Part 3 of the Post-A-Thon... Cookies, Wontons, Viva Vegan, and Soup

Robek's now has not only vegan smoothies but vegan cookies, check em out! I couldn't contain myself and bought 2 flavors: Oatmeal and Pumpkin... yummmmmm :)
I also made some vegan cream cheese wontons since I had some wonton wrappers to use up... This was the first time I made these puppies without my deep fryer (It was gross so I just threw the damn thing out) and they turned out spectacular :)
Viva Vegan cooking was in the rotation again so I tried a new recipe, Arroz con Seitan, and this is definitely a new favorite from the book!
I also made a tried and true favorite from the book, Mojo Oven-Roasted Seitan and Cilantro-Lime Rice, perfection...
I also made some Tomato Quinoa Soup from my friends blog and thought it turned out alright, it was kind of bland, so I added more tomato flavor in the form of tomato paste... It definitely thickened up as leftovers and I thought it could use some spice as well... Definitely edible but nothing to get wet over...
VegWeb's Grilled Avocado Sammie's... I slather one side with vegan mayo and the other with vegan cream cheese :)
My Sweet & Spicy Fried Rice... Always a easy peasy meal when I need food fast!
My first attempt at Portobello Burgers turned out tasty... I marinated these in garlic salt, pepper, olive oil, Braggs, and balsamic vinegar and baked at 400F for 35ish minutes, flipping halfway... I wanted to try the recipe out of Vegan Table for these but the damn cookbook vanished!

Peace, Love, Vegan <3

I'm loving the post-a-thon! Your portobello burger looks perfect & you've reminded me that I need to make that Mojo Oven Roasted Seitan from Viva Vegan again soon, it's SO good.

The Tofutti Cream Cheese Filled Won-Tons are brilliant. How did you cook them?

The arroz con seitan is definitely a favorite of mine from Viva Vegan too. Tomorrow night I'm trying the Peruvian skewers for the first time. Can't wait!

the vegan cream cheese wontons were just vegan wonton wrappers stuffed with tofutti cream cheese made into a wonton shape and fried up in some oil... vegweb.com has a recipe for it that adds minced jalapenos... good addition :)

I love Robek's cookies, my favorite is the lemon poppy seed. I always get one when I stop by for a smoothie. It kind of kills the healthy smoothie, but it is soooo good!
