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…

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…

Tofu Scramble And Loving Cafe Vegan Restaurant

April 25, 2010

Admittedly, this weekend is a blur.  I mean, all weekends go by too fast, but woah.  Friday night we drove to visit my family, stopping first at my grandma’s to make dinner.  I made a tofu scramble loaded with sliced portabella mushrooms and fresh spinach.  You can’t go wrong with a tofu scramble! Saturday morning…

Gardein Vegan Rice Trios

April 20, 2010

A couple of nights ago, I mentioned that we tried the trio of Gardein vegan rice trios.  When I saw them sitting there on the refrigerated shelves with the glowing $1.99 sticker slapped on front, I knew it was the perfect opportunity for us to try them.  Now, if you’ve read my blabberings blog from the beginning,…

Vegan Yum Yum Pancakes, Moe’s, And No Impact Man

April 18, 2010

Yesterday morning we started off the day with Saturday perfection, vegan pancakes!  I made the “Weekend Pancakes Made Easy” recipe (page 32) from Vegan Yum Yum rather than my normal go-to memorized recipe.  They were a little thinner than I’m used to making, which I expected since it’s stated in the recipe it makes a…

Vegan Burgers And Baked Fries

April 8, 2010

After my strange day yesterday, I went with the simplicity of vegan burgers and fries for dinner.  I received a Fantastic Foods vegetarian/vegan burger mix in my Easter basket from Mom so I wanted to try them, and wow are they quick and easy to make!  After just adding boiling water, letting set, and forming…

Vegan Messy Steves

March 25, 2010

Okay, they’re sloppy joes, but I didn’t want to be unoriginal!  My mom noticed a sale on Fantastic Foods mixes at her local store and picked us up a few.  I’ve only tried their vegan taco filling, and it was really tasty, so I was excited to get to try some of the others.  Tonight,…

Vegan Rice And Mexican Chipotle “Sausage”

March 23, 2010

I really love the flavor of Field Roast’s vegan grain sausages, so I picked up the Mexican Chipotle since it’s the only one we hadn’t tried.  It warns on the package that it’s hot and spicy, but since we love spicy food I wasn’t too worried about it.  After putting on a pot of brown…

Veggie Dogs, Vegan Rice And Bean Burritos, And Starbucks Snacks

March 22, 2010

This weekend, we took another all-too-short trip to visit my family.  When we got in Friday night, we were getting hungry so we stopped and picked up some Lightlife Smart Dogs and buns.  I’ve actually never had a veggie dog before, so I was a little apprehensive, but with a little mustard and horseradish it…

Roasted Root Veggies With Vegan Grain Sausage

February 20, 2010

Today we paid a visit to Whole Foods.  I look forward to our little grocery trips more than anything because my son, almost 2, has so much fun pointing out the fruits and veggies he knows and deciding what he should call the ones for which he doesn’t have a word (Lemon was grouped into…
