    Don't really time it but around 20 minutes to 1/2 hour or however long it takes me to prep the rest of the meal.

    A yummy way I have been eating tofu lately is to cut it into rectangles; put it in an oven-proof dish with thin sliced onions; sprinkle salt, pepper, sage, and grated cheddar; drizzle with olive oil; and bake until the cheese bubbles/crisps a little bit.
    This sounds good! Might add some grated asiago or parmesan to kick up the flavour.

    I'm making a stew-type thing with adzuki beans, kombu and butternut squash. If it's awesome, I will post the recipe. It's super easy.

    Yesterday I made one of my favorite meals recently.

    Roast potatoes (and whatever else you feel like... cauliflower, onions, etc) sprinkled with olive oil and some herbs like thyme, sage, rosemary, salt and pepper, etc. I cut them small and did 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 min.

    While it's roasting, chop up some garlic and cook with olive oil. Add the chopped stems from swiss chard and cook a little while. Add the leaves and some chopped tomatoes, with some more rosemary and salt and pepper. Then when it's almost done add a can of drained/rinsed white cannelloni beans and cook until they are heated.

    Serve the beans and chard on top of the roasted potatoes. Very hearty, well-rounded, delicious, and good for you! It is actually vegan, but you can garnish with parmesan cheese too and that is delicious.

    One of my favorites is pasta in a dressing of equal amounts of balsamic vinegar and olive oil (use Spanish--Italian is too bitter for this dish). Add about 6 cloves minced/crushed raw garlic, some sea salt, and a tiny amount of fresh cracked black pepper. I roast yellow and red peppers in the oven, peel off the skin, cut them into strips, and then put them into the dressing. Sometimes I roast red onions and add them. Then I mix in the pasta. I use spaghetti because I have to use rice pasta but if you can eat wheat/gluten, try linguine. Let the flavors meet and marry for a while...30 minutes is good. Then sprinkle with roasted pine nuts. You can also grate a little parmesan over it. I prefer a red wine to drink with this.

    The downside is that you will reek of garlic for days after eating this dish. But life is too short not to forgo the pleasures of this dish. There is just beauty in how these simple ingredients create such a sensory delight.

    I'm not vegetarian, but I don't consume meat other than fish & fowl, typically.

    I make a pretty mean portabella mushroom burger, though. Healthier than ground beef, and, imo, just better overall.

    I made this for my friend last time she visited me. Was a hit.

    Ingredients:

    -1 large portabella mushroom
    -pinch of sea salt, black pepper, and any other spices you may like to add. I added some chili powder.
    -about 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    -any other 'burger toppings/condiments'' you like (For our burgers, I used a slice of nonfat cheddar, tomato slice, onion, lettuce, & spicy guacamole [pre-made, Wholly Guacamole 100 calorie packets in most dairy cases at grocery stores])
    -1 light whole wheat or 12 grain hamburger bun

    Directions:
    -wash the mushroom, slice off the top. Set the stalk aside for later use, if you like [I sliced mine up & put it in a salad the next day]
    -brush mushroom cap lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle seasonings on both sides. Let it soak in for about a half an hour.
    -sautee on a nonstick skillet on medium heat for about ten minutes, flipping occasionally, until it feels tender/much of the excess water is gone. Add cheese right before you remove from heat so it melts.
    -place on a paper towel for a minute, if your cap is still a little too moist [this is rarely a problem]
    -serve on burger bun w/condiments [add chips like I did for my friend, picture below. I made myself baked sweet potato fries on another occasion]
    -enjoy- it's messy as hell, and I couldn't finish mine, but it was still good reheated.

    Default vegan pumpkin bread.

    I'm always looking for ways to cut out excess fats/sugars in baked goods [as well as add whole grain, etc], without sacrificing taste/texture. Food is fuel, right? Should be worth the calories, to the body. Anyway, my latest concoction's been successful, and happens to be vegan-friendly.

    Ingredients:
    *3/4 of a 15 oz can pumpkin puree
    *1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    *1/4 cup water [or soy/almond/ricemilk, if you prefer]
    *1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (hodgson mills is really good)
    *3/4 cup sugar OR [what I use] 6 tbsp splenda sugar blend
    *1 tsp vanilla
    *1 tsp baking soda
    *1 tsp baking powder
    *1 tsp cinnamon
    *1 tsp nutmeg
    *1 tsp ginger
    *1 tsp sea salt
    *1/2 tsp cloves
    *1/2 tsp allspice

    *[topping]- mix 1/4 cup brown sugar OR [what I used]- 2 tbsp splenda brown sugar blend with 1/2 tsp cinnamon; set aside. You could also add almonds or pecans, etc, to this [I have none onhand, today].


    Directions:

    1.) Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2.) In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, applesauce, sugar [or splenda blend], water, & vanilla. Mix until smooth.
    3.) In a separate med. bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients with a wire whisk.
    4.) Pour dry mixture into the 1st bowl. Stir until large lumps disappear. Batter will be lumpy & much thicker than typical quickbread batter. In fact it'll seem nearly doughy. Do not overmix.
    5.) Spray nonstick coating on an 8x8'' baking pan. Pour mixture into pan, evening out with a spoon/spatula, if need be. It won't look all smooth & pretty, but it tends to even out more as it rises.
    6.) Sprinkle brown sugar/cinnamon over the entire top of the pan. This isn't a crumb topping; it more or less adds texture to the top portion and some additional flavor/sweetness.
    7.) Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick/knife comes out clean when inserted through the center.

    I may post a picture later. Comes out perfect every time.

    I think I've passed my domesticity quota for the year..

    Had two large bags of baby carrots left over from a party last weekend. So I made yellow + red lentil soup with one of the bags (also has onions, garlic, ginger, tomato, and some spices like cumin and stuff). Pureed most of it when it was done cooking to make a nice creamy texture, a can of coconut milk too. I added the last of a bag of cashews as well, they got soft while it was cooking. Kind of a mish-mash of what I had on hand. I think it turned out well though.

    That is using up one of the bags at least. I'm thinking of making carrot pie (?) (!) with the other bag. Roast the carrots like you do for pumpkin pie, add the egg and cream and spices.
