This meal started with a squash that kept calling my name. Mostly because although they last a long was on it's way out. I marinated the tempeh with balsamic vinegar and italian spices and steamed it. I made a sweet but spicy roasted red pepper and tomato sauce. with portabello mushrooms, eggplant, & sun dried tomato. It turned out really well considering I just made the recipe up as I went along.

oh panini grill.....I love u so

I love this panini grill my parents got me. I have been using it almost daily. It grills tofu and other veggies to perfection. My newest fascination is tofu fries. It's just tofu cut super skinny then put on the grill for about 5 minutes, They really remind me of french fries but a lot healthier.

here are 2 sandwiches I have recently made

peppers, tofu, red onion, portabello mushrooms & tomato

Breakfast Sandwich---Grilled Tofu "cheese" slices and Tofurky slices
