Leftover veggie quiche with potato crust

This was actually something I made on the spur of the moment with what little was left in the fridge before shopping.  Unfortunately I don’t remember exactly what that WAS because this was over a week ago now, but I know there’s carrots, spinach and bell pepper in there at any rate…that might even be [...]

Whole Wheat Waffles with Red Wine and Mushroom Gravy

So I know I said I’d be better about posting…but then I went and got the flu or something like it, and became a bum.  I still feel pretty darn sick, but that’s why I’m sitting on the couch posting…I can’t do much of anything else successfully right now.  I HAVE been cooking though…something about [...]

Mushroom Bouillabaisse

I’m not generally an Emeril Lagasse fan, frankly he says “um” a lot which I find to be the MOST annoying trait in a tv personality, I know from seeing his bio once that he’s a pretty weak excuse for a family man, and the whole “BAM!” thing just rings fake to me.  But all [...]

Seitan Lo Mein

Since I don’t use msg in my cooking (although I had a roommate at one point who did…she left a shaker of the stuff out on the counter at all times) the Chinese food I made never tastes exactly like takeout, but it gets pretty darn close.  I’ve done lo mein before (it’s a favorite [...]

Cranberry Beans and Lemony-Roasted Veggies

This was an evening of beautiful vegetables, and when you have beautiful vegetables, the preparation should be as simple as possible.  First off, I got my first ever cranberry beans, which look awesome on the outside, and on the inside when you shell the fresh beans.  Unfortunately when cooked, all the color leeches out into [...]

Garden Bounty

Last but not least, lest you think I’ve been lazy and wasteful of my kitchen time, I bring you “preserves”.  They aren’t really preserves, since there isn’t even any fruit, but I have trouble calling something “canning” when I’m putting it in jars.  Does that make it jarring?  I always thought that was a bad [...]

Italian Feast Lasagna

To a lot of people, lasagna means layers of meat between sauce and cheese.  To me, it’s never meant that, even long before I was a veggie, I was always kosher, and so meat and cheese doesn’t fly.  Since I use no meat and very little cheese these days, I figured it was high time [...]

Calzone

I apologize in advance that this one is not Vegan, but can easily be made so by using a Vegan cheese product or tofu ricotta….oooh, I should’ve gone the tofu ricotta route….that sounds delicious.  I’ve actually never made a calzone before, but we were thinking pizza last night and I decided “why not take it [...]

Ramen Noodle Soup

I really wish I remembered what I put in this…it was basically everything except the kitchen sink and the seasoning packet.  I even added a cornstarch slurry to thicken things up at the end, although it didn’t really work.  As it stands, you will have to suffice with a picture…and come up with your own [...]

Couscous with Tofu

I wasn’t in the mood to cook much (if at all…has it been hot and humid forever???) so my first thought was couscous.  You really only need to boil water for the couscous itself, and by the time you pour in the grain you can turn off the heat, so in terms of summer foods…it’s [...]
