Oven Baked Tofu with Peppers and Onions

There aren’t many flavor combinations I like better than peppers and onions…while I may not eat sausage, I’ll readily admit to purchasing some tofurkey beer brats every summer for just that reason…grilled up and then buried under a mound of the sauteed veggies, which I just can’t get enough of.  I’ve done the combo with [...]

More Tester Recipes

I wish I had some original recipes to share with you today but no such luck….I can say I made the sopapillas(?) from Viva Vegan and they’re delicious, but I forgot to take a picture… What is pictured here, are a couple more tester recipes from the Diet, Dessert and Dogs e-book that’s coming soon! [...]

Lots of Beans and some Cheese Sauce covered Potatoes

Since it’s winter, I’m pretty sure that the only thing I’m allowed to make any more is stew….in some variety.  Even if it’s not exactly meant to be a stew, that seems to be what everything ends up as lately, and with all the cold and snow, I can’t say I’m complaining…although we got something [...]

Skillet Baked Pasta and Veggies

I’ve done pasta frittata, I’ve done plain old pasta in sauce with veggies, but I don’t often do the oven-baked pasta “casserole” that my mother made often when I was a kid.  I didn’t want to fill this one with ricotta and cheese like those pasta casseroles of my childhood, but I did include the [...]

Potato-Turnip Green Soup and Green Thai Curry

I’m not entirely sure what makes potato-kale soup latina…it’s a dish I’ve done before in several varieties, and I don’t find it terribly innovative in a Vegan cookbook anymore, but it’s good nonetheless (especially with the days cooling down as they have been) and I did like the addition of some fried-up sausage on top.  [...]

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 [...]

Savory Indian Sweet Potatoes and Chickpea Curry over Rice

These two things are pretty different and not really both necessary in a single meal, but I figured since I was making one I might as well do both and have leftovers…which is how it went down, and not to surprise, I loved the one I’d had before and was lukewarm about the other, although [...]

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 [...]

Asparagus and Mustard Stir-fry with crisp tofu and peppers in a Spicy Sauce

As a matter of course, I am suspicious of anything that titles itself the “Complete Vegetarian Cookbook”  I don’t know why it’s considered acceptable in the Vegan/Vegetarian cookbook sector to call recipe collections “complete”, or “everything”, or “the end all be all”.  No other cookbook would claim to have every recipe ever, so how can [...]

Sausage, Pepper and Onion Pasta

Sausage, peppers and onions is pretty much a match made in heaven, and it was just what I wanted the other night for dinner…I simple wasn’t feeling the bun.  So what to do?  Why replace one carb with another of course, and sausage with onions and peppers over pasta it was.  While I often make [...]
