LOTS of FOOD PORN

If that title doesn’t draw you in….I really don’t know what will.  I have been eating recently, although a lot of things are repeats I’ve made before or too simple to bother photographing (do you really need to see my umpteenth salad again?  Probably not…) but whenever I make a good looking plate I do [...]

Eggplant Dengaku and Quinoaaaaaa

We’re coming into quinoa season, I can tell.  Not that quinoa isn’t widely available year round and pretty much impervious to weather changes, but my quinoa season happens soon…real soon.  It’s called Passover, and as an Ashkenazi Jew and Vegetarian, it’s pretty much the only thing resembling a grain or protein that I can eat.  [...]

Adventures in Appetite for Reduction

I’ve been hearing all these great things about the Arabian Lentil and Rice Soup from Appetite for Reduction.   I also thought it would go really well with the sweet potato drop biscuits from the same book.  I replaced the lentils in the soup with fava beans (because I just can’t bring myself to want anything [...]

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 [...]

Savory Indian Sweet Potatoes and Chickpea Curry over Rice

These two things are pretty different and not really both necessary in a single meal, but I figured since I was making one I might as well do both and have leftovers…which is how it went down, and not to surprise, I loved the one I’d had before and was lukewarm about the other, although [...]

Cold Chickpea Salad and Mushroom Stuffed Eggplant

This is going to sound weird…but while I love falafel and Hummus (basically two different forms of chickpeas) I generally don’t like the things whole…if it actually looks like a chickpea…9 times out of 10, I’m not interested.  It was REALLY hot last week though, and I simply didn’t have the patience to make hummus, [...]

Hot Dog n’ Kraut Sandwiches and Falafel Pasta

I’ve been eating strange food lately…normal (or fairly normal) ingredients, but in pretty abnormal combos.  I’m not normally a dogs and kraut person at all, but I was having a craving earlier this week, and once I did it…I had to have it twice more in three days. To assemble my little piece de resistance [...]

Diet, Dessert and Dogs…times 3

So one of my favorite Vegan Blog reads is over at Diet, Dessert n Dogs where pretty much EVERYTHING pictured looks absolutely mouth-watering, and makes me want to eat it NOW.  This week I decided to give a few of the recipes I’d been lusting after a try, and wasn’t disappointed, although one was a [...]

Chickpea “crabby”cakes

The one thing that really sucks about these…before I even get started, is that I made them awhile ago, and don’t remember exactly what I put in them.  I remember them being really darn good…and wishing I made twice as many as I did….but I’m just not sure I’ll remember everything I put in them, [...]

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 [...]
