Pomegranate Glazed Tofu over Saffron Rice

If there’s one thing I can never dismiss, it’s a culinary challenge (think beet boobs) and when POM sent out a call for “their” bloggers to create a recipe using POM…I had to start thinking.  Now that I’ve used all the Pomegranate juice I had I’m having new ideas, but I think I’m going to [...]

I am SUCH a posting bum

I think part of the reason I haven’t posted is because I haven’t made anything horribly exciting.  The one night I did make a really nice meal for company, I didn’t take any pictures, so there’s no proof anyhow. I’d have to say the best thing I’ve made recently was the Sweet Chili Lime Tofu [...]

Spinach Pesto Pasta

If there was a gameshow where you had to speed-cook, I’d win.  And I’d make this, because I’ve got it down.  This meal came together in exactly 15 minutes from start to finish, and unlike on food network, I didn’t have any water pre-boiled or pots pre-heated.  Contrary to the picture (no time to white [...]

Italian Feast Lasagna

To a lot of people, lasagna means layers of meat between sauce and cheese.  To me, it’s never meant that, even long before I was a veggie, I was always kosher, and so meat and cheese doesn’t fly.  Since I use no meat and very little cheese these days, I figured it was high time [...]

Calzone

I apologize in advance that this one is not Vegan, but can easily be made so by using a Vegan cheese product or tofu ricotta….oooh, I should’ve gone the tofu ricotta route….that sounds delicious.  I’ve actually never made a calzone before, but we were thinking pizza last night and I decided “why not take it [...]

Couscous with Tofu

I wasn’t in the mood to cook much (if at all…has it been hot and humid forever???) so my first thought was couscous.  You really only need to boil water for the couscous itself, and by the time you pour in the grain you can turn off the heat, so in terms of summer foods…it’s [...]

A Story in Pictures

Lately I’ve been turning to Vegan Brunch for all my meals, some of which have been winners, others not as much.  I’m short on time and not terribly motivated (what can I say?  Humidity does that to me) so this is basically just going to be a list of pictures. First up, these are the [...]

Brenner!

Breakfast for dinner is ALWAYS exciting…and somehow seems to be so much more delicious than breakfast in well…the morning.  I had some leftover tempeh bacon from the BLT, so I figured I should make some “sides” for it. The waffle maker hadn’t been out in awhile, so I went back to the banana waffles from [...]

Summer Succotash

Sometimes all you want is a cold salad, and what masquerades as a simple salad but sounds so much cooler?  A succotash, of course.  This recipe is perfect for summer, although I must warn you that if you plan on leaving some of this for leftovers, you should omit the olives, because the brine overcomes [...]

Tofu Curry with Peach Chutney

We’re calling this meal Indian Fusion since I didn’t actually reference any recipes, and I’m pretty sure anything that I create by grabbing “this and that” can’t be any closer to traditional Indian food than fusion.  It was delicious though, so fusion or not, I’ll call it a success.  There were a couple peaches heading [...]
