Tofu No-Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce- The Vegan Table
My first recipe attempt from The Vegan Table. This was actually easier to coordinate than I thought between all the layers and the sauce making. And it's delicious!! It would be easier to make if it was a slab of tofu, since the scrambled tofu falls off....but nevertheless it's perfectly seasoned. I would eat just the scrambled tofu from this recipe too. I had some difficulty with the sauce and it's thickening, and then there was too much lemon juice, but I managed to tweak it a bit to make it good.
I feel like I've been neglecting most of my cookbooks in favour of a select few books. I can't let them feel that way so I've decided to make my way through all of my books and make a few things from each.
Spinach Artichoke Dip- How It All Vegan
This is pretty good served with tortilla chips. I'd like it to be a bit creamier and more of a dip consistency, but it's a start.
Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Apple Soup- How It All Vegan
I wanted to make a fall-ey soup, and felt daring, thus the apple....but it just didn't float my boat. Maybe because I used Granny Smiths and it made the soup a bit sour...I don't know. Plus it was the consistency of baby food. The picture doesn't show it well but the colour was beautiful. Also, too much pepper. When will I learn to do it to taste and not blindly follow the recipe?!?
I was going to have a baking day in the kitchen but I feel a killer headache coming on...
