Spicy Tempeh and Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

This was a QUICK comfort meal…one that begin when Jeopardy ended at 7:30 and was served by the time House started at 8. Rachael Ray would’ve been so proud. I don’t know if the average person thinks mashed potatoes when they need to put together meals in a hurry, but then I’m not the average [...]

Veggie Balls, Curry Sauce, and Naan

This was another Indian-inspired meal, the main course of which came from the “American Indian Cookbook” as well. I’d decided I really wanted to make the ‘vegetable balls in classic curry sauce’, mostly because the name sounded kind of amusing. In the end I decided not to finish the balls in the sauce, I was [...]

African Stew over Couscous

It got pretty chilly last night, so I was in the mood for something hearty…enter stew. I picked out the African Stew from Vegetarian Planet only to discover that I didn’t have three of the vegetables…which basically made up the soup. I decided to improvise anyway, and replaced sweet potato, collards and cauliflower with baby [...]

Roasted Veggie Pasta and Lemoney Roasted Potatoes

I love roasting vegetables…simply because you can use pretty much anything you have on hand (with the exception of leafy greens), and they take on this amazing tender sweetness I can’t seem to achieve any other way. Today’s stars were baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, a zucchini, a red onion, and a spoonful of garlic. The [...]

Carribean Potato Salad and a Survey

I thought I’d share with you a tiny bit of food porn, see Carribean Potato Salad: and a survey. The salad is from Vegetarian Planet (like most everything else I’ve been cooking lately) and comes highly recommended. You definitely need to let it chill though…it’s mediocre at best warm. Now it’s time for the survey, [...]

Chickpea Cutlets and Potato Muffins

This was created to be a fairly simple comfort-food meal, and it filled that role nicely. I’ve made the chickpea cutlets from Veganomicon before (pre-blog) but they came out a bit different this time. I think I used a bit less vital wheat gluten than usual, and fried them a little longer than before, so [...]

Mashed Potatoes, BBQ Tofu and Zucchini Bread

I was in the mood for a very classic American, comfort food style dinner. To me (feel free to disagree) the best comfort food on EARTH is a big bowl of mashed potatoes, and I made a big pot of it tonight so I could do just that. I kicked it up a notch by [...]

A little backtracking

We’re back from vacation (sadly) and I have one more post to catch up on before I start cooking again. We were trying to finish up the reminder of the fridge contents before leaving, so it’s not the most exciting meal…just to warn you. I started off with a simple salad of spinach leaves, julienned [...]

Fajitas and Samosa Stuffed Baked Potatoes

I got some small tortillas when we last went shopping, and had been yearning for something Mexican inspired. Enter fajitas…(I have no clue what the difference between soft tacos and fajitas really is, but who cares.) Fajitas sound cooler. The “meat” for these were my remaining sausages, sliced on an angle and fried up until [...]

Breakfast Hash

This was basically corned beef hash…without the corn beef. That said, I’ve never had or made corned beef hash, so I actually don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. Two sentences in…and I’ve already undermined my own authority. You can’t tell me however, that you wouldn’t want this for breakfast.\ I took a couple [...]
