I made delicious tacos last night. The filling is made with Helen's Kitchen veggie ground with sauteed onions, tomatoes and spices like cumin, paprika, oregano, garlic powder and chili powder. I pan fried the corn tortillas in oil. Mmm.

My favorite sandwich: hummus, avocado, chili jam and salad greens on toasted bread, seasoned with lime juice (or lemon), salt and pepper.

I was watching The Barefoot Contessa during lunch break at work the other day and Ina was making a couple of soup recipes, one of which was this lentil and sausage soup. I've never used french green lentils before so this was a first. I substituted Tofurky Kielbasa for the meat version. It is so hearty and beautifully seasoned with cumin, thyme, onions, garlic, leeks, carrots and celery.

This is the preparation for Linda McCartney's Vegetable Hotchpotch which is from her book "Linda's Kitchen". Gardein steak chunks, onions, potatoes, herbs, white beans and vegetables all layered and then covered with veggie stock.

A childhood favorite revisited. I have always liked Jell-o with Cool Whip. Now that I'm vegan, I have to find animal-free products. Found this brand of strawberry jelly from Samosa House in Culver City which has a small market that sells international goods.

This recipe is ridiculously good! I used the "Seitan Portobello Stroganoff" recipe from Vegan With A Vengeance. I used two 8oz. cartons of cremini mushrooms and replaced the seitan with 2 sliced Field Roast smoked apple sausages. The amount of sauce it makes is wonderful! You can use it on top of mash and also on wide noodles which I plan to do tomorrow because it looks like we have quite a lot of leftover sauce.
