Vegan Coconut Curry in a Hurry

Vegan Coconut Curry in a Hurry

The last few times I’ve needed to get a meal on the table in a hurry, this has been the recipe I’ve made. I love that it’s pretty much a throw-it-all-in-the-pan-and-presto meal, but is still super delicious and fairly healthy. A big nod goes to Vegan Salt for introducing me to coconut curry. Hers was…

Vegan Sweet And Sour Peppers With Tender Bites

February 14, 2011

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope yours was as great as ours! The little man was so excited to put on his new Valentine’s Day shirt displaying a sweet puppy with a heart reading, “Sloppy Kisses 25¢”. After a breakfast of banana and peanut butter hemp seed toast, he went to play in the living room,…

Eat, Drink, And Be Vegan Burgers And Potato Squashers

November 13, 2010

I should start off by saying, these Spicoli Burgers (page 145) from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan are hands down the best vegan burgers I have ever made.  Don’t get me wrong, I adore Veganomicon‘s Black Bean Burgers, but these are just extraordinary!  The Spicoli Burgers are rice and hemp seed based burgers, with red…

Eat, Drink, And Be Vegan Jumble-aya

November 12, 2010

It’s simply been too long since I’ve cracked open my copy of Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.  I don’t know how that pretty spring green book got pushed to the bottom of the pile, but it certainly doesn’t belong there!  When I pulled it out this week, I was doing my weekly meal planning, looking…

Vegan Sweet Potato Quesadillas

If you’re looking for something other than the usual sandwich or salad to make for a meal in a hurry, break out your panini press or grill pan and give these quesadillas a try!  They aren’t your average quesadillas because rather than being held together by packaged vegan cheese, these are stuffed with whipped sweet…

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…

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…

Local Bounty Vegan Acorn Squash And Wild Rice Patties

October 20, 2010

Once again, Local Bounty demonstrates seasonal goodness with these autumn-worthy Acorn Squash And Wild Rice Patties (page 126). Acorn squash is a favorite because most people have tried it, or at least heard of it, and many people are comfortable grabbing it from the market without panicking over what to do with it.  It’s delicious…

Raw For Dessert One Bowl Brownies And Vegan Vittles Stroganoff

October 6, 2010

Don’t get me wrong, my mom could bake.  She worked in the same bakery I did, long before I worked there, and the holiday season meant it was time to make 25 different kinds of cookies at her house.  But when it came to dinners, we had that box with the smiling hand on it…

Vegan Pumpkin Harvest Rice

October 1, 2010

Yesterday morning, I flipped on the news to catch the weather.  I know I can just look it up online, but it makes me smile to “catch the weather” because it was something that seemed so grown up when I was a child.  My grandma would always say things like, “Oh shoot, I was hoping…
