Pan-Fried Tofu with Zucchini, Carrot and Black Bean Sesame Noodles

Normally, I don’t make a lot of cold dishes or pasta salads but the weather has been so hot lately, it seemed like a good idea. Of course, I still have to deal with the heat in the kitchen since this is a cooked dish even if it’s served cold but at least it feels […]

Vegan Orange “Chicken” with Zucchini Noodles

Lately, I’ve been enjoying adding oranges to my dishes. I’ve made this Vegan Orange “Chicken” a few times before and it’s so delicious. It can be made with Beyond Meat Chicken-Free Strips, tofu or tempeh. It can be made with seitan but then it’s more like Orange “Beef” which would also be fantastic. I’ve always […]

Vegan and Gluten-Free Potato Blintzes

It’s Shavout, the Jewish holiday where we commemorate receiving the Torah, and for most people who celebrate, it brings to mind dishes that focus on dairy.

Indian Vegetable Curry with Mung Bean Fettuccine and Explore Asian Review & Giveaway

  It used to feel that the only options one had when it came to pasta was which shape to buy – spaghetti, ziti, bowties, elbows, etc. Then when I began eating gluten-free, the number of choices I had dropped significantly – spaghetti, rotini and maybe fettuccine. But then I discovered eating other types of […]

Vegan Apple Mini-Galettes and Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pie Crust Mix

  “Easy as pie.” I’ve always had issues with this saying. Tom uses it a lot and it’s become a sort of bit between us. He says something is as “easy as pie” and I reply, “Pie is not easy!” Because to me, baking is not easy. While I am not as baking-challenged as I […]

Butler Soy Curls Review and Recipes: Buffalo Soy Curls

  As my followers know, the food I thought I “couldn’t live without” was chicken. My father used to say I ate so much chicken that one day I would sprout feathers. When I gave up meat, I wasn’t sure how I was going to survive without chicken. Over the years, however, I have learned […]

Fruit.0: a Review, a Giveaway and a Recipe – Cashew “Chicken” and Broccoli in a Mango Pear Pineapple Sauce

  Whenever we go out for a long drive or need to run errands we know we have to bring along some snacks because it’s hard to find healthy, vegan snacks out there. Even at the college where I teach, there is little to choose from. The vending machines are filled with chips, cookies and […]
