I wonder if you ever tried breaking the tofu into bite sized "nuggets" instead of slicing it? We often do it this way. It increases the surface area for better batter and sauce interaction, and looks more organic (and less like eating rubber erasers). We make butter tofu (like butter chicken....) using this technique. It makes it extra crispy and saucy!
I love it all! But fresh pita with zattar is hard to beat.
Gingersnaps - I get special requests every Christmas
We had friends over yesterday for lunch. Four people total. Our table for twelve was covered with dishes for make your own burritos. We just kept putting out more food! It would have made a great blog photo.

I'm still in mourning about Postum. My Mum had a heart condition that made her unable to have any caffeine. She always drank
Postum, and I drank it with her. Now I miss them both...

I had pb toast at 5:00 before going into surgery. Best middle of the work night snack!
You are doing great! My go-to creamy ingredients include butters (peanut of course, and almond, cashew, macadamia, sunflower seed...) as well as avocados, coconut cream and milk, and puréed silken tofu. I also make sauces (fake mayo like) with the tofu. Have you looked into some vegan / vegetarian cookbooks? I also carry a big purse with snacks - nuts, roasted soybeans, dried fruit etc... and eat them straight up as needed, and use them to doctor up restaurant salads needing a bit more substance. Enjoy!
Does ramen count? Or my favourite omelette- with feta and jarred roasted red peppers
not really a dessert but the Kaiser Pancake - I forget the name in German - a big pile of chopped up pancakes - best breakfast for dinner idea
I've been an all the time vegetarian for 20 years... But as an omnivorous child I liked vegetable lasagna
