Black Pepper Tofu Macaroni Salad + Spinach Waldorf Salad + Strawberry and Cream Quinoa Porridge + more

Sorry for the delay in this week’s round-up. Life has gotten rather busy! Since I last posted a round-up, I tried four recipes from our August VegCookbook Betty Goes Vegan:

Black Pepper Tofu Macaroni Salad

Very yummy, and it made lots of leftovers, which is a big plus in my book. I’m not a big fan of vegan cheese, so I didn’t add the suggested 1/2 cup of Daiya shredded cheddar. The only drawback is that this takes a long time to make, almost three hours, so it isn’t a good weeknight recipe.

Strawberry and Cream Quinoa Porridge

Comforting, sweet and delicious.

Sloppy Joels

These were surprisingly good. I saw surprising because the concept of a Sloppy Joe has never appealed to me, but I liked these. I only used 1/4 cup of ketchup, rather than a cup, ’cause I had less at home than I thought, but it was still tasty.

Spinach Waldorf Salad

I really liked this recipe, and will definitely make it again. The biggest challenge was finding a 1/2 cup of vegan plain yogurt.  I tried five store (3 local grocery stores, Safeway and Trader Joe’s).  None of them carried plain vegan yogurt. I finally found some at a natural food co-op.
