Tofu Parmigiana
I'm new to tofu and this, as written, was a hit. I took the tips to get the tofu (extra firm) as dry as possible. I sliced the loaf into three pieces (bigger than 1/4") and placed them on two paper towels on the counter. I topped them with two more paper towels, then a large dinner plate, and plop...the coffee maker went on top of it all. I came back about three hours later and they were perfect, and the towels were drenched. I also dipped the tofu slices into a beaten egg, then into the crumb mixture. I pan fried them on a very hot skillet (olive oil) and got them quite dark & crispy. The sauce was so simple. Be sure to use fresh garlic clove, but the dried oregano is fine (I was generous with it). Allow it to simmer for a good while to thicken it, too. We had it with veggie pasta tossed in pesto, and a baby spinach, strawberry and toasted almond salad. Superb dinner!

Vegan Red Lentil Soup
Yep! 5 star all the way. But WOW it's THICK! Like paste, so be SURE to add more liquid...the reviewers that talk about the thickness have added more coconut milk or veggie broth or water. And it takes longer than 30 minutes (low simmer) to get those lentils for break. I pre-cooked the butternut squash, so added it after the lentils had been in for ~30 minutes. Zowie this is so good!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
Watch your salt on this!! Tomato juice, butter, and if you use them: canned tomatoes (they are WONDERFUL!) can add up to so much sodium, it'll preserve your insides. My fresh basil wasn't so fresh, as I discovered, so I added lots of dried. It's a VERY good recipe! I even added a smidge of Dijon mustard (I do that with ALL my soups and - this included - took it over the top. Next time, it's low sodium juices and unsalted butter, then salt as needed, but all else remains the same. YUM!
