One pound whole wheat pasta
1/2 jar natural peanut butter (must be natural, otherwise it comes out not only un-vegan but kind of gross)
Juice of 4 limes
1/4 cup-ish of soy sauce
1/2 bottle of tabasco or sriracha to taste (must be either one of these or, as the creator of the recipe says, "your noodles will taste like ass")
4 inches grated ginger
Rice vinegar and veggie oil to thin as needed
Bunch of broccoli
1-2 blocks firm tofu
Cilantro garnish, if you feel like it
Put all sauce ingredients together and cook them over low heat until homogenized
Chop up tofu and toss in the sauce
Mix together and eat
Simple, right? And so tasty. It's Max's favorite food. And now, on to the baking. I wanted to do it all at once so that everything was simple and laid out for the week. On today's agenda: sandwich rolls, whole wheat pizza dough, and ginger chocolate chunk scones (I'm excluding the pizza dough from photos/recipes since I'm not actually making the pizza for a day or two and the recipe is pretty standard).
Whole Wheat Sandwich Rolls
The recipe for these comes from A Bread A Day. I changed a couple of things, like subbing raw sugar for both the refined sugar and the brown sugar. For the "brown sugar," I mixed the raw sugar with a little agave nectar and figured it would work just fine. Who says baking is a science? The rolls came out pretty well, not as puffy as I thought they would be, but otherwise just fine for my purposes.

Ginger Chocolate Chunk Scones
The recipe for these babies comes from The Post Punk Kitchen, an awesome source all around for vegan recipes. Plus, the recipe for these in particular is sort of hilariously written. They are SO good. I ate one with "butter" as my afternoon snack. I did use unsweetened chocolate, because I was under the impression that vegans don't eat refined sugar due to the refining process. As such, they aren't sweet, but they are super tasty.
