Eggplant, Vegan Muffins, And More

July 15, 2010

The past couple nights I’ve been blogging about giveaways rather than food, and there are some really tasty vegan meals just sitting on my memory card waiting to be shared.  Since I’m cooking for a guest this week, I’ve made some of my favorites to share.  Rather than blabber about each meal, I think I’ll…

TofuXpress And Vegan Seasoned Tofu

July 14, 2010

**Giveaway Closed** Congrats to Laura, who commented about her buffalo tofu cravings.  Expect an email from me looking for a shipping address! Keeping up with the birthday festivities, I have another awesome giveaway for you!  Now, I have no idea how you go about pressing tofu, but I always seem to make it complicated.  My…

Vegan Jerky Tasting

July 13, 2010

**Giveaway Closed** Congratulations to the randomly selected winners: Brian S., Kat, and Aletha!  Expect an email from me looking for a shipping address. Forget your wine and chocolate because today we had ourselves a good ol’ fashioned vegan jerky tastin’.  You think I’m fancy now, don’t you? A couple of weeks ago I was lamenting…

Vegan Cocoventures

July 13, 2010

As much as I love coconut, coconut water, coconut milk, coconut vegan ice cream, coconut… okay, you get it, I’d never actually had the pleasure of beating cracking one open myself.  And then I was inspired by Singer in the Kitchen‘s coconut-whacking good time and just had to buy one and give it a try.  First…

Happy Herbivore’s Zucchini Muffins And Mango Vegan Pizza

July 13, 2010

This weekend was so busy, but I did have some time to make a few good meals.  You know me- food is a priority!  Saturday morning I made Happy Herbivore’s newest recipe post, Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins.  They were nice and spicy, and super moist.  Yeah, I know, I hate that word too, but in…

Vegan Garlicky Carrot Zucchini Soba

July 9, 2010

Today I have an awesome, deceptively vegetable-packed vegan pasta recipe to share, but first I wanted to show off my leftover Sweet Potato Bean Salad wrap.  For lunch yesterday, I just tossed a heap of the cold leftovers in a soft flour tortilla with raw kale and it was amazing.  That sweet potato bean concoction…

Reusable Produce Bags

July 8, 2010

Every year, billions of plastic produce bags are tossed in the trash, ending up in our landfills.  I’ve always tried not to bag the produce if I didn’t have to, but it comes down to the cashier giving me the evil eye when I’m trying to chase down the 12 apples rolling around in the…

Vegan Adventures With Mom

July 7, 2010

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it to you guys, but I am terrified of airplanes.  No, not just flying. Airplanes.  In the sky.  I understand it’s not a rational fear- I think my bachelor’s degree in psychology got me that far- but it’s my fear all the same.  I could let a tank…

Vegan Sweet Potato Bean Salad

July 6, 2010

Tonight’s dinner was my attempt at recreating the meal Dreena Burton posted on her blog Sunday.  It looked so delicious, and I noticed I had everything on hand to make something similar, so I figured I’d give it a go.  Being out of black beans, I substituted pintos instead.  I cooked the beans, roasted the…

Vegan Enchiladas

July 5, 2010

Happy belated 4th of July- a day when my cats are so freaked out they run up walls and the dog is too terrified to eat or go out to pee.  Despite all that fun, some pretty delicious food is usually involved, and this year was no different.  My husband made fun of me for…
