Dinner - spicy grilled tofu and mushrooms with cherry tomatoes, edamame, spinach, a side serving of broccoli and a peanut/orange sauce.
For the tofu I pressed a third of a block, chopped it in to 5 slices the put some cornstarch, cumin, ground coriander, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper on a plate, mixed it up and rolled each piece of tofu in the mix. Then I just sprayed the griddle pan a few times with a lil’ bit of oil and grilled away!
The dressing is simply a tsp of peanut butter, pinch of salt and some orange juice (which I microwaved for 20 seconds - they heat helps everything emulsify) and bam! Awesome dressing. :D

Low-fat intensely chocolatey bundt cake with a dusting of icing sugar. ^_^ (vegan!)

This recipe comes from Veganomicon, potentially my favourite vegan book of all time after Ms. Cupcake’s book. I’ve never made a bundt cake or tried using coffee in a chocolate cake before but it turned out pretty great! You can’t taste the coffee which is great, it just makes it darker in colour and richer without the need for soya butter etc.

I think next time I might drizzle this with a little glacé icing and top with toasted crushed hazelnuts and fresh raspberries, yum!

Peanut butter/oat/cinnamon/almond cookies from the “Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar” cookbook.
The raw mix and these straight out of the oven were amazing, but only a day later they were very dry and almost “healthy cookie tasting” (you know what I mean) which is a shame. You’re meant to use salted peanuts in place of the almonds so that might have made a difference? Eh, all I’d say is make 1/2 the batch and serve them straight away! ^_^

Veggie bao - organic marinated tofu cake and steamed bun served with choi sum, hoisin sauce, crush peanuts, coriander + dikkon radish.
I had this today for lunch in Bristol and it was lovely! The cafe was very small but cute, service was fast and it was only £6 for two of these which is amazing. I’m surprised there wasn’t a queue out the door! Plus you can get takeaway which I’ll definitely be doing when I’m feeling like a lazy student rather than spending a lot of money on a greasy, horrible takeaway. :P
Oh, and the cafe is called BAOWOW. (coolest name ever, I know)
