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 [...]

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 [...]

Cucumber-Tomato Salad, Pot Roast Seitan, Cornbread, and Green Bean Pepper Salad

With the exception of the quick salad I whipped up, all of these recipes came from the Passionate Vegetarian, a cookbook that is seriously undervalued in my kitchen, considering how much it has to offer.  I wasn’t a huge fan of the green beans, which ended up tasting very “mustardy” but I did like the [...]

First Meal Back: Asparagus with Tomato Relish

Well for better or worse..I’m back from the amazing program in California.  I was pretty concerned about having someone else cook for me an entire month, but I needn’t have worried…Miguel (the head cook there) is AMAZING and makes more than enough food options at every meal to please everyone.  I did miss complex carbs [...]

What I ate for Cinco De Mayo

First off, have you entered the giveaway yet?  Even if you don’t want to make creme brulee, who doesn’t want a culinary torch?  Trust me…that thing is just plain fun…think Veggie French Onion Soup…Scroll down two entries and leave a comment for your chance! Now back to Cinco De Mayo, where I skipped the Margaritas [...]

Fried Rice style Couscous

We all crave Chinese food sometimes (and if you say those little cardboard cartons full of grease and carbs don’t call out to you on occasion, you are either a stronger person than me….or lying.  So there.  That craving hit the other night, but I was of the belief that I could satisfy it without [...]

More Matzoh Meals

I am SO sick of Passover food…you can put a big bowl of pasta in front of me anytime now and I’d be the happiest person on earth, but I’ve still got about 36 hours to go, sigh.  That said, I’ve got several Passover friendly recipes that I’ve made this week and have been pretty [...]

More from “Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker”

I think I’m done slow-cooking for a bit, but I just had to share the last couple recipes I made from this new cookbook.  One of them is called “Green Bean and White Bean Casserole” and is a lot like that commercial classic, THE Green Bean Casserole, except minus all the gross chemical filled stuff [...]

BLT Pasta and Veggie Pot Pie

I’ve been watching a lot of Food Network lately, and apparently this is where it gets me….Veggie-versions of Rachael Ray and Chef Anne Burrell recipes.  The BLT pasta recipe was actually veggie to begin with, which I find pretty ridiculous, because frankly I would’ve put bacon in it if it was something I ate, and [...]

Diet, Dessert and Dogs…times 3

So one of my favorite Vegan Blog reads is over at Diet, Dessert n Dogs where pretty much EVERYTHING pictured looks absolutely mouth-watering, and makes me want to eat it NOW.  This week I decided to give a few of the recipes I’d been lusting after a try, and wasn’t disappointed, although one was a [...]
