer's market bread. =)

Is that the Soy Shop firm tofu? I find that kind to be kinda soft as well. But it tastes great.
Your soup looks perfect, too.

It all looks so good! I actually made V-Con's Asian Marinated Tofu yesterday, but baked and julienned it and put it in sushi!

How awesome of you to take care of the blog! And cook!

The tofu looks delicious even if it didn't hold up very well. I think it's great that you're cooking and keeping up this blog! =)

These all look wonderful. I was just looking at the Italian tofu recipe yesterday and I've been meaning to make the Fronch toast for ages!

Since I'm new to the whole dairy-free thing and I LOVE french toast, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how to make it without eggs?? I've been craving it lately and yours looks so good!

Thanks everyone for the encouragement!

Jenna: Welcome to the world of pus-free cooking. The recipe I used is form Vegan with a Vengeance, which you absolutely must have. But I also found the recipe online here
