Sesame Asparagus and an Old Favorite Improved

I made a green salad with the homemade miso dressing from Vegetarian Planet as well, but it isn’t pictured. I said there would be more asparagus if they continued to look so delicious, and here it is: This is the sesame asparagus recipe from VwaV, which is really simple, but good. I’ve never had an [...]

Wonton Soup

Just another quick lunch entree to prove that I am, in fact alive. I wish I could figure out how to make wontons like this, cause these were GOOD. The broth was a quick combination of sliced ginger, Korean hot sauce, salt and pepper. I added some sliced mushrooms and leftover celery just before the [...]

Mexican Night!

I actually don’t think I’ve had a hard taco shell since high school…early high school, so I was pretty excited when we decided to do Mexican Night. We got a package of tortillas, and another of the hard taco shell, and set up a Mexican Food assembly line. Personally, I went for a taco and [...]

Black Bean Un-Koftas, Crumbled Potatoes with Edamame, and Red Cooked Daikon

This was a very ethnic meal, which I’m sometimes thrilled with, and other times they can be a flop. This one was good. Flipping through Brand Name Chinese, I saw a recipe for lamb koftas, which are meatballs with an almond stuffed inside, covered with a thick yogurt based gravy. Commence mission veganize: I came [...]

Asian Noodle Soup with Bok Choy and Shitake Mushrooms, Bok Choy, Edamame, Cashew and Orange Rice, and Cold Asparagus with Korean Sauce

You know what’s really annoying? Cookbooks that feel the need to name every recipe after ALL of its ingredients, so that my blog title is about three feet long. Obviously they were thinking of what this would do to me when they published the cookbook…and I DON’T appreciate the sentiment. But all that aside, this [...]

Tofu Dill Salad Sandwiches

I’m becoming a very big fan of lunch…I’ve been rediscovering the sandwich of late. Today I went with the Tofu Dill Sandwiches from VwaV, mostly because the ingredients were really basic and I had them…mostly. I had to replace the red onion with white, and the fresh dill with its dried counterpart. All the same, [...]

Mushroom and Onion Burger

The burgers themselves weren’t mushroom and onion, they were the ones I made A couple weeks ago and froze for enjoyment on a later date. I reconstituted some shitake mushrooms from the pantry, and then sliced them into slivers. They went into a medium skillet with half a large onion, cut into slivers, a couple [...]

Meatloaf (The Band) and Banana Split Pudding Brownies

Being somewhat fed up with the crumbly, rather bland, veggie meatloafs I’ve had in the past, I decided it was high time to try one of my own….and I was pretty happy with the results. It was somewhat crumbly until it had cooled for awhile and set up, but it still held its shape much [...]

Un-Crabcakes and Southwestern Corn Pudding

This was a Southern themed dinner, albeit from different sides of the south. Representing the Bayou, we have Vegan Dad’s Crispy Cajun Crabcakes Mine looked nothing like his, but they tasted pretty darn good…I suppose I just don’t have his skill as far as beautiful food goes. Mine were also more yellow then red, which [...]

Simple Crusty Bread and Straw Mushroom Pasta

Hey I’m getting the hang of this baking thing! I’ll be honest…the entire purpose behind making this was that I’m having a HORRIBLE week, and needed to punch something..err…knead, I meant knead. I found this recipe at the New York Times Website, and they weren’t kidding when they call it SIMPLE crusty bread. This has [...]
