Ceasar and Rustic Beans and Shrooms

So this is going to sound a bit weird, but my friend left her pet food in my fridge and I made it into Ceasar.  More specifically, she left the organic romaine she feeds her guinea pigs, and the only thing I ever really do with Romaine is make it into (Vegan) Ceasar salad.  I [...]

Couscous with Tofu

I wasn’t in the mood to cook much (if at all…has it been hot and humid forever???) so my first thought was couscous.  You really only need to boil water for the couscous itself, and by the time you pour in the grain you can turn off the heat, so in terms of summer foods…it’s [...]

Mediterranean Orzo

There’s nothing like an orzo salad, and while I didn’t have the patience to cool this, it was also delicious hot.  So I amend my statement…there’s nothing like an orzo salad that’s just as good hot as it is cold.  Enter last night’s (quick) and easy dinner. The other awesome thing about this orzo was [...]

Pistachio Encrusted Tofu

When the waitress rattled off the specials of the evening, one was a pistachio encrusted tilapia, and that gave me an idea. Pistachio crusted tofu of course! The only real issue with [...]

Homemade Pasta

So this was my first attempt at making my own pasta with my new machine….it could have gone better. On the bright side I figured out what I was doing towards the end, so there were some good noodles…unfortunately there were also a lot of “noodle clumps”. The good news is that we live and [...]

“half” Vegan quiche

I know there’s no such thing as “half vegan”. Either a dish is Vegan or it isn’t…but with quiche I’m taking it slow. We’re talking about a dish that’s normally got three different dairy product, cheese, milk, and eggs. If I make a tofu cake in crust, that could very well be a good dish, [...]

Loot!!!!

I’m sorry I’ve been gone for a few days…I was working the gross 3-11 shift that obliterates any chance at life, and then we lost power for about 18 hours, which makes cooking well…tough, to say the least. I actually made a really good pasta sauce while the power was out, but didn’t bother trying [...]
