Double Black Bean Tofu Cheeseburgers with Mori-Nu Silken Tofu

While I like to consider myself something of a tofu aficionado,  I’m not so experienced using silken tofu. I think I used it once or twice while attempting tofu omelets and Matzoh Brei. But otherwise, I don’t think about using it too much. Now I’m trying to change that and learn my way around silken […]

Portobello Seitan Stroganoff and Review of Sweet Earth Natural Foods (Part Two)

When I offered to do a review and develop a recipe for Sweet Earth Natural Foods, I honestly didn’t expect much. I live in the middle of nowhere with no Whole Foods or Trader Joes in sight.

When I write recipes I don’t usually label them as “the best,” “the ultimate” or “perfect” as some people do.

My favorites were the potato blintzes with mashed potatoes mixed with caramelized onions. I’ve made a vegan version of my […]

Italian White Bean Dip and Plentils from Enjoy Life Foods

When it comes to salty, crunchy foods, I have very little willpower. You can keep your chocolate and your ice cream; just give me the chips. It’s because I have so little control over potato chips that I either try to avoid them or I make my own Homemade Baked Potato Chips. So when a crunchy […]

Chile-Soy Tofu with Sauteed Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes with Dijon Horseradish Gravy

Usually, the recipes I post are for a single dish rather than the whole meal but this composed dish was so amazing that I had to keep it all together. I knew I was making tofu for dinner and Tom said he wanted mashed potatoes so that was on the menu. The only question was how […]

Vegan Potato & Spinach Cheddar Fritters with Horseradish Dipping Sauce

Yesterday was one of those days when I didn’t know what to make for dinner and the veggie supply was running low. You know those times – you look through the fridge and try to figure out what you can make from what you have, like it’s a basket on Chopped. I had potatoes and […]
