I met this young woman, around my age, at a party a few weeks ago and we kept talking on FB about getting together to make cupcakes, but my oven sucks and I don't even want to try making cupcakes in it. Everything is destroyed in that thing. So I invited her over for lunch this weekend and I want to impress with some vegan stuff (as far as I know, she's an omni).
What should I make?
I'm super excited about this. Making new friends as an adult is hard.

I'm a bit obsessed with seitan piccata from Vcon since trying it. If you had some seitan already made you'd just have to do the sauce and mash some potatoes. I don't know, I always get so confused about what to cook for people. My friend and I are getting tomorrow and I suggested General Tao's tofu from VegWeb.
I agree that soup sounds like a winner for lunch. I also find that pasta dishes go over really well with omnis. I like to make Isa's tofu ricotta and stuff giant shells or tube pasta with it and bake it with marinara over it. If you don't want to stuff stuff, you could make it layered into a baked ziti. I've fed both to large groups of omnis and it always goes over really well.
