More ED&BV

Our copy of Eat, Drink & Be Vegan had to go back to the library but we managed to try a couple more recipes before the due date. The Lentil "Sniffle" Soup was excellent and came together quickly thanks to the red lentils. Plus I'm always open to any recipe that uses fresh rosemary since the rosemary bush outside our front door is now about 6 feet wide and 3 feet high. We made bread sticks with store-bought pizza dough and started with a big salad and that was all we needed.

We also made the Cashew Ginger Tofu. Dreena's books all have some inventive baked tofu recipes and this one was particularly yummy. For this one we experimented with the tofu lollipop method (shamelessly taken from here). Darlene's sister is organizing a baby shower for us in a couple weeks but it will be at our house and we'll be cooking the food so we thought something like this would be good party food. Though it was good for dinner too, especially with steamed kale on the side.

This is the first I've seen someone use the Lentil Sniffle Soup recipe. I want to try it now, it looks so good!

Nothing beats fresh rosemary. Or herbs, for that matter.

I thought the Cashew Ginger Tofu sauce was amazingly fantastic. It looks great on lollipops.

Okay, this is the first time I've ever said this on your blog, but those look *terrible*. (The lollipops, that is.)

i love how rosemary gets so big and lovely in a yard.
those tofu lollipops look too cute and perfect for a baby shower.
