Weekend cooking

No vegan household should be without Veganomicon.  Kathleen found a couple of perfect avocados and a salad mix of arugula and spinach, so I made Pasta della California, one of our favorites from Veganomicon.  Quick and easy - just be sure not to overcook and be diligent about mise en place, otherwise it can get soggy and not look quite as 'fresh'.

A couple of nights ago I put together what is a very typical dinner for us:  some red potatoes quickly steamed in the pressure cooker (to save time and retain more nutrients), with a very quick three-bean salad with loads of fresh herbs including parsley, basil, garlic chives, marjoram and oregano. And where do you get your protein?  I almost forgot - some marinated extra-firm tofu, baked in the oven on my Pampered Chef pizza stone. Oh and some steamed broccoli. Good for you.
