Pumpkin Tofu Scramble with Tofu Feta and Greens

  It’s October! October is my favorite month of the year. The weather is cooler and the leaves are turning to all my favorite jewel-toned colors: orange, green, brown, red and purple (hey, there are purple leaves!). It’s the month of Tom’s and my anniversary. This year will be 10 YEARS since we met in my […]

Chickpea Omelets with Mushrooms, Greens and Vegan Swiss

You know how lots of people say they didn’t/don’t think they could live without cheese? Not me. Other than mozzarella and grated parmesan, cheese didn’t factor into my life that much. When I used to dream of becoming a vegetarian, I thought I couldn’t live without chicken, my favorite food. Wrong again. Turns out the […]

Beyond Meat Chicken-Free Satay with Peanut Dipping Sauce

Two years ago I felt really lucky. I got to try this new product at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary’s ThanksLiving event. The new product: Beyond Meat Chicken-Free Strips. They were incredible and even more incredible was that the dinner was prepared by the amazing Terry Hope Romero. Beyond Meat was not available for purchase then […]

Baked BBQ Tofu and Tempeh

Mmmm…nothing tastes like BBQ. But for vegans, barbeques can be really hard to deal with. No longer does the smell of the BBQ mean a delicious meal is on the way. For vegans, the smell is associated with the suffering and death of animals. Well, we can change that. Vegans can enjoy delicious BBQ too. […]

Spinach, Tomato and Cheddar Mini-Quiches with Lemon Cashew Cream

I used to love eggs. Not all kinds of eggs. In fact, hardly any kind. I liked scrambled eggs and omelets. That’s pretty much it. Not a lot of variety but I really loved eggs in those 2 ways. Eggs were the last animal food I eliminated when I became vegan. For me, cheese was […]

Matzoh Brei over Steamed Kale

How do you spell “matzoh?” Everytime I write the word, I think I spell it differently. Matzo. Matzoh. Matza. Matzah. Hmmm… Two years ago I posted a recipe for Fried Matzoh. I said then that the same recipe would work for Matzoh Brei which is true. But because I love fried matzoh and not matzoh […]

Vegan Gefilte "Fish"

Passover was one of my favorite holidays during my childhood. It meant attending a seder which meant having a special dinner with my grandfather. He would be so proud of me when I, as the youngest, asked The Four Questions in Hebrew, and he would recite the answer to me. Other highlights of the holiday: […]

General Tso’s Tofu with Steamed Broccoli and 5-Spice Brown Rice

When I was a kid, I refused to eat Chinese food. My parents would go to The Green Dragon Chinese Restaurant in the Bronx and they had to bring along food for me to eat. Dad would get fried rice, Mom would get vegetable chow mein and the only thing I would eat was the […]

Spinach, Artichoke and Mozzarella Tofu Frittata

Frittatas are one of those dishes that I veganized without ever having eaten in my pre-vegan days. But I wanted to make something light for dinner and as much as I love tofu scrambles, I just wanted to change it up a bit. This is incredibly easy to make. Putting it together takes 5 to […]
