Your go-to recipes
Posted by WallysButton at 07/30/2013
So, I'm a vegan, but my husband is not. And I have a one-year-old and a full-time job, which means I'm almost always short on time. And since my husband is not vegan, I'm usually either cooking something just for me or cooking something that can be easily adapted for both of us...
So here's my question... what are your go-to meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner)?
I haven't yet completed a cookbook on vegan breakfast foods but for breakfast, you could make pancakes using soy milk instead of regular milk, fructose instead of sugar, and ground flax seeds in lieu of eggs. The batter should have the same thickness of a real pancake batter. Serve the pancakes with real maple syrup.
If you haven't tried vegg, this is an egg yolk simulator. The package includes a recipe for French toast - although it should be noted that this recipe is in bulk and will need to be cut down to produce a smaller amount.
Lunch and Dinner:
For the sake of convenience, I recommend the use of Augason Farms vegetarian taco meat, chicken, and beef. You can buy 2 lb. plus containers at Wal-Mart. Look for these products in the canning section that's adjacent to kitchen wares. Recipes are included on the labels. My favorite version is the sloppy joe made with the taco meat. You can also use the taco meat to produce spaghetti. Simply pair this product with your favorite vegan Marinara sauce. Add some vegan beef bouillon and Vegemite to the sauce to give that rich "beefy" flavor.
I would also wholeheartedly recommend the use of Butler Soy Curls. This is an unseasoned dried tofu product. You rehydrate it by combining 1 part of Butler Soy Curls with 3 parts of a flavorful vegan broth. Once this product is rehydrated, it can be used to make a stir fry, curry, or stew. Cool this product and pair it with vegan mayonnaise to make a chicken salad.
I have published 3 vegan cookbooks to date.
Volume 1: Beef
Volume 2: Salads, Dips, Appetizers, and Dips
Volume 3: Chicken
I anticipate publishing Volume 4: Pork, within the next week.
All of these e-books are available via Amazon.com as an e-book. If you don't have access to an Amazon e-book reader, you may download a free reader to your PC through Amazon.

grilled cheeses are another quick and easy lunch meal, especially now that daiya makes slices :)
Soup is easily made using vegan beef or chicken bouillon. Add in carrots, onions, and red or yellow miso. Once the soup is made, you can also add in chopped leafy greens and pasta or bean curd.
Lunch - For a quick lunch Amy's frozen entree's.
Chickpea Taco's is always my go to.
Drain a can of chickpea's, sauté, add sliced roasted red peppers (jarred), a handful of frozen corn, a fresh tomato diced and taco seasoning to taste. Cook until heated though.
Toast up some corn tortilla's and you have dinner.
