 *Peasant's Salad* (serves 6)
 4 cups cubed whole-grain french bread
 1/2 small red onion, quartered and very thinly sliced
 1.5 cups small broccoli florets
 1 cup small cauliflower florets
 1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
 1/2 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
 1 cuke, peeled and cubed
 1 ripe plum tomato, cubed
 4 oz. mushrooms, thinly sliced
 4 oz. vegan feta cheese, crumbled
 6 T balsamic vinegar
 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
 1/4 cup minced fresh oregano, or 2 T dried
 1/2 t (or more) salt, or salt-free seasoning
 fresh cracked black pepper
         Combine ingredients in a large bowl.  Toss well, and allow to
 marinate in the fridge.  Serve in pitas, tossed atop salad greens, on
 crackers or crostini.  This recipe plays out well with various
 other/additional veggies (snow peas, lightly steamed carrots, zucchini,
 etc.), and is delicious with the peppers roasted beforehand.
 *Vegan Feta Cheese*
 1 lb. firm mori nu lite tofu, frozen, thawed, drained and cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch cubes
 2 cups water
 2.5 T nutritional yeast
 1/2 t salt, or salt-free seasoning
 1/4 t onion powder
 1/4 t paprika
 1/4 t garlic powder
 pinch of parsley, dill, thyme, marjoram and turmeric
 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
 1/4 cup weak chicken-flavoured broth
 1 T tahini
 2T fresh lemon juice
 2 t minced fresh dill, or 1 t dried
 1 t low-sodium tamari
 1/2 t salt, or salt-free seasoning
 1 t dried basil
 1 t dried oregano
 1/2 t garlic powder
         Place the first set of ingredients in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil.
 Reduce the heat and simmer over medium heat, uncovered, for 20 minutes,
 stirring occasionally.  Drain and place in a bowl.
         Whisk together the second set of ingredients until well blended.
 Pour over the tofu and toss gently.  Cover and chill several hours, stirring
 occasionally to ensure the tofu cubes are evenly coated by the marinade.
 Store in the fridge (it keeps for a week or more), and drain before using.
