I have been wracking my brain trying to remember what the first vegan meal was I ever cooked was after deciding to eschew all animal products. I honestly can't remember. I'm sure it must have been something out of Vegan With a Vengeance since that is the first vegan cookbook I bought. It probably also had tofu. I thought it would be fun to hear about other people's virgin vegan cooking voyages. What did you make? Was it awesome? Horrible? Did you wonder what you were getting into?
