Vegan Salt And Pepper Pumpkin Seeds

September 24, 2010

Since it’s officially fall, I’m now allowed to post all things pumpkin without further explanation!  When I sawed open my pumpkin for Lick It’s Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream, I also cleaned the seeds and roasted them for one of my favorite fall snacks- pumpkin seeds!  Like popcorn, it can be a lot of fun to play with…

Chicago Diner Vegan Seitan Pot Pie

September 21, 2010

I couldn’t even tell you the last time I ate pot pie.  It was definitely before college.  It isn’t that I don’t like pot pie, I love it, but making it myself seemed too time-consuming, and those freezer section pot pies are just caloric death traps.  When you check the back of the box you’re…

Chicago Diner Vegan Cream Of Broccoli Soup And Cornbread Muffins

When I ate at The Chicago Diner for the first time, I was so excited about their vegan food I wanted all things The Chicago Diner: the t-shirts, the packaged treats, the cookbook.  I didn’t end up getting any of those things because it was our first stop in the city and we thought we’d…

Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream

September 19, 2010

The first official day of fall may be a few days away, but I would hate to leave you unprepared!  You may have noticed I’m a bit of an autumn enthusiast, and growing up, one of my many favorite things about the season was the local ice cream shop’s homemade pumpkin ice cream.  My mom…

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Quinoa Casserole

September 17, 2010

A casserole can be a beautiful thing.  You take what’s in the refrigerator or pantry, get a little creative, and end up with a full meal baked into a single dish.  Plus, casserole leftovers are always the best!  Once all those flavors get a chance to combine, it’s perfection.  This vegan casserole has a little of…

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…

BBQ Eggplant Sandwiches And ABC Vegan Cookies

September 15, 2010

My panini press has been getting a lot of lovin’ lately, like this barbecue grilled eggplant sandwich with grilled onions and spinach on whole wheat vegan bread.  I guess that means my cast iron grill pan is getting a lot of love as well!  I served our barbecue eggplant sandwiches with steamed acorn squash, one…

Vegan Chipotle Yams And Zucchini With Quinoa

I created this spicy vegan recipe over the weekend and we absolutely love it!  It’s the perfect “between seasons” dish while we’re in limbo between summer and fall.  The colors of the vegetables are just so vibrant against the quinoa, and we all know how much I love a pretty meal!  The adobo sauce can bring…

Vegan Utopia Sticky Toffee Pudding

We got home too late tonight to prepare much of a dinner.  I just tossed together whole wheat rotini, marinara, and cooked navy beans, all leftover ingredients from previous meals, and topped off with homemade vegan parmesan . So all I really have for you tonight is another vegan dessert recipe from Sweet Utopia, but…
