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 […]

Baked Cauliflower “Mac” and Cheese with Peas and Review of Teese Vegan Cheddar Cheese

We all love mac and cheese but now that the weather is getting warmer and our sweaters are put away, it’s time to lighten up our usual dishes. Since cauliflower is the new kale and people are using it for everything, it only made sense to use it for a low-carb substitute for pasta. Mac […]

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this Skillet Cheesy Enchilada Stew

Today is Cinco de Mayo, a day of celebration and lots of good food and drinks. So I had to share this amazing dish I made. Well, it’s not really a dish – it’s an entire pot full of ooey-gooey cheesy, soy curl-y goodness. For some reason, I had cheese fondue in my mind. I’ve […]

Vegan Orange Soy Maple Sticky Tenders with Beyond Meat Homestyle Tenders

A couple of weeks ago I was reading a cooking magazine and they had an article on 25 different types of chicken wings. They all looked delicious and disturbing at the same time. Delicious because I used to LOVE eating chicken wings and disturbing because I used to LOVE eating chickens’ wings. What a difference […]

Asparagus Tofu Tartines with Light Vegan Hollandaise Sauce

I’ve been a fan of Rachael Ray since before I was vegan. So much of what I know about cooking I learned from watching her. Once I became vegan, I continued to watch her shows, read her magazines and learn more. I also attempt to veganize many of her recipes. My dream, after all, is […]

Raw or Almost Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake

I don’t post a lot of raw recipes. In fact, this may only be the second one in the years since this blog began. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for raw food but except for salads, I prefer my food hot.  The hotter, the better. Cheesecake, however, is one food you don’t eat hot […]

Vegan Tofu Veggie Pot Pie with Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuit Top

Everyone is talking about EatPastry cookie dough. It comes in 7 different flavors that you can bake into goodies or eat raw. Unfortunately, I can only live vicariously because no one sells it where I live. Everyone is not so fortunate to live near a Whole Foods supermarket. The company did send me their gluten-free […]

Vegan “Chicken” Paprika over Wide Noodles and Kale

One of my favorite spices is paprika. It’s in my top 5 of herbs and spices I can’t live without, sitting alongside garlic, oregano, cumin and nutmeg. I add it to pretty much all my dishes so the idea of making an entire sauce with it is tantalizing. Chicken paprikash, also known as chicken paprikas […]

Purim Lessons and Vegan, Gluten-Free Hamantaschen

Purim is coming! Purim has always been my favorite Jewish holiday, probably because it’s one of the few where you can make noise in synagogue and it’s not only ok, it’s encouraged. Everyone gets noisemakers called groggers and you can stamp your feet loudly. It’s the most fun you get to have in temple. Over […]

The Secret to Crispy Tofu and Vegetable Lo Mein with Crispy Tofu

One of the questions I get asked a lot is how I get my tofu so crispy. No, you don’t have to deep-fry it to get it that way. No cuisine needs crispy tofu as much as Chinese food does and since it’s Chinese New Year for the next 2 weeks, I thought I’d share […]
