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 […]

Chile-Soy Tofu with Sauteed Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes with Dijon Horseradish Gravy

Usually, the recipes I post are for a single dish rather than the whole meal but this composed dish was so amazing that I had to keep it all together. I knew I was making tofu for dinner and Tom said he wanted mashed potatoes so that was on the menu. The only question was how […]

Vegan Potato & Spinach Cheddar Fritters with Horseradish Dipping Sauce

Yesterday was one of those days when I didn’t know what to make for dinner and the veggie supply was running low. You know those times – you look through the fridge and try to figure out what you can make from what you have, like it’s a basket on Chopped. I had potatoes and […]

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this Skillet Cheesy Enchilada Stew

Today is Cinco de Mayo, a day of celebration and lots of good food and drinks. So I had to share this amazing dish I made. Well, it’s not really a dish – it’s an entire pot full of ooey-gooey cheesy, soy curl-y goodness. For some reason, I had cheese fondue in my mind. I’ve […]

Vegan Tofu Veggie Pot Pie with Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuit Top

Everyone is talking about EatPastry cookie dough. It comes in 7 different flavors that you can bake into goodies or eat raw. Unfortunately, I can only live vicariously because no one sells it where I live. Everyone is not so fortunate to live near a Whole Foods supermarket. The company did send me their gluten-free […]

Vegan “Chicken” Paprika over Wide Noodles and Kale

One of my favorite spices is paprika. It’s in my top 5 of herbs and spices I can’t live without, sitting alongside garlic, oregano, cumin and nutmeg. I add it to pretty much all my dishes so the idea of making an entire sauce with it is tantalizing. Chicken paprikash, also known as chicken paprikas […]

Homemade Calzones, Easy Queso Cheese Sauce and a Review of Field Roast Cheese Slices

I’m pretty sure every vegetarian and vegan knows about Field Roast and if they don’t, they need to get acquainted with them right away! Field Roast makes grain meat and they do it exceedingly well. Field Roast was created in 1997 in Seattle when Chef David Lee combined the European tradition of sausage-making with the […]

Flourless Nut Butter Cookies and Tofu in Spicy Peanut Sauce Plus a Review of Once Again Nut Butters

I do not like peanut butter and jelly. Nope, never have, never will. It’s probably because I don’t have a sweet tooth. I do, however, love peanut butter and cream cheese. When I was in grade school, every Friday the cafeteria would be closed for the upcoming Shabbos and each classroom would get a tray […]

Vegan Caramel Popcorn and G.H. Cretors Popped Corn Review

You know the saying on the potato chips commercial about how “you can’t eat just one”? Well, I’m sure they wrote that for me because I love salty, crunchy snacks and when I get near a bowl or bag of potato chips, it won’t last very long. My best defense is to not buy any […]

Spanish Cheesy Wheat Berries with Veggies and Jovial Foods Organic Einkorn Wheat Berries

Even after 6 years of being vegan and writing hundreds and hundreds of recipes, there are still foods I have never tried. It’s hard to believe but true. So many people think they will be deprived on a plant-based diet but the truth is, before I was vegan, I ate the same things over and […]
