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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Homemade Calzones, Easy Queso Cheese Sauce and a Review of Field Roast Cheese Slices

I’m pretty sure every vegetarian and vegan knows about Field Roast and if they don’t, they need to get acquainted with them right away! Field Roast makes grain meat and they do it exceedingly well. Field Roast was created in 1997 in Seattle when Chef David Lee combined the European tradition of sausage-making with the […]

Flourless Nut Butter Cookies and Tofu in Spicy Peanut Sauce Plus a Review of Once Again Nut Butters

I do not like peanut butter and jelly. Nope, never have, never will. It’s probably because I don’t have a sweet tooth. I do, however, love peanut butter and cream cheese. When I was in grade school, every Friday the cafeteria would be closed for the upcoming Shabbos and each classroom would get a tray […]

Product Review: Broccoleaf and a recipe for Jamaican (Ital) Soy Curls Curry with Broccoleaf

I love reviewing new vegan products and spreading the word about all the wonderful vegan items on the market. The one thing I usually don’t get to review, however, is vegetables. Well, not fresh vegetables, anyway. Most products are foods that come in jars, bags and boxes. Plus, I don’t usually think about vegetables as […]

Orange Balsamic BBQ Tempeh and Cheesy Chickpea Polenta

The other night I have a craving for BBQ. Whenever I make BBQ, I want mashed potatoes on the side. But I was out of potatoes. Then I thought polenta would be good but I didn’t have any cornmeal or polenta either. 🙁 I was getting ready to think up something else for dinner when […]

Spanish Cheesy Wheat Berries with Veggies and Jovial Foods Organic Einkorn Wheat Berries

Even after 6 years of being vegan and writing hundreds and hundreds of recipes, there are still foods I have never tried. It’s hard to believe but true. So many people think they will be deprived on a plant-based diet but the truth is, before I was vegan, I ate the same things over and […]
