Seitan Riblets

I'm not a fan of the whole low-fat vegan thing, but this is an excellent recipe from Fat Free Vegan. I left out the liquid smoke because I don't have any, and it sounds kinda dangerous anyway. I don't have a grill so I used the baking method that she links to at the end of the recipe. The first time I made this I tried to make my own barbecue sauce but it tasted more like cocktail sauce without the liquid smoke, so this time I was lazy and just used some Trader Joe's barbecue sauce. The green beans were boiled and then stir-fried in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, and if you can't tell, that yellowish lump is mashed potatoes. It's an All-American meal in honor of our amazing new options for VP.

Blueberry Muffins

The muffins looked better 3 days ago when I made them. They're not as sweet as cupcakes but they're definitely not bland and they contain no prostate medication. I used this Vegetarian Times recipe plus a dash of cinnamon, half the amount of berries, and a combination of honey and sugar.

Rosemary Bread

I've made this bread about 5 times since I found the recipe a few weeks ago, and last night I finally made it when I wasn't hungry enough to eat the whole thing before getting a chance to take a picture. It's good dipped in balsamic vinegar and olive oil just like that fake ass Italian restaurant does it.
