70s tofu was bomb, for real :)
Also loving the maple orange tempeh. It's my other favorite marinade. I would use water with maybe some coconut extract? for the ginger beer tofu because I didn't taste it.

Ok, I see now why everyone is raving about the 70's tofu. DUDE it is so good!

At first i was kind of meh about making it. I have a ton of ok baked tofu recipes.

This one is outstanding. Not sure if it is cutting it into strips, or the Apple Cider Vinegar or what, but it is really really really really good. So easy too.


I know! We can't figure out what it is either. We don't cut into strips because we prefer just the big slices. Now I want another batch.


I just put a batch to marinate in the fridge. I plan to grill it tomorrow instead of bake due to heat in my apartment, so I figure marinated overnight should help since I can't "bake in the flavor."

Got the book Friday. Loving the Strawberry Spinach Salad with Orange Poppy Seed Dressing. So far that's all I've made. I still have at least one more meal of it. Then I plan on the 70s Tofu, on a simple lots-o-veggie salad. What dressing should I put with it?

I prefer it with a balsamic dressing like the one in AFR. There is probably one in this book.

If you like mustard vinaigrettes, the mustard chia dressing is good, but it is very mustardy.

It pretty much goes with everything, so it's hard to go wrong.

Yeah, I made That 70's Tofu and used it on a simple salad with Newman's Own olive oil and vinegar, that worked!

I've really been cooking a lot from this cookbook lately. Everything has been wonderful so far and it's helping me find ways to use all my CSA veggies.

New salads I tried recently:
Grilled seitan with goji berries (needed to use napa cabbage)
Coconut samosa potato salad
Polish summer soba salad (needed to use beets)

I loved the couscous with snap peas more the second time I made it (needed to use radishes and snap peas).

I made the Polish summer soba salad this week as well. It's good - better than I expected. It is kind of hard to eat the long noodles with the chunky additions. They should make a short and chunky buckwheat noodle! Also, I should have used the English cucumber that it calls for, but I only had a couple of small regular ones. The thinner skin and fewer seeds of the English cuke would be better, for sure. I do like the dill with the beets and white beans. I'd leave out the walnuts next time, but I'm just not a huge walnut fan!

I made it, ate it for 3 days, and then went away for 5 days before coming back and eating the rest and I'm not dead.

I break my soba in half before cooking it in general 'cuz I don't like long noodles. (And I left the walnuts out too!) I got two crazy huge beets this week and am thinking of making it again.

How do you know you aren't dead? Maybe it is all just an evil genie in your head making you think that you aren't dead. (Sorry, Rene)

I'd say it's probably good for a week if it's sealed and refrigerated.

Thank you! I tossed it, because I really hate food poisoning. I will do micro-batches next time :)

Can you repurpose or freeze it somehow if you don't use it in the week? It sucks to throw away something with pricey ingredients

I break my soba too. I forgot to put in the walnuts and I had so many beets that I put in a lot extra.

I made the samosa salad today! Absolutely great, and it made a ton. I can't wait to have leftovers for dinner tomorrow.

Made the Marvelous Miso Dressing. I'm really into miso right now and this recipe didn't disappoint. Super quick too!

And now I'm really intrigued with trying the 70's tofu!

I finally got this book and I have to say, it has the highest proportion of "I HAVE TO MAKE THAT" recipes out of the cookbooks I own. I am anxiously awaiting my CSA so I can decide what to make first.

I know, I didn't bother with my usual sticky-note-the-pages-I-want-to-try method on this book; it'd be pointless if everything was marked. This week I'm trying the spinach, chickpea, and farro recipe, so i'll report back...

Did the Soba Salad, the one with the beets and dill last night.

I forked up and had Udon noodles instead of the soba. The noodles turned bright red and it was like murder spaghetti! But it was good. Want to try it with the Soba next time though, the udon was kind of weird with it.

The dill and the beats was really good. I thought it needed more protein though, so I had a Tofurky Kielbasa sausage on the side, which was perfect.

I made the za'atar couscous salad and was a little underwhelmed by it. Pretty sure my za'atar is just too old and should be replaced. I ended up using 3 times as much as the recipe called for plus more sprinkled on top to make it taste even mildly za'atary. It's not bad, just not what I was expecting. Pro tip though, if you have no snap peas but lots of zucchini because your CSA hates you and is trying to kill you it's that time of year, zucchini is fine here.

Made the soba salad again, this time with red beets instead of golden (CSA again) and it did turn into a sorta gorey looking episode in my lunch box.

Comically, I only had a little soba left so I thought I would be super smart and use up some old whole wheat spaghetti I had but only realized after cooking that it's fettucine. Not the best thing.
