Food and Food!

Hey guys. I feel like I've been doing a lot of cooking and baking (and eating) these past few days. On Tuesday I made the Scrumptious Banana-Nut Muffins from The Garden of Vegan. I don't have any nuts. These were really good! Michelle liked it with Tofutti cream cheese.
For lunch on Tuesday I made this wrap with sauteed vegetables. I had made a sauce for it with Nayonaisse, ketchup and cayenne pepper, and that was good. This is me eating it on a bench in Swope (the music building.) I took it with my cell phone..
Last night for dinner we made tacos! I used Lightlife Smart Ground for me and Chris' tacos, Michelle and Pat had chicken tacos. In mine is the Smart Ground there on the left, lettuce, tomatoes, and towards the right is Rice-a-Roni Spanish rice!
Tonight for dinner me and Michelle had barbecue chicken-style seitan that I had frozen since last month. We used her George Foreman! I've never used it before.. it was pretty neat. We also had steamed asparagus and roasted potatoes.
And we JUST finished making these cookies.. they're not entirely vegan (those are real M&M's) but the base is vegan. We actually veganized a chocolate chip cookie from her book Getting Started. They were really good! I'll give you the recipe.

Chocolate-chip cookies!

Preheat oven to 350.
Cream together 1/4 cup margarine and 1 cup packed brown sugar.
Add one "egg" (I used flax meal/water,) 2 tbsp agave, 1 tsp vanilla
Stir in 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt

Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and bake for 12-15 minutes. This recipe is really good!

mm, the banana muffin, taco, wrap, BBQ seitan (I LOVE my George Foreman grill, haha), and cookies look great! to completely veganize the recipe, you can use the Sunspire brand "sundrops" (basically, vegan M&M's).

Hi Tania! Awesome food(as always)! I esp. like the SWOPE photo. and we've been doing Smart Ground nachos lately that look like a flat version of your tacos - we gotta add the rice, though! And we LOVE the Foreman for grillin' our Yves hotdogs - just add mustard! :)

You cook and eat so well! I love the cell phone photo... that wrap looks so good, and taking a photo of it sounds like something I would totally do too!

You know, I've never used my foreman grill for seitan, I probably should try it.

Your sandwich outside the music building looks and sounds awesome. Veggies rule.
