TLT!!!!

So….tempeh, lettuce and tomato hasn’t been in my life for awhile…I’m not sure why, since it’s such a classy combination of deliciousness…but we seem to have gone our separate ways, and yesterday I decided it was time for a reunion.  I had sandwiches on the mind, because the Foodbuzz publisher program that I’m a part [...]

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, [...]

Vegan Dad’s English Muffins

So in general genius fashion, we forgot to buy bread when we went shopping this week, and came home to discover we had about three slices left for the entire week.  Not good.  I wasn’t feeling up to making a loaf, but I had been eying the english muffin recipe in the Vegan Dad cookbook [...]

Falafel Night

Since tonight was Lag B’omer and the fire wardens around here don’t look kindly on bonfires…I made one of my favorite Middle Eastern snacks for dinner instead.  I can’t believe that I’ve never made my own falafel before, but it may have something to do with it being deep fried.  Whatever….I very rarely fry things, [...]

Anise Flavored Bread and Celery Gratin

First off, who on earth cooks celery for an HOUR?  While I thought this was pretty good (others weren’t as keen) I still think attempting to cook celery for an hour is pretty ridiculous.  As it turns out, I didn’t get to keep it in that long anyway, because after about half an hour in [...]

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 [...]

Pepper Bake and Pad Thai

The pepper bake is actually a thicker version of a flatbread, and is VERY good. The recipe came from Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian and was real easy to make. There’s no yeast involved, as I’m sure you can tell from the picture, although it does require you to cover and leave it alone for an [...]

No-Rise Bread

Even a non-baker like me couldn’t screw this up. (too bad; the bottom did burn a bit) This bread was deliciously crusty on the outside and luxuriously soft on the inside. It was great for sopping up all the sauce from the vegan baked ziti that was sadly gobbled up too fast for a picture. [...]

Sloppy Joes

I did it. I saved the “veggie burgers” from Vwav, and they were absolutely delicious. I’d been wanting to try out a sloppy joe tvp rendition for awhile now, and although I’ve never even had the original version, when it occurred to me that I could try it with the failed burgers, I was quickly [...]

Garlic Bread and Stuffed Shells

My freshman year of college, I was very into the “dinners” you could order from every run of the mill pizza place. For about 8 bucks, you could score a huge serving of pasta (at the time baked ziti was my poison of choice), a side salad, and a chunk of garlic bread. Tonight we [...]
