Chicago Diner Vegan Seitan Pot Pie

September 21, 2010

I couldn’t even tell you the last time I ate pot pie.  It was definitely before college.  It isn’t that I don’t like pot pie, I love it, but making it myself seemed too time-consuming, and those freezer section pot pies are just caloric death traps.  When you check the back of the box you’re…

Vegan Pasta With Truffled Roasted Fennel

Vegan Pasta With Truffled Roasted Fennel

This pasta has a lot of vegetables and color, but I think the real stars here are the white truffle oil, sliced fennel bulb, and black pepper.  Fennel bulb can have a strong flavor and liquorice scent, but when it’s roasted it becomes much milder and less overpowering.  My whole little family loves this pasta…

Vegan Chipotle Yams And Zucchini With Quinoa

Vegan Chipotle Yams And Zucchini With Quinoa

I created this spicy vegan recipe over the weekend and we absolutely love it!  It’s the perfect “between seasons” dish while we’re in limbo between summer and fall.  The colors of the vegetables are just so vibrant against the quinoa, and we all know how much I love a pretty meal!  The adobo sauce can bring…

Vegan Mini Polenta Pizzas, Udon, And Fresh Fig Bars

I was planning on blogging about all of this last night after I put my little man to bed, but it’s all a blur.  I definitely don’t remember falling asleep, but next thing I knew I was waking up, grabbing for a clock.  Eleven o’clock?!  Dang it!  It was too late to gather enough brain…

Speed Vegan Linguine With Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce And Balsamic Mushrooms

August 17, 2010

Tonight’s dinner was seriously out of this world amazing.  I once again cracked open Speed Vegan to make Linguine with Sun-dried Tomato Sauce.  To accompany the vegan pasta I decided on the Balsamic Mushrooms, partly because they sounded delicious and partly because I had mushrooms. The flavors of olive oil, garlic, and sun-dried tomatoes all…

Vegan Uncheese Zucchini Herb Calzones And Lemon Teasecake

Vegan Uncheese Zucchini Herb Calzones And Lemon Teasecake

If you can’t tell from my last post, I’m crazy about The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook.  So why would I want to end the party already?!  This morning, I thumbed through this new-to-me cookbook classic in search of the perfect lunch.  When I found Cheezy Zucchini and Herb Calzones (page 130), I knew we had a…

BBQ Baked Tofu And Vegan Fried Okra

BBQ Baked Tofu And Vegan Fried Okra

It’s a hot, beautiful day and I’ve already taken the little man on two bike rides!  This morning, as we were rounding the last street on our adventure before heading towards home, we came across a man leaf blowing the pebbles, leaf pieces, and dirt from his portion of the already clean street.  He had…

A Little Trip And Vegan Taco Soup

July 31, 2010

I’ll keep this post short and sweet because I know it’s Friday night, but when I haven’t blogged for a couple of days I miss you all!  My mom and I took a little trip to Shipshewana, Indiana to check out the flea market.  We didn’t really find anything while we were there, because what…

Kale Chips And Vegan Pasta Salad

Kale Chips And Vegan Pasta Salad

Even with my devout love of kale, I’d never made or tried a kale chip until last night.  I’ve seen various recipes for them around blogs; I’ve even seen them packaged for sale on shelves at Whole Foods.  And despite wanting to make them for so long, this poor recipe kept getting pushed aside.  Finally,…

Stuffed Peppers And The Joy Of Vegan Baking Brownies

July 20, 2010

I’m not even going to talk about it, because I know I this stuff pops up way too often on my blog, but there may or may not have been raw carrot and zucchini noodles with raw alfredo on my plate at lunch.  It was an official clean out the fridge leftovers lunch, as far…
