Fried "Chicken" and Pasta...

I made two recipes the other day from other blogs.
First is the Chicken Fried Seitan from The Voracious Vegan!
Let's just say that she nailed it on this recipe. My husband liked it as did my four year old son.
I will definitely make this recipe again, except my seitan came out a little doughy. I like my seitan to be a little tougher. It could be my technique though. I think that this will be good for a smothered "chicken" recipe that I will make soon. This one is a keeper for sure!
Along with that I made Hurry Up Alfredo from VeganYumYum.
I am not too sure about this one. I followed the recipe to the letter but my sauce did not come out looking anything like the sauce on the picture. The taste is ok. The family liked it. I did too but I wanted a more authentic looking and tasting alfredo. Others had the same issue as well, it seems. I will probably cut back on the tamari/soy sauce and see how that works out because I definitely want to give this recipe a chance.

*sigh* why do I keep attempting to work with tofu?

Ever since I became a veg*n, I have tried on numerous occasions to work with tofu. It is fine if I am blending it with something to make a sauce. But on its own to bake or fry, ummmm - no. It NEVER works out.

I was supposed to make a mock chicken recipe with it but there is no way this will work.
I froze the extra firm tofu, defrosted it and pressed the water out of it and got this :(
Oh well, maybe some other time. Well, at least my steamed sausages are edible!

Welcome to Veg*n Food and More...

I love to cook. I remember helping my mother cook when I was a child. I did not like it too much back then and the meals definitely were not vegetarian. In my blog, I will cook some of my favorite recipes from other sources as well as some of my own. You may also see a lot of pizza posts here in this blog. I am on am mission to develop different veggie pizzas as well as vegan pizzas. There will also be product reviews here as well.
