Edible Stuff

So I’ve got the flu…or its nasty older brother.  I’ve barely been mobile for the last week, although I feel better in the evenings then I do during the day, so I’ve been attempting to go out and get things done then…which is probably part of why I feel so dead when I get up [...]

Cranberry Beans and Lemony-Roasted Veggies

This was an evening of beautiful vegetables, and when you have beautiful vegetables, the preparation should be as simple as possible.  First off, I got my first ever cranberry beans, which look awesome on the outside, and on the inside when you shell the fresh beans.  Unfortunately when cooked, all the color leeches out into [...]

Kung Pao Tofu

I’m not entirely sure why a cookbook is necessary to make a stirfry…and that’s what this was.  A GOOD stirfry, sure, but a  stirfry nonetheless.  The oven-baking method for the tofu was pretty good, but that’s the only part of the recipe I’d really save and go back to.  The portion pictured is over rice, [...]

Mock Duck Stirfry over Green Tea Soba

Whenever a recipe features something like “mock duck”, you know I’ve been to the Asian Market, and that’s exactly where I was yesterday, leading to this dish.  I know stir-frys are pretty standard, but this one was among the more delicious, so I decided to post it anyway. Loot acquired at the Asian Market yesterday [...]

Sundried Tomato-Asparagus Quiche

Oooooh YUM.  Sometimes I feel like I need to draw a family tree for recipes by the time they make their way to me.  This one actually started it’s life in VwaV, a book that I OWN, but somehow missed it in.  As far as I can make out, this version went from VwaV—>Pink Stripes–>Yeah, [...]

Grilling Day 2

Once you start, you just can’t stop.  Oh wait…that’s Pringles, and I’m actually not a huge fan, what are Pringles made out of anyway?  They don’t taste like potatoes, and they’re definitely not corn chips.  But I’m off topic. The idea here was basically to grill anything and everything sitting in the fridge.  I went [...]

Asparagus Crepes and Moroccan Apricot Seitan

I went back to Vegan Dad’s cookbook to try the asparagus crepes I’ve been eyeing for awhile.  I used his dinner crepe recipe as well, eliminating the sugar since I simply wasn’t sure why it was included.  The crepes didn’t taste like they were missing anything, so I stand by my decision.  This may be [...]

Tomato Asparagus Quiche

I found another V’con recipe I hadn’t tried yet…that being the Quiche.  I must say I was intrigued by a vegan quiche with no egg replacement, no tofu, no fake cheese…no liquids to speak of, and I had something to prove.  A beloved friend (when she heard the ingredients) was convinced it would never hold [...]

Asparagus Portabella Quinoa

This was the last night of Passover…I intend to wait until after dark for dinner tomorrow…it’s going to be a carb fest.  We did quinoa again tonight, and frankly if I was writing a cookbook, this would be the first recipe.  It was absolutely delicious. This may not look like much, but it was DAMN [...]

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 [...]
