Brooklyn Pad Thai and Quiche....I think
This is the Brooklyn Pad Thai from Vegan With a Vengeance. Sorry the tofu looks kind of weird. We have established that my boyfriend likes the texture better of tofu that has been frozen (and then, of course, defrosted), but clearly I have not gotten the hang of this. I can't seem to do it without the tofu getting all crumbly. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Despite my crumbly tofu, this was good. Spicy, but not too spicy. I halved the recipe and it still made a ton (way more than the 2 servings that half of the recipe should have been).
This is the quiche recipe from Celine's blog, but with mushrooms added (and green onions instead of chives because apparently the cultural mecca that is Knoxville does not choose to recognize the existence of chives). Hers is much prettier to look at than mine. I've never had quiche before, so I really have no clue, but I think it should have firmed up more than it did. This wound up being really rich. Is cheesy quiche normally so rich? There's nothing wrong with rich food, it's just not my cup of tea. If I try to make a vegan quiche again, I will probably try it with tofu. It seems like it would be firmer that way. Oh well, new recipes are fun to try anyway!
