Doctor, is that you?!

tofu stir fry for dinner...

is there any need to drain and press pre-marinated tofu? i can't remember the specific brand, but i picked up some thai peanut tofu this weekend at the store and really wanted to cook it tonight for a special occasion. also, any suggestions on what to throw in there with it? i was going to cook up some ramen noodles (minus the flavor packets of course) to serve with it. i have onions, green peppers, carrots, mushrooms, bean sprouts, and various canned veggies at my disposal....
thanks guys! yall are the BEST!

For those of you who want AMAZING mac and cheese...

2 cup vegan soymilk
4 oz. pimentos ( 1 jar)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
3 heaping tablespoon yeast flakes
1/4 teaspoon garlic (I use garlic powder)
2 tablespoon cornstarch ( level) or unbleached flour
1/4 cup raw cashews (Or you can use unsalted ones that come in a can)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 16 oz. bag of egg free macaroni noodles

Blend cashews and pimentos in soymilk (blender) until smooth. Add rest of ingredients. Cook in heavy sauce pan until thick stirring constantly. Medium heat. While preparing cheese sauce, cook 1 16 oz. bag of egg free macaroni noodles. Drain noodles and pour cheese sauce over noodles, mix well and serve.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE. The "cheese" tastes like a zesty velveeta. GENIUS.
You HAVE to try it.

(no subject)

so i have a crazy craving for stir fry, but dont really want tamari/soysauce/braggs on it, so i was THINKING how yummy it might be to mix a can of coconut milk and some peanut butter to make a peanut sauce

(with plenty of veggies, and rice, of course)

anybody ever see a recipe like that, or try something like that, or want to predict how it would taste?

Five Bean Salad

Just a note before I post the recipe. I rarely use measurements when I cook. Also, many of the the things I use to cook are interchangable, but this is kind of a basic version. Play around with it though. I also find that this is a nice recipe if you're like me, and have tons of beans lying around. I prefer fresh beans, but canned beans is what I had to get rid of.
