Mojo Seitan and Enchiladas

Mmmm enchiladas, nuff said.  As far as food goes, I’d have to say I grew up in a fusion household.  I don’t think it was intentional, but when I think back on it, my mother’s top specialties were (are) falafel (Middle Eastern), Kugel (straight up Ashkenazic Jew food), Stir Fry (Asian) and enchiladas(Mexican-ish).  Lasagna made [...]

Skillet Baked Pasta and Veggies

I’ve done pasta frittata, I’ve done plain old pasta in sauce with veggies, but I don’t often do the oven-baked pasta “casserole” that my mother made often when I was a kid.  I didn’t want to fill this one with ricotta and cheese like those pasta casseroles of my childhood, but I did include the [...]

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.  [...]

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 [...]

Mushroom and Onion “Pizza”

I’m thankful my roommate stole a slice of this on her way out the door the other night…it’s frightening enough that I ate the other 5/6 in a single sitting, considering it is a large pizza sized crust, but I simply couldn’t seem to stop myself, since it was so darn GOOD.  I got a [...]

Scalloped Pattypan Casserole

There are few things that I find more aggravating then to type and entire blog entry with photos/recipe and all..only to have wordpress log out and the entire thing vanish without a trace the second I hit submit.  That happened the first time I created this post, and I needed to blow off steam for [...]

Battered Tomato Salad and Baingan Bhartha

Everyone’s heard of fried green tomatoes, but large green tomatoes are hard to come by in these parts, and frankly whenever I pick up a large heirloom, I have an overwhelming desire to fry it.  What can I say?  They just seem to call out for the treatment.  This was a large yellow and orange [...]

Cold Chickpea Salad and Mushroom Stuffed Eggplant

This is going to sound weird…but while I love falafel and Hummus (basically two different forms of chickpeas) I generally don’t like the things whole…if it actually looks like a chickpea…9 times out of 10, I’m not interested.  It was REALLY hot last week though, and I simply didn’t have the patience to make hummus, [...]

Lemon Basil Oven-Baked Tofu over Pasta

One of the things I like best about the Market I go to (along with the fact that it’s fully Vegetarian AND kosher, is the seasonal produce they bring in…and how it changes almost constantly.  The selection actually looks a lot like that at the farmer’s market and much of it comes from the same [...]

Indian Loaf and Spinach

I had been craving Indian flavors, and although the recipe I was looking at called for a quinoa loaf with absolutely nothing Indian about it, I felt I could take it in an India direction, and that’s exactly what I did…although it’s pretty darn spicy, so I wouldn’t recommend eating without a healthy dollop of [...]
