Mushroom Spaghetti and Two more Tester Recipes

I’d been wanting to try the recipe for Mushroom Fettuccine in Appetite for Reduction for awhile, and even though I didn’t have the mushroom soup or mushrooms called for, I made due with what I DID have, and this came out SOOOO good, possibly my favorite pasta dish ever.  (And I realize I say that [...]

Rustic White Beans with Mushrooms and other Thanksgiving-like Delights

I’ve been cooking sides and desserts to bring home to the family Thanksgiving all weekend, and I decided to make a thing or two for myself as well come dinnertime.  I did the rustic white beans with mushrooms from Veganomicon (using canned beans and oyster mushrooms), topping with breadcrumbs and oven-baking for 25 minutes.  I [...]

Tofu Banh Mi

If you’re anywhere near as Food Network obsessed as I am (and hopefully you aren’t because I’ve started having dreams about Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and that’s a problem) you probably caught an episode or two of the Great Food Truck Race this past summer.  My favorite truck for the duration of the show was [...]

Mushroom Olive Empanadas and Chimichurri Tofu

This post could also be named “….or why I’ll never be making anything but Mexican Food every again” because I finally caught up with the rest of the Vegan world and got my own copy of Viva la Vegan” by Terry Hope Romero.  I can’t wait to give the coconut flan a try, but I [...]

Tofu Calabrese

This is another idea I got from my girl Rachael Ray….she was making Chicken Calabrese on her show last week and it looked so darn good (minus the chicken and bacon) that I had to give it a try with tofu…and so I did.  I thought this was ok, and since it was one of [...]

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, [...]

Potato – Broccoli Soup and Pasta Frittata

It cooled down for most of last week, and with that dip in temperature,  I was craving soup again.  I decided to pull out V’con again, since its been sitting on the shelf for awhile, and see if there were any new soups I hadn’t made yet and had all the ingredients for.  I was [...]

Indian Loaf and Spinach

I had been craving Indian flavors, and although the recipe I was looking at called for a quinoa loaf with absolutely nothing Indian about it, I felt I could take it in an India direction, and that’s exactly what I did…although it’s pretty darn spicy, so I wouldn’t recommend eating without a healthy dollop of [...]

Simple Balsamic Pasta with Roast Veggies

There are two veggies I find go really well with balsamic vinegar….asparagus, and mushrooms.  I don’t normally make them together, but this time around, I figured, hey, why not?  I was also craving carbs, so balsamic-oven baked veggies over pasta it was for dinner. Ingredients 1 bunch asparagus, bottoms removed and cut into thirds Approx [...]

MooShoo Pancakes and Swiss Chard Risotto

Exhibit 1 that I have too much free time on my hands…I made myself risotto…for lunch.  It was really darn good, but I’m going to talk a bit about the mooshoo pancakes I made a couple days ago first.  This is the recipe from Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian, although she calls them “Chinese stuffed pancakes”.  [...]
