Back to the kid food- Vegan pizza, tacos, mac &cheese OH MY

From the Real Food Daily some yellow split pea curry soup. Zeenes suggested the tacos from the Real Food Daily in a comment from my last post how to use up some of the left over seitan that the kids weren't wild about. OH MY THIS IS SO GOOD!!!! Thanks for the suggestion!
My taco picture didn't turn out so here is little Emma enjoying hers!

The kids had a guest over one night and I made them a separate dinner. Which then gave me the opportunity to do a very spicy grown up meal. From the Flavors of Korean the cucumber salad (oi sangchae), cucumber noodles (oi kuksu muchim) and fiery tofu (maeun tubu bokum). All of the recipe use the spicy gochujang paste. Honey thought the tofu was the best he had ever eaten w/ the carmelized onions it seem to have a slight BBQ taste to it. Emma LOVES the noodles and has been eating them for lunch.
Some asparagus soup I made up the recipe using a box of leek and potato soup as the base and then added a dash of this and a dash of that. In the end it was okay.. but, not great. From the Vegan Deli I made the curried tofu salad. I was trying to introduce the kids to a tofu sandwich and thought this would be a good one to start with. It has tofu, vegan mayo a bit of curry powder, crush pineapple and raisins. A bit too sweet for my liking but, the kids ate most of their sandwiches. It surely wasn't one of their favs. Not a great photo but that's some baked mac and "cheese". It seems we haven't had in a while and the kids just go CRAZY for it!

Another use for some the left over seitan.. Honey got creative and added some sausage like seasonings to some finely diced seitan fried it up and added some to our pizza. Believe me its under all those tomatoes, green onions, red onions, red pepper and mushrooms so is a bit of veganrella mozzarella. Thanks Honey! Now I will leave you w/ this shot of Emma on her snow slide Daddy helped make for the kids over the weekend. Kleo asked if maybe this was normal for us to have sooo much snow this time of year.. Well, nope under this very spot where Emma's slide is where the tulips were coming up last year at this time. The weather man is calling for YET ANOTHER 8-12 inches headed our way tonight.. only to turn to RAIN tomorrow.. Ohhh what a mess.

Everything looks so good! I am especially drooling over the spicy korean meal... you've single-handedly made me crave korean food for the past week! That pizza looks great too.

Oh, and I hear you about the snow. Alaska and Upstate NY seem to be the last hold-outs! We got some more snow in the last couple of days, and today's high temps are in the 20's...

Your little one seems to be enjoying the slide. Your food looks yummy. I will have to try the tofu curry sandwich. I make eggless salad often, but the additions of pineapple sound yummy!

I love the pic of your daughter sliding down the snow! I wanna do that!!! All your food looks yummy…especially the Korean stuff. And I like the idea of pineapple in a sandwich too…yum!

WHAT FUN!! Oh that is such a great, great post. I love seein' Emma chowin' down on that taco and having a blast in the snow. Does it get better than that?! No way!

Your food is so amazing... i'm not sure which i'd want to dive into first, but there's not one dish i'd want to miss!

How nice that you made a Korean-style salad there with the tofu. Carmelized onions are one of life's great pleasures, at least to my palate! Emma's a lucky little lady, for sure with the noodles.

Mac 'n' cheez is something i am SO glad i never have to give up because of "animal" ingredients. This is a treat for sure...

And thanx for answerin' my nosy query there, too... i miss the snow sometimes, i do! It's hard to believe you had tulips there this time of year last year.

Here's hoping for a happy and healthy and sunny Spring for you and your lovely family...

I'm glad you liked the tacos! I love them too! That cookbook is fantastic.

Thanks for the mac and cheese recipe...I have been seriously craving some. I know what I'm having for dinner tonight!

If you want some great sandwiches with tofu in them, I suggest Garden of Vegan's lunch/sandwich section. Delicious!

I just love your kid food, esp. when there's pictures of kids actually eating it!

I haven't worn a jacket in a week and it is great! I can't imagine being in all that snow.

I've been over visiting and reading but so short on time that I couldn't comment. Boy oh boy! Have you been cooking up a storm. I've yet to try tofu salad sandwiches. I'm a bit "chicken" - HA! but the photo looks delicious. Heck, everything looks delicious! Oh, the snow & rain fiasco. I know that well. We went through that a few times this year. Thankfully, it's been pretty warm here (40-50F most days) and a lot of it has melted. For you, I think it might take a while. Good excuse to stay inside and cook!

Daddy is awesome! I would have loved to have a snow slide. Weather here is 74 degrees and it's 8:30 at night. I couldn't imagine living in Alaska!

Hi there! You're blog is fantastic! I told my sister, a new vegan, about it and she's really enjoying it, too! Hope to see you on the VF forum, too! There are some welcome messages for you there :)

I love the pic of your daughter and the taco -- it almost looks as big as her face (lol).

We complained because we had a few snow flurries this weekend. I'm happy we didn't get as much snow as you had (although it does look like fun to play in the snow).

Wow, it sure has been a while since I popped my head in over here! Looks like you've been getting very adventurous with the Korean food. That picture of Emma and her taco is adorable. :)

Everything looks so good! Love the grown up spicy meal!

You know, your kids would probably dig a tofu/eggless type salad.. just mix up a tiny bit of grated onion and some celery with vegenaise, sweet relish, mustard and salt and pepper...

 
At 7:28 AM, Blogger Melody Polakow said...

duh.. and obviously, crumbled extra firm, drained tofu!
