Random Food

Last night's dinner, caramelised tofu served with brown rice. I first made this tofu when I lived with my parents, but then I sort of forgot about it until I saw it on someone's blog last week. I am not ripping you off, but I really can't remember which blog posted about sticky tofu! But anyways, it was good!
Pasta bake. Elbows and spirals mixed with sauce that was full of eggplants, olives, capers, and tomato. Topped with breadcrumbs, and then some fresh basil and parsley sprinkled on top right before serving.
Oatmeal raisin pancakes. Not super great. If I make this again, I'll try soaking the raisins before hand. And maybe using quick oats, instead of rolled.
Veggie burgers! A joint effort, Andy made the mix and I formed them into patties. The burger itself is mashed potato, spinach, spices, and peas. We had them on mulit-grain bread with soy mayo, hummus, tomato, cucumber, beet root, mustard, and caramelized onions. Really yummy, but buns would have been better--the bread fell apart! That's half a burger on the side, and you can see how green the burgers were--that's the spinach.
Some flowers Andy picked for me. They came from the shrub in front of our house.
With a belly full of veggie burgers, Andy had nothing to do but Sudoku!

that caramelized tofu, pasta, pancakes, and veggie burgers look rather scrumptious; and those flowers are gorgeous!!

I'm going to go for a different angle and say that pasta bake looks amazing!! The last pasta bake I had was from a jar (hardly inspiring). I might have to give something like this one a try, yum!

I'm with Vege on that one and stating that if I had to choose [oh, I can't have both?] I'd go for the pasta bake too! :D

Yay for carmelized tofu!! The pasta bake and burgers look really yummy too.

Thanks so much for the email today too, Theresa. I'll write back properly later tonight, but just have to say now, your timing with that was amazing.

I love sticky tofu! I kind of ripped off my recipe from the vegan lunchbox, and it's just tofu, brown sugar, and soy sauce. SO good, with brown rice and maybe some broccoli on the side. I love the look of your veggie burgers- I love when they look more like "veggie" than "burger"! You guys are eating well in your new place!

That tofu looks great! So does the veggie burger, I have yet to make my own.
