Pasta Cici, Brussels and Onions…and oh yeah, FRIED PICKLES

I had a good friend over for dinner the other night, and he made his specialty, Pasta Cici.  Or as I refer to it, pasta with chickpeas and fennel.  It’s only fennel seeds, but when you get a bite of the stuff, you certainly know it’s there.  Not that that’s a bad thing…I love fennel, [...]

Chickpea Dal or Chana Dal

So I’d been craving Dal for awhile, which pretty much guaranteed it would be a let down when I finally made it.  This certainly wasn’t bad, but it didn’t live up to my week long craving either.  I thought I’d over-salted in an effort to overcome my constant Indian food issue, which is that it’s [...]

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, [...]

BBQ Seitan and Spicy “Tuna” Sushi. Plus a really cool dish made with the extras

First off, I need to give credit to an awesome condiment. I finally made the spicy sushi (or suSI as Bobby Flay would say) sauce from Just The Food and it’s great. I even put it in a squeeze bottle so I could drizzle fun patterns over the sushi. There were a few different rolls [...]

“Tuna” Salad and Lemon-Cherry Squares

The tuna salad recipe came from Lindyloo over at Yeah That Vegan Shit who got it from…somewhere else. I had to replace the red onion with white and I’d finished my celery in the wonton soup the day before, but I kept everything else more or less the same. Instead of kelp powder (which I [...]

Un-Crabcakes and Southwestern Corn Pudding

This was a Southern themed dinner, albeit from different sides of the south. Representing the Bayou, we have Vegan Dad’s Crispy Cajun Crabcakes Mine looked nothing like his, but they tasted pretty darn good…I suppose I just don’t have his skill as far as beautiful food goes. Mine were also more yellow then red, which [...]

Orange Glazed Scones and Mashed Potatoes with Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy

So today was a VwaV day, and OMFG did it make up for the TVP burger disaster. Breakfast was a combination of the leftover tempeh bacon from yesterday (my omni friend who’d never heard of tempeh before this morning even liked it!) and the orange glazed scones (also from VwaV). The scones were ridiculously easy, [...]

Cornmeal-Masala Rousted Brussel Sprouts with Spiced Yogurt Sauce over Chickpea Basmati Rice

This one isn’t a looker, but boy was it filling and delicious. This was a combination of three V’con recipes (count em!) and not one steered me wrong. I did fail on my secondary mission of getting my other half to like brussel sprouts, although I won a small victory as he DID enjoy the [...]
