Pan-Fried Tofu with Zucchini, Carrot and Black Bean Sesame Noodles

Normally, I don’t make a lot of cold dishes or pasta salads but the weather has been so hot lately, it seemed like a good idea. Of course, I still have to deal with the heat in the kitchen since this is a cooked dish even if it’s served cold but at least it feels […]

Vegan Orange “Chicken” with Zucchini Noodles

Lately, I’ve been enjoying adding oranges to my dishes. I’ve made this Vegan Orange “Chicken” a few times before and it’s so delicious. It can be made with Beyond Meat Chicken-Free Strips, tofu or tempeh. It can be made with seitan but then it’s more like Orange “Beef” which would also be fantastic. I’ve always […]

Vegan and Gluten-Free Potato Blintzes

It’s Shavout, the Jewish holiday where we commemorate receiving the Torah, and for most people who celebrate, it brings to mind dishes that focus on dairy. However, I just read an interesting article on The Jewish Daily Forward called “Want Authentic Shavout Meals? Try Fruit, Not Dairy.” The article states that dairy was not an […]

How to Make a Vegan Passover Seder Plate Plus a Recipe for Charoset

  Anyone who has been to a Passover Seder knows that the Seder Plate is the centerpiece of the table. It is rich with symbolism of the Exodus of the Hebrew slaves and is a main part of the Seder’s ceremonial rituals. But some of the items on the Seder plate are not vegan-friendly and […]

Buffalo Tempeh Meatballs and Super Bowl/Puppy Bowl Party Food

  There are two things I can never get enough of: puppies and food that is Buffalo-style. On February 2nd, I can indulge in both. While most of the country will be watching something called the Super Bowl, I’ll be settling with lots of red, messy, finger-licking deliciousness while watching the Puppy Bowl. Puppy Bowl […]

Qrunch Green Chile Burgers with Yellow Rice and Roasted Vegetable Medley Topped with Jalapeno Pepper Mayo

Over the years I have developed about a dozen vegan burger recipes – partly because I love burgers and partly because there aren’t many prepared vegan burgers that I like enough to buy. To me, most of them don’t have a lot of flavor and the texture leaves a lot to be desired. And finding […]

The Feast of the Seven Vegan Fishes

The Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American Christmas Eve tradition. It dates back to the Roman Catholic tradition of abstaining from meat and dairy on Fridays, during Lent and on the eves of certain holidays. People would instead eat fish that was usually fried in oil. Over the years, many types of fish […]

Gluten-Free Cookies For Santa: Chocolate Hazelnut Drop Cookies and Chai Spice Cookies

Did you hear the news about Santa? If the word on the strip mall circuit is correct, Santa has gone gluten-free! Apparently, all the flour from all the cookies all these years has taken a toll on his intestines. Maybe Santa’s round belly is filled with more bloating gases than jelly. I also hear that […]

It’s Here! Introducing V-Meat, The “V” Word’s Gluten-Free Answer to Seitan

  Seitan and vital wheat gluten are magical. They are. They let us make food that is so close to animal meat, it’s scary. They add stretch and elasticity to food and give it that “chewy” texture we want in burgers, cutlets, steaks and more. But what happens if you’re gluten-free? Beyond Meat is amazing […]

Baked Pumpkin Spice Glazed Doughnuts

  Wow, this has been a rough week. On Sunday night, the wind and rain was so bad from a storm that we lost power. Even though we got the power back on Monday, we had no internet or cable until today! We actually went 5 days with no TV or internet! We were totally […]

Gluten-Free Biscuits: Pumpkin Feta and Garlic & Rosemary Cheddar

A couple of years ago I attempted baking gluten-free biscuits. This was when I had first started eating gluten-free. They were terrible! Either they came out dry and crumbly or as heavy as a hockey puck. I chalked it up as a loss, reaffirmed my hatred of baking and moved on to other recipes. But […]
