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. Bene, there’s a product those people will […]

Ciao a tutti! 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 […]

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 […]

Vegan “Pollo” Polpette

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. Polpette. Meatballs are sooo […]

The Most Authentic Vegan Pasta Carbonara

Prima ero vegano, I never tried pasta carbonara. I find that odd since it has four ingredients I loved: pasta, uovo, 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 […]

7 Anni Vegan – Selective Compassion

Today is my 7-year vegan anniversary. Every year I try to reflect on how being vegan has changed the way I think, feel, live and look at the world. Because it does change – there are times I’m more angry, times I’m more sensitive, times I feel empowered and times I feel helpless. It’s certainly […]

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. Gravemente. 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 […]

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. Prima di tutto, 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 […]

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

Recentemente, I’ve been craving pizza. Un sacco. 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. E croccante. I like my pizza crispy as opposed to chewy. That’s where flatbread pizza comes in. I’ve shared […]
