This meal was a combination of various things in the refrigerator. It consisted of leftover pasta and sauce, chopped vegan "soyage", and shredded brussels sprouts. I realize that photographing food and plating it nicely is a skill and this plate looks like a mess but this is exactly what my plate looked like when I ate it. I just wanted a no fuss meal.

I went to a small Thai restaurant in Media Pennsylvania called Noodi Thai Chef and had a great vegetarian dish called Mee Goreng. The dish was made with tofu, broccoli, carrots, baby corn and covered in a very tasty brown sauce. I would definitely order this dish again and recommend this restaurant. They have a great selection of vegetarian options and are aware of avoiding fish sauce, oyster sauce and eggs in their vegetarian and vegan dishes.

I love mustard greens and could probably eat an entire pot. I made this dish because I found some really great looking greens at the local market. I simply sautéed onion and added the washed and chopped mustard greens. Served with rice and beans this is a great combination. Plantain on the side really makes this a tasty dish.

I used a recipe for cupcakes from The New Best Recipe cookbook which is from the editors of one of my favorite magazines ( Cook's Illustrated). The recipe is for yellow cupcakes and uses sour cream making a very rich cake. I decided to frost with store bought chocolate frosting which happens to be vegan and decorate with sprinkles. I was very happy with the results and I make these cupcake all of the time.
