Latin-Baked Tofu Tacos and Raddish Chipatis

This is where the “diet” started a bit…with some of the latin-baked tofu from Viva Vegan, which wasn’t actually baked, since I was short on time and cooked it up in a pan with a bit of non-stick spray instead and that was served up on some corn  tortillas with a handful of baby spinach, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Tofu Tacos and Beans n’ Rice

There were 4 corn tacos heading towards retirement age in the fridge, and I decided that meant Mexican, which also led to the first time I’ve actually ever made beans n rice.  The tacos were ok, but the rice was AMAZING, so that’s the recipe I’ll share with you. Ingredients 1 1/4 cups jasmine rice [...]

Veggie Logs

This is my last recipe (at least for the time being) from Just the Food and it was a good one, although it didn’t photograph the best.  I’m not sure if it was the peanut butter or what, but these stayed together better than any TVP recipe I’ve made in the past, and I was [...]

Mexican Black Bean Salad

We did Mexican tonight, which I didn’t really bother taking pictures of, since frankly, you’ve all seen a taco before, been there, done that.  I made the tortillas from scratch as I sometimes do, using the recipe found here, obviously using vegetable shortening in my rendition.  There was also some pre-packaged lemon-pepper tempeh that I [...]

Fajitas and Samosa Stuffed Baked Potatoes

I got some small tortillas when we last went shopping, and had been yearning for something Mexican inspired. Enter fajitas…(I have no clue what the difference between soft tacos and fajitas really is, but who cares.) Fajitas sound cooler. The “meat” for these were my remaining sausages, sliced on an angle and fried up until [...]
