Asparagus two ways

It's asparagus season in Ontario! So exciting! I pretty much eat it every single day for a month, or until the growing season ends. I mostly eat it roasted, but I do like it steamed as well, on pizza (forgot to take a picture) or in a soup. Here's a pic of roasted asparagus with 'Spicy Thai Mung Bean Burgers' from this recipe: It's a pretty good recipe. Sort of mushy burgers, but tasty. I think I overcooked my mung beans, anyway- I'd never cooked them before.

And now for a less oily way to make asparagus - soup! I used this recipe:, but I added about a cup of white kidney beans for protein, iron and creaminess. And a potato. It was made even more fabulous by grated smoked cheddar flavoured vegan cheese.

Pesto and Grilled Tofu Sandwhich

I received a cast iron grill pan for my birthday, and it is a bitch to clean but I really like it! I marinated the tofu in a mixture of half tamari and half balsamic vinegar and grilled it. I added some store-bought vegan pesto, sliced avocado, and broccoli sprouts. Yum!!
