Runzas and Pad Thai (Again)

A couple weeks ago I’d never heard of a runza.  It’s too bad really, because MAN are these things good.  I got the recipe off the PPK blog where basically everything involved sauerkraut lately, and instead of seitan, used the chick’n strips I got with my coupons from Lightlife.  I gave the chick’n a quick [...]

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 [...]

Pomegranite Tofu, Black Bean Burgers and Cretan Stew

The Black Bean burger from V’con is an old favorite of mine that I hadn’t done in awhile, and when I was poking around in the pantry the other day and saw a few cans of black beans, I knew what I had to do.  My favorite part of these is actually how well they [...]

A Little of Everything

So I keep meaning to get back to posting daily…and it just isn’t happening.  I still love cooking and taking pictures of the food I make, it’s just the actual posting that I’m getting bad at.  I will fix it though…I PROMISE.  Don’t lose hope.  A lot of the food I’ve been making lately is [...]

Spaghetti Squash with Alfreda

Is it weird that I’m starting to think I like spaghetti squash more than the actual pasta?  It’s not even a carb-conscious thing (trust me, I have NO issue with carbs) the stuff is just amazing.  I got the world’s largest squash this week, and baked it in the oven so I could scoop out [...]

Farner’s Market Millet, V’con Ceasar Salad and a Blondie…sort of

I scored a few cool things at yesterday’s farmer’s market, and they all went into dinner.  I knew I had to return to the V’con Ceasar salad as soon as I saw a head of romaine larger than a regulation basketball, and that’s exactly what I did, picking up an Italian loaf from a local [...]

Mango-Ginger Tofu and Sesame-Ginger-Miso Dressing

I never thought I’d say this, but there is such a thing as “too much mango”.  I’ll go head and admit it, the Mango-Ginger tofu from VwaV was too much mango for me.   I could only handle a small helping of this stuff because it was just so overpoweringly sweet and mango-ey.  There was no [...]

Fettucini Alfreda and Butternut-Pumpkin Seed Rice Paper Rolls

This was actually two separate meals, but in the interest of er…space, I’m posting them together.  Last night’s dinner was the Fettuccine Alfreda recipe from VwaV: The pasta is topped liberally with Bac-uns, pretty much my favorite food EVER.  I’m also not sure exactly what makes this sauce remotely related to an alfredo, but I [...]

Tempeh-Mango Salad Sandwiches and a Peak at my “Garden”

  When I saw the first mangos of the season, I knew I had to make the mango-tempeh salad sandwiches from VwaV.  Biggest lesson?  Don’t buy mangoes until we’re actually INTO the season, they were pretty weak.  One of the two never got ripe, and the one that felt perfect was stringy and somewhat brown [...]

Chickpea Spinach Curry

This is a pretty standard curry…Easy enough to make for lunch (as I did) but nothing terribly spectacular. The recipe is from VwaV, I suggest you find it there, increase the salt a bit and limit all the other spices accordingly.  That’s what I did, and the salt turned out just right and all the [...]
