Grilled Vegan Portobello Steaks

Grilled Vegan Portobello Steaks

Grilling season is upon us! To be honest, we don’t even own a grill, but I love using my cast iron grill pan with summer vegetables to get similar texture, flavor, and markings. Of all of the gorgeous summer foods perfect for grilling, portobellos are my favorite. Because of their tender, juicy texture and mild…

Vegan Buddha Bowl

Vegan Buddha Bowl

Lately, I’ve been such a hummus junky. I’m constantly dipping raw vegetables, especially carrots and cucumbers, as a snack or small meal. I’ve even found that if I’m craving something sweet, hummus and carrots does the trick. I know hummus is hardly a sweet treat, but for some reason, it’s been working for me as…

Raw Vegan Broccoli In Cheese Sauce

Last week, a new friend contacted me asking if I knew of any vegan caterers in the area, and if not, would I be interested. She was looking for someone to make a staff meal for 14, because with one vegan and one vegetarian to accommodate, she decided to go all-vegan. Did I mention I…

Vegan Rosemary Chick’n With Roasted Potatoes

I had my wisdom teeth drilled out on Monday and it’s been a much slower recovery than I was expecting. I still look like a greedy chipmunk, and I’m not sure if I have dry sockets, but the pain gets pretty intense. Plus, my stomach didn’t much agree with the medications I was given, so…

Vegan Coconut Curry in a Hurry

Vegan Coconut Curry in a Hurry

The last few times I’ve needed to get a meal on the table in a hurry, this has been the recipe I’ve made. I love that it’s pretty much a throw-it-all-in-the-pan-and-presto meal, but is still super delicious and fairly healthy. A big nod goes to Vegan Salt for introducing me to coconut curry. Hers was…

Broccoli Slaw And Perfect Vegan Cheesecake

This morning, while my little man ate his oatmeal with organic blueberries and green juice, I decided I just had to organize my pantry right then and there. There I am, it’s 5:30am, in my yoga pants and tee shirt pulling out flours, oils, and ingredients galore, left and right, running out of places to…

Vegan Sweet And Sour Peppers With Tender Bites

February 14, 2011

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope yours was as great as ours! The little man was so excited to put on his new Valentine’s Day shirt displaying a sweet puppy with a heart reading, “Sloppy Kisses 25¢”. After a breakfast of banana and peanut butter hemp seed toast, he went to play in the living room,…

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…

Gardein Vegan Spring Rolls And Beefless Bites

December 15, 2010

Just in time for holiday party season, Gardein has come up with two new appetizer recipes to share, chick’n spring rolls and beefless bites.  Send these pretty babies around the room and I’m guessing you’re going to get your tray back licked clean.  I love that the ingredient lists are kept brief because goodness knows…
