Tofu Banh Mi

If you’re anywhere near as Food Network obsessed as I am (and hopefully you aren’t because I’ve started having dreams about Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and that’s a problem) you probably caught an episode or two of the Great Food Truck Race this past summer.  My favorite truck for the duration of the show was [...]

Potato Salad, Spaghetti Squash, Vanilla Carrots, Lingonberry-Turkey Sandwiches, Quick Kimchee, Sausage/Sundried Tomato Pasta and Steak and Cheese

So I’m fairly certain this is a my longest title ever, and it’s all because I’ve simply been too busy to blog.  Life has been piling up and there are a lot of exciting things going on, and while I’ve still been cooking and eating, I just haven’t been able to post on a daily [...]

Tempeh and Tomato Relish on Bread

Making a sandwich for dinner can often feel like the easy way out, but then again, some sandwiches are AWESOME and you really wouldn’t want anything else for your evening meal.  This ranks up there with the AWESOME sandwiches.  It’s also got plenty of protein with the tempeh, so you won’t walk away feeling unfulfilled. [...]

Tempeh-Mango Salad Sandwiches and a Peak at my “Garden”

  When I saw the first mangos of the season, I knew I had to make the mango-tempeh salad sandwiches from VwaV.  Biggest lesson?  Don’t buy mangoes until we’re actually INTO the season, they were pretty weak.  One of the two never got ripe, and the one that felt perfect was stringy and somewhat brown [...]

“Tuna” Salad and Lemon-Cherry Squares

The tuna salad recipe came from Lindyloo over at Yeah That Vegan Shit who got it from…somewhere else. I had to replace the red onion with white and I’d finished my celery in the wonton soup the day before, but I kept everything else more or less the same. Instead of kelp powder (which I [...]

Tofu Dill Salad Sandwiches

I’m becoming a very big fan of lunch…I’ve been rediscovering the sandwich of late. Today I went with the Tofu Dill Sandwiches from VwaV, mostly because the ingredients were really basic and I had them…mostly. I had to replace the red onion with white, and the fresh dill with its dried counterpart. All the same, [...]

Tempeh Reuben

Since I’m back on 3-11s 4 days a week, I’ve been making myself lunch and eating a conglomeration of fruit and leftovers for dinner while at work. I’m really unhappy with it, but there isn’t much choice, so today, I’m sharing some lunch: I made the tempeh reuben from VwaV with a couple minor changes. [...]

Wakame Soba Noodle Soup and a TLT

I was trying to decide how to stick to one ethnicity/food style for dinner tonight….and somehow we ended up having TLTs (tempeh, lettuce, tomato) and a wakame-soba noodle soup. The soup was a recipe from Vegetarian Planet and it was ok. Just ok. I do like the wakame, which I’m used to from the miso [...]

Beer Brats and Garlic-Stuffed Potatoes

The recipe for the brats came from Yellow Rose Recipes, and the idea to top them with onions and peppers is from B36 Kitchen. The sausages were o.k….I’ve made and eaten better. To be honest these were rather bready and bland, things I should have thought of during the mixing process because I could have [...]

Apple-Brie Sandwiches with Onion Chutney

This was another Vegetarian Planet recipe, delicious, yet simple. We were out of bread, so I used some remaining burger rolls, which worked out great when pressed under a cast iron skillet. (Great for making mufelleta’s as well) The crispness of the granny smith apple coupled with the sweetness of the homemade onion chutney and [...]
