Now I'm on my own, vegan and poor...lets cook!

Dinner after the first days of class:

I baked some tofu and made this Curried Tofu Salad:
  • 1/2 cup soy mayonnaise
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 pound firm tofu cut into chunks and baked
  • 2 cups chopped carrots
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • raisins
  • chopped apple would be good too
  • also maybe some sliced almonds next time!

Then I had leftovers from last night. This idea is from PETAs College Cookbook. I just made quinoa, added black beans, cumin, a jar of salsa, salt, pepper and a tomato from the garden...easy!

Quick Quinoa Salad

2 cups cooked quinoa
can of black beans
sprinkle of cumin
jar of salsa

add it all together!

I bought bulk amaranth, dried fruit, and oats from the natural food store. Tomorrow is the farmer's market where I'm planning on only bringing $10 and trying to stretch it. I'm also planning on baking bread to roti or something this weekend.

This is so fantastic! I am totally following your journey!
Good luck and I can't wait to see more.
I'm becoming vegetarian and I'm trying to become more committed to my values through my spending, also. I'm a sophomore in college at Bridgewater College (VA). Are you able to eat in your school cafeteria, or do you find it hard?

I'm blogging about my journey too. =)

Oh, I love this. I recently quit being a vegetarian, and while I miss that lifestyle, it's been pretty hard to get back in it. Your blog is so cute!
