Local Bounty Vegan Pasta With Collard Greens

October 19, 2010

It’s almost too simple to post… almost.  Most of us have made this dish.  The afternoon slipped away, you had to go pick the kids up from school unexpectedly or take the spare set of keys to your husband because he locked his in the car (that one is me), and by the time you…

Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker Lasagna

October 11, 2010

There are so many wonderful things about the slow cooker, and every year around this time, its appeal returns to me.  It’s perfect for thick, hearty stews and brothy soups.  But the best thing about the slow cooker?  Dinner is ready on time and I didn’t have to do a single thing, because I did…

Vegan Pasta And Not-Meat-Balls

September 28, 2010

I’ve used these Trader Joe’s vegan meatless balls once before, and again I dug them out of my freezer for a quick vegan pasta meal.  They aren’t my favorite meatless product, the flavor is very soy-ish, but I wasn’t about to let them go to waste either. I cooked whole wheat penne, and let the…

Road’s End Organics Vegan Mac & Chreese

September 22, 2010

You’re probably thinking, “Keri, what are you doing with a box of mac and chreese?  Homemade is so much better!”  And you’d be correct, but since I’ve started babysitting for another toddler during the day, I’m missing that extra hand I used to have for making lunches.  I try to keep things made in advance,…

Vegan Pasta With Truffled Roasted Fennel

Vegan Pasta With Truffled Roasted Fennel

This pasta has a lot of vegetables and color, but I think the real stars here are the white truffle oil, sliced fennel bulb, and black pepper.  Fennel bulb can have a strong flavor and liquorice scent, but when it’s roasted it becomes much milder and less overpowering.  My whole little family loves this pasta…

The 4 Ingredient Vegan Mediterranean Penne, Roasted Green Beans, And Bliss Balls

August 29, 2010

As you may have guessed, The 4 Ingredient Vegan is filled with vegan recipes that can be made with just four ingredients.  The only exceptions to the rule are water, salt, pepper, and oil or margarine, which don’t count towards the four ingredients, and the occasional optional or suggested ingredient.  These recipes sometimes utilize canned, premade,…

Vegan Twice-Baked Spaghetti, Cupcakes, Cocktail Weenies, And Spinakopizza

I took advantage of the weekend to make a few test recipes from Hearty Vegan, so since I can’t share recipes due to the binding contracts of cross-my-heart and pinky swear, let’s just call this an inspirational post.  You know, inspiring you to get in the kitchen.  Hey, at least I tried to put a…

Vegan Mini Polenta Pizzas, Udon, And Fresh Fig Bars

Vegan Mini Polenta Pizzas, Udon, And Fresh Fig Bars

I was planning on blogging about all of this last night after I put my little man to bed, but it’s all a blur.  I definitely don’t remember falling asleep, but next thing I knew I was waking up, grabbing for a clock.  Eleven o’clock?!  Dang it!  It was too late to gather enough brain…

Vegan Pasta, Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie, And No-Bake Cookies On The Cheap

Vegan Pasta, Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie, And No-Bake Cookies On The Cheap

As you may remember, I was very excited to get started when I purchased Vegan on the Cheap.  But after coming up short on ingredients a few times, it got pushed aside and spent a few weeks buried in my cookbook collection.  When I pulled it from the pile last night, I decided I was…

Speed Vegan Linguine With Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce And Balsamic Mushrooms

August 17, 2010

Tonight’s dinner was seriously out of this world amazing.  I once again cracked open Speed Vegan to make Linguine with Sun-dried Tomato Sauce.  To accompany the vegan pasta I decided on the Balsamic Mushrooms, partly because they sounded delicious and partly because I had mushrooms. The flavors of olive oil, garlic, and sun-dried tomatoes all…
