I got a bit adventurous tonight. Amy wanted pizza, and I didn't want to order out, so, I got out Vegan With A Vengeance and made the pizza crust and the pizza sauce for Isa Pizza. The recipes make enough for two pizzas, so I decided to try something. One pizza I did up with veggies (onion, spinach, and tempeh cubes on both) and Daiya (both cheddar and mozzarella styles. The other pizza I made the same way, EXCEPT that instead of Daiya, I used the Cheesy Cashew Cream from the Nirvana Enchilada Casserole recipe in Isa Does It. Both pizzas were good, but I thought the second one was AMAZING. That cashew cream is just fantastic. AND I have four slices leftover for a lunch some time this week! It was Amy's idea to put spinach on the pizzas - we sautéed all the veggies in olive oil before putting them on the pizzas to bake. Needless to say, these pizzas were better than ANYTHING we could have ordered elsewhere.
Did I mention I am beginning to love cooking at home?

I tried the Everyday Pad Thai recipe from Isa Does It, and it is really good! Amazing - it tastes like restaurant food. It really does! It was really delicious! I will definitely make it again. One thing - Marcus does not care for tofu, so I could make it with seitan for him. I left out the cilantro ad the scallions, and added an onion, sliced really thinly. Also, I browned the tofu in peanut oil like ICM tells you to in Brooklyn Pad Thai in Vegan With A Vengeance. I think that will be the next Pad Thai recipe I try, the Brooklyn Pad Thai. I have a LOT of rice noodles left so definitely need to try that. It appears to be a bit more complex. And she does say to only cook half of the veggies/sauce/noodles/tofu at a time so the noodles don't become soggy. I tend to avoid things like that. But I also have some broccoli left, so ... yeah.
