Rustic White Beans with Mushrooms and other Thanksgiving-like Delights

I’ve been cooking sides and desserts to bring home to the family Thanksgiving all weekend, and I decided to make a thing or two for myself as well come dinnertime.  I did the rustic white beans with mushrooms from Veganomicon (using canned beans and oyster mushrooms), topping with breadcrumbs and oven-baking for 25 minutes.  I [...]

Mojo Seitan and Enchiladas

Mmmm enchiladas, nuff said.  As far as food goes, I’d have to say I grew up in a fusion household.  I don’t think it was intentional, but when I think back on it, my mother’s top specialties were (are) falafel (Middle Eastern), Kugel (straight up Ashkenazic Jew food), Stir Fry (Asian) and enchiladas(Mexican-ish).  Lasagna made [...]

Tofu Banh Mi

If you’re anywhere near as Food Network obsessed as I am (and hopefully you aren’t because I’ve started having dreams about Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and that’s a problem) you probably caught an episode or two of the Great Food Truck Race this past summer.  My favorite truck for the duration of the show was [...]

Potato Roti Curry with Gluten-free Apple Crisp for Dessert

The Potato Roti Curry is another test recipe from Cooking Light Way to Cook Vegetarian, and this one is actually 100% Vegan!    I couldn’t wait to try this, especially since it looked like stew and with the fist snow a week or so behind us and temperatures dipping by the day, it is officially soup [...]

Skillet Baked Pasta and Veggies

I’ve done pasta frittata, I’ve done plain old pasta in sauce with veggies, but I don’t often do the oven-baked pasta “casserole” that my mother made often when I was a kid.  I didn’t want to fill this one with ricotta and cheese like those pasta casseroles of my childhood, but I did include the [...]

Middle Eastern Chickpea Miniburgers

I promises some recipes from Cooking Light: Way to Cook Vegetarian and here’s your first one.  I also tried the fruit salad with citrus-mint dressing from the book, which was good..but all fruit salads are, I just don’t think it warranted a write up as anything different.  But moving on, last night I gave the [...]

Ho Cakes and Sauteed Chard

Eat your heart out Tara.  Anybody?  True Blood?  Every time I hear someone mention ho cakes, all I can think about is Tara in True Blood…the first time her Mother is sober and makes ho cakes, and then again this past season when Sam makes them for her the morning after…she seems to think the [...]

Coming off an Injury with Fava Beans and Couscous

I realize its been awhile, but I’ve got a good excuse.  I got in a serious car accident about a week and a half ago now, and broke my collarbone, so after the eight and a half hours in the emergency room, I was all wound up in this intense sling/brace combination thing, and couldn’t [...]
