it's good food, people

This is for all you unbelievers :) Vegan and virtually fat-free food can be really good. I know, it surprised me too.

Ethiopian Berbere stew (lentil stew). It has an amazing deep flavor, with more than 12 different spices in it.
 [Recipe here]*
We ate it over brown rice.

Brocolli, green bean, and mushroom stir-fry... with marinated and baked tofu.
 [Recipe for tofu here]
I used low-sodium soy sauce, some orange juice, plenty of chopped ginger and garlic, and a tiny dash of sesame oil in the stir-fry. Good stuff.

Plum & peach cobbler... deeeeeeelicious. And the best thing about it? No unhealthy processed fats, oils, or dairy. It sure doesn't taste like it's virtually fat-free though. The crust has all kinds of yummy things in it - agave nectar, soy yogurt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla...
 [Recipe here]

Thomas tentatively took a little bite at first. Ten minutes later, the cobbler looked like this:

Nom nom nom.

My resident skeptic [Thomas] liked all of the above foods. The tofu was the only thing he wasn't sure about, just because of the texture. And he looooooooved that cobbler.

*Disclaimer - I didn't follow the recipes that I linked exactly... they just give you an idea. In case you care. :)
