BBQ Tofu on Baby Spinach and Quinoa

My bf threatened to order-in, but I promised I could whip up something fast and delicious within a half hour- and I did!
I lightly fried the tofu on both sides and then I poured a home-made bbq sauce (super easy to do!) on top, and that did its thing while the quinoa steamed. I put the hot tofu on top of the spinach so that the spinach lightly wilted. Yum yum!

Vegan Tuna/Egg Salad

Vegan tofu salad! Actually mine turned out more egg-salad-ish because it was very saucy. This is the recipe I used, so if you want your less saucy .. make less sauce.

1 can chickpeas
1/3 package silken tofu
2 pickles, sliced
1 tbs whole grain mustard
juice of half a lemon (or more)
some green onions, including while bit
salt + pepper

Mush chickpeas in a food processor until they are mashed up. Remove the chickpeas from the processor and put them in a big bowl. Then put tofu, pickles, mustard, tofu and lemon in the food processor and process. Add to chickpeas. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!

Mu Shu Tempeh

My boyfriend cooked tonight! He chose a recipe I wouldn't have- which is good, beause I get into food ruts. I've never had "mu shu" before, vegan or otherwise, but it was really good! The wrap is just flour and water, and the insides are tempeh, green onion, ginger, mushroom, bamboo shoots, and some other stuff. Recipe from 1001 Low-Fat Vegetarian Recipes.

Paella Vegetariana

A great recipe from a fabulous new cookbook called Vegan Express. This wasn't that "express" because I used brown rice, but I wasn't in a hurry.

These are homemade falafel patties. I just mashed up some chickpeas and added some ground flaxseeds+water for stickiness, some breadcrumbs, lots of cumin and dried parsley. Then I fried them up in my cast-iron pan with some oil. We didn't have any pita or fresh lettuce or fresh tomato to go with it.. but it was still tasty.
Served with tahini sauce (tahini, lemon juice, dried parsley, water,..). Yum!!

...and here is my cat having a stare-off with a squirrel on my second-floor window sill:
