Tempeh Reuben Sandwiches

So this is one of those recipes that I’m veganizing without ever having had it in its original form. If you asked me what a non-vegan Reuben sandwich contains, I couldn’t tell you one specific ingredient other than sauerkraut. I never did like cold cuts (and WOW, how that term, “cold cuts,” makes so much […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Quick Quesadillas Edition

Given that my life is currently like a cross between a Lifetime movie and a Law & Order episode, I haven’t been able to indulge in one of my favorite activities: cooking. Besides not feeling well enough most of the time, I don’t have my cookbooks, my utensils and gadgets, my pots and pans or […]
