TLT!!!!

So….tempeh, lettuce and tomato hasn’t been in my life for awhile…I’m not sure why, since it’s such a classy combination of deliciousness…but we seem to have gone our separate ways, and yesterday I decided it was time for a reunion.  I had sandwiches on the mind, because the Foodbuzz publisher program that I’m a part [...]

Baked Pasta, Cabbage Salad, and Mock Lamb (Seitan) Stew

Everyone’s gotta have a fall back…and mine is generally a baked pasta dish of some sort…I combine cooked noodles, whatever veggies are on hand, and a really quick version of Vegan White sauce…usually with some prepared red sauce or salsa as well…top with breadcrumbs, and oven-bake.  It’s a real cop-out in terms of cooking a [...]

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, [...]

Thai Pineapple Fried Rice

When faced with leftover white rice, there really is only one thing to do….make it into fried rice!  And in this case thai-style fried rice, since I finally have a thai basil plant that’s doing well and there was an open can of crushed pineapple in the fridge.  It isn’t very traditional, since I don’t [...]

Clementine Baked Beans over Tomato-Caper Couscous

I scored a really awesome cookbook from a really awesome friend recently, and although at first I thought it was a bit late for slow cooker recipes…I’ve changed my mind.  There’s nothing wrong with a little slow-cooker action in early spring, and to be honest it doesn’t give off nearly as much heat as the [...]

Curry Tofu and Mushroom Stoup and Toori

This “stoup” make actually be my favorite Rachael Ray recipe that I’ve made…but I shouldn’t say that, because I seem to remember really enjoying some at some point.  Instead we’ll just say that it’s my favorite for this week. I did make a few changes as well, so who knows, perhaps the original isn’t even [...]

Garden Challenge Bag 2, Part 1

If you’ve been with me for a bit, you will remember the first garden challenge when Michelle gave me a bag of produce from her bounteous garden, and lo and behold, it’s happened again!!!  This time I’m making a number of different things with the produce, so there will be another entry forthcoming.  Last night [...]

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 [...]
