The Rabbinowitz Family Cookbook

These were all food made in one dinner early last week…and since then I’ve been eating a lot of salads…salads in bowls…salads in wraps…salads disassembled….this is what happens when I go clothes shopping, and don’t like what I see when trying on an article of clothing.  There is something of a diet going on right [...]

The Passionate Vegetarian Returns

I decided to pull out a cookbook I hadn’t used in awhile (or if I’m honest, much at all) yesterday and see what I could scrounge up based on what was in the fridge. First off, I gave the ‘Spicy Eggplant with Buckwheat Noodles’ a shot, which sounded pretty good…but totally didn’t do it for [...]

Ministrone-Chili

So I set out intending to make a minestrone…but  I didn’t really have any fresh vegetables with the exception of spinach and two mushrooms, and I apparently didn’t put enough liquid in….so this turned out closer to a chili…which isn’t bad…and probably put the universe back at equilibrium since the chili I made a couple [...]

Mushroom Spaghetti and Two more Tester Recipes

I’d been wanting to try the recipe for Mushroom Fettuccine in Appetite for Reduction for awhile, and even though I didn’t have the mushroom soup or mushrooms called for, I made due with what I DID have, and this came out SOOOO good, possibly my favorite pasta dish ever.  (And I realize I say that [...]

Lots of Beans and some Cheese Sauce covered Potatoes

Since it’s winter, I’m pretty sure that the only thing I’m allowed to make any more is stew….in some variety.  Even if it’s not exactly meant to be a stew, that seems to be what everything ends up as lately, and with all the cold and snow, I can’t say I’m complaining…although we got something [...]

Peruvian Lima Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad and Creamy Corn Empanadas

This week it was back to Mexican food….Viva Vegan more specifically.  The first recipe was the lima bean, corn and tomato salad from the book….which was ok.  Maybe this is more exciting with the called-for cilantro, I’m not sure since I decided to leave the green out, although I added a healthy dosing of coriander [...]

Chipotle, Corn and Black bean Stew

I hadn’t pulled Vegan with a Vengeance down in awhile, and I decided it was time to give something new a shot…preferably something for which I already had all the called-for ingredients.  Enter the Chipotle, Corn, and Black Bean Stew.  (page 60)  I didn’t actually have chipotles so I should probably change the name…I used [...]

Pesto Vegetable Pizza

There’s nothing quite like a pizza with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes on it…those are my favorite toppings at a Western Massachusetts Pizza place of choice, and it’s even better when I can top my own, and add lots of other goodies as well.  Corn on pizza is something you see a lot of in Israel [...]

Black Bean Soup and Orange Mojo Tofu

Guess What?  Viva La Vegan strikes again!  This time I gave the black bean soup and Orange Mojo Tofu a try and was absolutely in love with both.  I’ll admit I cheated and used canned beans for the soup, but other than that I followed all the directions, and was quite pleased with the result.  [...]

Quick Red Posole with Beans

I did warn you that I’d probably be making nothing but Mexican food for awhile, and this one, also from Viva la Vegan is no exception….it is also probably my new favorite comfort food…hands down.   Then again I have a new favorite comfort food every two weeks…I’m just a flip-flopper like that. I followed the [...]
