Tempeh Reuben

Since I’m back on 3-11s 4 days a week, I’ve been making myself lunch and eating a conglomeration of fruit and leftovers for dinner while at work. I’m really unhappy with it, but there isn’t much choice, so today, I’m sharing some lunch: I made the tempeh reuben from VwaV with a couple minor changes. [...]

AppleSauce Oat-Bran Muffins

Yet another muffin of the week…this one being the Apple Sauce Oat Bran muffins from V’con. I used Organic Apple-Raspberry sauce instead of plain old Apple, and for the suggested dried fruit, I decided to venture a bit out of the box and chop up some dates. GREAT IDEA. The dates were sweet and delicious, [...]

Honey Ginger Tofu

This was a recipe from Rachael Ray’s $40 A Day cookbook, and it just didn’t work. It’s entirely possible that this was my fault. I replaced the chicken with tofu, and didn’t squeeze it out beforehand, so it didn’t crisp up as much as I wanted it to. I also replaced the cornstarch with arrowroot [...]

Kimchee, Potato-Edamame Samosas with Coconut Mint Chutney, and Lo Mein

I’d been wanting to try out the Quick Kimchee from Vegetarian Planet for awhile now, and I finally got around to it this week. Granted, it’s been awhile since I’ve had real kimchee, but I’m pretty sure this tasted nothing like the real thing. Or looked anything like the real thing… This actually reminded me [...]

Spinach Vichyssoise with Stewed Tofu and Potatoes in Miso Gravy

I’d never actually made a Vichyssoise before, and frankly I think the name is rather ridiculous. Basically it’s a creamed veggie soup with lots of milk…or in my case, soy milk. Big whoop. This version came from Vegetarian Planet and it was ok…the salt and pepper were what made it, otherwise this pretty much would’ve [...]

Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins

This week I decided to try out the Mocha Chocolate Chip muffins from VwaV. Let me summarize these for you. Chocolate cake. Shaped like a muffin. Shot of espresso included. AMAZING. Selah.

Vegan Quesadillas

Now I realize that Vegan quesadillas is an oxymoron…what with queso meaning cheese and all..but I wasn’t sure what else to call them. This was actually a conglomeration of a couple Vegan Dad recipe from the cookbook, but since I’m an over achiever, I went and found them on the site for you as well. [...]

Mushroom Curry

This is a recipe I’d been wanting to try from Melbedggood since we’re always up for trying new mushroom recipes over here. I added some chopped scallions to the recipe for a bit of green, and used a full teaspoon of hot Asian chili paste. I’m pretty sure I also doubled the tomato paste, although [...]

Sweet Potato-Watercress Hash, Stir-Fried Turnip Greens, and Asian Marinated Tofu

I realize that the sweet potato hash recipe in VwaV is supposed to be a breakfast food, but I really don’t think I’d want it for breakfast. The sweet potatoes are very rich and savory, and watercress is simply not a breakfast vegetable as far as I’m concerned. Don’t get me wrong, this was REALLY [...]

Javanese-ish Noodles

Originally, I was trying to make the recipe for Javanese Noodles from Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian. I’m not entirely sure what her dish was supposed to look and taste like, because apparently it was written above a BA reading level, and I got totally confused and lost at some point. Since I’d already had to [...]
