Obsessed With Roasted Vegetables

April 13, 2010

You’d think since it’s getting hotter outside, cranking my oven up to 400 and some degrees would be the last think on my mind.  I’ve never claimed to make sense.  Anyway, I’ve been completely obsessed with roasted veggies lately.  Broccoli, roots, green beans, if I can roast it I will.  Tonight, I sliced and roasted…

Vegan Asparagus Alfredo With Red Quinoa

April 11, 2010

Along with getting a nice amount of time in the sunshine today, I had lots of good food!  For lunch I revived one of my summertime favorites, the avocado tomato sandwich.  This delicious sandwich is simply a thick tomato slice and half an avocado on a toasted and vegan-buttered flat bread bun.  I also made…

Vegan Carrot Miso Soup And Roasted Broccoli

April 10, 2010

Yesterday afternoon I organized my refrigerator, checking for produce that needed to be used first, and planning to make a meal around those ingredients.  I pulled out a head of broccoli, a celery stalk,  and a few large carrots.  I also had a container of leftover brown rice and another of leftover lentils.  And so…

Vegan Lentil Collard Green Wraps

April 6, 2010

As I mentioned earlier, I had big plans to make vegan lettuce wraps tonight.  Last week I picked up giant collard green leaves and since I didn’t want them to go bad, I used them to wrap up our dinner goodies.  Most people steam their greens to create a wrap that is easier to work…

Vegan At Moe’s, Potatoes, And More

April 2, 2010

Yesterday, my best friend from college was in town for business so we made plans to grab some lunch before her flight out.  Since we’re both vegan, the main requirement for where to meet is always a vegan-friendly menu!  Since it’s a rather non-vegan-friendly dining area that we were meeting up in our options were…

Vegan Basil Citrus Portobello Steaks

March 31, 2010

While I was doing my Saturday shopping, I picked up a few mushrooms to make vegan portobello steaks.  I’ve loved these big, meaty mushrooms ever since I was a kid and they’re so hospitable to playing with a variety of flavors and seasonings in marinades and sauces.  This time I made a citrusy, tangy marinade…

Vegan Grilled Tempeh, Roasted Golden Beets, And Crispy Kale

March 30, 2010

Today was a beautiful day; I’m so happy to see the sunshine again!  After an afternoon outside with my toddler of tossing beanbags and drawing on the sidewalk, we came inside to plan dinner.  As you have probably noticed, I’ve been in a real cookbook mood lately.  I think joining the blogging community made me…

Vegan Yum Yum Red And White Cauliflower Bake

March 22, 2010

Tonight, I pulled out my copy of Vegan Yum Yum and went on a hunt for a recipe I had all of the ingredients to make.  Everything in this cookbook looks absolutely delicious, but I’ve had pantry bad luck with it; it seems every time I go to make something, I’m missing at least one…

A Saint Patrick’s Day Vegan Feast

March 17, 2010

I should warn you, if you’re anti-carbs you should probably stop reading this post now.  You’ll probably gain weight just from reading this (kidding, kidding)!  I’m not sure that there was really much Irish about this vegan feast other than it including potatoes, bread, and “meat”.  I meant to include some greens, but while I…

Vegan Rice Corn Chowder And Teriyaki Stir-Fry

March 16, 2010

Dinner tonight was absolutely delicious!  Okay, I bet I say delicious in every single post, but I don’t like to eat (or post about) anything that I don’t absolutely love!  I’ll get to the main event (dinner) in a minute, but first I’m going to post my lunch.  I had a really tasty and filling…
