Vegan Red Quinoa Supreme

February 28, 2010

This weekend we went to stay at my mom’s and visit with my family.  My mom is always so accommodating to our vegan needs, and always willing to try my recipes (Love you Mom!).  When we go to visit for the weekend she’s often done a mini raid on the vegan section of the local…

Vegan Shoes From VeganChic.com

February 28, 2010

I happen to be a huge sucker for a discount code, so when the VeganChic.com newsletter in my inbox contained a discount code for an additional 20% off sale-priced vegan shoes, I went browsing.  I’m going to be needing cute summer sandals soon and even though it’s logical to do so, I have such a…

Vegan Pan-Fried Potato Coins

February 25, 2010

Nearly everyone loves the glorious potato, and there are a ton of ways to prepare them, most of which are fabulous.  I had a few potatoes in the pantry that really needed to be used, so tonight I made pan-fried potatoes with red pepper, onion, and garlic.  It’s nothing fancy, but definitely warm and delicious. …

Vegan Garlic-Butter Soba

February 24, 2010

This dish was exactly what I needed to revive me after a long day;  I’m not sure what it was, but I just wasn’t feeling as “Keri” this afternoon as I prefer, so I was really looking for some delicious comfort food.  To accompany my vegan pasta meal, I made a loaf of Rosemary Bread,…

Cheerful Vegan Broccoli Slaw

February 24, 2010

I feel like I want to be corny and say how making this vegan broccoli slaw salad is like my joyful celebration of food, but I’ll try to tone down my bubbliness so that I don’t scare you off (AHH, glee, it burns!!).  Broccoli slaw was something that was always at our family celebrations.  It’s…

Vegan Black Bean and Lemon Pepper Rice Tacos

February 23, 2010

I must have been in a salsa mood today, because despite having Spicy Tofu Potato Scramble for lunch, when dinnertime came around vegan tacos were sounding mighty tasty.  I like to make a big pot of brown rice and keep leftovers in the fridge so that I have fewer things to prepare for any given…

Vegan Spicy Tofu Potato Scramble

February 23, 2010

Okay, I know today is National Pancake Day, but since I’m doing the 30 Day Sugar Challenge, I thought vegan pancakes might be too tempting for me to heavily dose with sweeteners.  Instead, I made up a delicious scramble (pancakes are breakfast-y and scrambles are breakfast-y, so it’s close, right?!) for lunch.  It was so…

Vegan Snack Time: Almonds And Raisins

February 23, 2010

Almonds and raisins combined has to be one of my favorite vegan snacks.  Growing up, my grandma, who has always had a speedy metabolism, swore by this tasty snack for when she started to feel shaky before lunch or dinner.  She’s also been known to sprinkle them over her Sunday morning cereal for some added…

Artisana Organic Coconut Butter On Vegan Whole Wheat Biscuits

February 22, 2010

I really wanted to title this post “Chocolate-Covered Artisana Coconut Butter”, in honor of Chocolate-Covered Katie, one of my favorite vegan bloggers (and the reason I purchased this jar), but I thought everyone might be really mad at me when the post didn’t actually contain any chocolate.  Every time Katie posts pictures of one of…

The Vegan Elvis Smoothie

February 21, 2010

Well, minus the bread and deep frying.  I’m not sure how to deep fry a smoothie, but I don’t think I’ll be trying that anytime soon.  Anyway, I finally got a blender!  I’d really been holding out for a Vitamix, but I finally had to admit that a $500 blender wasn’t in my immediate future. …
