Asian Fusion Vegan Hot Pot

Hey, look, I finally made it out of the Philippines!  The recipe for Hot Pot With Udon Noodles (page 82) can be found in Asian Fusion‘s Japanese section, the section I was supposed to make supposed to make sushi from before my great sushi-making curse struck once again.  According to the book, Japanese hot pots…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan MoFo

November 4, 2010

In light of Vegan Mofo, let’s do a foodie YTT!  I’ve put together a quick “survey”, so  leave your answers in the comments section below or on your own blog.  Or if you don’t have replies for all of them, just pick a few!  If you blog your answers, be sure to leave me a…

Vegan Vittles Pot Roast

November 3, 2010

Thought I would be burnt out on Vegan Vittles after that week of Vittles madness?  Never!  I made this Pot Roast (page 156) as a regular week-night family meal, but it was so amazing that I immediately decided it needed an upgrade to main dish for one of my family’s vegan holiday meals.  It isn’t…

Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream And A Vegan MoFo Survey

November 3, 2010

Good ol’ vegan vanilla ice cream.  I haven’t come across too many people who will turn down the sweet simplicity of vanilla.  When you get into specific flavors people get picky, but you can pretty much guarantee crowd approval when you have vanilla, or better yet, vanilla with a giant toppings buffet!  Yesterday, despite the…

I’ll admit it.  I was drawn in by the name.  Sure, it’s not quite my name, but people often misspell my name that way!  Another Filipino recipe from Asian Fusion, Kari-Kari (page 118) is a braised vegetable dish in peanut sauce.  I was originally planning to make sushi from the Japanese section, but if you…

Slow Cooker Vegan Bacon And Lentil Soup

Slow Cooker Vegan Bacon And Lentil Soup

If you have Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker, I definitely recommend adding “Bacon” Lentil Soup (page 73) to your to-make list.  Unfortunately, I’ve had two major flops from this cookbook recently, Cream of Potato Soup (page 61) and Butternut Squash Soup (page 72).  My potato soup turned into something closer to grainy, burnt mashed potatoes,…

Asian Fusion Filipino Hot And Sour Vegan Soup

November 1, 2010

I have to say, if I was excited about Vegan MoFo before, I’m really excited about it now.  I’ve read an entire day’s worth of amazing posts, some from beloved bloggers I haven’t seen post in quite some time, and after I finish writing this, I’m sure I’m off to read more! In the spirit…

Oh, The Trees I Ate: October 2010

November 1, 2010

Once again, it’s time to review my favorites from the month past.  If you’re wondering how I make my monthly picks, it’s really quite easy.  I simply go back to the month’s first post and start scrolling through until I come across something and think, “Oh, I wish I still had some of that!”  Sometimes…
