Product Review: Patty Up Gourmet Meat Alternative

Often when people take meat out of their diet, they replace it with beans. If you’ve ever eaten veggie burgers or vegan meatloaf, it was probably made with some type of bean or legume. But not everyone can eat beans or just don’t like the taste of them. Well, there’s a product those people will […]

Tarka Dal

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted a new recipe. My computer is STILL in the shop and I’m using their loaner. But I’m done letting that stop me – that and being insanely busy with our shop (Woodstock Reveries). So here’s a new recipe for a dish I’ve been […]

A Jamaican Vegan Feast

One of my followers pointed out that the Ziggy Marley web site where the recipes for my Jamaican Vegan Feast were posted doesn’t seem to be active. She asked if I could post those recipes right here on The “V” Word and I said you bet! My review for Ziggy Marley Organics was written back […]

The Most Authentic Vegan Pasta Carbonara

Before I was vegan, I never tried pasta carbonara. I find that odd since it has four ingredients I loved: pasta, egg, bacon and cheese. But somehow this dish fell under my radar. I know about it mostly from watching cooking shows on TV. It’s Rachael Ray’s husband’s favorite dish, the first dish she ever […]

BBQ Pulled Carrots Sandwiches

Mmm…BBQ! When Tom and I were planning our elopement in North Carolina, we were more excited about eating authentic Southern barbecue than we were about getting married. Seriously. We watched endless barbecue cooking challenges and travel food shows on television. We read up about how to find the best, most authentic barbecue (they suggested restaurants […]

Continuing with our healthy recipes during January (or #Veganuary) as we like to think of it, I have to share this recipe for these Superfoods Oatmeal Cookies. When you want a snack, these are perfect. You can eat them raw or bake them as I did. They’re oatmeal cookies but they are so much more […]

Asian Soy Curl Salad

This is my new favorite salad. If I could only ever have one kind of salad again for the rest of my life, it would be this one. First of all, it’s the prettiest salad I’ve ever made. It’s filled with all different colors from the greens, the red cabbage, the carrots, the red onions […]

Pumpkin Rotini with Mushrooms and Punk Rawk Labs Smoked Cashew Cheese

A scientist, a record store owner and a nutritionist walk into a kitchen…sounds like the beginning of a joke but instead it’s actually the beginning of a great company called Punk Rawk Labs. Punk Rawk Labs is a woman-owned, Minnesota-based company formed in 2010. It was created when one of the founders, Alissa, had a […]

Greek Lemon Soy Curls and Potatoes

Last night I was trying to think of what to make for dinner. When I can’t decide, I try to narrow it down – which ethnicity? which ingredients? comfort food or healthy? saucy or not sauce? Yesterday, I was feeling like Butler Foods soy curls but not saucy. Not a stew or soup. I wanted […]

Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free Individual Spinach Artichoke Flatbread Pizza

Lately, I’ve been craving pizza. A lot. But I didn’t want to make a giant pie with yeast and kneading and the oven. I wanted pizza that was quick, easy and cooked on the stove top. And crunchy. I like my pizza crispy as opposed to chewy. That’s where flatbread pizza comes in. I’ve shared […]

Product Review: Hilary’s Eat Well

When I first read about Hilary’s Eat Well and their products, I wanted to try them so badly. The kind people at Hilary’s sent me coupons but there was no place in my town that sold their products. About a year later, they sent me more coupons (mine had expired) and two of their salad […]
