A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Jalapeño Bread

February 9, 2010

I think this one is my new favorite vegan bread! It’s spicy, but not so much so that it’s unenjoyable, and so soft and light.  I made this as a compliment to a pinto bean and veggie stew, but I will definitely be making it up again often for a side to everything from soups…

Vegan Coconut Cookies

February 9, 2010

Okay, so these vegan cookies aren’t exactly (at all) healthy, but since my dad is in town visiting, I thought I’d make some tasty treats.  I found the Choose Your Own Option Cookies recipe on VegWeb.com.  I was actually looking for a coconut cookie recipe when I found it, so I chose to use coconut,…

Smoky Vegan Red Beans & Rice

February 3, 2010

Yesterday I wasn’t feeling well so I went to VegWeb early to look for a crock pot recipe so that dinner would just be ready to plate and eat when feeding time rolled around.  I found this recipe for Smoky Vegan Red Beans & Rice and I didn’t have everything, but I happened to have…

A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Sun Dried Tomato Herb Bread

February 3, 2010

I bought a package of organic sun dried tomatoes on my last trip to Whole Foods because they were in one of those end cap extras type displays that I always end up falling for even though I have no real ingredient plans for the item.  I remembered them yesterday when I was about to…

Good Ol’ Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

February 2, 2010

Chocolate chip cookies were always my job.  When there was going to be a family get-together, I made the chocolate chip cookies.  I’ve had that back-of-the-package recipe memorized since I was like 8.  So instead of letting that used brain space go to waste, I just made the recipe I already knew vegan.  With only…

Mom’s Biscuits And Sausage Gravy (But Vegan)

January 30, 2010

I grew up on biscuits and gravy.  It’s probably my mom’s most-made dish, even to this day, especially on special occasions or when there is company.  So whenever I make biscuits and sausage gravy for my family’s vegan breakfast (lunch or dinner), I use my mom’s recipe; I just vegafy it.  Talk about smelling amazing,…

Vegan Whole Wheat Breakfast Biscuits

January 30, 2010

Vegan whole wheat biscuits are probably one of my favorite foods, whether it’s with jam or gravy, or just plain without any fixings.  They’re really quick and easy to make and look so welcoming in a basket on the breakfast (or any meal) table.  And they also do a pretty good job of cleaning the…

Vegan “Chicken” Rotini With Mushroom Marinara

January 28, 2010

Okay, I think Gardein’s products have officially convinced me to reconsider my dislike of faux meat.  Tonight I used their Chick’n Marinara.  Oh my gosh!  Faux chicken stuffed with marina and vegan cheese and it was absolutely delicious.  So this post isn’t so much a recipe (because there isn’t any work to it) as me…

Toddler-Approved Vegan Veggie Macaroni & Cheese

January 27, 2010

Tonight, I decided to make vegan macaroni and cheese with some Daiya shreds that I needed to use up, and of course, I decided to go at it without any prior experience or recipe research because that’s just more fun! (If I was a chemist I’d be dangerous, but luckily its just food so the…

A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Mild Oat Bread

January 27, 2010

This light oat bread has a nice, mild flavor that makes it perfect for absolutely anything from sandwiches to a side with soups and is a favorite for the kid classic, peanut butter and jelly.  The best part about this vegan bread is that it is super simple and has ingredients that I always have…
