Polenta Lasagna with Roasted Vegetables

Yet another Vegan Dad recipe…this is the last (of the week) I promise. I’ve used cornmeal to make cornbread, and to crust various things, I’ve even made the creamy porridge like polenta…of which I’m not a fan. I never really liked cream of wheat for breakfast, and that’s what it reminded me of…except for dinner. [...]

Sweet Potato Shepards Pie

I was partially listening to Rachael Ray at some point last week, and saw that she was making a sweet potato Shepards Pie. It sounded like a great idea to me, and so later that night when I was at work and bored out of my mind, I put together a recipe for a Veggie [...]

Veggies and Stuffing

We’re coming up on Thanksgiving, and even though thanks to my work schedule I’ll be spending the holiday alone, I’ve been feeling the need to make thanksgiving food anyway. Today’s dinner really consisted of a couple sides…some simple veggies, and a vegan stuffing. The veggie side started off with some quickly blanched green beans. The [...]

Savory Kugel and Neatloaf

Tonight’s meal was pretty rustic and comfort food-esque, without a lot of fat. Sadly my kugel is not vegan, due to the egg noodles and the two eggs I used to bind everything together. I’m not sure what would take the place of the eggs here, since Ener-G is more of a rising than a [...]

Roasted Root Veggies

With a serious chill setting in, I decided to try out a heartier version of roasted veggies. It ended up a little different from my original plan, but still not bad. Into the casserole dish went: a HUGE daikon root we picked up at the asian market, a couple very large carrots, a large onion, [...]

Potato Rolls and Vegetable Phyllo

The last time I attempted a roll it was also potato…sweet potato in fact, and I was making it for thanksgiving last year. Long story short, it didn’t work, and I ended up with two dozen orange rocks….yum….rocks. It reminds me of a childhood story about stone soup. Almost twelve months later and I finally [...]

Seitan Pot Pie

This was an idea I had awhile back when a co-worker was talking about his favorite food…chicken pot pie. My immediate thought was ‘why on earth haven’t I done that?” and I set about coming up with a recipe. I don’t know that I’ve ever had a real pot pie…even in my pre-vegetarian days, but [...]

Vegan Dad’s Lasagna Rolls

I took this on as a challenge partially because of a co-worker, but I’m so glad I did. I work with a guy who is VERY lactose-intolerant, and we’re always talking about Vegan recipes…although he will eat vegan ceaser dressing with chicken… We’d been talking a lot about vegan cheese, and how/if it melts, when [...]

Mac N Cheese

I’ve made the kraft stuff out of a box…I’ve made Annies white shells (way better) and I’ve made the Mac Daddy from V’con. (Good as a dish, but nothing like actual mac and cheese). I’ve never made the REAL stuff from scratch, and so this was my first attempt. I decided on the recipe in [...]

Guest Post – Eggplant Parmesian

There’s a new addition to the blog this week, an entry from my best friend Andi from Vermont that came to visit for the weekend. She decided to make her famous eggplant parm that we absolutely love… check it out! Now just as a note, this is a real “comfort food” and not vegan, but [...]
