Vegan Passover Kugel

I’m already very much over this whole Passover thing—although I must admit my diet is much more varied then back in the days when I had to survive Passover at a University Cafeteria….8 days of salad and nothing but salad got REAL old.  I was at my parents for the first couple nights and brought [...]

Potato Kasha Knishes

I saw a package of buckwheat at the Asian Market last week, and knew immediately that I wanted it…and what I would be making once I possesed said treat.  Every now and then the Eastern European Jew in me floats its way up to the surface, and this was no exception, because I was thinking [...]

Potato-spinach Knishes, VwaV Pad Thai, Hoisen Tofu Lettuce Wraps, and Red Velvet Mole

So I’m finally back from vacation, things are starting to settle back into a rhythm (just starting, I’ve got a ways to go yet) and I figured it’s time I write a bit about the last couple things I made before leaving for the West Coast, as well as the first couple meals I made [...]

Skillet Baked Pasta and Veggies

Middle Eastern Chickpea Miniburgers

Italian Vegetable Soup and Maple Mustard Baked Veggies

I made a soup that was in the grocery circular…and it was ok, but nothing special.  Here: Tomato Sauce, broth and lots of veggies was the name of the game…it would’ve been better with some fresh breadsticks or something to dip.  It’s also getting  a bit warm for soup, so maybe that’s why I was [...]

Garlicky Kale with Tahini Sauce and Tempeh Potato Hash

So the other night I decided to try out a VWAV recipe that I’d been eying…the garlicky kale and tahini sauce.  I am absolutely IN LOVE with this tahini sauce, and totally intend to make use of it with my next batch of falafel, but I just wasn’t as excited about the kale.  My kale [...]
