Almost All-American Seitan Potpie- Veganomicon
This was the girls' first time working with seitan and they were a little freaked out by the look and texture of it. The V'con recipe calls for it to be baked, which makes it chewier, but it turned out alright with the rest of the ingredients. My friends made the crust, which turned out so flaky and tender...better than I could've done I have to say. A very good meal!
Cinnamon Rolls- Vegan Brunch
I made these the same night, although my friend also brought the cinnamon pinwheels from V'con....so good! These cinnamon rolls were delicious! Also, they freeze well. Just warm them up for 30 seconds to soften them up. Mmmmmmmmm. Perfect breakfast on the way to work!
Tempeh Crab Cakes with Remoulade- Vegan Brunch
These were also part of our vegan cooking night. I am never successful with patties and this night was no different, although I can at least share the blame with two other people since it was a team effort. The patties had to be made very small in order to stick together, and most of them still fell apart while frying. However, they are delicious and we ate these up with remoulade very fast! So now I just have to figure out how to make them look nice too! They don't taste like crab, although there's nori in them, but they're good on their own. Excuse the fluorescent lit picture!

This was our weeknight meal. It was quick and easy, like the book says, which was perfect on a night when I had a homework deadline. Pinto beans, corn, avocado and lime, tomotoes, lettuce, salsa, cheese and sour cream. Yum! Nothing fancy, but it hits the spot.
