Why I Could Never Quit Being Vegan

  Whenever I have a vegan-versary or veggie-versary, I write an essay focusing on what veganism means to me, what struggles I work through or some other batch of feelings I need to express. יולי 21, 2015 marks 7 years to the day I watched “פגוש את הבשר שלך,” stopped eating meat and began my vegan […]

Vegan Ice Cream Bon Bons and Review of NadaMoo Dairy-Free Desserts

Let me tell you about me and ice cream. Don’t expect a love story, אם כי, because that’s not it. As a kid I liked ice cream. Of course I did; what child doesn’t like ice cream? But I didn’t love it. When the ice cream truck would drive by, the “Pop Goes the Weasel” […]

Vegan Pepper Steak with Homemade Rice-a-Roni

So many of the recipes I develop happen because I crave my mother’s cooking. All of a sudden, as if out of nowhere, this craving hits me and it’s powerful. It engages all my senses – I’m back in the kitchen and I can see her food on the stove, smell the delicious aroma, hear […]

Chocolate-Covered Cheesecake Bites with Madecasse Chocolate

If you know me from my blog posts, then you know I’m not a huge fan of chocolate and sweets. I’m much more of a savory girl. But if there were a chocolate that could change my mind, Madécasse is the company that makes it. The story of Madécasse is enough to make you fall […]

Double Black Bean Tofu Cheeseburgers with Mori-Nu Silken Tofu

While I like to consider myself something of a tofu aficionado, I’m not so experienced using silken tofu. I think I used it once or twice while attempting tofu omelets and Matzoh Brei. But otherwise, I don’t think about using it too much. Now I’m trying to change that and learn my way around silken […]

Carrot Dogs

This 4th of July, I had to get on the carrot dog bandwagon. I’ve seen pictures on social media of all these carrot dogs and they always look so good. So as the 4th of July approached, I started telling Tom about carrot dogs. He laughed at the idea, not thinking that carrots could become […]

Buffalo Soy Curls Mac & Cheese with Soy Curls Crumble

This recipe is my Ode to Soy Curls. Butler Soy Curls are one of my favorite products. I remember the first time someone told me about them – she warned me they were addicting. ובכן, I have been hooked for years. Soy curls are one of the most versatile products out there. אתה יכול […]

Portobello Seitan Stroganoff and Review of Sweet Earth Natural Foods (חלק שני)

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 (חלק ראשון)

When I write recipes I don’t usually label them as “the best,” “the ultimate” או “מושלם” 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 […]

Vegan Orange Soy Curl Chicken

מה? Two soy curl recipes in a row??! You probably think you won the lottery! Maybe you did. All I know is that I made this dish last night and it was so good, I had to share it right away. It wouldn’t be fair to make you wait weeks for it. Last night I […]

Vegan Soy Curl Caesar Salad and Cheesy Breadsticks

My favorite salad has always been Caesar salad. There was a time that it was the only thing I ever ate when I would go out to lunch. If I ever ordered something else, I ended up regretting not getting the Caesar salad. Caesar dressing is just so good. זה עבה, מוקרם, מלוח וטעים. […]

Vegan Buffalo BBQ Chicken

It’s summer (כמעט) and summer makes ones thoughts turn to all thing BBQ. Even though I make my BBQ dishes indoors, I still love when they taste spicy, smoky and decadent. I’ve made a few BBQ dishes that I’ve posted here: Seitan לסמי המנגל וצלעות טמפה; Baked BBQ Tofu and Tempeh and Orange Balsamic […]

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fudge

This may be the shortest recipe I’ve ever posted. Unlike most of my savory dishes, it doesn’t have a dozen herbs and spices. And unlike many of my recipes, it has only 4 rather than 40 מרכיבים (5 if you count the cooking oil spray which is optional). Even my dessert recipes usually have a […]

Jamaican Soy Curls in Curried Tomato Cream Sauce

Years ago when I first got into cooking, I would watch cooking shows on TV endlessly. I credit watching these shows with the majority of my cooking knowledge. אז, I used to get some local cable channels that played cooking shows not aired on the usual giant networks. That was very fortunate for me […]

Vegan Jamaican Curried “Goat” Stew with Upton’s Naturals Seitan

Time does not heal all wounds. I know that I will be vegan for the rest of my life but that can never change that I wasn’t for the first half of my life. It can’t bring back all the animals who suffered and died for my appetite. While I look back and feel shame, […]

סקירת מוצר: הכלב העצלנית קוקי Co.

We love our dogs and fur babies more than anything so it doesn’t make sense to feed them food or snacks that are anything but the best. That seems obvious yet so many dog foods and treats have questionable ingredients. The way I see it, if I wouldn’t eat it, I’m certainly not going to […]

Vegan Strawberry Cheese Blintzes with Strawberry Basil Compote and GO Veggie!® Cream Cheese

Whenever my mother made blintzes, she would make dozens…פשוטו כמשמעו. She would easily make about 100 בלינצ'ס – cheese and potato – and freeze them so we could enjoy them for weeks and months to come. My favorites were the potato blintzes with mashed potatoes mixed with caramelized onions. I’ve made a vegan version of my […]

Italian White Bean Dip and Plentils from Enjoy Life Foods

When it comes to salty, crunchy foods, I have very little willpower. You can keep your chocolate and your ice cream; just give me the chips. It’s because I have so little control over potato chips that I either try to avoid them or I make my own Homemade Baked Potato Chips. So when a crunchy […]

Broccoli and Vegan Cheddar Fritters

When I posted my Vegan Potato and Spinach Cheddar Fritters last week, I realized that I never posted the recipe for these fritters which I had made weeks earlier. The idea for these fritters came because I had some broccoli to use up and I was in the mood for something more decadent than a […]
