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…

Vegan Carrot Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

Vegan Carrot Cookies Invade My Cookie Jar

Hold the phones! This is important news!  I have a new favorite vegan cookie recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.  Phew, I know you were on the edge of your seat.  Carrot Raisin Spice Chewies (page 37) with lemon glaze are now the official I Eat Trees cookie.  Well, I Eat Trees doesn’t…

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 Brunch Garden Herb Spread

November 12, 2010

I’m so good about finding a use for every last leftover carrot or misplaced potato.  Bread doesn’t last long enough around here to even worry about any going to waste, and you all know leftovers are my favorite lunches.  But when it comes to half a package of tofu, there’s a good chance I’m going…

Vegan Brunch Tofu Benny

Vegan Brunch Tofu Benny

You know I’m excited about this one!  Tofu Benny (page 67)from Vegan Brunch has been on my to-make list since before I even purchased the cookbook.  I don’t know exactly what kept me from making it sooner, perhaps it seemed as thought it would be time-consuming, but it may be because I really don’t make…

Vegan Deli Cold Sesame Noodles

November 10, 2010

I’m so glad many of you are planning to try the Tempeh Pecan Salad!  I really think you’ll enjoy it.  Even if tempeh isn’t your thing, and I’m trying to imagine I don’t love it because I do, I think that recipe would be a great one to make because it has such great flavor…

Vegan Gingerbread Cupcakes Take Over The World

November 10, 2010

I had big plans for Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World‘s Gingerbread Cupcakes (page 53).  I chopped a little extra crystallized ginger to decorate my Lemony Buttercream (page 96) topped cakes, but when I looked back over at the pile, I could have sworn it was getting smaller.   Knowing I must be crazy, I…

The Joy Of Vegan Fall Fruit Crisp

November 9, 2010

There’s nothing better than the warm, spicy scent of baking vegan cobbler or crisp on a cool autumn day.   Okay, there may be a few things better, but just work with me here.  This weekend, I warmed up my home with Fall Fruit Crisp (page 142) from The Joy of Vegan Baking.  The recipe suggests…

Vegan Deli Tempeh Pecan Salad

November 8, 2010
Vegan Deli Tempeh Pecan Salad

When I decided on Vegan Deli‘s Tempeh Pecan Salad (page 80) for a weekend lunch, I thought it would be tasty, but I can’t say I was expecting anything special.  The recipe only has 6 ingredients, and no deli salad could be better than Awesome Eggless Salad!  After a no-effort preparation and a couple hours…
