Blueberries and george grill goods

One of these things is not like the other. Can you tell what is?

It is not the very happy cook posing lovingly with his tastey breakfast goods.

Matthew (aka banana scream bandit) presents VwaV lemon waffles with blueberry sauce topped with vanilla soy yogurt.

and

Dreena's Vive Le Vegan Blueberry Buns made on the special muffin top pan I purchased at a goodwill store for $1.99. How quickly can you say the word "GONE", well that's just about how fast these were gobbled up by a hungry family (minus one teen girl who is spending two weeks as a junior staffer at church camp).

George grills came out when I was already vegan, so tofu, onions and mushrooms were destined for it when I got my little one for Christmas severeal years ago. Here's evidence of it's destiny...
Tofu with BBQ sauce and a little salt....







Mushrooms and onions.....










Okay, pull out your calculator's it's time for a test,
hope you studied well...


Add these individual factors together and what do you get?



Hint:
Grilled tofu, onion and mushrooms BBQ sauce sandwich on organic roasted garlic sourdough bread (purchased).





Answer:
One well fed vegan family!

Have a "cool" weekend!

Freedom said...

Ohh, lots of tasty food here! You're going to be kicked out of the kitchen soon, the amount of cooking your kids are doing! :-)

Matthew does an excellent job with all his kitchen adventures. I love waffles and the blueberry sauce makes them even more appealing. The blueberry buns are lookin' pretty good too.
I've contemplated getting a little George grill, but didn't think I would really use it much. Do you find it's worthwhile? Your tofu does look really good.

Urban Vegan said...

It all looks fantastic, as always. That little grill intrigues me, esp. considering I live in a city apartment and rarely eat real grilled food.

I think you guys should pitch your own vegan TV reality show to the networks.

Vivacious Vegan said...

Muffin top pan! I love it. That sounds like a wonderful idea. Again, Dori, kudos to you for teaching your children how to cook. I wish all moms cared as much as you did - or specfically, my hubby's mom! Hubby has absolutely no interest in cooking what-so-ever. If I ask him to cook, he'll make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or pour us a bowl of cereal. At least he's willing to help clean up after I cook.

Dori said...

Carrie we do use the george grill, but not when we are all eating because I only have a small one, except for when we just want to "panini" our sandwich.

It is great for a fast meal for one, like the sandwich I pictured. I know they have larger "family" size grills out, but I don't think I'd do much with that because I have other gadgets that I like more when making family size meals.

Richard has mentioned that he wants a george grill. I wasn't sure it would work well with what we want to cook but THAT looks good. Maybe richard DOES have a point haha

Midwest Vegan said...

I love that you get your kids to cook (those blueberry buns look great)! My daughter's idea of cooking is reheating leftovers in the microwave.

Thanks for the kind words of support on my blog. I appreciate it.

Ferocious Killer Kat said...

tofu.. onions.. mushrooms.. sourdough.. all of em my favorites.. yummmm :-)

KleoPatra said...

Mmmmmmmm...

Dori, can you hear me humming "these are a few of my favorite things..." as i read about these morsels of deliciousness?

Love when you use that George grill. I remember a while back when i had a TV, seeing late-night informercials and remember his. I didn't like most of the stuff he cooked but i remember thinking how awesome it would be to make grilled/roasted veggies in one of those grills.

"Good grill, Dori!"

Lover yer son's look... He knows good food when he sees it... and when he makes it! You must be missing your daughter away at camp, no?

Hope your weekend's the best, Dori.

Cherie Anderson said...

That looks like one tasty sandwich. Have you made some of Buckwheat Pete's breads?

Megan the Vegan said...

That muffin top pan must have been created just after than Seifeld episode! Awesome!

Dori said...

Cherie, Yes I have made buckwheat pete's bread many times, both with rice and with buckwheat. I have also made the english muffins.

Kleo - we are missing Melissa. She has been gone 5 weeks away from home this summer. I've also noticed that she seems to be attracting some boy kind of attention. My baby?!

Megan - The muffin top pan is pretty nice... I must have missed that seinfeld show, I used to watch him alot.

Cherie Anderson said...

The reason I ask is because I made the buckwheat bread (no honey of course) and it said to shape it into a loaf, so I did that and put it on a cookie sheet. Then the bread flattened as it cooked. It tastes good but isn't a loaf shape. Can you use a loaf pan?

Dori said...

Cherie, I have used a loaf pan and I also have baked it on a regular oven sheet. I had to bake the loaf pan bread a little longer. Mine did not flatten out... what did you use in place of the honey? If you subbed granulated sugar it would make a slight change in texture and another liquid sweetener (like maple) may be thinner than honey and cause it to flatten.

I used to make this one quite a bit for a customer (I would have used honey), but then switched to my vegan version of a Bette Hagman recipe that they liked better. So it's been a little while.

Cherie Anderson said...

I used Suzanne's Specialities Just Like Honey. I would think that or agave would work. Oh, well.
