Slow-Cooker Garden Chili and Cinnamon Rolls

I think that a lot of people may find this combination to be rather odd, but cinnamon rolls and chili were a very usual meal for me during my teenage years (my high school cafeteria served it regularly). Many people from my hometown claim that this meal is unique to that particular city, so I […]

Slow-Cooker BBQ Seitan (Brisket Style)

A while back I posted a recipe for Vegan BBQ Brisket (Seitan). It was absolutely delicious, but I couldn’t resist revisiting the concept of a BBQ brisket made from seitan after I discovered how easy it is to make seitan roasts in a slow-cooker. My original recipe was prepared using the usual method of foil […]

There are a few rules for this award: thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their site put the award logo […]

Peanut Butter Fudge Swirl Cheesecake {gluten free, vegan}

One of the most common questions I get is “Where do you get your protein?”. Generally I rattle off the usual vegan protein list (tofu, quinoa, nuts, seeds, legumes, whole grains, leafy greens, you know… the places where all those muscle-y animals like cows and gorillas get their proteins. To be specific, plants). Just to […]

Garganelli with Broccoli Rabe, Red Pepper and Spring Garlic

More homemade pasta? Absolutely! This one is incredibly fun to make and absolutely delicious. The shape of garganelli pasta is very impressive when made by hand. In fact you may want to make sure that anyone you are cooking for actually sees you making it, otherwise they may not believe that you made it yourself. […]

Tandoori Tofu

I’m not sure if I love Indian food because I am obsessed with cumin, or if I love cumin because I am obsessed with Indian food… I might never figure out the answer, so I’ll give you my most recent tofu recipe instead. Speaking of being obsessed, I admit that I might be a little […]

Zucchini Taco Boats {Tofu Taco Filling, Gluten Free}

Zucchini is a vegetable that I often find challenging. I always end up making the same old things (zucchini bread or muffins, sautéed in a bit of olive oil or added to a stir fry). Zucchini season seems to drag on each year though, and it is way too easy to get tired of the […]

Spicy Grilled Portabella Mushrooms with Garlic Mashers and Asparagus

I have the best husband in the world. I really couldn’t have ended up with a more perfect guy. We had an early anniversary celebration (Our real anniversary isn’t until June, but since we are moving to Seattle in June we thought it would be fun to go ahead and celebrate before the stress of […]

Sausage, Onion and Cheese Breakfast Bake {tofu}

I can never seem to follow my own advice. I am constantly reminding myself that occasions that include providing a meal for individuals who are not vegan may not be the best times to try out new ideas. So what did I do on Easter morning? I made a dish that I had never tried […]

Farfalle Primavera

I have completely fallen in love with homemade pasta. It is so incredibly therapeutic to be able to escape to my kitchen after a long stressful day and take out all that stress on a ball of dough. I don’t think of kneading pasta dough as work, instead it is a time to gather my […]
