Stuffed Mushrooms and Green Curry

For some reason I’ve had NO appetitive the last couple days. Throughout the day I have less than zero desire to eat, and when I force myself to do so, I can only choke down a few bites before feeling like I am about to explode. Considering I usually eat enough for two…this is VERY [...]

Tempeh and Onions

This was a simple dish made to round out a meal of leftovers. I also made a pretty sweet salad combining the spicy citrus vinaigrette from V’con with half a papaya that met its fate on the mandolin. Sadly the salad never got as far as pictures, but it looked pretty average anyway, nothing telling [...]

Syrian Tomato Salad and Tuscan Zucchini Pie

I was feeling pretty global last night, so I decided to pull out Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian and see what she had to say that worked with my fridge contents. Her first offering was a Tuscan Zucchini pie, that looked an awful lot like a quiche without the crust. I replaced the egg in 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, [...]

Asian Slaw, Baked Beans with “Dogs” and V’con Baked Lima Beans

This was a multi-part meal, designed with the purpose of finishing off the perishable fridge contents before they well…perish. This dinner was actually very BBQ-Esq., minus the need for an actual grill or barbequing action. The purpose of the slaw was to finish off the head of napa cabbage that’s been rolling around in my [...]

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 [...]

Carrot Salad and Vietnamese Spring Rolls

I’m continuing with my “summer food” theme, which basically means that I only make things that can be eaten cold…unfortunately that does not necessarily mean that they don’t require cooking at some point. First off is a salad that I stole from Rachael Ray…sort of. I saw her make it a long time ago on [...]

Potato Salad and Seitan Cutlets with Chili Chocolate Mole

Considering I totally made it up as I went, this potato salad is really good. In fact I’ll probably make it the same way again and again in the future. It started off with chunked, boiled potatoes, and acquired whatever I had in the fridge along its journey. Ingredients 2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, washed [...]

Corn-Edamame Salad, Vegetable Sushi…and desert!!!

It was perfect out yesterday, so I felt the need to compliment the weather with a perfect summer meal (enjoyed out on the balcony with some iced tea of course). We started things off with the corn-edamame salad from V’con. This took less than 5 minutes to make, and was quite yummy. It definitely gets [...]

Mango-Quinoa Salad and Portabella Burgers

It’s been really hot and humid the last couple days…so we lugged the grill back out onto the porch (according to building rules we don’t have one, so SHHH!) and made it a little hotter. Earlier in the day, I’d marinated a couple portabella caps in a mixture of balsamic vinegar, olive oil,cooking sherry, and [...]
