Vegan Crockpot Lentil Stew

February 8, 2011

I have to admit, it’s been bothering me lately how easy it is to incorrectly portray the vegan diet through blogging. I mean, most of us don’t share “food journal” style posts, and I know I’m always photographing the treats or new packaged, processed products I reviewed. While I love taking photos of baked goods…

Vegan Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Pecan Salad, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes

December 9, 2010

Christmas is creeping up quickly, so I wanted to share a few of the simplest recipes from my vegan Christmas menu.  When it comes to the cranberry sauce, many people love the orange cranberry flavor combination, and that’s what I made last year for the masses, but I much prefer the plain cranberry, sugar, water…

Vegan Yum Yum Stuffed Delicata Squash

November 23, 2010

When I made my Top 10 Vegan Cookbooks list, I realized I hadn’t broken out the Vegan Yum Yum in awhile.  I flipped through the book and planned several dishes for the week, but most of them were skipped in an effort to find effortless dishes to avoid standing in the kitchen for long while…

Saucy Vegan Maple Dijon and Ume Mustard Cream

November 15, 2010

Sauce can do a lot for a meal.  I love how you can take a completely ordinary weeknight meal and make it awesome with any number of easy sauces.  That’s where The Saucy Vegetarian comes in.  It’s an entire cook(less) book of sauces!  As far as I can tell, all sauces in this book are…

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…

Vegan Sweet Potato Quesadillas

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…

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…

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…

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…
