Awesome Vegan Eggless Salad

May 13, 2010

Earlier on Twitter, I asked what I should do with the garbanzo beans I soaked overnight.  (You’d think I’m planning ahead when I randomly prep ingredients, but no.)  I got some great suggestions including Vegan Salt’s Chickpea Coconut Curry and Ordinary Vegetarian’s Garbanzo Ball And Wild Rice Soup.  While those look delicious and are definitely on…

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…

Grocery Shopping And Vegan Cheezy Mac

April 26, 2010

There are few things in life I enjoy as much as grocery shopping.  Yes, seriously!  Tonight we went to Whole Foods to do the weekly shopping.  I really only needed to pick up produce, but I did have a few must-trys in mind.  First, my store finally put out the Daiya, so I had to…

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 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 Steamed Veggie And Adzuki Bean Quinoa

February 18, 2010

I love making up big pots of things like this not only because they make awesome leftovers, but because they’re simple enough to add this or that and completely change the dish to something new the next day.  For example, last night I ate this as a simply and fresh vegan quinoa dish with just…

Vegan Red Bean And Rice Soft Tacos

February 16, 2010

The other night I made these vegan red bean and rice soft tacos and not only were they delicious, but fresh and colorful as well.  I often cook up a big pot of brown rice for the week so that it’s ready to go for dishes such as this.  I used the slow cooker to…

Amy’s Organic Vegan Teriyaki Burritos

February 9, 2010

Friday night we got to grocery shopping later than usual, so I stopped by the freezer section on the way out of the grocery store to look for something quick that we could all eat once we got home.  I hadn’t ever tried anything frozen from Amy’s Organic, but the teriyaki frozen burritos were vegan…

Vegan “Chicken” Rotini With Mushroom Marinara

January 28, 2010

Okay, I think Gardein’s products have officially convinced me to reconsider my dislike of faux meat.  Tonight I used their Chick’n Marinara.  Oh my gosh!  Faux chicken stuffed with marina and vegan cheese and it was absolutely delicious.  So this post isn’t so much a recipe (because there isn’t any work to it) as me…

Annie Chun’s Vegan Noodle Bowls

January 18, 2010

I know a lot of you are on the go and need to have a few convenience meals on hand just in case you’re running late for work or busy doing a million other things, and need a quick meal that’s one step and chow.  For days like that, I completely adore Annie Chun’s bowls. …
