Pomegranite Tofu, Black Bean Burgers and Cretan Stew

The Black Bean burger from V’con is an old favorite of mine that I hadn’t done in awhile, and when I was poking around in the pantry the other day and saw a few cans of black beans, I knew what I had to do.  My favorite part of these is actually how well they [...]

Green Beans with Shitakes and Orange Seitan

I used the Brand Name Chinese Cookbook again last night, with mixed results.  The green bean and shitake recipe which I followed to a T was pretty good, if not entirely mind-blowing.  Since I’ve been doing chinese food lately I’ve also been using a lot of cornstarch, which I’m not too keen on, but that’ll [...]

Winner, winner tempeh dinner!

This was sooooo good.  Like I ‘just can’t stop thinking about it and imagining the next time’ good.  Not thoughts I have often about tempeh, but oh MAN did this recipe do it for me.  I wish I could say I’d come up with this, but the stroke of genius goes elsewhere this time.  I [...]

Sesame Peanut Noodles and Orange-Rhubarb Jam

I needed dinner the other night, and we literally had NO food…so I had to go back to “what’s always in the kitchen” and the answer to that is soba noodles and peanut butter.  Fortunately all the other ingredients for this happened to be available as well, so I went with this recipe.  I replaced [...]

Better yet, my sister and her guy were here this weekend, and unbeknown to the happy omnivores, I fed them Vegan [...]

Orange Seitan

Orange Beef is another popular Chinese dish that I remember from my childhood…and since I was making some seitan for a sweet and sour dish coming later this weekend, I decided to double the recipe and make some orange seitan over rice as well. I used the simple seitan recipe from V’con as usual, and [...]

Fennel Orange Salad and Sopa de Ajo

I found a Sephardic cookbook in the library last week, and just had to check it out. For those unfamiliar, Jews are basically divided into two groups based on their family origin. More well known around these parts are the Ashkenazim….or Jews from Eastern Europe. We have the Ashkenazim to thank for quintessential Jewish dishes [...]
