suggestions please...

i get bored easily, and i get into ruts. this is a combo for a vegan disaster--something i don't want to happen. i usually do all my cooking on sundays, but lately i've gotten tired of slaving over the stove for 3-6 hours and want some fast cheap meals to fix. here' s my agenda for this sunday:

  • quickie tempeh salad-from PPK

  • macaroni hates cheese-from PPK

  • i have some firecracker tapenade and i thought that would go good with some stir fry veggies and some sort of fake meat i could score at one of btown's great asian markets

  • tofu scrambler with biscuits

  • some sort of cookies

vin's gonna make some pasta sauce with some beautiful plum tomatoes that i'm planning to harvest from our ghetto garden, so we're covered for this week. do any of you veg heads have suggestions for fast cheap menu items? thanks in advance for the help.

Bean Patties are great because you cane make them a couple of days in advance and then just pop them in the oven when you get home from work. And they don't take much time to prep at all.

For fast meals we usually do grilled tofu or tempeh with veg - and rotate the different kinds of stir fry sauce/spices we will use.

Hope those ideas help a wee bit.

Have you ever seen Vegan Express by Nava Atlas? It's an awesome cookbook and almost everything in there can be made fast, fast, fast! Everything is also good, good, good!

My fast meals are usually tofu scrambles.

Taco salad is my favorite quick dinner. Crushed chips, rice/quinoa/some kinda grain, beans, lettuce and whatever veggies, salsa and sour supreme oh yeah! Stirfry is pretty fast, too.
