Southwestern Tofu Scramble with Greens

By now you may have heard the tragic story about the 50,000 hens who were left to starve when a Turlock, California egg-farm owner, Andrew Keung Chung, ran out of money and just abandoned the birds. Animal Services were called to the ranch after complaints about the smell. They found that the chickens hadn’t been […]

Mexican Sunday Brunch

Aaahhh, Sundays! Sundays mean different things to different people. For some it’s a day of rest after a long week of work. For some it means attendance at church to pray and give thanks. For some it means a day to spend quality time with family and friends. Throughout my life, Sunday has always had some […]

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 […]

The “V” Word continues to celebrate VeganMoFo, a month of incredible Vegan food, with the other 25 letters of the alphabet. Today “O” is for Onion and Apple Relish Tofu. Ok, honestly, the name of this dish is Tofu with Onion and Apple Relish but I turned it around to make it start with an “O.” Consider […]

VeganMoFo: "H" is for Herbed Tofu Scramble

The “V” Word continues to celebrate VeganMoFo, a month of delicious Vegan food, with the other 25 letters of the alphabet. Today the letter “H” is for Herbed Tofu Scramble. When I first learned to make tofu scramble, I added so many ingredients it was way too filling for breakfast. With onions, peppers, mushrooms and […]

VeganMoFo: "F" is for Fried Buttermilk Tofu

The “V” Word celebrates VeganMoFo, a month of Vegan food, with the other 25 letters of the alphabet. We are up to the letter “F” and what better word for the letter “F” than my one remaining vice – “Fried.” Today “F” is for Fried Buttermilk Tofu. Along my journey, I have eliminated a lot of things from […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Tofu in Spicy Pepper Sauce Edition

While I believe everyone in the world should see the light and go Vegan, I have a list of certain celebrity chefs that I especially wish would turn their talents to cruelty-free cooking. Heading that list is Rachael Ray. I have to admit I have a special place in my heart for Rachael. It’s because […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Tempeh Po’ Boy Sandwich Edition

Leftovers have such a bad connotation. Who wants to eat the same old thing that you just had the other day? That’s a recipe for BORING! But rather than see leftover food as just another rerun, see it as an opportunity to turn it into something completely new and delicious! For instance, my recipe for […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Spinach Tofu Gnudi Balls Edition

And since we were just speaking about balls and word origins, it seems only fitting that the next recipe be for my Vegan Spinach Tofu Gnudi Balls. Yes, I said Gnudi Balls. Laugh all you want and keep your mind in the gutter if that’s where it’s most comfortable but Gnudi Balls are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Tempeh "Crab" Cakes with Horseradish-Dill Mayo Edition

When I was growing up, my dream was to live in City Island.  It wasn’t really about City Island, per se. I loved the water, the boats and the marina and City Island was the only place I had ever been that had those things. Having grown up in the South Bronx where swimming in […]

Every year at the end of the Spring semester, my colleagues and I would attend the commencement ceremony for our College. Graduation is always held at Madison Square Garden with the marquee congratulating our students, the College’s name up there alongside those of celebrities and athletes. We find, press and then dress up in our […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Tofu Nuggets and Raw Kale Salad Edition

In the old days, during the 20th century P.V. (pre-vegan), I ate a TON of fast-food. In fact, I’m quite embarrassed to say here just how much fast-food I ate but given that I’ve lost over 110 lbs., I guess that’s no shock. One of the foods I had absolutely NO willpower around was Wendy’s […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Breakfast Edition: Tofu Scramble with Mushrooms and Red Potato and Onion Home Fries

Like many people with food and weight issues, I never used to eat breakfast. I usually didn’t wake up hungry; in fact, too many times I woke up still tasting the unhealthy food I had eaten too much of the night before. Or I might be rushing to work, thinking I didn’t have time to […]
