Poor college fag here. Plan to be making my own meals using lots of dried rice and legumes. Cheap as fuck (often can get a 'meal' of the two for like $0.12) and quite healthy. Now I need some ideas on sauces and additionals (meat/veggies) to diversify my meals. Yogurt is a good addition, because I can get about 2lbs greek or regular for $2.
I've completely winged a curry yogurt sauce that was pretty decent with rice and lentils, though the dish desperately needed something for texture.
Also what spices should I keep on hand, I've got garlic and onion powders (its a dorm room guys...), chili powder, paprika, mustard powder, thyme, basil, oregano, and dried chinese ginger (with almost necessary microplane).
itt cheap but healthy food

/fa/ here. After putting on more weight than I planned to in a month, I've decided to cut a lot of excess foods from my diet, and go minimum. I have a nutrition plan worked out, but one of the main ingredients I want to use is Tofu. Problem is, I have no goddam clue how to cook it. I'm not a master co/ck/sucker, but I'm proficient enough, but seeing as how my family is full of Italian meat eaters, I have no clue how to make something like this.
Does anybody have any good recipes? I know how to make Miso Soup, but thats just heating up the fucking thing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Why can't the fast food help just shut up and do their job? I don't need this bullshit after a rough week when I just want to have a late dinner in peace.

How does /ck/ deal with being vegan and finding a mate?
Fact is, guys generally like meat. Sure, vegan cuisine is interesting and challenging, and animal rights, factory farming, etc. but the fact is that I started being vegetarian because I was broke, not because I cared. To be honest, I still don't really care, but it's something to do and something to talk about; it occupies my time and it's generally positive and constructive.
I also don't really miss handling raw meat.
I did manage to find one guy who was occasionally vegetarian, but my boyfriends before all ate meat; Daniel, in particular, shared my carnivorous tendencies. Vegan guys are rare, though, vegetarians ones too, except if you're into neo hipsters and hippies, which I'm not.
So, how do you deal with being vegan and finding a partner? Carnivores and omnivores, do you find vegans and vegetarians attractive?
