Tofu Scramble, Po' Boy, Beanballs and Lemon Squares

We had lots of yummy food today. We started off with a scramble with soy sauce-marinated tofu, fingerling potatoes, red pepper, onions, and fresh herbs.

Then, one of the best things I have had in a while. The Chile Cornmeal-Crusted Tofu Po' Boy from V-con. Holy crap was this good. It was a bit labor intensive but well worth it. We made a tartar sauce to go with the fried tofu, cole slaw and pickles.

For din din, we made some Spaghetti & Beanballs, also from V-con. Lori helped out with these quite a bit. We just made the beanballs and used a jarred sauce. Ours turned out a bit mushy, but they were still delicious. I think we will bake them next time instead of frying.

I made desert, too. Once again, from V-con (I love that book, btw), we had the Lemon Bars. Lori just walked by and said how good they were as I writing this. And she is right; they were super good.

I've really been wanting to give that encrusted tofu a try. Definitely soon! Everything else looks great, too. Thank you for your comment on my blog, BTW. Tempeh still comes in third behind tofu and seitan to me, but I definitely like it. It all depends on the preparation. :)

Wuite a day of cooking!! Everything looks super tasty. Especially dessert... mmmmm. I think everyone has been having that mushy experience with the bean balls. I need to try that tofu in a sandwich, I just ate mine plain when I made it.
Can you make me breakfast sometime?

Ok i think i need some help. I just recently started to incorporate the vegan lifestyle but im having some issues. Im still new at this but i tried one of the sunshine burgers and was not happy with it at all. How can i ncorporate this new way of eating into my lifestyle? Any suggestions?

Tofu and potato scrambles are one of my favorite meals (and so easy too), not to mention, it is one way I can get the omni to happily eat tofu. :-)

That sandwich looks wonderful. I have been eyeing that recipe in VCon, may have to have this for a weekend meal when I have more time to cook.

You must have been busy in the kitchen! Those lemon bars look GOOD. I am jealous at work, wishing I could eat my screen. :-)

Oh my, talk about an endless sandwich!

As to your comment on my blog-- I don't think I've ever used an immersion blender, although I think we have one. Now I want to give it a try!

Hi Heather! I'm so glad you are starting to incorporate vegan food in your life. When I first became vegan, I made my way through all the fake meats and veggie burgers and what not, but what I found the most rewarding and satisfying was making food for myself. A great book for budding vegans is "How it All Vegan" by Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard. It has a lot of really good, easy-to-make recipes as well as tips on becoming and staying vegan. It also delves into non-food stuff like vegan soaps, clothes, and household cleaning supplies.

That lemon square looks like it re-defines delicious. I will dream of it and pray that Melisser makes some for our next vegan brunch. Or maybe I will stop being lazy and do it to it!
