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 […]

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 […]

Summer Squash Tartlets with Caramelized Onions and Tofu Ricotta

It’s getting near that time when people who are lucky enough to have vegetable gardens are overrun with squash and zucchini. Sadly, I’m not one of those people. However, I recently got a bunch of these adorable crock bowls with handles and I keep trying to think of different ways to use them. So far […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

VeganMoFo: Sunny Anderson and Gluten-Free Breakfast Sausage

The “V” Word continues its celebration of VeganMoFo with the theme “If TV Celebrity Chefs Went Vegan.” Since Veteran’s Day is quickly approaching, I thought I would dedicate this page to someone who is not only a celebrity chef but also a United States veteran, Sunny Anderson. Sunny Anderson, of Food Network’s Cooking for Real […]

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 […]

VeganMoFo: "Z" is for Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

The “V” Word completes its celebration of VeganMoFo, the month of Vegan food, with the last letter of the alphabet. “Z” is for Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. It seems only fitting that we end VeganMoFo the way we started it – with muffins and another attempt on my part at baking. These muffins are […]

VeganMoFo: "X" is for Xi Hong Shi Chao “Jidan”

The “V” Word continues its celebration of VeganMoFo, the month of Vegan food, with the other 25 letters of the alphabet. “X” is for Xi Hong Shi Chao “Jidan.” Gotcha! I bet you thought it was going to be Xanthan Gum or Xtra Spicy something or other. Ha! Truth be told, I was worried about […]
