I made Rigatoni with vegetable bolognese last night and it was a hit. Here is the link to the video for the recipe.

Tofu scramble topped with avocado and roasted chipotle white sweet potato home fries.

That sounds delicious, would love to know the recipe.

My lunch today is olive hummus with pita bread, carrots, and part of a yummy local pomelo.

Lunch was brown rice topped with sauteed onions/peppers/black beans, fresh tomato, and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Dandelion tea to drink.

I'm thinking my meals this weekend will consist of refried bean quesadillas with homemade refried beans, homemade veggie pizza, and maybe a frozen veggie lasagna that I made back in August with veggies from the garden and then froze for a lazy weekend during the winter.  I'm feeling lazy...:)

Red Beans and Rice for lunch. I usually put some bacon in it but didn't feel like it today. Still delicious!

Roasted garlic baked potato soup. Not vegan - contains butter and I usually top with a bit of sour cream and shredded cheese. But SO good. Perfect comfort food.

We're back to our normal breakfast of quasi-Bircher muesli. Grated apple, rolled oats, natural yoghurt, bit of crushed flax seed, splash of milk. Mix in a bowl and leave overnight in the fridge. Then add half a chopped banana per bowl in the morning. Yum! It's also the only way that we make ourselves reliably eat 2 serves of fruit per day. Doesn't happen otherwise.

Lunch was homemade tabbouleh followed by a piece of halva.

Having a smoothie right now with spinach, blueberries, oatflakes, banana and apples for breakfast. For lunch Iím having whole-wheat bread with baba ganoush and snack tomatoes.

Made a vegan stew yesterday with seitan, carrots, onions, mustard, dark beer and other good stuff. Served this with stewed pears (is this Dutch?). Was really into the stewing for some reason. ;) There is plenty left so will be eating this today for dinner as well, served with some baked potatoes from the oven. Gotta get those carbs in. :)

Planning to eat this week for dinner:
-   some steamed plantains with refried beans, tomatoes, avocado and rice
-   sauerkraut mash with potatoes, pineapple and raisins with homemade applesauce.
-   pasta with grilled vegetables, sundried tomatoes and olives
-   red thai curry soup with chickpeas, roasted red bell peppers and spinach, witch baked bread and mango chutney

Hannibal also went vegan. Heís only eating kidney beans and artichoke hearts now.

Mike Tyson actually went vegan right? I donít know if he still is though.

Homemade veggie pot pie w/ mushroom miso gravy.

Lately, I have been very curious about per-serving costs, so I added it up & it is only $1.14 per slice or $6.68 for the whole large pie (6 slices). In USD that is only $0.82/slice YAY!

Going to make a zucchini and mushroom loaf for dinner. We have a glut of zucchini from our garden at the moment.

Bean stews with rice (either tomato based/Italian style, or with coconut milk/spices). Lentil spaghetti bolognese.

(Almost) every stew, soup will do. Just heat it up and eat with some rice/noodles/bread/couscous/wraps. Couscous, noodles and wraps are easy to make on the spot because it doesnít take a lot of time. I personally donít like to freeze the pasta or noodles so I make those separate or make more the day before. Sometimes I make too much rice (sometimes on purpose) and freeze this (separately) to add to a stir-fry last minute. Red pasta sauces are also good or ratatouille.

Yes noodles, couscous etc. are easy but I'm at work without a stove. Yes I could bring noodles cooked the night before but I ride my bike to work often and food transpo isn't that easy due to space and weight. (I don't like plastic, store stuff in pyrex)

I was thinking more one container heat and eat, take a bunch in when I'm not riding the bike. For sure soups and stews are a big one, I'll comb the web for recipes. :)

Had these yesterday with the memorial day fixings.  You could argue that they taste like maple bacon, but I think they are good as their own thing, no need to label them as a 'substitute'.

Subbed Trader Joe's $2 tempeh for the ground beef and left out the cheese. It makes about 6 servings and we take the leftovers for work lunch. I estimate the cost at around $8.50, or roughly $1.40 per serving.
