Sesame Asparagus and an Old Favorite Improved

I made a green salad with the homemade miso dressing from Vegetarian Planet as well, but it isn’t pictured. I said there would be more asparagus if they continued to look so delicious, and here it is: This is the sesame asparagus recipe from VwaV, which is really simple, but good. I’ve never had an [...]

Tofu Dill Salad Sandwiches

I’m becoming a very big fan of lunch…I’ve been rediscovering the sandwich of late. Today I went with the Tofu Dill Sandwiches from VwaV, mostly because the ingredients were really basic and I had them…mostly. I had to replace the red onion with white, and the fresh dill with its dried counterpart. All the same, [...]

Meatloaf (The Band) and Banana Split Pudding Brownies

Being somewhat fed up with the crumbly, rather bland, veggie meatloafs I’ve had in the past, I decided it was high time to try one of my own….and I was pretty happy with the results. It was somewhat crumbly until it had cooled for awhile and set up, but it still held its shape much [...]

Tempeh Reuben

Since I’m back on 3-11s 4 days a week, I’ve been making myself lunch and eating a conglomeration of fruit and leftovers for dinner while at work. I’m really unhappy with it, but there isn’t much choice, so today, I’m sharing some lunch: I made the tempeh reuben from VwaV with a couple minor changes. [...]

Spinach Vichyssoise with Stewed Tofu and Potatoes in Miso Gravy

I’d never actually made a Vichyssoise before, and frankly I think the name is rather ridiculous. Basically it’s a creamed veggie soup with lots of milk…or in my case, soy milk. Big whoop. This version came from Vegetarian Planet and it was ok…the salt and pepper were what made it, otherwise this pretty much would’ve [...]

Sweet Potato-Watercress Hash, Stir-Fried Turnip Greens, and Asian Marinated Tofu

I realize that the sweet potato hash recipe in VwaV is supposed to be a breakfast food, but I really don’t think I’d want it for breakfast. The sweet potatoes are very rich and savory, and watercress is simply not a breakfast vegetable as far as I’m concerned. Don’t get me wrong, this was REALLY [...]

Carrot Bisque and Cornmeal Blueberry Sunshine Muffins

This was another VwaV night, and as has been my experience with the cookbook, a total success. I’d never made a carrot soup before, but decided it was high time to give it a try, and I’m happy that I did. This actually reminded me a lot of baby food, which is totally not a [...]

Pepper Bake and Pad Thai

The pepper bake is actually a thicker version of a flatbread, and is VERY good. The recipe came from Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian and was real easy to make. There’s no yeast involved, as I’m sure you can tell from the picture, although it does require you to cover and leave it alone for an [...]

Pink Bean and Quinoa Croquettes with Mushroom Sauce, and Italian Tofu over Wilted Spinach

Who ever would’ve thought to do a croquette with quinoa? I swear Isa is a genius… I was worried these would never stay together, but I’m glad to report that I was dead wrong. Until they were hit with a fork, these held their shape perfectly, and that’s all I can ask for. Recipe from [...]

Maple-Mustard Glazed Potatoes and String Beans

VwaV…you went off, and you did it again, these are AMAZING. As usual I went ahead and jazzed things up a bit by mincing a hot pepper and adding it to the mix, but the sauce was all Isa. I could’ve eaten the entire casserole dish worth of this by myself, but sadly, I had [...]
