More from the World of Appetite for Reduction

I’m still playing with my new toy these days…checking out the recipes it has to offer, and deciding which ones I’ll be making again and again…and which will probably never see the light of day a second time.  Among those that I tried this weekend, were the OMG Oven-baked onion rings, the Green Goddess dressing, [...]

Morning ‘Glory” Bread

I actually have this great mutual arrangement worked out.  A friend of mine has a subscription to Vegetarian Times, even though she isn’t a Vegetarian and doesn’t cook.  I’m not sure exactly how she ended up with a subscription, but I can’t complain, because every month her copy shows up, she quickly flips through it, [...]

Tamarind BBQ Tempeh and Sweet Potatoes and Ginger Bok Choy and Soba

These were two nights of dinner, and we went 50/50 in terms of success.  Both meals were from Appetite for Reduction which I’m still playing with, and while it hasn’t had any abject failures yet, some things just taste more like diet food than others.  The Ginger Bok Choy Soba was simply lacking…there was nothing [...]

Potato-spinach Knishes, VwaV Pad Thai, Hoisen Tofu Lettuce Wraps, and Red Velvet Mole

So I’m finally back from vacation, things are starting to settle back into a rhythm (just starting, I’ve got a ways to go yet) and I figured it’s time I write a bit about the last couple things I made before leaving for the West Coast, as well as the first couple meals I made [...]

Baked Pasta, Cabbage Salad, and Mock Lamb (Seitan) Stew

Everyone’s gotta have a fall back…and mine is generally a baked pasta dish of some sort…I combine cooked noodles, whatever veggies are on hand, and a really quick version of Vegan White sauce…usually with some prepared red sauce or salsa as well…top with breadcrumbs, and oven-bake.  It’s a real cop-out in terms of cooking a [...]

Potato Chickpea Enchiladas and Arroz con Seitan from Vive Vegan

This is basically just a picture post…because I don’t want to break copyright laws, and if you don’t have Vive Vegan yet…what on earth are you waiting for????  I’m totally in love with the Arroz con Seitan on page 145 pictured here…I was out of peas so I replaced them with corn but otherwise followed [...]

Chipotle, Corn and Black bean Stew

I hadn’t pulled Vegan with a Vengeance down in awhile, and I decided it was time to give something new a shot…preferably something for which I already had all the called-for ingredients.  Enter the Chipotle, Corn, and Black Bean Stew.  (page 60)  I didn’t actually have chipotles so I should probably change the name…I used [...]

Balsamic Roasted Butternut Squash and Pearl Onions

One of the exciting things about going to the grocery store on black friday (Where there are no HDTV Doorbusters or consumer stampedes) is that generally unexciting cheap vegetables that were overstocked and overpriced for Thanksgiving are suddenly VERY cheap, and widely available.  Take boiling/pearl onions.    Wednesday, November 24th, 2 servings worth would have run [...]

Pesto Vegetable Pizza

There’s nothing quite like a pizza with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes on it…those are my favorite toppings at a Western Massachusetts Pizza place of choice, and it’s even better when I can top my own, and add lots of other goodies as well.  Corn on pizza is something you see a lot of in Israel [...]

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 [...]
