Random Eatings

I was in the mood for some good ole sausage and peppers the other day, and went back to a classic Vegan Dad Recipe for sausages.  I replaced the Pinto Beans with Cannolini, and basically threw in half my spice rack, but other then that I stuck with the original.  While the sausages were steaming [...]

Sausage, Pepper and Onion Pasta

Sausage, peppers and onions is pretty much a match made in heaven, and it was just what I wanted the other night for dinner…I simple wasn’t feeling the bun.  So what to do?  Why replace one carb with another of course, and sausage with onions and peppers over pasta it was.  While I often make [...]

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 [...]

Chili Dogs and Beer-battered Seitan

I used the classic simple seitan recipe from V’con, and made a pretty standard beer batter with flour, baking soda, paprika, and beer. fried in some canola oil. I set these up with some [...]

Fajitas and Samosa Stuffed Baked Potatoes

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 [...]

Polenta Rounds and Pesto-y Pasta

I’ve had this “log” of polenta sitting in my pantry for a while now, and I finally felt up to the challenge of using it. I had one shared ingredient for last night’s dinner, which was the broccoli rabe. I wilted down the rabe in some balsamic, with a sprinkle of chili flakes, salt and [...]

Apple-Cranberry Sausages

I’ve been excited about giving these a shot ever since I saw them over at Pamela Cooks. I’ve posted the direct link to the recipe on her blog, so that you’re able to easily check it out. As luck would have it, the huge chain-grocery store I do my shopping at…doesn’t carry dried apples. After [...]
