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. This town has one small natural foods store where they sell just enough vegan products to be vegan-friendly […]

The Most Amazing Potato Nachos and Review of Sweet Earth Foods (Part One)

When I write recipes I don’t usually label them as “the best,” “the ultimate” or “perfect” as some people do. I’ve always felt that sounded a bit conceited and was up to the eaters to decide for themselves. But calling this recipe just “Potato Nachos” didn’t seem accurate. It needed something else. And something more […]

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 […]

BK Supperclub Challenge: Seitan Steak in Beurre Blanc Sauce with Oven-Baked French Fries

This Bitchin’ Kitchen Supperclub Challenge was probably a meat-eater’s dream. Rib-eye steak cooked in tons of butter with a white wine butter sauce served with french fries cooked in duck fat. Yuck!! Tons of cruelty, tons of calories, tons of fat, tons of NO WAY!! What a great challenge, though, for me to veganize! I […]

BK Supperclub Challenge: Balsamic BBQ Seitan and Tempeh Ribs

This week the Bitchin’ Kitchen Supperclub Challenge was BBQ ribs. I love when the challenge requires me to really veganize the dish beyond just swapping out dairy or eggs. It’s fun to push the limits of my (sometimes limited) imagination and come up with a compassionate version of a meat-centric meal. I decided to make two […]

VeganMoFo: "P" is for Potato Crusted Seitan

The “V” Word continues the celebration of VeganMoFo, the month of delicious Vegan food, with the other 25 letters of the alphabet. “P” is for Potato Crusted Seitan. Since I have been gluten-free for many months, I suppose “P” could also stand for “past” and because I miss seitan so very, very much, it could […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Spinach-Stuffed Seitan, Deconstructed Edition

As promised, here is the easier version of the last recipe for Spinach-Stuffed Seitan Roast. This version involves making the seitan into cutlets and does not need the oven (which is good for the summer). This version also has a smoother, softer, less chewy “meaty” texture (which I happen to prefer) so no knives are […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Spinach-Stuffed Roast Edition

When special occasions arrive, there is usually an impressive entrée presented to the table. Vegans may find themselves choosing between a Tofurky roast or Field Roast, both of which are very good. But if you want to really impress your guests, make your own creation. This is a delicious vegan version of a spinach-stuffed roast […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: "Chicken-Fried" Seitan Steak with Buffalo Vinaigrette Edition

Before I became a vegan, my favorite food was chicken. In particular, two of my weaknesses were fried chicken and Buffalo wings. When I was a child, my mother would make the most delicious fried chicken. It required several wet paper towels because our hands would get so greasy. Whenever we went out to eat, […]
