I have a lot of cook­books. A LOT. I have man­aged to purge some over the past year, but I still own far more than I ever use. And hon­estly, I don’t usu­ally use cook­books very often. I love to read them, page through them, and fan­ta­size over them, but I am too fickle to actu­ally fol­low a recipe.

Lately, though, I’ve started dig­ging in and turn­ing some pages. One dish in par­tic­u­lar is becom­ing a sta­ple because it speaks to all of my senses in tan­dem: nom nom and nom.

This is the Greek Rice with Lemon Tofu from Dreena’s Vive Le Vegan! Now I’m not usu­ally a big rice per­son, but…


Dreena’s always good and reli­able for a sat­is­fy­ing meal and I felt like the luck­i­est per­son on the block.

Maybe I’ll bust out my books more often…

    I love that lemon tofu recipe. It’s so easy, but so yummy! I have a lot of cook­books too. I have been mak­ing an effort to use them more this past year because I felt like mine weren’t get­ting used enough either. Some­times they just get used for inspi­ra­tion and not an actual recipe.

    I’ve turned more omnis onto tofu with that recipe than I can count. I have one friend who makes it for all of her par­ties (I taught her how to make the deli­cious cold spread out of the left­overs!) served with matzo!

  3. I, too, have WAY too many cook­books. But I could never part with any of them. My mom col­lects non-vegan cook­books, and she has sev­eral thou­sand. And I have a feel­ing that I got that gene. :-)

    Clearly, I need to get my hands on this book, if only for that recipe! It sounds — and looks — delicious!

  5. Of course it was good! It’s Dreena. I think we all have too many cookbooks :)
