Despite the lack of photos, I have been eating.

See.

That mushroom I mentioned last post was finally put to use, and maybe even benefited from the extra marinade time. Lacking a BBQ I baked it in the oven for 25 (ish) minutes at 375, and it was just as juicy and tasty. The marinade was a take off of Joanna‘s (Yellow Rose Recipes), take off as in this is what I wanted to make but I’d forgotten to buy the ingredients so I wound up using rice wine, red wine vinegar, and presumably a few other things I can no longer recall. Very tasty.

To serve I sliced the mushroom over top of Tofu Basil Ravioli in a sweet marinara sauce with vegan soy cheese melted over top. The Ravioli was not home made, although I would recommend you make it yourself as although easy, tasty and filling. The soy boy version is too bland for my taste. The ravioli would be better filled with a vegan Ricotta recipe like the one in Vegan with a vengeance or even if the tofu had been marinated at all. But with a tasty sauce and mushroom pairing the blandness can be over come into something great for a working lunch.

Campus Triumphs

I know it’s been a while, so here’s a little update on my culinary world. I have been busy in the kitchen, teaching vegan cooking classes and cooking for groups of people all week (ok so sometimes it is just Katie and I but still).

Sadly, that is not what I am here to report. I am here to talk about the magic of cheap, vegan, campus food.

After my biology exam, I was a hungry and on my way to the Dunn building. Gracefully I Bi-passed the Dawg-Father and his 3$ veggie dogs and went into the grad house. It turns out Charleton offers plates of Veggies and Tofu for 3$, the same as the veggie burger. They also had Eggplant Xio-something, rice, rolls, etc. After my dish of spicy tofu veggie delight, I cut through the Killiam library and bought a Strawberry soy milk 1.50$.

All together a fairly decent and extremely cheap meal, all on the way to where I was headed.
