a few of our vegan family favorites

Another Yummy repeat- General Tao's Seitan
Nope its not baby food.. This one of my all time favorite soups! It comes from the cookbook Vegan Vittles, Cheddary cheeze soup. I usually make it w/ the broccoli this time I made it w/ cauliflower. Basically it uses silken tofu and nutritional yeast flakes as the cheeze base. I am totally addicted to the nutritional flakes (does anybody else out there have this "problem"?). We call them cheezy flakes in our house, Emma and I often have cheezy flakes on toast or bagels in the morning. Oops, I digress- back to the soup....I have to puree it all for my children's sake-they prefer their veggies raw. Neither like cooked carrots, one doesn't like visible onions the other one doesn't like cooked cauliflower. They both prefer this soup over the kind I make w/ broccoli. I also made a whole wheat beer bread - I often substitute the all purpose flour with a combination of spelt and almond meal- it always works out great. I have also used different kind of beers w/ great results. It seems the lighter beers give it a more of a sourdough kind of taste, I however prefer to drink darker beers and those work fine. It is a very forgiving recipe.
Yep, more enchiladas.

I also have the same YN "problem" that you do. I love Vegan Vittles. It's full of good, tasty, simple food.

Your General Tso's looks great. [Who the hell was General Tso, anyway?]

I made the General Tao's tofu from vegweb today...coincidence! It was so yummy.

I love Vegan Vittles too. The cover is the "look" I'm trying to go for in my kitchen. I just think I could melt in a home like that.

Anyway... I LOVE that soup. I make it often, with big chunks of broccoli. I find it divine. And bizarre. I mean, who would think of boiling onions? This is the only recipe I make in which I boil onion. :) But it works! And is soo easy!

I looove nutritional yeast! It's an awesome vegan source of B12 as well. I use to love (before I went Pagano) to make burritos with a Nutritional yeast cheese sauce, salsa and Yve's veggie ground round. My stomach is growling right now just thinking about it. It was so simple and yet so tasty.

The cheese sauce I'm talking about can be found here. You should try it sometime. It's definately one I use when I'm craving cheezy stuff.

The tao's tofu/seitan looks great! i saved the recipe!

I have the same "problem" with nutritional yeast. Even Britty does too now. We are addicted!! You should see our mashed potatoes. i think we have more nutritional yeast in there than potato! It's so good!

Yes to the nutritional yeast! I don't worry about my addiction - it's cheap and full of B-12.

Your dinners look super!

I could put nutritional yeast on just about everything. It's so good. I've made the General Tso's (you blogged about it before) and its definitely a keeper. Yum! The soup looks great. I like the idea of using cauliflower.

Another vote for those with a NY problem. I make this fake parmesan with it: toasted sesame seeds whirred a little in the food processor with NY. It's so good on toast, pizza, - well, anywhere you would put parmesan. I'll admit, though, it took me a few months to get used to it :F

Hi, my name is Nikki and I'm addicted to NY. :)

I call it nooch in my house...but of course the boy always thinks I'm saying nude so he gets confused...

Another Nutritional Yeast addict here! I just got the "Uncheese Cookbook" because I figured it would have lots of recipes using NY...I am so excited to look through it! But, recipe or not, NY ends up on just about everything I eat!

I read your response over on Vivacious Vegan's post and really admire it. You said a lot of things that I wanted to say, but had already taken up too much space!!

Thanks for the warm feelings :)

And...of course, your food pics look great!

First off, happy birthday to your daughter! Sorry I missed that~
I recently food tastier nutritional yeast that I had had before in a new bulk bin - and I'm particularly fond of the nutritional yeast/almond/sea salt blend, especially on popcorn = SO GOOD.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
