Today for dinner I whipped up something quick. I threw together a garden salad topped with my hubby's favorite dressing, Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette and some flax seeds (rich in Omega-3 fatty acids) and raw sunflower seeds (vitamin E), and made vegan grilled cheese sandwiches on my homemade whole wheat bread. It was pretty good! The test is always my meat-eating hubby. He thought it needed a little salt...as usual...but said it was definitely something to make again. The kids and I eat veg and sometimes I occasionally "cheat" with some seafood when we go out to eat. At home, I try to cook as vegan as possible. Anyways, the vegan grilled cheese was a recipe from The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook by Jo Stepaniak. There's some pretty tasty stuff in there! I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested! I tell people all the time that you'd be surprised how many delicious things you can make with out the help of animal products.
Something to add...have you ever tried to use tahini? It is a pain because the stuff comes hard with the oil on top. How many t-shirts have I ruined trying to stir it?!? Oil everywhere! Yesterday, I discovered something...and people probably already have thought of it...but if you don't know about this, take your whole container of tahini and through it in the food processor. Process it and pour it back in to the container it came in. It comes perfect! No stirring required!
