Curry, Vegan Fried Okra, And A Quiz

June 8, 2010

I know fried okra isn’t exactly healthy, but it’s so good.  And easy to make vegan!  As a side dish to last night’s dinner, I used this recipe, halved it, and made vegan buttermilk by adding a little vinegar to soy milk and letting it sit for 10 minutes.  Oh, and I used far less…

Vegan Portobello Steak Wraps

May 27, 2010

It’s been a really long day and the night just got away from me.  I wanted to post though, because I know tomorrow will be total baking madness.  I needed to use the leftovers and last of the produce in the refrigerator so there would be room for all the wedding shower goodies on Saturday. …

Grilled Eggplant, Bean Salad, And Vegan Cashew Cream

May 26, 2010

Today was another colorful day of eating for me!  I’m fairly sure I woke up this morning looking forward to last night’s leftovers for lunch.  That sounds a little sad, but the black bean casserole was so good.  After a morning of walks and mini-adventures, I sat down to this plateful of goodness.  I gave…

Vegan Kebabs And Grilled Pineapple

May 24, 2010

It might only be the end of May, but it’s definitely time for summer food!  Last night I made corn on the cob and sliced up a gorgeous mini watermelon.  I didn’t even grab the camera for the rest of our meal, but when I sliced this pretty baby open I had to break it…

Steamed Veggies Alfredo And Vegan Key Lime Bars

May 19, 2010

If there are two things spring welcomes, it’s home renovations and weddings.  And we’ve been busy with a little bit of both.  My friend is getting married on June 19th and with her shower less than two weeks away, I’m stating to think I should get things “planned” outside of just sending invitations and waiting…

Vegan Chickpea Cutletnomicon

May 14, 2010

I was reading my copy of Veganomicon (backwards at midnight) when I came across their suggestion for roasting a tnalpgge elohw whole eggplant.  Since an eggplant dish couldn’t get much simpler than that, I decided to give it a shot.  While I had the book out anyway, I thought I should use my leftover cooked…

Potatoes, Pigs, And Portobellos

May 5, 2010

Since I missed posting last night, and I’m blaming a good book, let’s start with my favorite dish from yesterday- home fries!  I whipped up a skillet full of red potatoes, onion, and red pepper.  When they were finished, I topped them off with ketchup and a little mozzarella Daiya. Yum!  I’m trying not to…

Vegan Red Potato Stuffed Artichokes

May 1, 2010

Today has been a rather unstructured day, and we were a little off on our normal meal times.  So rather than wait for dinner, I decided to make vegan stuffed artichokes for linner (lunch +dinner?).  Since I haven’t made the bread yet this weekend, a bread stuffing was out.  I did, however, have a few…

Vegan Eggplant Parmesan And Green Beans Pumpkindine

April 28, 2010

Last night I mentioned I was going to an event that wasn’t vegan-friendly, so I made a nice vegan pasta before heading out.  I had some celeriac, or celery root, I had been wanting to try, so I decided to roast it along with a head of broccoli.  I poured my favorite marinara over cooked…

Vegan Garnet Soup

April 16, 2010

Friday lunches are most always some play with leftovers and the last of the week’s produce to make way for the new stuff.  Today, I had a little leftover red quinoa that I was sick of moving around the fridge; I tore up a little kale, steamed it, and tossed it on top of the…
