Vegan Chickpea Cutletnomicon

May 14, 2010

I was reading my copy of Veganomicon (backwards at midnight) when I came across their suggestion for roasting a tnalpgge elohw whole eggplant.  Since an eggplant dish couldn’t get much simpler than that, I decided to give it a shot.  While I had the book out anyway, I thought I should use my leftover cooked…

Awesome Vegan Eggless Salad

May 13, 2010

Earlier on Twitter, I asked what I should do with the garbanzo beans I soaked overnight.  (You’d think I’m planning ahead when I randomly prep ingredients, but no.)  I got some great suggestions including Vegan Salt’s Chickpea Coconut Curry and Ordinary Vegetarian’s Garbanzo Ball And Wild Rice Soup.  While those look delicious and are definitely on…

Roasted Eggplant, Broccoli, And Mushroom Vegan Pizza

May 12, 2010

I firmly believe one can’t go wrong with homemade vegan pizza, but last night’s pie was especially delicious.  Do I always say that?   Anyway, I made a whole wheat crust and got to chopping veggies while letting the dough rise.  I popped the sliced eggplant and chopped broccoli in the oven for a few minutes…

Gardein Vegan Crispy Tenders And Mashed Cauliflower

May 11, 2010

Lunch today was a little remix of last night’s fajitas, which looked something more like bowl o’ nachos.  I topped off a few smashed tortilla chips with black beans and rice, smashed pintos, sautéed onions and peppers, and a little melted Daiya.  Sounds like a tasty mess, right?  I was originally going to make taco…

Fajitas And A Vegan Heap Of Dessert

May 10, 2010

Fajita night!  What’s better than tasty stuff piled in a whole wheat tortilla?  I don’t know either.  For dinner I cooked black beans and brown rice, smashed pinto beans, sautéed red peppers, green peppers, and onions.  I also thawed some Daiya cheddar shreds (I keep some frozen) and broke out the salsa. They were so…

Catching Up: Vegan Pasta, Vegan Sushi, Vegan Quinoa

May 9, 2010

After a long weekend, I’m back to share some tastiness.  My mom and her boyfriend came home from vacation Friday afternoon, so I spent a day catching up with them before making the drive home.  For the road I picked up another Starbucks frappuccino, this time with extra coffee.  Hey, it’s hard to resist now…

Bandwagon? Where?! Plus Vegan Cookies And Pizza

May 6, 2010

Oh, at Starbucks?  I’m there.  I don’t even like chilled coffee drinks, so why did I find myself at a Starbucks ordering a frappuccino?  Because I can!  You’ve most likely read about Starbucks changing their frappuccinos to allow for a soy base if requested, and I couldn’t pretend I wasn’t a little excited.  I ordered…

Potatoes, Pigs, And Portobellos

May 5, 2010

Since I missed posting last night, and I’m blaming a good book, let’s start with my favorite dish from yesterday- home fries!  I whipped up a skillet full of red potatoes, onion, and red pepper.  When they were finished, I topped them off with ketchup and a little mozzarella Daiya. Yum!  I’m trying not to…

Vegan Red Potato Stuffed Artichokes

May 1, 2010

Today has been a rather unstructured day, and we were a little off on our normal meal times.  So rather than wait for dinner, I decided to make vegan stuffed artichokes for linner (lunch +dinner?).  Since I haven’t made the bread yet this weekend, a bread stuffing was out.  I did, however, have a few…
