פּראָדוקט איבערבליק: 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. געזונט, 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 […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Spicy Eggplant Sausages

What do you do when you love vegan sausages but they don’t sell them in any markets near you or are just out of your budget? Even worse, what happens if you’re gluten-free? געזונט, then you make your own at home. It’s really easy. I wanted to make a gluten-free version of my favorite sausages, […]

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 Best Vegan Chicken Burgers Ever!

One of my favorite fast-food things to eat in my pre-vegan era – I guess that would be like 2004 B.V. – was chicken burgers. I would go to Wendy’s and get their chicken sandwich with mayo, lettuce and tomato. Not surprising since my favorite food was chicken and fried chicken cutlets were a staple. […]

וועגאַן “הינדל” Meatballs

It’s been a busy summer and I’ve been neglecting writing up my recipes. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been cooking or creating new recipes; I just haven’t been good about writing them up and posting them. Today that changes because I promised some people that I would get this recipe up. Meatballs. Meatballs are sooo […]

Vegan Chilaquiles

If you eat a gluten-free diet, finding snacks that are healthy and delicious is important. That’s why it’s so great that there are companies like Beanfields Snacks. Their line of bean and rice chips are gluten-free, vegan and sooo good! I’ve reviewed Beanfields Snacks several times. They won a Trudy Award for Best Snack Food […]

The Most Authentic Vegan Pasta Carbonara

איידער איך איז געווען וועגאַן, I never tried pasta carbonara. I find that odd since it has four ingredients I loved: מאַקאַראָנען, יי, 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

ממם…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. אַפ אַנ עמעס. 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 […]

Raw Beet and Sweet Potato Salad with Almonds and Orange Balsamic Dressing

This past Chanukah, Tom bought me a spiralizer. I’ve wanted one for a long time although I can make long veggie noodles with a julienne peeler. But it’s not the same, you know? So yesterday, I finally took it out of the box and after a few missteps, I got the hang of how to […]

Cape Malay Curry with Turmeric Cinnamon Rice

The other day I was doing research for an article on how to cook with African flavors. That’s one of the hot food trends this year and I couldn’t be more excited. I love the bold flavors of African cuisine and it’s so diverse from region to region, that I know there are a lot […]

Superfoods Oatmeal Cookies

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 […]

גלוטען-פרי, Yeast-Free Individual Spinach Artichoke Flatbread Pizza

לעצטנס, 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 […]

Sweet Crepes with Chocolate Sesame Spread and Soom Tahini

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, כאָטש, 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, די “Pop Goes the Weasel” […]
