On the go meals.

After reading some detailed books that lay out the horrifying truths about food, I am making a slow but sure transition to vegan foods.

The only problem I can forsee is school lunches (I'm a highschool junior).
Its a nice cafeteria, they have a saladbar and always a bunch of fruits out.

But really, im not gonna eat a banana every day and call myself healthy.


So what are some tasty vegan lunches taht are easy to make and will last a day in a stuffy locker?

ideas for how to make this cake vegan

Okay so the following recipe (which was forwarded to me, I don't know where it was gotten) is one of those dreaded full of eggs, practically flourless cake recipes that are so unpossible to veganize. But the idea sounds so good. So any ideas on what you would do to make a similar cake? It would obviously not be the same veganized (although I've been vegan for well over a decade and never have had such a thing so I would have no clue anyway). So for once I don't care about verisimilitude; I just care about it being good.

My first thought was using silken tofu and cornstarch and see where that takes me. The second was based on this recipe and just make it with more flour and ener-g. Or maybe a combo of the two.

Suggestions?

Chocolate and Cherry Polenta Cake (the non-cruelty-free version)

Serves 8.

1/3 cup quick-cook polenta
7oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
5 eggs, separated
3/4 cup superfine sugar
1 cup ground almonds
5 tbsp all-purpose flour
finely grated rind of one orange
1 cup candied cherries, halved
confectioners' sugar (for dusting)

Peach cobbler recipes?

I have a friend who requested I make a peach pie or cobbler type dessert for a get-together next weekend. Does anyone have a bangin' vegan recipe? Feel free to give me a dough recipe too. I have a bread machine, so it's really easy to make my own dough.

Please make sure you tried the recipe and it's AWESOME. I want to make sure I blow her away with yumminess.. seeing as how she's non-vegan and I take it as a personal failing if I make non-vegans eat not-so-tasty or subpar vegan food!
