Food Round-up

The largest meal I make every week is for Sabbath dinner on Friday nights, and generally I don’t share it here since I’m not taking pictures after sundown on Friday night.  Much of the meal was not out yet, but I did snap a couple pictures of appetizers this past week, so you can check [...]

Comfort Food Diet

Since with the first week of spring came snow (obviously) I figured I’d try some less salad-inspired dishes from Appetite for Reduction and see how I felt about some warming diet food.  First off was the orange scented broccoli with caulipots…although I didn’t have any OJ or oranges, and used granulated orange and orange blossom [...]

Asparagus Oatmeal and Lemoney Potatoes

Just thought I’d post a couple cookbook recipes I ate this week and snapped quick pictures of… The first is an asparagus-oatmeal “soup” from The Passionate Vegetarian it was interesting and filling, but I’m not sure it’s something I’d do again.  I’m not a huge oatmeal person to begin with, and savory renditions of it [...]

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 [...]

Pineapple Collards over Polenta Stuffing and Brussel Hash

More adventures from the wild world of Appetite for Reduction…I’m moving on to other things soon, I swear.  As far as the collards go, these were pretty good and they’re a nice change from my standard collards recipe so I’m sure I’ll come back to it at some point, although a bit of spice would’ve [...]

Potato Chickpea Enchiladas and Arroz con Seitan from Vive Vegan

This is basically just a picture post…because I don’t want to break copyright laws, and if you don’t have Vive Vegan yet…what on earth are you waiting for????  I’m totally in love with the Arroz con Seitan on page 145 pictured here…I was out of peas so I replaced them with corn but otherwise followed [...]

Chipotle, Corn and Black bean Stew

I hadn’t pulled Vegan with a Vengeance down in awhile, and I decided it was time to give something new a shot…preferably something for which I already had all the called-for ingredients.  Enter the Chipotle, Corn, and Black Bean Stew.  (page 60)  I didn’t actually have chipotles so I should probably change the name…I used [...]

Potato Roti Curry with Gluten-free Apple Crisp for Dessert

The Potato Roti Curry is another test recipe from Cooking Light Way to Cook Vegetarian, and this one is actually 100% Vegan!    I couldn’t wait to try this, especially since it looked like stew and with the fist snow a week or so behind us and temperatures dipping by the day, it is officially soup [...]

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.  [...]

Have Some Junk Food will you?

It looks like I went to White Castle….rest assured, I would never do such a thing, but our meal the other night certainly had the look: I made the All-American Grillers from Just the Food, and set them up with some of my standard lemon-caper mayo and a side of fries.  These aren’t even the [...]
