Jamie returned from Dragoncon on Monday night but I was working. I made her a "welcome home" meal Tue night. We had breaded tofu, mashed potatoes, salad, and I tried my hand at ranch dressing. The dressing was a little sweet so I will work on it a bit more until I get the recipe down.
Also, as an update, I think I have the recipe down for my chickpea chicken salad. I will post it soon.
Creamy Mashed Potatoes
4 small red potatoes
3 cups of water
1/3 cup of soymilk
1/3 cup of nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons of vegan margarine
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 teaspoon of dill weed
1 teaspoon of paprika
Boil the potatoes until soften. Drain water off and put potatoes back into sauce pan. Add the margarine and mash with either a fork or masher. Once the margarine has melted, add the nutritional yeast and soymilk. Mash and mix until the potatoes are creamy and soft. Add the rest of the spices and mix well. Serve hot.
Tonight it is 3 hours worth of top chef!
If anyone has an interest, I may post the recipe for the tofu soon. Let me know.
