What This Vegan Eats

I haven't been posting much in December, since work and new friends have kept me occupied. It feels as if I just shared photos of the various concoctions I've thrown together recently. With almost two weeks' vacation looming, I anticipate having more time to spend updating this thing. In the interim:

Grape tomatoes, scallions and roasted red pepper hummus on a small whole wheat pita. Steamed asparagus with Dijonaise sprinkled with nutritional yeast.

Sweet and spicy Thai coconut curry soup with red lentils, coconut milk, onions, turnip, carrots, green pepper, jasmine rice, green curry paste, organic brown sugar and keffir lime leaves.

Organic tofu marinated in tamari, dredged through whole wheat flour/nutritional yeast/black pepper and pan-fried. Dill pickle, hot banana peppers, mustard and tahini on whole wheat. Vanilla almond milk.

Spicy green Thai coconut curry with onions, carrots, green pepper, potato, tofu and water chestnuts. Sesame-ginger udon noodles with scallions.

Brown rice and lentil casserole with onions and soya sauce.

Plain (salt/sugar-free) organic peanut butter and organic strawberry jam on kamut bread. Hot cuppa tea.

Tofu marinated in tamari, coated in multigrain flour/nutritional yeast/garam masala, coriander and pepper and pan-fried. Tangy dipping sauce. Stir-fried green and orange bell peppers, zucchini, sprouts, crushed garlic, ginger, tamari and sesame oil.

Asian stirfry with a bit of mild leftover Thai curry paste and tamari. Onions, celery, carrots, green pepper, mushrooms, zucchini and mung bean sprouts.

Homemade seitan, ketchup, long macaroni noodles with seitan gravy & extra nooch, chopped spinach cooked with a bit of coconut milk & curry paste.

A wrap before the wrapping: Lettuce, tomato, red onion, hot banana peppers, dill pickle, roasted red pepper hummus, Vegenaise and ground flax.

Soup: Pinto beans, quinoa, tomatoes, collards, green beans and carrots. Seasoned with chipotle, smoked paprika, garlic and dried orange peel.

Whole wheat pita w/roasted garlic hummus, tofu/carrots/celery cooked with salsa & crushed garlic. Steamed frozen asparagus (which isn't half as nice as steamed fresh asparagus).

You're making me so hungry!

Stop. Making. Me. Hungry.

In just one post you managed to put to rest the ridiculous belief that a vegan diet is boring, bland, or limited.

Sorry if I inadvertently left anyone suffering to prove my point. ;-)

If anybody asks me again what the heck vegans eat, then I will have to show them this post. It's very inspiring.
