Sunday cooking.....

For breakfast this morning, I made tofu scramble, roasted potatoes, and crispy tempeh strips.  It was delicious. 

For dinner this evening, we had moroccan tofu, with a garlicky couscous, and a moroccan stewed tomato/okra dish.  It was so tasty.  And there are leftovers.  Yippee!

Moroccan Spiced Baked Tofu

1lb firm tofu, pressed & cubed or sliced 1/2" thick
1/2c tamari
3T red wine vinegar
3T olive oil
3T molasses
1t garlic powder
2t onion powder
1t cayenne powder
1/4t turmeric
1t cinnamon
1t black pepper
1t coriander powder
1t cumin


 Place sliced or cubed tofu in a container with lid. Combine all the other ingredients. Mix well. Pour over tofu, making sure all the tofu is covered. Cover container with a lid and place in the fridge to marinate overnight. When ready to cook the tofu, preheat the oven to 350F. Place the tofu in a lightly oiled casserole dish. Put tofu in casserole dish in a single layer. Pour marinade on top. Bake uncovered for 45-50 minutes. Serve with couscous or quinoa, and side or greens or okra.  *Note:   you can also grill the tofu instead of baking it.


Earlier today, I also made carrot apple sauce cupcakes, or muffins.  The boys like to call them cupcakes.  They love them.  I also made seitan.  I will use it later this week for a Caesar chickUN salad.  That is a favorite of mine and Josh's.

Carrot Applesauce Breakfast Cupcakes

This recipe was inspired by our 4 year old. He came to me one morning and told me that he wanted to make carrot applesauce cupcakes for his little brother. They are a delicious treat for breakfast.

3/4c soymilk
1t apple cider vinegar
1 1/4c flour
1T arrowroot
1t baking soda
3/4t baking powder
1/2t salt
4T sugar, divided
1T ground flax seed
1c carrots, shredded
1/2c applesauce
1/2t vanilla extract
1/4c walnuts
1/4c dried cranberries
zest of one lemon, chopped fine

Preheat oven to 350F. In a cup combine the soymilk and apple cider vinegar, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, arrowroot, salt, 3 tablespoons sugar, and ground flax. Gently stir. Add the carrots, applesauce, vanilla, cranberries, walnuts, and soymilk mixture. Gently stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 12 cup muffin pan.

In a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon sugar and the lemon zest. Mix well. Sprinkle the lemon sugar on top of each cupcake. Bake in the oven 25-27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cupcake comes out clean.

Once done baking, let the cupcakes cool for 10 minutes on a baking rack, then remove from pan and continue to cool. Yield: 12 cupcakes

Well, this post is a quick one. I am off to enjoy what is left of the evening.  Tomorrow is the first day of October.  Halloween is right around the corner.  Yippee!
