Fresh Noodle Salad with Avocado Dijon Dressing from The Blissful Chef

I love zucchini noodles so I'm always looking for new ways to dress and eat them. The avocado gave this salad dressing a lovely creaminess. I may cut down a touch on the dijon next time around. I had... read more >

Sloppy Jane's : page 159

This is a tasty, no-fuss meal that can be made all in one pot. It's the second vegan sloppy-joe type recipe that I've made in the last week and the sauce ingredients were very similar. The other one featured lentils and this one crumbled tofu which gave it a completely different texture. I enjoyed the flavours in both. The addition of a chopped pickle at the end was fun but my husband wasn't didn't love it as much as I did. (I love pickles!)

A definite make again for casual, comforting suppers.

Spaghetti and Tofu Balls : page 129

I was looking for a recipe that would appeal to my 5 year old daughter and this caught my eye. The tofu balls were very simple to make and I had everything in my fridge or pantry. I should have known that the bits of minced onion would be detected but apart from the onion bits, she requested that I make them again. I loved the flavour and was surprised at how tasty the balls were. I used my own tomato veggie sauce instead of the one specified in the recipe because it was already made. This is a good veggie version of spaghetti and meatballs that our whole family enjoyed.

Next time I will double the recipe because it makes a very small amount, suitable for only 2 people.
