Appetite for Reduction for the Cookbook Challenge. Today was Broiled Blackened Tofu and Mac & Trees.
Also, I just love that cheese sauce. It takes all of 15 minutes to make all told, and it's really really good. And no added fat! That's what you want in a cheese sauce. And the best thing about vegan cheese sauces - easy clean-up. You can let a vegan cheese sauce cool and still be able to rinse out most of it. +1 for veganism.
The tofu, however, was not my favourite. The flavour was OK, but I didn't dig the texture. I think, once again, it was my nemesis thyme. I love/hate that bastard substance. I almost didn't put it in, but then I decided to go with the original recipe. I kinda wish I hadn't. I kept getting jabbed in the gums by it, and at one point, I had a hard time getting a piece out of my gum. It was uncomfortable, which is the exact opposite of how I want to feel when I eat. Also, I don't really have a broiler, so I had to just bake the tofu on high heat close to the element. It didn't blacken, though I think that was the least of its problems.
So, yeah, I'll make the hell out of the Mac & Trees, but if I try the tofu again, I'll leave out the thyme.
In other, non-food/veganism related news, we were approved for a mortgage! We're hoping to put in an offer on a flat soon. We're super excited. For me anyway, it's mostly because I get a cat after the majority of the work has been done on it. So keep your fingers crossed for us that everything goes smoothly and I'll be cuddling a kitteh soon!
