I had some red wine because I am going to put it in my henna mix, so I decided to put some in a tomato sauce as well. The baby eggplants were roasted in the oven with olive oil, dried basil and minced garlic.
The pasta sauce: onion, can of chopped tomatoes, red wine, basil, salt, mashed chickpeas.

I found some egg-free wonton wrappers and I was excited to use them. This was delish, but really time-consuming. I can't imagine how long it would take if I had made the wrappers by hand!
The sauce is sauté-d onions and a can of organic tomatoes. I was not about to make a (non-lazy) sauce after all the ravioli making!
I stir-fried some mystery greens that I got in Chinatown, onion, mushrooms and medium-firm tofu, and then I added some black bean sauce from a bottle. I used Thai red rice, which is like brown rice.. but more fun.

First I fried some chopped onions and mushrooms with a tsp of olive oil, some salt and lots of pepper, and then I poured the "omelet" mixture over top:
1/2 cup whole wheat four
1/2 cut chickpea flour
1 tbs nutritional yeast
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of tumeric
This "omelet" mixture is a variation on a recipe in Vegan Vittles.
I let that solidify, and then I put some Ajvar (awesome red pepper spread from Hungary) on top before folding the whole thing over.

This spinach-tofu-filo pie was for a Cyprus- themed dinner party. I throw a dinner party every few weeks and we are going through the alphabet for which country we do.
This pic is from the next day, so it looks a little less photogenic than it was. It was delicious! I even found whole wheat filo pastry. The recipe was from Vegan with a Vengeance.

Woo, this wasn't much work but boy does it look classy!
The crepe is whole wheat flour and chickpea flour, and it is basically the Eggless Omelet recipe from Vegan Vittles.
Inside are purple potatoes chopped and roasted with lots of garlic.
The sauce is 'nacho cheez sauce' from, yes, the Uncheese Cookbook. It has chickpea flour in it, too. Lots of protein!

I gave in to peer pressure and made the gluten "ribs" from FatFree Vegan Kitchen, and I am so glad I did!
I used the BBQ sauce recipe from The Garden of Vegan and it was perfect.
The side dishes are quinoa and steamed broccoli with fresh lemon juice, sea salt and fresh-ground black pepper.

I threw together the dip, I can't really remember what was in it.. but I think it was:
white kidney beans
pan-fried eggplant and zucchini
fresh minced garlic
some italian seasoning
It wasn't amazing, but it was good with the veggies.
This is the "Baked Macaroni and Cheez" recipe from The Uncheese Cookbook. I added breadcrumbs on top because I had some, and instead of blending all of the red pepper I left some chunks. This is a cashew-based "cheese" sauce. Yum!
