Leftovers remix and more

One thing I forgot to mention about last night's pizza was that we had quite a bit of the sauce and the tofu mixture left over. We also had some collards that didn't get used in a previous meal (more on that in a bit). So I chopped the collards and cooked them with onion and garlic and a little more of the seitan broth. I also added salt & pepper and Spike seasoning, then I mixed in a little tomato paste at the end. The collards turned out quite fabulous on their own like this, but I mixed them into some cooked penne along with the sauce and tofu, then spread everything into a baking dish and baked at 375° for 25 minutes. Yum yum!

And here's something from a few nights ago. I made the white bean soup with collards that I've mentioned before, and to go with the soup, the White Bean and Tempeh Sausage Patties from Vegan with a Vengeance. The patties were excellent but I have to admit that I think I like the mock sausage recipe that we made on Christmas Eve from Cooking with PETA just a little better. Though the VWAV recipe is certainly a little more original.

Working magic with leftovers alsways feels so satisfying, doesn't it? It's like giving your food a makeover.

Happy New Year!
