Vegan Corned Seitan With Cabbage And Chili With Dumplings On The Cheap

November 6, 2010

The past few weeks, I’ve been sharing a few budget-friendly meals from Vegan on the Cheap I’ve relied on to soften the grocery bill shock, so I figured why not keep it up?  This week I made two from the cookbook’s slow cooker section, the perfect type of recipe for morning people.  If you’re one…

Vegan Fried Rice

November 6, 2010

Most of us have an “end of the grocery week” day.  It’s the day when you’re jamming every single piece of leftover produce in the fridge into a soup, a pasta, anything to salvage it from the dreaded gone-to-waste-bin.  I hate seeing even half an onion or head of cabbage go unused, so I’ve found…

Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

Perhaps I enjoyed the vibrancy of Asian Fusion‘s dishes or perhaps I’m just trying to compensate for these solid grey clouds that have taken residence over our home, but even when moving to another cookbook, I chose colorful.  It certainly isn’t primavera here, but I couldn’t help but be drawn to the simplicity of Quinoa…

The Joy Of Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake

The Joy Of Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake

It’s time to add another photo to The I Eat Trees Vegan Pumpkin Recipes Collection!  Around the blog world, I’ve seen quite a few bloggers mention in nostalgic fashion that The Joy of Vegan Baking was either their very first vegan cookbook or their first vegan dessert cookbook.  It was mine!  Most of the recipes…

Asian Fusion Vegan Hot Pot

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…

Asian Fusion Vegan Kari-Kari

November 2, 2010

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,…
