My birthday lunch was from Tomato Head. Always delicious, this is my favorite:
The Vegan sandwich on wheat with potato chips, and a slice of key lime pie.
Asian noodles (from Earth Fare) with vegan soy nuggets, walnuts and spinach
from Tomato Head
One of my favorites. Tofu, pesto, spinach, shredded carrot, onion, sprouts
Such a lovely light, summery vegetarian pasta that I enjoy occasionally for lunch or dinner. This makes enough for 1-2 people.
Tomato Basil pasta
1 T evoo
1 clove of garlic
1 lg tomato
1-2 T basil
2 -3 T spinach
2-3 handfuls of bowties
couple artichoke hearts, quartered
a squeeze of lemon
Add whatever you like, this is pasta you can’t mess this up. To keep it simple, you really only need tomato, basil, garlic, olive oil, s + p and some type of pasta.
First, get the ingredients chopped up. Start the pasta boiling and warm the evoo in a sauce pot. Add the garlic & shallot to the evoo and saute on medium low heat for a few minutes. Then, add the tomatoes and cook several minutes on medium heat. Season with s + p, add the basil and spinach and cook a few more minutes. Add the artichokes (I love artichokes and try to sneak them in anywhere I can) and squeeze of lemon, along with the bowtie pasta. Stir together, if you like add parmesan or nutritional yeast.
I have been putting all the garden veggies to use, just too exhausted and busy to take some pretty photos of my dishes. All of the veggies below are from the garden, sweet!

A couple weeks ago, we made sushi and they turned out delicious! I took quite a few pics, but I have been slow about editing them. The things that I have a difficult time with is making the sushi rice (it usually comes out gummy) and cutting the rolls. So, I hope to keep practicing and improving! Enjoy the photos!
Now for the pics:
marinated teriyaki tofu + snap peas + scallion
the rolls below, were cute little sushi balls with veggies rolled onto rice:
yesterdays lunch on a sunny monday on a patio, perfect!
barley’s tofu sandwich with fries on the side
- I only ate half, their portion sizes are so large, that is 3 large stacks of tofu and the fries take up half the plate! I don’t understand why american portion sizes are so big. Ben & I usually share our entrees when we eat out. It’s no secret that portion sizes have been supersized & american-ized, especially in the last 20 years. Just because it’s on the plate, doesn’t mean you have to eat it all. Share with someone or take half home to eat later :)
