Lovely Vegan Lunch For A Lovely Day

March 19, 2010

Today is another beautiful day and I wanted to celebrate with a fresh, colorful, vegan lunch.  We’ve been eating quite a bit of leftover lentil loaf, and while it’s delicious, I’ve been feeling more in the mood for simpler, lighter fresh meals with this week’s sunshine.  I’m actually laying in a sunny spot on the porch…

A Vegan With A Bread Machine: “Cheddar” Herb Bread

March 19, 2010

Since I have a big bag of Daiya cheddar shreds living in my freezer, I’ve been thinking of countless ways to use them.  I was curious how these shreds would work in a vegan bread, hoping it would give the loaf that “cheesy” flavor.  The result is a super delicious, moist bread.  It isn’t cheesy…

Classic Vegan Mashed Potatoes

March 18, 2010

I’ve always loved mashed potatoes.  In fact, it’s always been one of those things that people know about me; Keri loves mashed potatoes and iced tea.  Woah, I’ll try not to make myself sound too exciting here.  Anyway, my grandma has always made the best mashed potatoes, and she still does, but since I live…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Facing Confrontation

March 18, 2010

We all know that vegan isn’t the majority, but I continue to be surprised by the reactions I get when people find out I’m vegan.  I have to admit, without even discussing the ethics, I have found that generally people are very defensive about their food and offensive about others eating differently than them.  I’ve…

A Saint Patrick’s Day Vegan Feast

March 17, 2010

I should warn you, if you’re anti-carbs you should probably stop reading this post now.  You’ll probably gain weight just from reading this (kidding, kidding)!  I’m not sure that there was really much Irish about this vegan feast other than it including potatoes, bread, and “meat”.  I meant to include some greens, but while I…

Movies And Vegan Popcorn

March 17, 2010

Yesterday, I read a post about vegan popcorn drizzled with coconut butter on Everything Homemade, and even though she wasn’t a huge fan, popcorn thoughts drifted back into my head around movie time.  I know that homemade popcorn is best, but I only had organic microwave popcorn on hand (I’m going to have to remember…

Vegan Rice Corn Chowder And Teriyaki Stir-Fry

March 16, 2010

Dinner tonight was absolutely delicious!  Okay, I bet I say delicious in every single post, but I don’t like to eat (or post about) anything that I don’t absolutely love!  I’ll get to the main event (dinner) in a minute, but first I’m going to post my lunch.  I had a really tasty and filling…

Vegan Loaded Potatoes

March 15, 2010

Potatoes, that is! Tonight, we had loaded potatoes for dinner, and oh my goodness they were good.  Potatoes are fabulous as they are, but to turn a potato into a whole meal?  Now that’s a thing of beauty!  (Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic over this potato stuff, but yum.) First, I baked organic…

Hummus Burritos, Vegan Fried Rice, And More

March 15, 2010

I wish that I could say that it was an eventful weekend, but it really wasn’t.  The cold rain kept us inside most of the time (and I could really use some Vitamin D, Mr. Sunshine!).  On Friday we took a little trip to Trader Joe’s (I haven’t been there in awhile) to get our…

Lunchtime Remix: Vegan Taco Salad

March 12, 2010

Everyone already knows my love for lunchtime leftovers, but this “salad” was just too delicious not to post!  Yesterday night we devoured Fresh Tacos Supreme, with a little bit left over from each ingredients (mostly because we ran out of tortillas).  So today for lunch, I brought out all of the leftover goodness, as well…
