Beans & Rice

Basmati rice, black beans simmered with a bit of jalapeno, salsa, avocado, a dollop of tofutti sour cream - yum!

Turkish Lentils & Chickpeas

This wonderful recipe from here: http://weeklyveganmenu.blogspot.com/2010/06/monday-dinner-turkish-lentils-and.html - left out the oil and the salt from both the salad and the soup (difficult to see the salad as garnish on top of soup) I've impressed myself once again.

Sunday = Homemade Pizza Dough

Used this recipe - http://americanfood.about.com/od/pizzainsideandout/r/nypd.htm (thanks Mark!) in the bread machine - I don't think I did it correctly - it's a recipe for a thin crust pizza, and I could only get it to turn out as a thick crust. My saga with dough continues. Tofu topping, tomatoes, jalapenos, green pepper, shittake mushrooms, and red onion. Put some basil leaves from garden on top. Totally edible, even if not meeting my perfectionist expectations :)

Feast of Salads!

Made coleslaw, 3 bean salad, mixed greens salad, and my current new absolute favorite - kale & chickpea mash! (oddly, it reminds me of oysters rockafeller)
