I ate tofu!

Vegan chili and cornbread.

Vegan chili and cornbread.

Let me explain:  So, I made the recipe that I posted yesterday, you know – chili and cornbread, and it was quite tasty and I cooked up some brown rice, as well.  I went to the regular grocery store, and it felt like the longest trip ever.  I had to search for so many new types of groceries, but I ended up with everything I needed.  Except one thing:  imitation egg whites.  Where do I get these??  So, rather then scrapping the cornbread all together, I substituted in ‘silky’ tofu.  It worked just fine!  The chili was spicier than I would have preferred, but the boyfriend enjoyed it.  I also got Tofuti ‘sour cream’ and it tasted just like the real stuff!  I’m pretty excited that my first ‘vegan‘ recipe was a success, and I have soooo much left over, bet you can’t guess what I’ll be eating for lunch….

On an important matter of business, it is to my understanding that Ms. Shmitty has already lost the bet!!!  I’ve just received word from JP that on her cross-country trip with her father she ‘had’ to resort to eating meat – sources say chicken, but this information has not yet been validated.  The terms clearly stated that there was to be NO bending of the rules, regardless of circumstances.  As a gesture of pure kindness I am willing to consider over-looking this instance of weakness if she is willing to allow 1 (one) cheat meal for JP and I, to be used at our discretion.  But she gets no more.

  1. There are tons of great egg substitutes. Silken tofu or ground flax seeds mixed with water are great for savory dishes and mashed banana works great on sweet things like muffins or pancakes.

    Good luck to you on your experiment. Let me know if you are looking for a certain recipe and I will try to help you out.
