More Adventures from Appetite for Reduction

A bounty of canned beans found its way into my pantry this week, and since they all came in so fast, I apparently felt I had to get them into food just as fast.  I pulled out Appetite for Reduction again to see what it had to offer and pulled out a few recipes that [...]

The SOS Kitchen Challenge

So when I saw this over at Diet, Dessert and Dogs, I knew that it was something I had to do.  After all, I can never ignore a challenge, and the Iron-Chef Fan in me loves the idea of having a specific ingredient I need to invent for…although I was kind of concerned, because beets [...]

Curry Tofu and Mushroom Stoup and Toori

This “stoup” make actually be my favorite Rachael Ray recipe that I’ve made…but I shouldn’t say that, because I seem to remember really enjoying some at some point.  Instead we’ll just say that it’s my favorite for this week. I did make a few changes as well, so who knows, perhaps the original isn’t even [...]

Mango-Ginger Tofu and Sesame-Ginger-Miso Dressing

I never thought I’d say this, but there is such a thing as “too much mango”.  I’ll go head and admit it, the Mango-Ginger tofu from VwaV was too much mango for me.   I could only handle a small helping of this stuff because it was just so overpoweringly sweet and mango-ey.  There was no [...]

Tempeh-Mango Salad Sandwiches and a Peak at my “Garden”

  When I saw the first mangos of the season, I knew I had to make the mango-tempeh salad sandwiches from VwaV.  Biggest lesson?  Don’t buy mangoes until we’re actually INTO the season, they were pretty weak.  One of the two never got ripe, and the one that felt perfect was stringy and somewhat brown [...]

Valentines Dinner

This was me and my boyfriend’s third V’Day together and we did the same thing we have the last couple years, which is cook a nice dinner together, for just the two of us. This was the first time our Valentines dinner was completely Vegan, although with all the coconut milk it was beyond decadent, [...]

Mango-Quinoa Salad and Portabella Burgers

It’s been really hot and humid the last couple days…so we lugged the grill back out onto the porch (according to building rules we don’t have one, so SHHH!) and made it a little hotter. Earlier in the day, I’d marinated a couple portabella caps in a mixture of balsamic vinegar, olive oil,cooking sherry, and [...]

First TRINIDADIAN food ever…

We really did two main courses last night…a pretty hefty Asian soup, and a Trinidadian curry over Moroccan whole wheat couscous. (tastes just like the normal stuff, score huge) The soba noodle and Napa cabbage soup came from Claire’s All-American Vegeterian Cooking, written by Claire Crisculo, the owner of the BEST vegetarian restaurant in New [...]

Salad and Sandwich…it’s too hot for soup

Tonight’s dinner was pretty eclectic. One of my bosses at work is a Veggie who eats fish and shellfish, and we often exchange recipes. Thinking I eat shellfish (I don’t) the other day she gave me a recipe for a mango/shrimp cocktail from Rachael Ray’s morning talk show. I looked at the ingredients and decided [...]
