Random Eatings

I was in the mood for some good ole sausage and peppers the other day, and went back to a classic Vegan Dad Recipe for sausages.  I replaced the Pinto Beans with Cannolini, and basically threw in half my spice rack, but other then that I stuck with the original.  While the sausages were steaming [...]

Hash with Green Dressing

If you’ve been with me for a long time, you may have recalled my mentioning something called Green Dressing, which is a secret recipe I wasn’t given permission to share.  Well I made it again this week, and I’m feeling awful generous, so here’s your chance to make the best stuff on earth!  (May be [...]

Trader Joes “Mozz” and Stuffed Artichokes

So there’s a Trader Joes about 20 minutes away from me, which I used to find pretty exciting…but then I discovered Edge of the Woods (the Vegetarian Grocery in New Haven) which became my regular shopping destination, followed by the Whole Foods that recently opened right near the Trader Joes for anything I couldn’t normally [...]

Tempura Fried Seitan and Maple Baked Carrots

So you know when you start out intending to do one thing, and you run into one issue, followed by another…and end up with something completely different from what you had intended, but probably better anyway?  That’s basically what happened here, with what was supposed to be beer battered Seitan (think the same consistency as [...]

Pomegranite Tofu, Black Bean Burgers and Cretan Stew

The Black Bean burger from V’con is an old favorite of mine that I hadn’t done in awhile, and when I was poking around in the pantry the other day and saw a few cans of black beans, I knew what I had to do.  My favorite part of these is actually how well they [...]

How to go Vegan (or Vegetarian)and be Healthy

So this is a post that I promised a friend a while back, and have had trouble getting around to, even though I think it’s a great idea  It just seemed to me like it would take so much darn EFFORT.  But it’s important, so I’m going to give it my best shot. Whenever someone [...]

Diet, Dessert and Dogs…times 3

So one of my favorite Vegan Blog reads is over at Diet, Dessert n Dogs where pretty much EVERYTHING pictured looks absolutely mouth-watering, and makes me want to eat it NOW.  This week I decided to give a few of the recipes I’d been lusting after a try, and wasn’t disappointed, although one was a [...]

This is why I don’t cook out of Vegetarian Planet…the Post.

Vegetarian Planet is a great looking cookbook with a lot of great looking recipes…that’s why I bought it way back when.  However, the more recipes I’ve made from it, the more I’ve discovered that on the whole they are bland and unimaginative, and a lot just plain don’t work the way they’re supposed to….case in [...]

Chickpea “crabby”cakes

The one thing that really sucks about these…before I even get started, is that I made them awhile ago, and don’t remember exactly what I put in them.  I remember them being really darn good…and wishing I made twice as many as I did….but I’m just not sure I’ll remember everything I put in them, [...]
